About Africa Talent

Africa Talent by Deloitte (Africa Talent) is a separate legal entity based in South Africa and was formed between Deloitte Africa and Deloitte Netherlands in order to meet the growing demand for Talent in Africa and Europe; and to establish a competency centre that can compete with other delivery centres in India and beyond. While incorporated in South Africa, the goal is to recruit and develop Talent throughout Sub Saharan Africa in order to service the diverse needs to enable projects at our clients. Talent employed, will have the full experience of Deloitte, while getting both local and international exposure to a diverse set of clients, working remotely from Africa.  It will take advantage of the demographic reality of Africa as a future source of talent for both Africa and Europe and at its core is the goal to create employment in Africa and invest in African talent.

The ethos of our organisation is characterised by vision, purpose beyond profit and an appetite to innovate and deliver creative, high impact solutions to urgent client challenges.

Every day, your work will make an impact that matters, while you thrive in a dynamic culture of inclusion, collaboration, and high performance. As the undisputed leader in professional services, Deloitte – Africa Talent - is where you will find unrivalled opportunities to succeed and realize your full potential.

This new team is a true encapsulation of hybrid work whereby you gain access and exposure to learn from and engage with colleagues in South Africa and the Netherlands, while working virtually from your local Deloitte office, or from home.

What impact will you make?

As Senior Consultant your passion lies in improving business processes, systems and related controls in an ever changing IT landscape. Through analysis, implementation, advice and audits you support our clients in  achieving a reliable, secure and responsible IT environment.

ERP systems are at the heart of the digital environment that supports the operational and financial business of our clients. ERP systems typically support the majority of key business processes, resulting in a complex IT landscape that is of increasing importance to the financial statement and statuary audit. In addition, outsourcing functions to a third party introduces certain risks for service organizations. It is critical that service organizations communicate information about their risk management and internal controls to their third parties.

In your role as participating team lead you are the voice of the client. As Senior Consultant you are expected to give the client a heads-up for possible problems and then act as a sounding board to find solutions. At the same time you will service and expand your personal network. As Senior Consultant in the IT Risk space you will come in contact with various clients: we work for stock market listed clients as well as mid-size clients,  start-ups, and public organizations.
