The opportunity

You will help our clients evaluate and enhance their business. You will be part of our account centric growth strategy focusing on issue-based and competency-driven client needs. That's what differentiates EY in the advisory marketplace.

Key Responsibilities

In Risk Assurance, you'll build valued relationships with external clients and internal peers and develop a portfolio of business by focusing on high impact opportunities. You'll lead presentations and proposals for moderately complex projects - or elements of highly complex projects - and provide subject matter insight to bids and proposals. You’ll lead client engagement, manage teams and support senior managers and directors to deliver projects. Further, you'll also be actively contributing to improve the operational efficiency on projects and internal initiatives, consistently drive projects to completion and ensure a high quality work delivery. Under guidance you'll lead teams - or parts of teams – on engagements, where you'll maintain a clear focus on anticipating and identifying risks, and escalate issues as appropriate. As a highly motivated professional and a good communicator, you may be required to convey technical content in business language with senior management. You’ll also need to be a team player who is not only looking to enhance their own career, but recognizes the value in developing others and strengthening the team. Therefore, as an influential member of the team, you'll help to create a positive learning culture, coach and counsel junior team members and help them to develop.
