Return to Work Programme - September 2017, Open to flexibility 

The Opportunity  

Our Return to Work programme is open to anyone who’s taken a voluntary career break of two year or more. It’s designed to refresh your knowledge and skills, and boost your workplace confidence. Whatever you’ve been up to, we know it will have enriched who you are and what you can offer our clients and business. This is about giving you the time and support you need to readapt and get your career back on track.  

The programme aims to encourage women back into the workplace, but is open to all. Over the course of the programme, you’ll benefit from group induction sessions, mentoring and project experience, and the chance to work within one of our service lines.  At the end of the programme you may have the opportunity to convert to a permanent role at Deloitte.    

Role description  

This is your opportunity to join our Audit practice as part of the Return to Work Programme.  

Our Audit business has recently undergone an exciting transformation and is made up of four distinct business streams: FTSE, International, Financial Services and Private Markets. Each providing market leading, client specific audit and advisory services to our clients.

For the programme, we currently have multiple roles available within our FTSE, International Markets and Private Markets teams.

FTSE - our Corporate FTSE group is focused on UK businesses registered on the London Stock Exchange and includes the most recognised and highest profile clients in the UK. It brings together both our largest and most influential clients and our most ambitious and high growth listed clients. You will have the opportunity to work with some our most recognised, highest profile clients in the UK.  

International - our International Markets group portfolio of clients include some the largest and most successful businesses that Deloitte work with in the UK. They are complex, influential and exciting. This work is for those who respond to the intellectual challenge of understanding a clients’ business and key controls. As you progress, there will be opportunities for foreign travel and overseas secondments to key geographic global markets of the Americas, APAC and EMEA.

Private Markets – Our clients range from Private Equity owned businesses and the UK’s largest privately owned businesses to high growth, dynamic entrepreneurial companies. The Private Markets business is a multi-million audit and advisory market and we have already demonstrated great success, and high growth, over the past 2 years. Opportunities exist to do a mix of audit and non-audit work, and closeness to the business owner, will allow you to develop into a ‘trusted advisor’.
