Our Technology practice helps our clients solve complex business problems involving the strategy, procurement, design, delivery and assurance of technology solutions. We bring our experience and skills to bear in the most challenging and high profile technology projects. Our people are passionate about technology, whether they are developers with deep technical expertise, or more general technology practitioners with keen strategy, management and business acumen. The breadth of our offerings means we have high profile and exciting opportunities for all types of technology practitioner.

Our work focuses on four core themes relating to technology:

  • Transforming business processes with technology that provides competitive advantage; 
  • Achieving and running world class Information and Technology businesses and departments; 
  • Innovating and implementing emerging game-changing technology developments; and; 
  • Realising value through organisational change, whether regulatory, through merger & acquisition or other transaction-related activities.

Addressing these core themes draws on skills and capabilities across all of the Technology practice and ensures we sit at the heart of our clients’ business success.

What type of work do we do?

There are a lot of technology consulting firms out there; Deloitte is different. While we have unrivalled in-depth technical knowledge and experience in technology-enabled programmes, our approach is always to focus on the client and the client's industry, not just the technology. We concentrate on delivering the right outcomes through flexible and innovative approaches and an understanding of our clients’ business challenges.

We lead our field in the direction and management of large technology programmes. For example we help clients:

  • Define their IT Strategy;
  • Manage complex technology transformation programmes; 
  • Reduce the operating costs of their IT department and IT estate; 
  • Select outsourced IT suppliers;
  • Develop bespoke applications; and 
  • Transform their IT organisation into a world class team.

Within Technology, every project is different and there are always exciting and challenging opportunities available across a broad range of clients to obtain valuable experience as you progress your career.

Technology at Deloitte isn’t simply about using technology for technology’s sake; it’s all about how our clients use technology to achieve their desired business outcomes. Consequently, we require individuals with a passion and enthusiasm for technology with a desire to innovate to solve the unique challenges facing our clients.
