Commercial Deal Shaper in the Pursuit Centre of Excellence

Developing commercial arrangements for our largest and most strategic sales opportunities.

At Deloitte.

What impact will you make?

An exciting opportunity to develop commercial arrangements for Deloitte Consulting’s largest and most complex deals, with our most important clients. Working with the client service team and the PCoE team (including a pursuit coach, lead, writer, and designer), you will help win business and enhance margin through smart pricing, commercial solutions, and negotiation expertise. You will be engaged in a diverse range of commercial challenges; from bids, enhancing profitability on key accounts and framework rate card negotiations, through to advising on commercial propositions for new services and being the commercial “knowledgebase” for the Consulting business.

Deloitte has established a clear vision to become the undisputed leader in professional services.  The Pursuit Centre of Excellence (PCoE) strategy is a key enabler of this vision; aiming to build enviable client loyalty with the largest and most influential clients, in our chosen markets, such that these clients will turn first to Deloitte when faced with a major challenge.

The Commercial Deal Shaper will help win deals and improve profitability through compelling pricing and commercial propositions for our clients. This individual will provide expert advice on all commercial aspects of the firm’s client proposals, with a primary focus on higher value, more complex deals, and the firm’s most important clients.

A major part of your role is to respond to our clients’ requirements and challenges by providing commercial solutions that our clients value. As a Director, you will work closely with the Partners and Directors for our major accounts to shape commercials arrangements both for individual engagements and when negotiating rate cards and commercial incentives at a client account level. The Commercial Deal Shaper will also be responsible for gathering information regarding the competitiveness of the Deloitte offering and understanding the latest trends in our competitor’s approaches.

The Commercial Deal Shaper is a part of the PCoE. The PCoE supports the Consulting business on the highest priority deals, providing a tailored bid support service, with commercial support being a key aspect of service provided. Many of our larger deals and framework negotiations also involve working with Deloitte member firms in other countries on complex, multi-year negotiations with global clients, providing a diverse geographical aspect to the role.

The team operates across all industries, with a focus on building relationships, knowledge and insights regarding the different commercial environment each industry presents. The team also provides advice and support on the pricing and commercials for new products, services or solutions developed by Deloitte.

This is how

  • developing the pricing and commercial propositions for bids and proposals, to demonstrate greatest value to clients, enhance margin and win more deals;
  • directly negotiating the more complex and challenging commercial arrangements with our clients for both account level framework arrangements and specific bids and opportunities;
  • helping account teams to design and implement commercial strategies to enhance profitability and grow revenues for Deloitte’s most important clients;
  • providing expert insight on how to best engage with client procurement teams and procurement processes;
  • supporting the development of commercial expertise across the firm through knowledge sharing, guidance and best practice deployed by the team;
  • keeping abreast of industry pricing and commercial trends;
  • providing new ideas on value adding commercial activities for Deloitte;
  • liaising with the wider Global Commercial Community across the firm;
  • contributing to a high performing team and bringing ideas to shape how the Commercial team plays its part in driving business success.
