Our Government Solutions Team

Are you passionate about Digital Government? Would you like to make an impact by developing digital services for the UK Government, our NHS and the wider Public Sector? Better digital services will change the face of public services and have the potential to dramatically transform the future of millions of people here and abroad.

Our rapidly growing Government Solutions team has a simple goal: to be the leading agency for public bodies embracing the Digital by Default agenda. We cross the divide that most suppliers to Government cannot bridge. We build excellent solutions using agile methods and digital technologies which meet the Service Standard. We deliver our solutions in the complex, messy worlds of legacy technology and challenging organisations. And we work at Board level to address the cultural, governance, commercial and capability challenges that Government faces as it embraces digital.

You will be expected to hit the ground running, working in agile multi-disciplinary team environments, focused on the digital transformation of our clients’ services. You will have excellent analytical and problem solving skills and a proven track record in one or more areas of digital delivery. You will be comfortable challenging the status quo, delivering high quality services and building relationships with our clients and other stakeholders.

We are Consulting

Three core competency areas make up our Consulting service line:

  • Technology
  • Strategy & Operations
  • Human Capital

We exist to solve complex problems

Our consultants are renowned for their straightforward approach to solving some of the world’s largest and most complex business challenges. With a team of over 3,000, each of us is energised by the challenge a seemingly inscrutable problem presents. Our distinctiveness lies in our refusal to accept a problem at face value – we draw on the depth of our shared insight to ask the right questions, and it’s these questions that uncover answers – answers with impact.

We are committed to collaboration

Our role is to unlock potential for growth and innovation. We believe this requires real collaboration – with our own networks and with our clients. It’s why we commit to truly getting under the skin of our client’s needs, developing a full appreciation for their environment, goals and ambitions. We’re also unafraid to challenge. In so doing, we build long-term and trusted affinities.

We create long-term, sustainable impact

We often work hand-in-hand with our clients to help find the right solution and to help apply that solution. Our aim is to leave behind ambassadors who are equipped to continue the transformation we began. For us, it’s about embedding sustainable change, allowing the impact of our insight to be felt for a long time to come.

We offer a number of different career pathways

We offer three different career pathways at Deloitte, meaning that there are three different routes by which people can progress in Consulting. We provide variety regarding the career options available to you, assisting you to take career steps that fit your skills, talents and aspirations, and providing an environment where those choices can be discussed in meaningful and constructive career conversations.

The Consulting Career Paths are:

Consulting pathway – pathway based around developing a broad consulting skillset alongside building expertise in a specific domain

Consulting Solutions pathway – pathway where there is greater focus on building skills and deep expertise in a specific domain. Practitioners have a narrow focus, determined by their SME and type of contribution made

Consulting Services pathway – pathway for people whose career is built around the delivery of managed services to clients (either internal or external)
