Work You’ll Do:
The Senior Consultant will work as a team member in executing corporate strategy projects focused on transforming what the firm offers, how we deliver those offerings, and how we operate. Projects could include any of Deloitte’s four specific functional businesses: Audit, Tax, Consulting, or Advisory, or may be focused on new services and businesses, channels (e.g., clients, industry sectors, geographies) or services that cross functional business lines.
The Senior Consultant will interact with senior leaders in the company and will assist in various special, top priority projects with potential to significantly impact our organization.
The Senior Consultant will develop thinking and execute on one or more innovation projects or work-streams. This includes activities such as:

The US Innovation group supports Deloitte’s strategic innovation goals. The group focuses on sensing emerging trends; incubating breakthrough technologies and solutions; driving and orchestrating the firm’s digital transformation; and communicating to our people and the marketplace the vision and impact of the firm’s innovation and digital transformation efforts. The group also works with firm leaders to help set, shape, achieve – and then refresh - innovation goals.
The US Innovation group is unique in Deloitte. Its focus is to rapidly identify, shape, experiment and incubate new business opportunities that leverage leading edge technologies.
