SAP Implementation Consultant, Tax Management Consulting, Tax, Open to flexibility

Your opportunity

Deloitte’s Tax Management Consulting Team (TMC) has a market leading reputation in developing practical solutions. We are the largest of the Big 4 tax process and technology departments and demand for our services is growing rapidly. We have had great success in the market and this success is due to the quality of our people. Our TMC Technology Advisory team is distinctive as it sits within the core of our Tax Consulting business so our clients get an end to end global advisory service with a framework of technology. This means you will be joining a team that is front and centre with clients to get to the heart of the solution. A fun place to work with a real buzz; a forward thinking, innovative culture where colleagues are passionate about what they do.

A key part of the Consultant role is development, both in growing your own skills and experience, as well as being a mentor for junior staff within the team and the wider firm. You will be a team player and will enjoy sharing your SAP knowledge and expertise with others in our onshore and offshore teams, as well as continuing to build your own technical expertise or specialism.

You’ll get the opportunity to use and build on your previous experience implementing accounting systems, develop further Tax specific SAP experience and explore processes, reporting and data management.

You will also work collaboratively with the wider Tax Management Consulting team and more broadly within Deloitte. As a Consultant, you will utilise your commercial awareness and professional expertise, along with leveraging that of other teams in order to deliver the best possible outcomes for our clients.

Your role

In this position, you will work with our clients to design, implement or remediate the tax elements of SAP systems and advise clients on their SAP Implementation roadmaps specifically for Tax. You will be the key point of contact for day-to-day project issues, but supported by ERP leads and other SMEs in the wider functional team to deliver the best outcomes for our clients. With help from Associate Directors, Directors, and Partners, you will help our clients maximise the potential of their systems. You will be able to work independently on client sites and provide structure and direction to junior members of engagement team with a wide range of tax and non-tax stakeholder.

The position will require exceptional problem solving skills, and a solid functional knowledge of SAP and processes such as Order to Cash, Purchase to Pay, Asset to Retire and Record to Report. Play a critical client facing role that interprets and translates client requirements into a solution that benefits from exploitation of some of Deloitte’s predefined assets along with implementation and testing. Contribute to the development of response for proposals (RFPs) to client opportunities and support the management and leadership in developing innovative and client issue-led Go- to-market propositions.


  • Work on SAP implementations and help develop tax solutions. Contribute to the design, development, and implementation of the tax elements of SAP or other ERP vendors.
  • Prepare technical design, functional and technical requirement documents.
  • Participate in reviews of existing SAP systems and processes from a risk, controls and best practice perspective and suggest improvements.
  • Create unit test plans and scenarios for User Acceptance Testing (UAT) testing for Tax. Support functional team members on system and UAT testing.
  • Collaborate with internal Tax subject matter experts and client teams to understand and link business problems and tax-sensitive solutions relevant to the project or client engagement.

Your work, your choice

How long does impact take? How long is a piece of string? How many seconds does a solution contain? How can we possibly tell? After all, impact can be huge or small. Immediate or years in the making. At Deloitte we believe the best impact is the value we add, not the hours we sit at our desk.

We, therefore, carefully consider agile ways of working, both formal and informal, that allow for the best impact for our people and our clients. If the working pattern you are looking for is not specifically indicated below, we are happy to discuss alternative arrangements.

Location: London with occasional domestic and international travel

Suggested work pattern: Permanent full-time

Your professional experience

  • Functional experience in SAP ECC 6.0 or S/4HANA; and ability to understand and translate client requirements into SAP design and configuration
  • Prior experience working independently, occasionally fast paced, and in a deadline-orientated environment;
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Excel;
  • Ability to review and analyse areas of risk or process weakness, and provide potential solutions;
  • Ability to effectively communicate the implications of complex technical concepts to senior, non-technical audiences.
  • Interest in latest ERP technologies, third party tools and eagerness to build new tax skills.
