Manager, Financial Services (Insurance)

Connect to your Industry

Are you energised by the opportunity to tackle some of the world’s biggest and most complex social, environmental and economic challenges?

Do you get excited about working with a diverse and global team of experts and experienced professionals?

Are you passionate about leading organisations through transformation to deliver value and sustainable benefits to their customers, clients and staff?

If so, Deloitte’s Major Programmes practice could be the place for you!

Deloitte’s Major Programmes practice (part of the wider Human Capital offering) is currently recruiting for individuals with industry and technical skills that can strengthen our capability to address complex programme challenges and create conditions for success for the world’s most impactful programmes.

Major Programmes typically involve the delivery of a major capital asset or infrastructure through large, complex programmes that require significant investments and span multiple years. Historically, most Programmes of this scale and impact fail to deliver value, on time and on budget.

Over the last 50 years, the world has changed significantly, but the approach to tackling these increasingly cross-cutting, capital intensive and technologically complex programmes has not evolved at the same pace. Our clients look to us and our deep and broad programme delivery expertise to lead them through complex transformations and implement new and effective ways to deliver major programmes.

Our market leading next generation delivery approach, Programme Aerodynamics, replaces siloed, conventional, linear thinking with multi-disciplinary capability to help our clients deliver their most critical and demanding programmes while reinforcing Deloitte’s commitment to purpose-led change. Programme Aerodynamics is a fundamentally new approach bringing together mindsets, expertise, methodologies, and solutions from Strategy, Programme, Digital, Programme Leadership and Human Centred Transformation to better anticipate, shape and manage change in Major Programmes. It empowers project leaders to effectively anticipate and manage change, risk and uncertainty across a programme’s lifecycle, shaping its success.

Our practice comprises a blend of those who have worked previously in industry (in both technical and non-technical roles) and those who have prior consulting experience. The strength and value Major Programmes bring to our clients and Deloitte is a result of our collectively diverse and highly relevant industry insights and experience; the complexity of challenges our clients face requires us to leverage this diverse range of skillsets and experiences.

You will have the opportunity to work across a range of impactful programmes, building your skills and experience on the job, as well as supported by our world class professional development approach. You will also experience the breadth of what Deloitte offers, working with colleagues across a range of disciplines in a dynamic and collaborative environment and drawing on our market leading methods, and our global assets and tools.

Personal independence

Regulation and controls are standard practice in our industry and Deloitte is no exception. These controls provide important legal protection for both you and the firm. We are subject to a number of audit regulations, one of which requires that certain colleagues abide by specific personal independence constraints (e.g., in relation to any financial interests and employment relationships). This can mean that you and your "Immediate Family Members" are not permitted to hold certain financial interests (shares, funds, bonds etc.) with audit clients of the firm, and also prohibitions on certain employment relationships (e.g., you are not permitted to hold a secondary employment role with SEC audit clients of the firm whilst being employed by the firm). The recruitment team will provide further detail as you progress through the recruitment process or you can contact the Independence team upon request.
