Deloitte: The company

Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited is a global organisation of firms that provide professional services in different areas of expertise, including accounting, financial advisory, audit, tax, enterprise risk, consulting, and other professional services. Dedicated to keeping up standards of excellence, Deloitte is one of the remaining Big Four auditor firms and one of the world's biggest advisory companies. Founded in 1845 by William Welch Deloitte in London as an accountancy office, Deloitte has since grown into a global brand, employing about 170,000 people in more than 150 countries worldwide. In 1989, Deloitte (then known as Deloitte Haskins & Sells) merged with Touche Ross to form Deloitte & Touche. In 1995, Deloitte & Touche leaders established the Deloitee & Touche Consulting Group, now known simply as Deloitte Consulting.

Deloitte Consulting LLP has clients in almost 150 countries worldwide. Ranked third biggest consulting firm in the world, Deloitte cooperates with select partners in order to always deliver top of the line strategies and solutions in IT, strategy and finance management to clients and to maximize shareholder value.

Careers at Deloitte

In October 2007, Deloitte reported a record financial performance globally, with all the firms in all the regions scoring double-digit growth. Consulting services alone chalked a 16.5 percent growth. This prompted Deloitte CEO James H. Quigley to announce plans to increase the number of employees in all the firms by 50,000 over the next four years, citing recruitment as the key to maintaining the company's steady growth. Deloitte Consulting recruits new employees and interns in 140 countries across the globe on a regular basis, inviting IT consulting experts and other professionals, students and graduates who are seeking work experience and employment to explore job and internship openings and career opportunities at their convenience.

Deloitte firmly believes that collaboration and collegiality give their business a competitive advantage. The company rolled out its collaborative platform, D Street, in 2007, making it easier for consultants to network with their more experienced colleagues. Deloitte consultants also have iConnect at their disposal, an expertise discovery device which helps them find experts on any given issue across the company’s professional network.
