Senior Consultant/Manager, Sustainable Finance, EMEA Centre for Regulatory Strategy, Risk Advisory

Your Opportunity

We are the Deloitte EMEA Centre for Regulatory Strategy (ECRS).

We help the senior leadership teams at Deloitte’s clients to anticipate, understand and respond to how changes in financial services policy and regulation will affect their business strategies, operating models and legal entity structures.

Our team is based in the UK but we operate across the EMEA region, supported by a network of Deloitte practitioners. We also work closely with our Centres in the US and Asia Pacific.

We realise the value of our insights by strengthening Deloitte's capabilities, raising its profile in the market, and by deepening client relationships. We achieve this by:

  • Developing high-quality and client-relevant regulatory analyses (thought leadership);
  • Monitoring emerging policy and regulatory issues; 
  • Providing targeted support for client projects as subject-matter experts.

We are hiring a Senior Consultant or Manager (depending on the candidate’s experience) to join the ECRS Sustainable Finance team.  Working in the ECRS you will be given responsibility early on in your career, an unparalleled opportunity to develop strategic thinking, and gain a broad view of international, European and national financial services regulation.  You will work with colleagues to provide insight and advice to Deloitte practitioners and to a wide range of our clients on sustainable finance, including senior stakeholders.

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.

Your role

  • Working with colleagues in the ECRS to develop thought leadership on regulatory priorities related to sustainable finance, assisting with the analysis and assessment of the strategic implications of new and emerging regulatory requirements;
  • Helping the ECRS to maintain an overview of relevant developments in the UK and at EU and international levels for the sustainable finance portfolio, including through tracking new policy initiatives, identifying emerging topics and developing expertise in those topics;
  • Working closely and effectively with the ECRS senior management team and stakeholders throughout the UK and European network and beyond and developing relevant contacts with regulators, policymakers and industry;
  • Presenting the analysis and insights to clients;
  • Managing your time to deliver work to agreed deadlines;
  • Ensuring the quality of outputs; and
  • Contributing to cross-team initiatives.

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: You will be based at our London office, with the option of working from home flexibly.

Work patternPermanent, full/part-time.

Your service line: Risk Advisory

In Risk Advisory, our thinking and actions give clients, our people and society the confidence to grow 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.

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.
