Your opportunity
Technology is an exciting and thriving area of our consulting practice.

We have a diverse practice of over 1800 practitioners working across the UK on challenging engagements across a wide portfolio of clients. Our breadth and depth of technical capabilities enable us to be both trusted advisors and implementation partners.

We are a global leader in Cloud Computing and we are growing our team working on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure solutions, helping clients by delivering solutions from hybrid on-premise right through to wholly Cloud based. We are looking for Cloud Engineers with a passion for one or more of:
  • Platform Implementation on Cloud
  • Bespoke Solution Implementation on Cloud
  • Cloud Migration
  • Cloud Integration including hybrid on-premise/Cloud
  • DevSecOps
  • Cyber Risk Transformation
Are you looking to return to the workplace after an extended career break?
For this role we can offer coaching and support designed for returners to refresh your knowledge and skills, and help your transition back into the workplace after a career break of 2 years or more. If this is relevant for you, just let your recruiter know when you make your application.

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
Reporting to the Delivery Lead / Project Manager, the Cloud Engineer is focused on working with and leading colleagues in the implementation of Cloud based solutions. This can involve both advisory and delivery roles and any of architecting; building; securing; or monitoring; platforms and solutions in the Cloud.

You will collaborate with teams to get our solutions deployed into the Cloud securely. This could involve creating containerised or Cloud development environments through to working with our testing colleagues to analyse the security of a live customer facing system.

This role is an opportunity to stretch your skills in the latest technologies as well as understanding the business imperative for our Cloud solutions.

Your role will have multiple responsibilities depending on the project type. In one project, you might build an application optimised for the cloud, using automation to test and deploy the application into production. In another project, you might convert a manual runbook or provisioning processes and automate them using tools such as Ansible or Terraform. From an operations perspective, you will be required to set up monitoring and alerting for AWS workloads so we can support our clients' needs on an on-going basis.
  • You have a passion for technology
  • You will understand what it takes to deliver and support high quality solutions that align to the needs of our clients
  • You will develop scripts to automate the deployment of AWS/Azure architecture and solutions
  • You will be responsible for securing clients' systems and protecting their data using best of breed tooling such as Splunk and DataDog
  • You will capture and share best-practice knowledge within Deloitte cloud teams
  • You will be a problems solver and will troubleshoot and improve existing DevOps processes as well as provide support and advice for development teams
  • You will be a self-starter and will actively recommend improvements to applications to increase resilience and performance
  • You will be curious and want to develop your knowledge of all the current and future technologies we leverage
Your work, your choice
How long does impact take? How long is a piece of string? How many seconds does a solution contain? How can we possibly tell? After all, impact can be huge or small. Immediate or years in the making. At Deloitte we believe the best impact is the value we add, not the hours we sit at our desk.

We, therefore, carefully consider agile ways of working, both formal and informal, that allow for the best impact for our people and our clients. If the working pattern you are looking for is not specifically indicated below, we are happy to discuss alternative arrangements.

You will be based in a Deloitte London office, however travel will be required for client based projects. Whilst some clients are London based, we do spend time on site with regional and international clients. We specify full mobility for our consulting roles but we make arrangements respectfully, there may be some opportunity for working from home depending on client demands.

Work pattern:
This is a permanent opportunity. The role can be worked on a full-time basis.
