Job Description

What impact will you make? The Opportunity

Data sits at the heart of every organisation and is relied upon for all aspects of operations, analysis, decision-making, reporting and planning. As part of the largest Risk Analytics practice in the UK, our practitioners understand exactly how data underpins a business and how improving the management and use of this data improves the performance of the business.

Supporting our core advisory services, and using a range of analytical tools and technologies to deal with data issues, we help reveal new opportunities to our clients through better use of their data. We work with leading blue chip clients to help them realise the value of their data. This ranges from generating reliable information (e.g. data quality, mastering, governance) to diagnostic analysis (e.g. reconciling financial data) and value added analysis (e.g. improving operational performance, cognitive analytics) in areas relating to front office, compliance, risk, internal audit, operations, finance and regulatory. In addition, we provide advisory services in the core capabilities of information management, management reporting and advanced analytics.

Risk Analytics is an integral part of Deloitte's advisory capabilities, and our OneDeloitte strategy enables individuals to work with our specialists in different areas across the business.
