Your opportunity
Want to work with business leaders, and alongside some of the most creative thinkers in industry?
Can you develop and deliver innovative and core technology solutions that transform the digital enterprise and maximise ROI? From strategy articulation and process design to technology enablement, we work together to simplify the complex; creating tangible value for our clients.

Do you want to work with a market leading team shaping and delivering complex large scale M&A Integration and Separation programmes for a range of multinational clients? Deloitte's IT M&A practice combines our experience as global leaders in Transaction Advisory Services (ALM), Business Transformation (Forrester) and M&A Consulting (Kennedy), with our unmatched system implementation and delivery capabilities in areas such as CRM, Digital Customer Implementation, Data & Analytics, SAPS S/4HANA (Gartner) and Cloud (IDC Market Share).
