Careers in Assurance: creating confidence for the business community worldwide

As the global financial crisis confirmed, there is clear connectivity between the world’s economies. Our Assurance services give the kind of confidence to investors that is important for trust and informed decision-making. Timely and relevant financial information is, in fact, vital to the health of the world economy.

This means everyone has a vested interest in understanding factors such as risks, investments and values in relation to all economic matters – from individual retirement plans to the financial stability of regions like the Eurozone.

It also makes for a seriously stimulating working environment, where you’ll work across a wide variety of industries with equally varied clients at a high level.

This area is very broad, giving you the opportunity to develop a general grounding in business and opening the door to many career paths. You can become an assurance professional or move into other areas of the business.

It is your gateway to a wide range of opportunities, and enables you to gain a number of different qualifications.

Where you can focus

When you first start, you’ll develop a variiety of Assurance skills across many areas – covering both audit and non-audit work. You can then call on this experience when it becomes time to narrow your focus.

You might work in the following areas of Assurance:

You can provide peace of mind to our clients by using your analytical skills to give companies, investors and regulators confidence in the validity of financial statements, business-critical information or processes.

Your main focus will be to provide independent verification of our clients’ compliance with accounting principles. By doing so, you play an important role in helping businesses accurately reflect their financial picture and, in turn, protecting financial markets.

Climate Change and Sustainability

EY - Climate Change and Sustainability

Our Climate Change and Sustainability Services team is grounded in our core skills in Assurance, Tax, Transactions and Advisory.

2. Fraud Investigations and Disputes

Organizations need to respond effectively to the risk of fraud, comply with ever-increasing regulation, and take the right approach to business disputes. You’ll be helping our clients develop strategies to pre-empt, manage and resolve the risks of business conflict. You’ll also assist in investigating alleged misconduct, fraud and non-compliance with regulation.

How do you work together as a team, and still shine as an individual?

For you and your career, this means learning from some of the most experienced transactions professionals in the industry on how to answer even the most complex business problems in a systematic way. Plus you’ll have access to continuous professional training and development to keep your technical skills and industry knowledge ahead of the curve.

It’s also an opportunity to master a broad range of business and consulting skills that will set you up for life — such as building relationships, networking, interpersonal skills, communication and presenting skills, and influencing and negotiating skills.

What if one door opened a window on the world?

Being part of a global professional services network means you’ll have exposure to the world’s largest organizations, fastest-growing companies and private equity firms on some of the biggest and most complex engagements in the global market. No matter what part of Transaction Advisory Services you work in, you’ll build strong relationships with client executives and their operational staff, and you’ll develop a strong network among a variety of industry stakeholders.

What if changing your perceptions meant a completely new reality?

Through working closely as part of deal teams, you’ll learn how to coordinate stakeholders and collaborate effectively with others. You will also have the opportunity to work as part of a high-performing team with colleagues who are focused on providing the best possible approach for the client and work together to achieve goals.

You’ll be surrounded by people who’ll encourage you to be yourself and provide the guidance and support you need to help you learn, achieve and develop faster.

Wanted: strategic business advisor, diplomat, analyst and savvy technologist to work in Tax

“The scope and role of the tax function are changing. Disruptive forces, such as globalization, transparency and digitization, have given rise to both enhanced regulatory scrutiny and more complex business models. The tax function’s focus is consequently expanding from technical reporting, compliance and tax planning, to technology and digital tax, tax-related risk management and business-enabled tax planning.  As a result, tax is being drawn out of its traditional silo and into the broader business.”
