Your opportunity

This isn’t your typical admin role. Yes, you’ll need to be highly organised, have a sharp eye for detail and be able to work to tight deadlines. But you’ll be a key part of a large client engagement team so we’ll also rely on you to show initiative, be proactive and work independently to solve problems on your own. 

The Engagement Support Centre supports our Audit and Assurance teams. You’ll be working with our highly skilled practitioners, supporting them through the bid process and through the lifecycle of client projects.

Your role

Your role will be to deliver efficient, reliable and cost-effective working practices in support of our engagement teams. We foster a culture of continuous improvement so we will rely on you to develop best practice initiatives that will firmly benefit your stakeholders and the customer. You will have the opportunity to become a subject matter specialist and advance both your technical and soft skills through our structured training and development plans

Responsibilities

  • Supporting teams and managers with the delivery of project support, business development and practice management related administrative tasks
  • Support client take-on procedures and client file management
  • Organising billing, budget reviews and perform analysis of project finances
  • Assist in the completion of practice management related administration such as compliance monitoring
  • Production of reports, letters and documentation supporting the projects you are working on
  • Organising meetings, drafting agendas and minute taking
  • Working/work effectively in diverse teams within an inclusive team culture where people are recognised for their contribution

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: Central Cardiff

Suggested work pattern: Permanent full-time 

Your professional experience

We are looking for:

  • Flexible multi-taskers. This is a dynamic role and you’ll be working on multiple projects at the same time
  • Confident and professional communicators
  • Strong team players who take pride in their work and don’t shy from responsibility 
  • Evidence of your ability to work seamlessly and collaboratively with colleagues at all levels
  • Excellent knowledge of Microsoft Excel, Word and PowerPoint are a must

Our administrators come from a wide range of backgrounds, sometimes with little or no prior experience. What connects them is that they all put the customer at the heart of everything they do. Join us and you’ll be joining a growing team of proud, highly motivated people who are successfully helping to deliver the outstanding level of service our clients expect. 

Your service line 

Audit & Assurance

An imperative for all at Deloitte, innovation lives in Audit & Assurance as fully as in any other field. From process automation to reframing our team structure, we’re on a constant drive for positive transformation – for our clients and our people. With robots now taking care of routine tasks here, for example, you’re free to focus on what you do best: interpreting information, collaborating and communicating. You won’t be limited by sector experience either; we recognise that your skills and knowledge, wherever you gained them, can have a positive impact anywhere. You’ll work across industries, and with colleagues throughout the firm, to give clients the information and insights they need to make great decisions.

Being a Leader at Deloitte

Cultural fit and purpose-led leadership is crucial for Deloitte. Our leaders always set the example and inspire their colleagues. They make quality time for people and take an interest in them. They know what matters to people - both inside and outside work – and value them as individuals; always finding opportunities to develop them while showing respect and appreciation.
We expect colleagues at all levels to embrace and live our purpose and our leadership culture by challenging themselves to identify issues that are most important for our clients, our people, and for society and make an impact that matters. We know leadership comes in all shapes and sizes, but we require five leadership imperatives from all of our people:

  • We live our purpose: we act as a role model, embracing and living our purpose and values, and recognising others for the impact they make
  • We develop talent: we develop high-performing people and teams through challenging and meaningful opportunities
  • We drive performance: we deliver exceptional client service; maximise results and drive high performance from people while fostering collaboration across businesses and borders
  • We believe positive influence can make an impact that matters: we influence clients, teams, and individuals positively, leading by example and establishing confident relationships with increasingly senior people
  • We move, together, towards a strategic direction: we understand key objectives for clients and Deloitte, aligning people to objectives and setting priorities and direction
