External Posting Description

Deloitte’s Value Creation Services (VCS) team offers its clients cross-functional advisory services when deadlines are often urgent. We help solve our client’s most complex business and performance challenges, whether they be in thriving or distressed business transformation situations, or the cut-and-thrust environment of M&A . . . or in most cases, all of the above!

The VCS team works in many industries but has a particular focus on Consumer, Industrials, Energy and Natural Resources, Cannabis and Financial Services.  You can read more about the industries supported here.

We focus on:

  • Enterprise Profitability (EP): Our EP Service identifies and implements opportunities that radically improve its client’s EBITDA and cash flow. The service helps clients with rapid revenue and market growth initiatives; cost reduction; working capital optimization; and business model transitions, transformations and modernization.
  • Pre-Deal Diligence (DD): Our DD Service offers Operational, IT, Commercial and HR due diligence to help clients drive informed bids, frame out risk factors, uncover value potential through synergy reviews, and get a head start on post-merger integration planning.
  • M&A Execution (MA): Our MA Service works with clients pre- and post-signing to design, plan and execute merger and acquisition transition programs.  Our work helps to maximize the deal value, minimize Day 1 disruption, accelerate and de-risk deal closing. This service also helps clients to determine their future state operating model by function and develop and implement the roadmap to close and beyond.


Your role as a senior manager at Deloitte:

•Inspire others to embrace and live our purpose and values

•Actively contribute to building the talent pipeline; create a talent experience that attracts, develops and retains top-talent and high-performing teams

•Establish a strong leadership brand and inspire followership through passion, integrity, and appreciation of others

  • Cultivate strong relationships with senior clients and help to drive a high degree of client satisfaction on engagements;


    Business Development


  • Work directly with the Partner group to identify and qualify new business opportunities, structure proposal responses and close the sale to help achieve overall VCS team revenue objectives;
  • Build and work internal and external professional networks to open new channels to serve our clients’ needs;


    People Development and Practice Management


  • Participate in the development and delivery of Deloitte’s training programs and services;
