Do you want to help some of the largest, most interesting organisations in the world imagine and deliver the future of risk analytics?


Companies face a period of unprecedented complexity, including regulatory change, business disruption, emerging technologies, and ever-increasing customer expectations. Deloitte is here to make an impact that matters by helping solve complex risk and regulatory issues for our globally strategic clients. Our work extends across the full lifecycle of financial services, to transform complex business requirements into practical, implementable solutions. By re-imagining the way organisations can quickly identify, evaluate, manage risk, and deliver on regulatory change, we create:
•    a more transparent, efficient, and compliant world that ultimately ensures customers get fair outcomes
•    opportunities for our clients to take risks, so that they can grow and transform in a responsible way


In response to the growing demand for our team’s Risk Analytics services, we are looking to hire data scientists to join our national team, delivering market leading advice and practical data solutions that make a material impact to our clients, our people and society.  We are looking for Data Scientists and Managers with 4-8 years’ experience either in industry or with professional services firms, both globally and here in Australia.


We don’t just work with our clients to manage the downside of risk through leading data analytics solutions - we help them understand and seize the opportunities it presents too, helping them accelerate their growth or gain a competitive advantage.


If you’re an ideas person, problem solver and a hands-on doer, who loves to collaborate, you’ll thrive here.


We invest in our people, so you will have access to leading training and development opportunities, allowing you to develop both personally and professionally.


Some of the work we do includes:
•    Design, build, assess and document bespoke data solutions and models to solve complex regulatory, conduct and compliance problems using advanced analytical tools and techniques  
•    Transform the ways clients leverage people, technology, data, business processes and controls, to better manage risks and optimise processes
•    Support the delivery of a portfolio of projects across a range of industries focusing on providing our clients with evidence-based actionable insights to reduce risk and improve compliance 
•    Working both autonomously, and closely with colleagues, Directors and Partners to bring the best of our global network and thought leadership to clients, manage large change and business remediation programs, and respond to the requirements of key regulatory bodies
•    Taking ownership for the delivery of data analysis activities within a stream of work, across programs/projects to deliver project goals
•    Devise and deploy effective communication strategies and supporting materials

About the team
People working across a wide range of industries and the public sector, our team advise, implement, and deliver analytics to support decision-making. Our team is an inclusive, dynamic, and growing team committed to driving innovation, delivering client outcomes, and making an impact that matters.

Enough about us, let’s talk about you.
You are someone with:
•    Artificial Intelligence, Statistics, Data Science, Applied Mathematics or Computer Science related degree OR prior experience in conduct analytics within remediation or regulatory and compliance analytics at financial institutions, and/or previous consulting experience
