Are you excited about accelerating the transition to a circular economy and helping organisations unlock commercial, social, and environmental opportunities?

About the Opportunity


You will be joining a team of passionate and innovative people to create and implement solutions that meet our clients’ toughest challenges across the circular economy – a market that is undergoing unprecedented disruption, across a variety of industries.

  • Be part of expanding a dynamic, fast growing, top tier management consulting practice
  • Work alongside a high performing team with a strong commitment to excellence in helping our clients transition to, and apply, circular business models
  • Access to flexible working arrangements and world-class learning programs

About The Team

Deloitte Consulting’s Industrial Redesign & Innovation (IR&I) practice evolved from a recognition that climate change and deglobalisation present the biggest shifts to the global order. We assist Senior Executives and Boards of leading corporations and government agencies to develop and execute strategies that respond to these challenges, while sustainably growing their organisation.

Our Circular Economy team is an integral part of IR&I, comprising a group of strategic problem solvers focused on helping our clients disrupt the value chains and ecosystems in which they participate. What sets us apart is our ability to design creative and pragmatic solutions, and our commitment to accelerate innovation-led transformation for our clients. We fundamentally believe that circular business models are a key enabler of achieving sustainability for all organisations – one that can drive competitive advantage and create lasting value.


What will your typical day look like?

In this role, you will engage directly with high profile public and private sector clients to solve their most pressing strategic and operational value chain issues.

Your day-to-day responsibilities will include:

  • Be trusted to plan and deliver streams of work largely independently, including defining client problems, co-designing solutions and presenting to senior client stakeholders
  • Undertaking detailed research and analysis to validate hypotheses, and synthesise insights into client deliverables
  • Applying project management skills to coordinate highly effective teams, while guiding junior colleagues and building strong client relationships
  • Supporting business development opportunities, including preparing client proposals, scoping up client engagements and contributing to thought leadership


Enough About Us, Let’s Talk About You.

In response to client demand, we have roles for Senior Consultants and Consultants within our Circular Economy team. We are seeking individuals who want to have an impact on future generations and encourage anyone with circular economy, strategy & operations, climate, or sustainability advisory experience across public or private sector industries to apply.


You are a highly motivated individual with:

  • Relevant experience in a consulting firm, boutique strategy house, ESG advisory and / or internal business improvement role
  • Formal certification, advisory experience or industry exposure in circular economy, operational excellence, sustainability and / or climate change
  • Experience in the use of structured problem-solving approaches and frameworks
  • Advanced analytical, commercial and communication skills, preferably developed in an advisory or industry setting
  • Track record of working collaboratively with teams to solve complex business problems
  • Curiosity to learn and passion to develop others as well
