Deloitte Digital has hired 64 new graduates, a significant increase on the 38 hired last year, and bringing the size of the business from 540 a year ago to over 700 people today – making it one of the largest creative and digital consultancies in Australia.
Deloitte Digital lead partner, Steve Hallam, said: “We have some of the hottest creative and digital talent in the country working at Deloitte Digital, including the number one ranked Art Director in the world and some of the most creatively awarded professionals in Australia over the last 10 years.
“It’s fantastic to see so much talent, young and experienced, wanting to join us. I like to think it’s because we offer so much more than a typical creative agency. Fundamentally we are a team that imagine, deliver and run things in a digital world that’s only becoming more connected. We are helping our clients become digital businesses. The challenge and opportunity is to integrate multiple technology platforms in a way that provides the customer with a personalised and consistently creative experience across all channels.
“Our combination of creativity, technology and business knowledge is pivotal in creating lasting business impact that helps our clients succeed, and it’s also what makes us such an attractive employer for creative people passionate about changing the world.”
The new graduates are joining teams of experts across Deloitte Digital’s business in customer strategy, conceptual creativity, emerging technology, spatial and retail design as well as UX, UI and business design.
In addition to the new graduate intake, strong growth in the past 12 months has also come from the creative, brand and media team in Deloitte Digital, established in late 2017 by Adrian Mills, David Phillips and Matt Lawson. That team is now well over 50 people, and has attracted top tier creative talent, including creative directors Gustavo Vampre and Charles Baylis.
Adrian Mills added: “We’re colliding the discipline of Deloitte with the power of creativity to build the market’s leading Digital Creative Consultancy. This requires a diverse cohort excited by the opportunity to create the work that only Deloitte can create. At this rate of growth, we’re definitely going to need a bigger office.”
