When you work for us, you commit to a career at one of the largest and most prestigious professional services firms in the world. Looking for a rewarding career?

It has received numerous awards in the last few years which include Best Employer in the Middle East, best consulting firm, and the Middle East Training & Development Excellence Award by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW).
As a professional services firm, Deloitte must at all times be fully complying with the Code of Professional Conduct for Registered Auditors, the Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants of IFAC (International Federation of Accountants), and the legal requirements of stock exchanges around the world, all as amended from time to time. This requires a multidisciplinary firm like Deloitte to maintain, and to be seen to maintain, its independence as auditors when rendering non-audit services to, and forming business relationships with, audit clients
In the context of the codes referenced above, various legislation as well as local and international Regulatory Bodies, Deloitte is at times precluded from rendering certain non-assurance services to, or forming business relationships with, companies that are subsidiaries of, or affiliates of, any company that is classified as Restricted or with whom we may have a business or professional conflict.
