Role description

Every company, big or small, uses some of form of system to manage their employee data. Smaller companies may use a simple Excel spreadsheet or perhaps even a piece of paper, but larger organisations will require more sophisticated systems. These systems cover everything from recruitment, basic employee data processing, performance management and payroll.

Deloitte can add value by partnering with our clients to enhance their HR function. We do this through technology, allowing our clients to do these tasks quickly, efficiently and in a controlled environment. In recent years, this has been pushed to the forefront of our client’s minds and we have seen a rapid increase in demand for our expertise in the design and implementation of their HR Application solutions.
