Deloitte, Technology - Banking and Securities - Analytics and Information Management (AIM) - Manager, Senior Manager or Director), London

Role description

Who we are

Analytics & Information Management (AIM) is an exciting and thriving area of Deloitte's Technology Consulting practice, recognised as a key growth platform by senior management and pioneering innovative new business models. Our practitioners work across the UK as well as in major financial centres around the globe on challenging and stimulating engagements with leading global clients across strategy, advisory and implementation.

With achieving BCBS 239 compliance high on agenda of our clients, we have exciting plans to grow our business, and are looking to strengthen our practice with high quality, motivated and enthusiastic recruits, keen to maintain and enhance Deloitte's reputation as a pre-eminent management consulting firm.

Who we work with

Deloitte's Banking & Securities (B&S) team works with some of the largest UK and international Financial Services organisations, including:

  • Retail Banks
  • Investment Banks
  • Exchanges and utilities
  • Financial regulators

As these organisations grapple with what it really means to be BCBS 239 compliant, deal with increasingly demanding requests from their auditors and regulators and seek to derive business benefit from the efforts that have been poured into achieving compliance to date, we are seeing increased demand for help in the BCBS 239 domain.

What we do

The Banking & Securities team within AIM helps our clients to achieve their most important business goals through the better management and exploitation of their data. We work closely with colleagues from across Deloitte who are experts in Risk and Regulation. By bringing together this unique combination of technical, risk and regulatory expertise we can deliver outcomes to clients that no other organisation can achieve. Our BCBS engagements with clients can take different shapes and sizes – architecture design and implementation, implementation reviews, roadmap development, delivery management.

What we are looking for

As a Manager, you may play a lead data architect or project manager role, depending on your skills and experience. In either role, you will be leading a team of people and be expected to ensure the quality of delivery. When not chargeable to clients, you will play a hands-on role in delivering responses to RfPs and pulling together materials to support sales discussions with clients.

As a Senior Manager you will be expected to lead and develop a team of junior resources as well as being heavily involved in the management of the sales process. In this transitional role, the focus of attention shifts from delivery to management and sales; you will take ownership of engagements and resources and hone your commercial skills.

As a Director, not only will you lead teams and client engagement projects, you will also play a key role or own elements of the internal and market-facing growth of AIM, including the development of new and sell-on sales opportunities by promoting Deloitte propositions, capabilities and maintaining on-going client relationships, leading bids and growing our people.

Broaden your expertise, boost your marketability

Responsibilities

What we expect

Taking a lead on AIM project work, focussing on BCBS 239, you will be continually encouraged to devise innovative solutions, to help our clients maximise the benefit and value they achieve from their data assets through compliance with this demanding regulation. You will also assume real ownership of projects and key stakeholders at executive levels, as you help them shape and execute their data strategy around BCBS 239. Both Senior Managers and Directors will also manage a number of our sales activities. You will assume real ownership of projects and key stakeholders at CxO level, as you help them define and execute their Analytics strategy. We are vendor neutral and therefore have maximum capability to provide our clients with objective advice.

You will benefit from accelerating your skills in the sales process, as you develop your capability in managing budgets, forecasting, and contributing to bid and proposal work. Our environment is entrepreneurial, meritocratic, and team-focused.

The role involves managing the delivery of key transformation projects focusing on:

  • Designing, developing and reviewing technology solutions to assist with BCBS 239 compliance, as well as some work on non-technology aspects
  • Providing BCBS technology expertise into wider programmes around Risk or Data Quality
  • Managing key client stakeholders' relationships and leading teams of Deloitte and client personnel
  • Taking responsibility for budgets, commercial negotiations and client deliverables
  • Leading the development of client bids and presentations of proposals
