Your opportunity

Value Creation Services (VCS) is a hands-on, delivery focused performance improvement team. We support Private Equity backed businesses and corporates who want to take an accelerated lens to performance improvement in delivering improvements to their cash & EBITDA position. Our team is pragmatic in its approach and helps businesses overcome challenges by supporting management (and owners, where appropriate) to drive sustainable operational change.

We encourage consideration of flexible ways of working, both formal and informal arrangements that allow for the best outcomes for our people and our clients. If this opportunity is of interest to you with some flexibility, please do discuss with us.

Are you looking to return to the workplace after an extended career break?

For this role we can offer coaching and support designed for returners to refresh your knowledge and skills, and help your transition back into the workplace after a career break of 2 years or more. If this is relevant for you, just let your recruiter know when you make your application.

Your role

This is an opportunity to leverage your performance improvement and turnaround experience in a stimulating new environment. Our VCS practice is experiencing rapid growth and we now have multiple opportunities across the team to recruit high calibre delivery individuals.
You will have the opportunity to work closely with our Private Equity and corporate clients in delivering performance improvement initiatives and turnarounds. Successful candidates will benefit from a demonstrable strong track record in delivering performance improvement initiatives, experience in navigating senior stakeholders and strong analytical skills, including Excel/PowerPoint capability.

You will be responsible for:

  • Assisting clients in assessing the value creation potential within their business, and developing action plans to deliver against performance improvement initiatives
  • Working hands-on with management teams to get buy-in across the business and implement agreed initiatives within an accelerated timeframe to maximise value
  • Working with colleagues from Financial Advisory, Consulting and the broader Deloitte network, the team provide our clients with a coherent overview of the business operations, performance gaps and the potential for rapid improvement
  • Work effectively in diverse teams within an inclusive team culture where people are recognised for their contribution

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:  Your home office will be London, but this client-facing role provides lots of opportunity for travel in the UK and overseas.

Work pattern:  This is a permanent, full time position. We can however consider a variety of agile working patterns. Tell us what arrangement works for you and we'll try to accommodate.

Your professional experience

  • Demonstrable track record of successfully delivering performance improvement programs or delivering an operational turnaround at an accelerated pace within a consultancy or corporate background;
  • Proven experience in the implementation of either cost reduction, cash and working capital or liquidity management initiatives;
  • Track record in business development, including generation of new leads and building out existing projects;
  • Experience with private equity portfolio companies is desirable;
  • Senior stakeholder and project management capability,
  • Experience in managing and developing talent;
  • Very strong analytical skills and experience in Excel and/or other BI tools (e.g Tableau, PowerBI etc…);
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills and;
  • Flexibility for international travel.

Your service line: Financial Advisory

Advising clients in the moments that define their business takes multiple layers of expertise. Much more than due-diligence, this is about diverse teams of specialists coming together, crossing service lines and international borders to tackle the many, complex issues involved in major transactions. And we have one of the broadest networks in the business. Here, you'll find fascinating, career-building projects, market leading approaches, cutting-edge resources, huge clients and inspirational colleagues. As well as opportunities to develop a deep industry or product specialism.

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.
