Work you'll do:

Deloitte is expanding its insurance audit and advisory business in response to the regulatory and MFRS/IFRS accounting changes impacting the insurance sector.

Due to the publication of MFRS/IFRS 17 Insurance contracts in 2017, many of the clients across the insurance industry are asking for support from us as they assess, design and implement this fundamental change in accounting and look to address the impacts to their business model and financial reporting. This gives us opportunities for our insurance practitioners to assist our clients in areas such as reporting process and controls design and implementation, operating model, and finance transformation, working closely with actuarial, consulting and risk advisory colleagues.

We are looking to expand our team of focused, aspirational and collaborative insurance practitioners, and as such we are offering the opportunity to join as Manager or Assistant Manager in our Insurance Audit and Assurance Group to support this challenging and rapidly expanding business. We are seeking applications from professionals who ideally have excellent knowledge and experience of Life and / or General insurance related audit and advisory engagements. This role will require some level of business travel depending on client needs in the ASEAN and Asia Pacific region.
