You will understand our client’s industry and the issues they face, and provide them with relevant advice.

We make sure that the work you do, the support you get and experience you gain will leave you in no doubt as to how you want to take your career forward.

Our bright and contemporary open-plan offices make it easy to build collaborative and inspiring relationships between teams and different parts of the business. Our staff have diverse backgrounds and nationalities creating an exciting and inspiring culture where we celebrate and thrive on our differences. It’s another great strength that helps staff build the skills and knowledge they need to work effectively in a global business world.

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.

Your professional experience

To qualify for the role you must have:

  • ACA/ACCA qualification (or equivalent)
  • Previous experience of working with IFRS and / or UK GAAP reporting standards
  • Experience in auditing financial services clients
  • The ability to present client data in a clear and concise format
  • Ability to develop effective client relationships
  • Project management experience

Your service line: Audit & Assurance

In an industry best known for looking back, Deloitte looks beyond.

Our Audit & Assurance team understand the most important decisions are the ones we are yet to make. Crafting the future in an informed and clear-sighted way means understanding current conditions, as well as the trends that are shaping tomorrow. That is why we use our expertise in audit to show where things stand now, and to help inform the next step. With the assurance we provide, we help our clients to look ahead with strength and confidence across all of their accounting, regulatory and transaction needs.

Innovation is the key, underpinned by audit quality. You will be joining a diverse team of experts capable of delivering meaningful and durable change for both our clients and our profession.

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.
