Your opportunity

Our people are our most important asset. Through an increasing use of blended learning solutions we are seeking to deliver a ground-breaking, agile solution that delivers outstanding results and exceeds their expectations.

Our mission is simple. We want our people to be the best they can possibly be. Equipping our colleagues with the latest skills to solve our clients’ most complex issues is the thread that brings us all together. By delivering an innovative and agile world class learning portfolio that’s accessible to all, we will nurture and build new capabilities for our talented people. That’s where you step in. What impact will you make?

Your role

Be successful in this role and you will ensure the smooth running of the Strategy and Management function. You’ll be responsible for liaising with teams across the operation to collate information, report on key activities, and confidently manage multiple stakeholder’s expectations. Using business analysis you’ll identify underlying issues, patterns and relationships and make data driven recommendations to maximise results. It’s a close knit team and your Business Manager will rely on you for support. We’ll need you to be organised, efficient and proactive to help drive agendas and key projects forward to a positive outcome.

  • Strong stakeholder management skills: able to adapt and work with senior managers and their teams across the structure.
  • Able to liaise with work streams (TOM, Curriculum, Digital) and senior managers to collate and report on risks, issues, actions in relevant formats and into relevant stakeholders (including for example the HR Operations’ team)

  • Work closely with the Central Services team to link strategic KPIs to operational MI and build reporting tools which align the teams’ work without duplication. Happy to work across the function and liaise with SSO where appropriate to gain MI and reports for Strategy & Management purposes.
  • Secretary to the Learning Leadership meeting, collating actions and driving the agenda.
  • Supporting the Business Manager by feeding into the Change Acceptance Board, highlighting risks and issues and contributing to mitigation plans by function - detailing activity, timeline, risk and mitigation.
  • Confident to escalate issues and risks in a timely manner. Brings a solution-based mind-set, prepared to think around problems to find solutions.

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. This is a permanent full time role with opportunities for some working from home.
