Assurance careers: broaden your experience
On our EY Assurance teams, you’ll ask better questions that drive increased skepticism around financial information, bringing confidence, perspective and visibility to clients. For example, in Assurance, we ask ‘Can greater insights be found by understanding the complexity behind the obvious?’ We think so. That’s why as a professional in our Assurance practice, you’ll look beyond the obvious to identify patterns and trends that deliver powerful business insight. And you’ll do all of this in a culture where you’ll have confidence in your career path, clear perspective into your future and the support and visibility you need to get there.
EY is one of the most trusted, respected and influential organizations in the industry. In EY Assurance, you’ll build a better working world by helping to provide peace of mind by using your skills and experience to give companies, investors and regulators confidence in the validity of financial statements, business-critical information and processes. And, as an EY Assurance professional, you’ll have access to the latest industry insights, methodologies and cutting-edge technology to help you deliver exceptional client service. You’ll work with some of the world’s most well-known brands, as well as the entrepreneurs and visionaries of tomorrow – all while broadening your experience and building career value.

Auditing and accounting careers: giving a clear picture of business
Audit continues to be the dominant core of our work in Assurance and while we take great pride in leading audit share among the Fortune 500, Fortune 1000 and the Russell 3000, EY has also carved out a powerful niche and reputation for serving IPO clients. And there’s never been a more exciting time to be in Audit.
Advances in data analytics capabilities are transforming the audit, and with it the tools and skills necessary to provide effective scrutiny. The way organizations conduct audits will change even more in the next few years, with the net result being our ability to deliver a higher quality audit, as well as more business insight and value to clients.
Because EY is fully embracing an analytics mindset across our business, you will have the opportunity to be on the leading edge of this transformation. We are making significant investments in new technology and ensuring that our people get the learning and development they need to fully leverage intelligent data and analytics, increasing value for our clients beyond the traditional audit.
These are the kinds of tools and technology that can help you be a better audit professional, improving your ability to identify audit risks, obtain evidence and generate unique insights for your clients. And throughout your career with us, dedicated, high-performing EY colleagues will be actively committed to helping you achieve your potential through continuous development, coaching and support, such as our award-winning Audit Academy. The Audit Academy enhances your critical thinking skills by simulating professional judgment decisions and providing instant feedback on those decisions.
We recruit and develop auditors with intellectual curiosity, strong analytical skills and creativity, and attention to detail that allow us to look beyond the numbers and help our clients to address complex problems. We invite you to explore further and learn how your work as an EY auditor can build a better working world by increasing confidence, creating transparency and providing perspective to clients worldwide.
