Working Student Responsible Algorithms bij Deloitte



Do you want to help and encourage public institutions and other organisations to use algorithms responsibly? Join us at Deloitte.

What impact will you make?
Algorithms are an efficient and effective way to make substantiated and data driven decisions. With that, algorithms are now and in the future, crucial for a lot of organizations to operate. Algorithms (used for machine learning and other types of artificial intelligence) are – direct or indirect – used in many decisions made by public institutions and corporate organizations. Algorithms can for example be used to make automated decisions, predict specific behavior or make classifications using (personal) data. With that, algorithms impact society as a whole.
We are therefore convinced that these algorithms should be developed, assessed, used and maintained in a responsible and safe way. Using and maintaining algorithms in a responsible and safe way helps algorithms to be accurate, transparent, explainable and free of bias.
As Deloitte, it is our mission to help our clients to be responsible organizations. As a working student in the Responsible Algorithms team you can make a positive impact on our clients and society by developing methodologies and frameworks to use algorithms responsibly. We believe that the time is now to build the foundation for the responsible use of algorithms at our clients and society.
You will be part of the team that delivers these solutions to our clients. In addition to working on client projects, you also support in preparing proposals, client meetings, workshops and you will contribute to research and writing articles. We foster a collaborative culture where our talented colleagues can produce their best work and we value innovative thinking and diverse insights. We work closely with universities to jointly perform research and with other players in the responsible algorithm domain.
