Job Details

Your opportunity
Deloitte provide premium quality and testing services to a wide range of global clients, solving the most complex testing challenges on their most significant and highest profile IT change programmes.
Our team has grown rapidly over recent years, and continues to do so, combining a wealth of deep industry knowledge with both business advisory experience and technical expertise.
Our proposition differs from our competitors as we are not purely delivery focused, we pride ourselves on providing a more consultative and strategic approach to quality engineering which results in our clients experiencing a premium service and gaining higher value outcomes.
Business Operations
Want to work with the latest technologies, as part of a team helping international organisations transform their core business capabilities? Whether you're working with on-premise systems, Cloud technology, or custom-developed solutions (to name just a few), your expertise will help clients deliver continuous improvement and innovation, from initial design right through to implementation and optimization.
Your role
As part of this role you will be responsible for helping our SAP clients to identify and implement the most appropriate and efficient testing solutions for their needs, drawing upon our wide range of expertise and experience. You will get the opportunity to work with top tier clients, providing high quality test advisory and delivery services. This is an excellent opportunity to join a rapidly growing team that has a unique position in the test consultancy market.
Working with a range of global clients will also provide you with the opportunity to broaden your senior network with industry leaders across the SAP landscape, and in turn build on your existing leadership and client relationship skills.
As a leader of the Deloitte Quality & Test Engineering team, you will also play an important role in leading practice development activities such as developing quality accelerators to promote our testing capabilities and services to the external market. Likewise, you will be responsible for thought leadership; contributing to the management of our business; building SAP testing communities; and leading training and other talent initiatives.
Responsibilities will include:
• Collaborating with our SAP leadership teams, proposition owners and Quality & Test Engineering leads to develop and implement SAP Test propositions to attract new clients
• Contribute to Deloitte's thought leadership in Quality & Test Engineering
• Managing diverse teams within an inclusive team culture where people are recognised for their contribution
• Building long term trusted relationships with senior stakeholders
• Taking responsibility for budgets, client deliverables and billing
• Lead and support the development of client bids and presenting proposals
• Defining test strategies and approaches for large, complex or specialised SAP change programmes
• Managing client test delivery, demonstrating how testing activities meet quality, time and cost objectives
• Providing advice on testing toolsets and leveraging them effectively on programmes
• Reviewing test processes and practices and coaching the team on enhancement opportunities
• Own risks and issues around testing processes, tools and resources
• Act as a role model - help to develop and mentor junior resources
• To have a broader perspective of potential issues encountered when managing diverse teams and the strategies to overcome them; have a clear understanding of Deloitte's commitment to creating a more inclusive culture
Your work, your choice

We carefully consider agile ways of working, both formal and informal, that allow for the best impact for our people and our clients. Please speak to your recruiter about the working pattern that works best for you.
Your home office will be London, but this client-facing role provides lots of opportunity for travel in the UK and overseas.
Work pattern:

• Proven experience of working in complex client-facing environments and accountable for medium/large scale test delivery projects
• Strong leadership and management skills with managing onshore, nearshore or offshore test delivery teams
• Building and interacting with a network of accountable executives (C-Suite level), preferably being able to demonstrate strong client contacts/relationships
• Exceptional communication, presentation, business writing and professional skills, including being able to liaise with both technical and business contacts at clients

For us, collaboration is fundamental to success, along with an unrivalled depth and breadth of expertise. We work closely with our clients and each other, at every stage of every project, solving our clients' trickiest problems with a mix of knowledge, creativity and intellectual rigour. A hugely diverse range of clients rely on us to deliver the kind of change that adds genuine, lasting value to their business.

We are subject to a number of audit regulations, one of which requires that certain colleagues abide by specific personal independence constraints. This can mean that you and your "Immediate Family Members" are not permitted to hold certain financial interests (shares, funds, bonds etc.) with audit clients of the firm.
