On Wednesday we were tipped to several people at the manager+ level in transaction services getting laid off from Deloitte, all of whom were working remotely. And then this reply the artist formerly known as Twitter mentions layoffs in audit:
We talked all the time in grad school (approx 6 years ago) that there was no way the (then) current model would be sustainable… I think it’s finally starting to crumble. Deloitte just announced more audit layoffs.

There’s been no official announcement but there’s this. We’ll assume Mr. D is consulting chair Dan Helfrich and not someone’s actual uncle but who knows with Reddit.
The number getting thrown around is 3%.
The last official layoff announcement was in April when Deloitte announced the culling of around 1200 people (1.5% of the workforce). Those layoffs were concentrated primarily in financial advisory.
If you know more on this you know what to do.
