What's in it for you?

Deloitte was one of the first 50 companies to sign up to the Armed Forces Covenant, an agreement which highlights the moral obligation owed to the Armed Forces by the Government, businesses and the nation. 

We recognise the value that serving personnel, reservists, veterans and military families bring to our business. As a sign of our support and commitment, we have established the Deloitte Military Transition and Talent Programme (DMTTP), which offers all the support you need to transition from military life into a civilian career.

We will seek to uphold the principles of the Armed Forces Covenant, by:

  • Promoting the fact that we are an armed forces-friendly organization
  • Using the DMTTP and our internal Military network group to support transition coaching and mentoring for military leavers 
  • Aiming to support the employment of veterans and their spouses through Insight days, one to one advice and work placements
  • Endeavoring to offer a degree of flexibility in granting leave for Service spouses and partners before, during and after a partner’s deployment, including compassionate leave as necessary
  • Seeking to support our employees who choose to be members of the Reserve Forces, by accommodating their training and deployment where possible
  • Encouraging support of military charities with fundraising, advice and support
  • Leveraging support of ex -military personnel by using their consultancy skills, unique leadership experiences and public speaking expertise
  • Supporting the MOD by taking part in conversations about Reservist Recruitment strategy and roll out; and actively championing the benefits of employing former and current military personnel.

Veterans Work

In 2012, Deloitte Partner Chris Recchia set up the ‘Veterans Work’ initiative. This looks beyond rigid hiring criteria and recognise the value that Service leavers can bring to business. We partner with two UK-based charitable organisations, the Forces in Mind Trust and Officers Association on this initiative.

Supporting Military Spouses

We know from our own experiences that military spouses subjugate their career & support network to follow their partners who are serving in the British Army, Royal Navy and the Royal Air Force. Recruit for Spouses is not just about finding a job, it’s about spouses reestablishing their identity and independence – building a fulfilling life that benefits them, their partners and their families. In the past eight years we have helped over 5200 military spouses and partners with CV support, coaching and job applications.

Recruitment Opportunities

We’re actively looking for skilled individuals to help lead Deloitte into the future. So please Join our UK Military Talent Community  to receive career resources, potential job opportunities that may suit you and insights into life at Deloitte. Our recruiters may also contact you when they have an interesting opportunity that may be a fit for you.

Return to Work - Frequently asked questions

If you have relevant professional experience that matches the role you are applying for, and are now looking to transition back into the workplace after an extended career break of two years or more, one of our Return to Work supported hiring opportunities could be right for you. Roles available will be at a range of grades, from Assistant Manager through to Director.

Once you’ve found a role you’d like to apply for, you’ll need to supply your CV as part of your application. Please include details of your extended career break (including relevant dates) and we can see what extra dimension your time away has added.

The expectation is that returners will have had a break of two years or more.

No. We look for relevant skills and experience for each advertised role. We do not apply age criteria when reviewing candidates’ suitability for the role.

To maximise your chance of success, we recommend you apply for the role that corresponds most closely with your previous experience, skills and career aspirations.

If you don’t find a role appropriate for your skills and experience, or in your chosen location, you can still register an interest in our Return to Work supported hiring opportunities here. We can then get in touch with you should any suitable opportunities arise. Please do also keep an eye on our website as new roles will be released throughout the year.

Deloitte’s Return to Work Retraining Programme is focused on retraining returners (who are returning from an extended career break of two years or more) to develop new skills. Returners will have no previous coding or software development experience and will develop these skills through the programme.

Deloitte’s Return to Work Supported hiring opportunities are open to returners with previous experience and existing skills in the relevant role for which they are applying.

It's standard practice to screen our new joiners before they come on board. You'll be contacted by Security Watchdog, a leading provider of pre-employment screening. They’ll ask you to complete an online questionnaire, upload your right to work and proof of residency, and complete a declaration of consent.

Regulation and controls are standard practice in our industry and Deloitte is no exception. These controls provide important legal protection for both you and the firm. We are subject to a number of audit regulations, one of which requires that all Partners and audit professional staff abide by specific personal independence constraints. This prevents you and your "Immediate Family Members" from holding certain financial interests (shares, funds, bonds etc.) with any audit clients of the firm.

You must ensure you are compliant with these independence requirements (and if necessary provide evidence of your compliance) as you will need to be cleared by the Personal Independence Team before you can join the firm.

If you have any questions regarding this, please speak to your recruiter.

Of course. If you require any workplace adjustments to be made because of a disability or health condition, before joining we will introduce you to somebody in HR who can help arrange these for you.

Your interview will cover experience you’ve gained outside the working environment, focus on your transferable skills, and include scenario or task-based questions. You won’t be expected to provide specific examples of recent experience.

We want you to perform at your best, we don’t want to knock your confidence by presenting questions and situations you simply won’t be able to answer. So we’ve designed our assessment process to reflect the fact that applicants have had a career break.

We also encourage hiring managers to focus their time with ‘returner candidates’ on learning about what they can do: their strengths and qualities.

That’s because we want more people to consider Deloitte following a career break; and we think how we assess you is a big part of that.

If your application is successful, we’ll be in touch to let you know the next steps.

Our Return to Work supported hiring opportunities are open to anyone, male or female, who has taken an extended career break of typically two years or more. This can include time out for travelling, focusing on family, or just time out to refocus and re-energise.

After a prolonged period out of the work environment, we understand that you’ll need to bring your knowledge and skills up to date. To help bridge that gap, you’ll have the opportunity to create a professional development plan, where we work with you to identify skills you need to refresh, from the suite of training we offer. We also provide induction training to familiarise you with Deloitte; structured learning, so you’re able to use our everyday tools and software; and technical training to better equip you for client service delivery projects. You’ll also be assigned a Buddy to help you settle in and a coach to support your development.

We carefully consider agile ways of working, both formal and informal, that allow for the best impact for our people and our clients. Return to Work roles are usually offered at four days a week (80% presence). If the working pattern you’re looking for is not specifically indicated in the job advert, we are happy to discuss alternative arrangements.

Some roles may require you to travel. If that’s the case, it will be clear from the specific job advert and you can discuss it further with your recruiter or at interview.

From the minute you join, we will support you in your transition back to work. You’ll have access to a returner network, and support from a Buddy, line manager (for your day-to-day work), coach and your sponsoring partner.

You’ll also benefit from coaching sessions, run by external providers, who facilitate our award-winning Working Parents Transition Programme. And we have a number of firm-wide diversity networks, who come together regularly and help connect people.

Based on four years of successfully running a returner programme, we’ve developed bespoke resources to help you refresh your skills in those important early weeks.

Yes all Return to Work roles are generally permanent unless the job description specifies that the role is for a fixed-term contract.

Please see the job advertisement for details about agile working options for your specific role. We’ll also ask you about your agile working requirements at the early screening stage, as we're happy to discuss alternative arrangements if the advertised options are not quite right for you. The Deloitte ethos is that any agile working arrangement needs to work for both the individual and the business – thus, we will be happy to discuss options with you.

  • Coach and a buddy
  • Access to the Returner Network for additional support and advice
  • Four Coaching sessions to support with the transition
  • Additional bespoke IT training support to refresh your skills
  • Access to additional Performance and Development tools

We have moved away from a programmatic approach that had a set annual intake date. Instead, as with all of our experienced hire opportunities, we have start dates throughout the year, meaning we’re ready for your return when you are. Post receiving an offer you will be informed of the upcoming start dates and you will be asked to select the start date most appropriate for you, there are typically two start dates per month.
