Programme Leadership (PL) is a dedicated team of high calibre project and programme management specialists. PL is currently one of the largest programme leadership Consulting capabilities in the marketplace and we are renowned for our critical involvement in our clients’ largest and most complex change programmes: We specialise in providing a full range of advisory, delivery and information services to clients who are planning or undertaking major transformations, delivering portfolios of projects or one-off mega investment programmes.

A role model and a recognised leader in our business

Within the UK alone, there are tens of billions of pounds of Private and Public Sector spend allocated to the successful delivery of major capital infrastructure projects and programmes, all of which are facing increased demands and pressures to deliver maximum returns on investment. Deloitte has a dedicated PL Capital Projects service area focused on being the client-side, trusted advisors of choice on large-scale investment programmes such as Crossrail and major infrastructure programmes within (although not limited to) the Oil and Gas, Transport, Utilities, Energy and Mining industries.

Deloitte also has a global network and presence and plans to capitalise on the emergence of large-scale infrastructure spend in emerging economic markets such as Africa, China, Russia and India.

We are Consulting

Three core competency areas make up our Consulting service line:

  • Technology
  • Strategy & Operations
  • Human Capital

We exist to solve complex problems

Our consultants are renowned for their straightforward approach to solving some of the world’s largest and most complex business challenges. With a team of over 3,000, each of us is energised by the challenge a seemingly inscrutable problem presents. Our distinctiveness lies in our refusal to accept a problem at face value - we draw on the depth of our shared insight to ask the right questions, and it’s these questions that uncover answers - answers with impact.

We are committed to collaboration

Our role is to unlock potential for growth and innovation. We believe this requires real collaboration ? with our own networks and with our clients. It’s why we commit to truly getting under the skin of our client’s needs, developing a full appreciation for their environment, goals and ambitions. We’re also unafraid to challenge. In so doing, we build long-term and trusted affinities.

We create long-term, sustainable impact

We often work hand-in-hand with our clients to help find the right solution and to help apply that solution. Our aim is to leave behind ambassadors who are equipped to continue the transformation we began. For us, it’s about embedding sustainable change, allowing the impact of our insight to be felt for a long time to come.

We offer a number of different career pathways

We offer three different career pathways at Deloitte, meaning that there are three different routes by which people can progress in Consulting. We provide variety regarding the career options available to you, assisting you to take career steps that fit your skills, talents and aspirations, and providing an environment where those choices can be discussed in meaningful and constructive career conversations.

The Consulting Career Paths are:

Consulting pathway ? pathway based around developing a broad consulting skillset alongside building expertise in a specific domain

Consulting Solutions pathway ? pathway where there is greater focus on building skills and deep expertise in a specific domain. Practitioners have a narrow focus, determined by their SME and type of contribution made

Consulting Services pathway ? pathway for people whose career is built around the delivery of managed services to clients (either internal or external)
