Connect to your opportunity

As a Senior Strategy Consultant you will be delivering strategy work for our clients day-to-day. While no two projects are the same, you will typically be leading a workstream within a larger engagement, managing a small number of analysts or consultants, with oversight and support from a Strategy Manager or senior colleagues as needed. You’ll play a vital hands-on role in designing and executing the strategic analysis required, conducting research and assembling evidence, distilling insights and constructing strategic recommendations.

At times the role will include working with our customer research and proposition design teams. Alongside strong strategy skills, we particularly welcome applications from candidates with experience in marketing, customer strategy or life and pensions proposition design.

The nature of the work we do includes:

  • Strategic options analysis and evaluation: working with clients to understand and define strategic choices ahead of key investment decisions
  • Market analysis: traditional evidence-led analysis to identify market development opportunities to support client strategies
  • Developing strategic business models: determining the optimum business or commercial model to effectively deliver client objectives
  • Capability building: helping our clients configure effectively and develop their ability to deliver operational excellence in specific areas
  • Stimulating innovation: identifying new ways of working that will stimulate innovation and growth, and lead to better decision-making
  • Digital transformation: guiding and supporting clients through imagining, defining and delivering their digital journey to enable competitive advantage

The team: The role sits within the Life and Pensions practice, part of Deloitte's Insurance Strategy Consulting team. You will join and learn from a group of experienced Senior Strategy Consultants and Managers with expertise across customer and adviser strategy, wealth management, financial planning and taking new products to market. You’ll also benefit from being part of the wider Insurance Strategy community. Beyond the Strategy team, you will build a network with Pensions and Life experts across Deloitte, in digital, marketing, M&A and operations consulting lines.

Development: We offer a structured career path and invest in continuous development and learning, which matter greatly to us. Our growth in recent years has been strong and we have ambitious plans for the future: you will find that there is no lack of opportunity for you to develop your career, wherever you may choose to take it.

As a Senior Strategy Consultant your responsibilities will include:

  • Analysis and insight: executing rigorous and insightful analysis to build an evidence base to support strategy development and change
  • Tools, skills and frameworks: mastery of strategy tools and frameworks to solve client problems, and sharing best practice within the team
  • Leadership: independently leading a workstream or small project
  • Team management: managing and mentoring junior colleagues to ensure successful project delivery Relationship management: working closely with clients and internal stakeholders, developing strong professional relationships and liaising across Deloitte to deliver a seamless client experience
  • Continuous Learning: proactively developing your own skills, seeking feedback, building knowledge, and sharing your insight with colleagues
  • Business development: Supporting development of the Insurance Strategy community and team, and supporting business development with clients
