Explore our teams

We apply strategy, innovation and venture thinking, circular economy and product lifecycle design expertise, workforce, asset, and operations excellence with emerging technologies across the digital and physical worlds to help clients realise sustainable, resilient, and inclusive futures.

We do this as part of three teams that work together to leave a lasting impact that matters.

Sustainability & Climate

In an ever-changing world, businesses are being asked to identify and manage their environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks – from supply chain transparency to decarbonisation. But with these risks comes the unique and extraordinary opportunity to shape a more vibrant economy.

Drawing from deep experience and cutting-edge capabilities, our Sustainability and Climate Consulting team helps Senior Executives, CEOs and clients understand, engage with and act on their ESG-related risks and opportunities so they can thrive in a low-emissions, resilient and inclusive economy.  

We provide the following services for clients:

  • Sustainable Customer, Product and Service Innovation: We work with clients to develop innovation strategies; design, build and commercialise new solutions and ventures; and build organisational capabilities needed in the climate transition.
  • Climate-led Operations Transformation and Supply Chains: We help organisations to reduce environmental waste, carbon emissions and inefficiencies as part of core operations and throughout supply chains, in parallel with improving productivity and reducing costs.
  • Digital Climate Solutions: Using digital technologies, we help organisations design and deliver products – for both their customers and operations - that help create a more sustainable economy and environment.
  • Sustainable and Climate-driven Workplace and Workforce Transformation: We help clients define their future workforce to align business priorities with the evolution of work, workers and the workplace, and transform to support new business models and digital capability.
  • Emissions Solutions: Technology advisory services and a suite of circular economy and emissions-negative solutions to help clients reach net zero.
  • Indigenous Services Group: Our people work with clients and communities to solve complex problems by understanding their values, purpose and aspirations. And we help unlock new possibilities by reimagining a nation, economy and value chains that centre on First Nations wisdom, knowledge and opportunities.
  • Social Impact Consulting: Supporting social sector organisations and government agencies to deliver greater social impact aligned to their vision and mission.

 Asset Management & Performance

We help asset-intensive businesses harness ingenious solutions to get so much more for less.

Our Asset Management & Performance Consulting team helps organisations redesign their operating models, deliver capital and transformation programs, and implement cross-industry best practices with a clear mission: to make your assets more productive, more profitable and more capable of empowering a successful business.

We provide the following services for clients:

  • Operations Transformation for Asset-Intensive Industries: We deliver transformation strategies and change roadmaps that reimagine operations, deliver sustainable operational and process efficiencies, and help capital go further in asset-intensive industries.
  • Digital Asset Information: We help clients optimise their fixed and mobile asset investments through digital standards and governance processes that allow them to rapidly move into the world of Digital Asset Management.

 Industrial Redesign & Innovation

Our Industrial Redesign and Innovation team is dedicated to helping the built environment change with it – to be more sustainable and economically resilient.
We focus on full-stack transformation across existing and emerging industries through world-class advisory, design consulting, technology implementation and product lifecycle management. It’s these capabilities that have seen entire value chains transform across industries like defence, transport, manufacturing and energy.

We provide the following services to clients:

  • Industry Strategy and Ecosystems: Our Industry Strategy and Ecosystems team shapes the strategic direction of evolving and emerging industries. We support organisations and their ecosystems to understand and respond to prevailing global challenges, creating outcomes that will leave the world in a better place than we found it.
  • Value Chain Transformation: With offerings such as Illuminate, we build resilience through digital intelligence that provides visibility of your supply chains, improving transparency across multiple tiers. We help you leverage big data analytics and augmented intelligence to generate comprehensive supplier network maps, identifying opportunities and risk exposures, and turning them into actionable, industry-specific insights.
  • Digital Twins and Simulation: We help clients reimagine their ecosystems by converting the physical to digital with our digital twin, simulation, and machine learning technologies. Through Optimal Reality, we build better understandings– of now and of the future – so clients can control and action change in real-time, with tangible results.
  • Product Strategy and Lifecycle Management: We create smart, safe and sustainable products along the digital thread so you can manage, simulate and improve assets, from business needs through to disposal.

Meet Alastar

Meet Alastar McMahon, Senior Consultant in our Industrial Redesign & Innovation team!

Hi Alastar, why did you want to join Deloitte?

I've been at Deloitte since completing my Strategy & Operations team internship in early 2017. My first four years were with Monitor Deloitte, developing and executing strategies for major consumer products clients.

I recently joined Industrial Redesign & Innovation to pursue my passion for sustainability and growing Australia's nascent circular economy. Now, I'm working alongside some of Australia's, and the world's, largest clients to deliver programs that respond to global warming and that institute real, tangible change for society and our environment.

What project opportunities have you been most excited about since joining the team?

For me, playing a key role in the growth of Australia's container deposit schemes has driven nationwide litter reduction and promoted the development of domestic recycling capability.

Is there anything you would like to share about working at Deloitte that surprises you or that people wouldn't expect?

Flexibility – Deloitte is fundamentally committed to creating an environment that accommodates individuals to work in a manner that best suits them (i.e. when, where, and how you want to work).

Diversity & Inclusion – we like to think of ourselves as pioneers in supporting initiatives that drive better outcomes for D&I in the workplace and wider community, such as through gender pay equality, parental leave, and many others.

And lastly… If you could go back in time, what tip would you give to your younger self about building your career?

We are looking for diversity of thought and opinion – don't worry about who you're up against for a role, the important thing is to value your own skills and experience.

Meet Audrey

Meet Audrey Gan, Senior Manager in our Industrial Redesign & Innovation team!

Hi Audrey, tell us, what prompted you to join Deloitte?

During COVID, most of the world was in a state of lockdown and uncertainty, including myself. During this time, I started contemplating wider societal issues – and thinking hard about what problems I'd enjoy solving during my 9-5 day job.

Right after COP26, I was determined to pivot to helping solve Climate and Sustainability issues, knowing that if I managed to do that, I would find true career fulfillment. At that juncture, Deloitte and I found one another. It was made known during my interview that Deloitte also had a real interest in solving these same gnarly problems for their clients. It was hard to say no, and the rest is history.  

What is something that's surprised you about working here, something you think people mightn't expect?

In Australia alone, Deloitte Consulting employs more than 5,000 consultants.

The depth and breadth of our expertise in our local firm continues to surprise me. Backgrounds I have seen so far span from your typical engineers, bankers and lawyers, to public servants, artists, farmers, musicians, agribusiness experts, and the list goes on. Not many workplaces can boast that amount of diversity and capability in my experience.

Tell us about an exciting development opportunity you've recently participated in...

I've recently participated in the Asia Pacific Academy, a 7-week intensive course that culminates in a Pitch Competition. Our challenge was to develop a digital solution for Governments and Public Service to help drive increased, sustainable behavioural change from citizens.

I worked with colleagues from Japan, Taiwan, China, Singapore, and Australia to develop an MVP that seeks to address this problem. It was enlightening to hear from our Global Experts across the firm on the innovative Climate and Sustainability work we have done and continue to do, and how Deloitte plans to take that to the next frontier as we lead into the decade of climate action.

And lastly… If you could go back in time, what tip would you give to your younger self about building your career?

One of my favourite motivational quotes is this: "Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid".

This quote constantly reminds me that everyone has their own unique strengths and expertise, and it's OK to not be the master of every single skill set. As you build a career and work in a team, especially in the Consulting industry, you will come to realise that the best work is done when people put their best strengths forward. That's when the real magic begins.

Meet Angus

Meet Angus Lau, Graduate in our Sustainability & Climate (Social Impact) team!

Hi Angus, tell us a little about yourself and what you do each day!

I am a light-hearted and easy-going individual who wants to make a real difference through the work I do. Here on the Deloitte Social Impact team, we specialise in supporting clients to navigate an increasingly complex sector and to maximise the holistic impact they have on people and communities. 

My role as a graduate is to actively engage with and learn from the awesome team and clients I work with to find ways in which I can add value. What I do on a day-to-day basis and love about my role is that I can be doing anything from helping shape an organisation's overall strategic direction to attending a Deloitte consulting festival!

What interested you to join Deloitte?

It can be an incredibly overwhelming and daunting experience trying to decide what career path you want to pursue. Deloitte turned out to be the perfect place for me because the people here truly care about helping you navigate and chart your own career path. Whether it's through an incredible coaching and support network or the infinite opportunities the Pathways Program can open for you, Deloitte will provide you with the tools needed to discover your passion.

What are some things about working here that has surprised you, or you think people wouldn't expect?

A common misconception before joining was that Deloitte only hires those outstanding overachievers who shaped their personalities around Leonardo Di Caprio in the Wolf of Wall Street. From the outside, it seemed like everyone who worked at Deloitte had an unattainable specific set of skills and experience.

I soon discovered that this was as far from the truth as possible. There isn't a set formula for success-- everyone you meet here is as different and unique as you. Deloitte showed me the power of diversity, especially by making a constant effort to make everyone's voice heard. This range of perspectives makes Deloitte such an interesting place to work.

When thinking about your career at Deloitte, what are you most looking forward to?

Big cliché, but I am most looking forward to working with the amazing people around me. The depth of experience and innovative thinking that makes up Deloitte means there is always something new to learn from working with somebody on the team. Tackling complex problems with these remarkable people is something that motivates me to get out of bed every day.

And lastly… If you could go back in time, what tip would you give to your younger self about building your career?

Don't get caught up in the frenzy of trying to be the applicant with the longest resume! It's easy to fall into the spiral of mindless competitiveness with the person next to you to secure the job you've always wanted. Recruiters are looking for people who can think on their feet and bring a unique perspective to the table. The way you do this isn't by being the best candidate on paper. It's by constantly putting yourself out of your comfort zone and being curious about the things that interest you.

Meet Priscilla

Meet Priscilla Tan, Principal in our Asset Management & Performance team!

Hi Priscilla, tell us a little about your background, what you work on and why Deloitte!

I am a Principal in our Asset Management & Performance team with over 20 years of business consulting experience.
I work closely with clients in the Energy & Resources sector to improve operational productivity and navigate/ transition through complex organisational change.

I'm originally from Singapore and wanted a change in scenery, working environment and lifestyle – so I relocated to Perth and joined Deloitte in 2008!

What do you think makes Deloitte a great, rewarding, and inspiring place to work?

At the very core of Deloitte's culture is the belief that we exist to make a positive impact for our people, our clients and our community. How inspirational is that? This belief connects with my values and is my anchor at Deloitte. It inspires me to move forward with boldness, empathy and a sense of purpose.

I am passionate about coaching and supporting our people throughout their life at Deloitte. I would like them to experience the many positive interactions I have had in my 14 years with the firm. I look forward to providing many others the platform and opportunity to elevate, amplify and make a difference (big or small).

Tell us about an exciting learning and development opportunity you've recently participated in…

I have been fortunate to be part of a number of leadership programs at Deloitte (Deloitte Business Woman of the Year, Shaping your Leadership Potential, Deloitte Partner Program, Mentoring). Each of these programs was pivotal in helping me develop a better sense of who I am as an individual, the impact I could be making with clients and the people around me and, more importantly, shaping the type of leader I could and want to be.

And lastly… If you could go back in time, what tip would you give to your younger self about building your career?

Have aspirations and dreams, stay curious - never stop learning, be kind to yourself and most importantly, surround yourself with leaders and teams that inspire you to be better.
