Make an impact with Deloitte as you influence the outcome of government and private sector-led infrastructure and service delivery projects.


What will your typical day look like?


Expect to be grown and challenged as you help Australian governments, organisations, not-for-profits create value and improve the way they work they deliver services to their customers and our community. From growing our cities, exploring autonomous vehicle deployment, supporting the response to Queensland’s housing shortage or enabling better educational outcomes through future-focussed classrooms, we work with our clients to solve complex problems and provide them with solutions to some of the toughest challenges facing our community today.


Your work could cover the whole of a project’s lifecycle to inform major decisions and implement complex projects, from policy development and business cases, through to procurement, implementation and delivery.


You might find yourself:

  • Collaborating with Government to shape policy reforms required to drive forward digitisation and decarbonisation agendas
  • Analysing an infrastructure network’s performance and future requirements using the latest tools and technologies, such as ‘digital twins’ or enabling machine learning to identify opportunities and risks
  • Working with a team, including architects, engineers, lawyers and stakeholders across government to prepare compelling business cases to support key investment decisions. This involves consideration of the social, economic and environmental impact of different options to determine an optimal outcome
  • Helping government departments determine operating and revenue models for delivery of services
  • Undertaking commercial and financial analysis, designing commercial frameworks such as performance and payment arrangements, and developing and delivering procurement strategies to optimise competitive processes.


You will also be provided the opportunity to develop our people, help to grow our relationships with existing and new clients and increase our capability and market reach.
