Your opportunity

Organisations rely on controls to mitigate risk and ensure regulatory compliance. We see clients facing recurring findings raised by internal/external audit on operation of key controls or adherence to regulations and others with inefficient internal control operations with a high degree of manual work. However, with increases in the scale and importance of the global regulation landscape, complexity of their business models and significance of IT, the profile that effective risk management has within organisations is increasing.

Your role

Deloitte’s GRC offers unrivalled depth of experience in providing governance, risk, control and assurance solutions to client needs. We design, implement and provide assurance over business process and technology controls to help our clients manage the risks they face on a day-to-day basis, and help them prepare for the future. We do this by addressing the ‘cause and effect’ of control weaknesses and by embracing emerging technologies like artificial intelligence and robotics. While we advise on and implement multiple technologies, this role is focused on the SAP domain.

Our GRC team sits within our Technology and Digital Risk operating unit, which is part of Deloitte Risk Advisory, one of the fasting growing practices in Deloitte. In combination with our global leading SAP practice, we can offer unrivalled career growth & learning opportunities. Successful candidates will get the opportunity to help us develop our market offering and the potential to work closely with a huge range of clients. We deliver projects directly to Risk Advisory clients and the controls workstream on S/4 implementations alongside Deloitte Consulting.

We are looking for high performing professionals, from industry or professional services, with experience or significant interest in SAP with a specific focus and interest in managing risk and controls.

This will involve:

  • Helping clients define good practice control processes and develop long term strategic plans for ensuring continuous compliance
  • Understanding business requirements and translating them in to efficient and integrated SAP control frameworks , e.g. Design a Risk and Control Framework for SAP
  • Identifying operational, compliance or regulatory requirements and designing the relevant automated solutions to help manage/mitigate these risks
  • Helping clients resolve control failures through mitigating/compensating controls or process redesign and implementing SAP GRC technology solutions
  • To have a broader perspective of potential issues encountered when managing diverse teams and the strategies to overcome them; have a clear understanding of the firm’s commitment to creating a more inclusive culture
  • Delivering a wide range of client engagements which could include Process Control design, optimisation and automation, continuous control monitoring (CCM) GRC design, implementation and remediation
  • To build and maintain client relationships in the SAP Insights area
  • Gaining experience of various SAP technologies and understanding/managing risks associated with these

Developing our SAP Risk Advisory portfolio, by supporting business development, practice management and thought leadership activities Your work, your choice At Deloitte we believe the best impact is the value we add, not the hours we sit at our desk. We carefully consider agile ways of working, both formal and informal, that allow for the best impact for our people and our clients. Please speak to your recruiter about the working pattern that works best for you.

Location: London with occasional domestic and international travel.

Work Pattern: This is a permanent role with a degree of flexibility. We do encourage careful consideration of agile ways of working, both formal and informal arrangements that allow for the best outcomes for our people and our clients.  

Your professional experience

To qualify for the role of Senior Consultant you must have several of the following areas – it is not expected that a candidate will have all of these skills:

  • Thorough understanding of configurable automated controls for SAP across a number of core processes / modules e.g. Finance, Supply Chain, Purchasing, Order to Cash etc. - knowledge of S/4 Hana processes / changes an advantage
  • Awareness of the different elements that make-up a GRC solution e.g. People, Process and Technology
  • Ability to discuss different GRC processes (risk management, control testing and monitoring, policy management etc.) across different domains. e.g. Financial controls and IT controls and security are the most common use-cases, however the ability to discuss extending these solutions to other risk domains e.g. IT and Cyber, supplier risk, anti-bribery....etc. is desirable
  • Understanding of the configuration of SAP GRC Process Controls and ability to manage offshore teams for build and test
  • Familiarity with the processes and controls for other SAP applications like Ariba, SuccessFactors, Concur, BW etc. is an advantage
  • Familiarity with other SAP GRC partner applications is an advantage

Your service line: Risk Advisory

In Risk Advisory, our thinking and actions give clients, our people and society the confidence to succeed responsibly in a rapidly changing world. We don’t just work with our clients to manage risk, we help them understand and grab the opportunities it presents too, helping them gain a competitive advantage. Our expertise and industry knowledge run deep here. At Deloitte, you’ll find yourself working with some of the most inspiring and experienced colleagues and with clients who trust you to lead the way to smart choices, better control frameworks, and new systems, including bespoke solutions that have a direct impact on their bottom line. 

Personal independence Regulation and controls are standard practice in our industry and Deloitte is no exception. These controls provide important legal protection for both you and the firm. We are subject to a number of audit regulations, one of which requires that certain colleagues abide by specific personal independence constraints. This can mean that you and your "Immediate Family Members" are not permitted to hold certain financial interests (shares, funds, bonds etc.) with audit clients of the firm. The recruitment team will provide further detail as you progress through the recruitment process.
