Extended Enterprise helps to manage the risks associated with third parties as well as optimise IT costs and limit operational, financial, and legal risk related to software ownership. Our Extended Enterprise professionals help maximise the benefits gained from the relationships our clients have with various business partners including:

  • Suppliers
  • Customers
  • Franchisees
  • Licensees
  • Distributors
Our work is carried out by one of our two teams, our software team or our more general contract compliance team.

Our professionals within Extended Enterprise perform a huge variety of projects helping our clients with their third-party relationships. For example, supplier relationships constitute a significant proportion of the cost base of every organisation. We look for areas where our clients may not be receiving the intended value from the supply chain. Projects may involve analysing the entire process from supplier selection through to purchase and payment, identifying opportunities to deliver financial rewards and improve business operations.

We also conduct royalty inspections for some of the world's leading brands and industries such as media, pharmaceuticals, and luxury goods. Our team uses proven methods, including technical analysis, to verify the accuracy of reporting and identifies practices that may have an impact on our clients' brands. One key benefit that often arises is identification of additional revenue, leading to higher profitability. Another service we offer relates to the business value that may be contained within its intellectual property (IP), such as patents, trademarks, designs, or know-how. We help clients identify hidden IP within their organisations, consider their protection arrangements and opportunities to exploit these assets.

These are some examples of our common offerings, but in reality, the great thing about Extended Enterprise is the flexibility we can offer our clients when they need assistance with their business partner relationships. We respond to these situations to assist them, meaning we can tailor each project to the unique needs of our clients.

Your role

When you join Extended Enterprise, you will see how we work with some of the largest organisations in the world, across a variety of industries. Our client list includes eminent organisations in technology, mining, media, pharmaceuticals, oil and gas, public sector and charities.

The work you perform will help you develop an understanding of:

  • The different third party relationships an organisation may have across different industries;
  • The drivers which affect behaviours of business partners, suppliers and customers;
  • The operational processes and controls required by an organisation to effectively monitor its third party relationships; and
  • You will gain exposure to many aspects of the project from understanding the client environment and relationship with the supplier to performing detailed data analysis to understand the areas of supplier non-compliance.
Your work, your choice

At Deloitte we believe the best impact is the value we add, not the hours we sit at our desk. We carefully consider agile ways of working, both formal and informal, that allow for the best impact for our people and our clients. Please speak to your recruiter about the working pattern that works best for you.

Advisory engagements usually involve working as part of a small team (typically 2-5 people) to embed yourselves for a fixed period of time alongside a team of client stakeholders and work collaboratively to deliver positive, high value programmes of change / improvement for our clients to help them manage risk across their population of third party relationships. The key phases of an advisory engagement usually include benchmarking existing capability, designing, and developing an enhanced capability, building, or implementing that enhanced capability and supporting the client to adopt and embed the new way of working. Advisory engagements can range in duration from 6-8 weeks for the smaller programmes through to 12-24 months for the larger programmes.

The Extended Enterprise team value a healthy work-life balance and provide ample opportunity to socialise with other members of the team across grades. Social events are democratically selected and are well attended.
