- Analytics and Information Management - Advisory
- Enterprise Applications
What is the nature and scope of the projects involved in the two areas? Are there any examples available?
Hi Daisy - lovely to meet you!
Hello Hannah, nice to meet you.
Unfortunately I can't offer too much information about EA as within Deloitte it sits within Technology Consulting.
Which in particularly are you interested in within Information Management?
I was reading the description and would like to ask further about the daily role and project involved
Ah, OK I see - so, within Information Management there are a number of different capabilities both technical and non-technical which may include projects around data classification and governance (identifying what data an organisation has, what type of data it is, where it sits etc. and what controls should be in place to protect it), Privacy - lost of work in this space, and then the implementation of some technologies which prevent data loss.
The information management projects are really hands on!
Thank you for your information and thus there be involvement in the compliance field on IP law or privacy law?
Hello Hannah. So if we do not have informatics or data background, would it be fine to join in the technology department?
Lots of opportunities to interact with clients and really understand how their business works
Will the job also involve in advising clients upon issues such as technology implementation?
Yes so we have a really well established Privacy team which is always expanding and looking for new people to join, especially with the GDPR regulation coming into force next year - lots of exciting opportunities in this space!
Wenjing - absolutely. I came from a Science background with no experience in data/technology and I sit with the information protection team, and love it.
Hannah, sorry to take back the conversation a little bit, the areas you have mentioned are all inclusive in the technology consultant role?
So Enterprise Applications within Deloitte sit within Technology Consulting, rather than Cyber
If I was to apply for technology consultant I will be looking into working in areas of Information management or EA etc?
We sit within Cyber so do not have a huge amount of detail for EA
Thanks for your answer. My background is sociology and English. I am not sure whether this will help?
But we can send you a link to more information on EA?
Information Management sits in Cyber?
There is a non-technical and Technical area of Information Management
Wenjing - No problem at all...many people here have come from a non technical/data background or have moved careers from something entirely different.
Hi Daisy, I thought I would jump in in response to your previous question on technology consulting. Our enterprise applications team sits within this practice and applications can be submitted via - www2.deloitte.com/uk/en/pages/careers/ar…
The grad scheme provides great training and chances to learn areas within Cyber
Thanks for that Hannah.
So the point is that as long as I have found the passion for cyber working, it will work?
Thank you Neil for your information
Yes - if you are passionate about Cyber and willing to learn then you will be great!
Hi Hannah, as I was reading the information provided on the website, the technology and cyber team is a separate team?
No problem at all Daisy, I know the enterprise applications vacancies are filling very quickly so I would urge you to apply as soon as you can if this is your preferred vacancy choice
Hello Neil, I want to further clarify with the career field
Cyber no longer sits within Technology Consulting, it sits within Risk Advisory instead
Hi Neil, as I was reading the website and it was showing various different areas within technology consultant and when we are to apply, we have to have the chosen area in mind under technology consultant?
Hannah, thank you for the clarification!
Hi Daisy, good question in terms of applying to technology consulting you initially submit this very broadly to the practice and it is only when you have successfully passed the online assessments you will then be able to select which specialist group you would like to pursue for instance enterprise applications
Thank you very much Neil for the clarification, it really helped me a lot on deciding which area to apply to!
Hello Hannah, sorry to jump in again and moving back to information management again. As you have mentioned before about the regulatory nature of the projects involved, will you considered the areas of information management to have a direction towards the IT/data compliance area?
Sorry Daisy - not sure I completely understand your question?
Sorry Hannah, to clarify, whether you would consider Information Management have a lot of involvement in dealing with IT compliance, from a legal prospective ?
Since the new data protection regulation will be enforced in just over a year, a lot of what we do and advisory work with clients will involve ensuring that they are complying with information protection requirements, ensuring compliance with these requirements sit across a lot of aspects of Information Management.
Thank you Hannah for the information. As I am currently a LLM student and I am very interesting in going into the technology compliance advisory area and the information management looks very appealing to me
Ah OK I see - so within Risk Advisory there will be many opportunities relating to technology compliance. You do not have to specialise straight away when you join so you have the opportunity to check out different areas and see which ones you prefer.
Thank you so much Hannah!!! that was exactly what I wanted to clarify!! Now I really have a more in depth understanding into the areas of my role choice!
Hello Neil, just a further question regarding competition, what is the level of competitiveness between risk advisory-cyber and technology consultant?
I wouldn't say one is more competitive than another, we essentially run a very consistent selection process with a set framework on the firms attributes. Essentially, if a candidate meets the requirements throughout the selection process there is no reason an offer will not be extended.
I hope that helps answer your question.
Thank you very much Neil!!! It really helped me a lot in deciding which area to go for!
Lovely to meet you Daisy - good luck!
Thank you Hannah and Neil, it was very nice speaking with you and thank you very much for the information provided! Thanks for the luck!
