Given recent and proposed legislative changes, demand for our services is growing rapidly. This role brings together expertise in compliance associated technology solutions and tax accounting.
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.

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.
- 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.
- Participate in reviews of existing ERP systems and processes from a risk, controls and best practice perspective and suggest improvements.

- Prepare technical design, functional and technical requirement documents.
- Create unit test plans and scenarios for User Acceptance Testing (UAT) testing.
- Support functional team members on system and UAT testing.
- In some cases, involvement in the evaluation and integration of third party software solutions that drive tax determination and compliance and compliment the ERP system.
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.

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 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
