At Deloitte, Human Resources is transforming. We are already an award-winning HR team but we’re not resting there. We want to make an impact that matters for our people, our clients and for society. To achieve this, we are going beyond ‘HR’s seat at the table’ to firmly embed HR into the business, advising and innovating along with our business leaders.

  • HR Business Partners
    Our HR Business Partners support each of the main businesses in Deloitte. They are the essential two-way link between the business and HR’s strategies.

    The new model will reposition the team on the journey to delivering greater impact by firmly embedding HR in the business as ‘trusted council’. Robust relationship management will enable the team to partner with business leaders, influencing and developing talent strategies that give Deloitte their commercial edge.

This group ensures we manage our business with integrity. This includes developing and managing assurance and business risk frameworks, anti-money laundering, addressing any potential conflicts of interest amongst clients and maintaining our independence from them, ensuring we’re compliant with regulations such as the FSA and PCAOB, and managing the security of our people.

Teams within National Quality and Risk Management

  • Anti Money Laundering
    It’s important that we only do business with clients of good character, integrity and reputation, who are involved in legitimate business activities and whose wealth and funds are derived from legitimate sources. That means we need to obtain reasonable information, adequately documented and corroborated, about the identity, background, business and sources of wealth and funds of all our clients. We’re always alert to any suspicious activity.
  • Assurance
    There are many other stakeholders, both internal and external, that need assurance on the management of risk and other aspects of the firm’s business – including DTT, regulators, service line risk teams and auditors of our Quality Management, Environmental Management and Information Security ISO accreditations. The Assurance practice develops and maintains the assurance framework.

    The Assurance Group carries out internal audit and monitoring projects across all aspects of the firm’s business based on a programme agreed with the Audit Committee. Projects are determined on a risk-based and thematic approach.
  • Conflicts
    Conflicts may arise between the interests of two clients, between the interest of the company and the client or in obtaining a benefit from a third party in relation to the client. That’s why Compliance operates a system whereby conflicts of interest can be identified and advice offered as to how such conflicts should be addressed.
  • FSA Compliance
    To ensure the FSA's requirements are met, our FSA Compliance professionals provide support and guidance, identifying the impact of the FSA's rules. They also help to ensure that effective procedures, systems and controls are in place.
  • Independence
    A key area for compliance, our Independence team helps to maintain both actual and perceived independence from our clients. Independence may be affected, for example, by the services we offer to our clients or the personal interests of the firm's partners and staff.
  • Information & Security
    Protecting the security of our people and ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of confidential information is an essential task for all of us.
  • National Risk Management
    The essence of effective risk management is about assessing the quality of our clients, establishing in advance what we are to be responsible for and to whom, and then ensuring that we fulfil those responsibilities while remaining alert to the challenges of the rapidly changing environment that is our marketplace.
  • PCAOB Compliance
    Under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, non-US public accounting firms that audit or play a substantial role in the audit of US issuers are subject to oversight by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (the ‘PCAOB’). As auditor to clients who have a listing in the US, Deloitte LLP is registered with, and hence regulated by, the PCAOB. Public accounting firms are subject to a strict reporting framework and the information required can be far reaching – relating to our company, its associated entities, and potentially all partners, staff and contractors.

Our job is to make sure all of our people (and visiting clients) work in accessible, flexible and inspiring spaces. Working in partnership with our colleagues in facilities and front of house, we look after all our office buildings, along with most of the services provided within them. The opportunities in Real Estate are vast, and continue to grow as we respond to the changing world of work.

Property breaks down into four main areas: legal and surveying, hard facilities services, soft services, and procurement.

The front-of-house teams are the first point of contact for people entering company premises, while our back-office functions cover everything from facilities management to filing and resourcing.
