As a member of this group, you will assist with providing strategic advice and guidance to clients on matters of risk mitigation related to internal controls, strategic transformations, project execution, and improvements to processes.

You will have the benefits of working with a large and supportive team and be able to thrive through the variety of our clients and projects. 

We’re seeking both technical and business/functional applicants.  

For technically-minded individuals, you will help our clients identify and mitigate IT-related risks and controls for system-enabled transformations and implementations, conduct analyses of core IT and information management processes to identify improvement opportunities and utilize leading-edge technology to continuously learn and deliver business insights to our clients. 

For those who identify as more business process professionals, you can expect to focus on helping our clients ensure they have designed and implemented appropriate strategic and operational risk and control practices.  Through your leadership, you’ll help our clients and your teams to better manage and understand strategic and operational risks by enhancing the effectiveness, quality, and value received from our clients’ governance, risk management, and internal control processes.


No matter how you identify, you will enjoy the support, collaboration, and direction from our fantastic leadership team in Deloitte’s Accounting & Controls practice.

Every day, we live our Purpose through the following five shared values:

  • Lead the way: Deloitte is not only leading the profession, but reinventing it for the future. We’re also committed to creating opportunity and leading the way to a more sustainable world.
  • Serve with integrity: Deloitte has earned the trust of employees, clients, regulators, and the public for 175 years. Upholding that trust is our single most important responsibility.
  • Take care of each other: We look out for one another and prioritize respect, fairness, development, and well-being.
  • Foster inclusion: We are at our best when we foster an inclusive culture and embrace diversity in all forms. We know this attracts top talent, enables innovation, and helps us deliver well-rounded client solutions.
