Assurance careers: broaden your experience
Assurance has never played a more vital role in restoring and maintaining public confidence in the world’s capital markets.
Ernst & Young is one of the most trusted, respected and influential organisations in the industry. A true testament to our reputation is the long standing and deep client relationships we have developed – relationships that you can leverage to build your own personal network. As an assurance professional you’ll have access to the latest accounting and auditing information, follow a global audit methodology, and use leading audit support tools.
Your aim: to provide peace of mind to our clients by using your skills and experience to give companies, investors and regulators confidence in the validity of financial statements, business-critical information or processes.
In doing so, you’ll broaden your experience, building career value and reputation all the time.
Within Assurance we operate in several business areas. Click on the tabs to find out more.
Giving a clear picture of business
As an auditor at Ernst & Young, your main aim 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.
Because we use a Global Audit Methodology in over 130 countries, audit is a practice rich in opportunity. Your exposure to one of the largest and most diverse client portfolios in Australia will deepen your knowledge of an industry sector and broaden your general business acumen.
As an Audit professional you'll be part of a multidisciplinary team focused on providing services to your clients such as responding to regulatory reforms, managing the capital life cycle and improving business operations.
Play a sustainable role
You could also join our Climate Change and Sustainability team. They provide global advice and recommendations that help clients navigate their climate change and sustainability journey with confidence. You’ll need to understand business and regulatory threats and opportunities, and explore and help execute commercial transactions.
You’ll work strategically with clients to help them balance risks, take advantage of opportunities and achieve their full potential in a changing world.
Keeping pace with change
Company reporting has evolved. Organisations now face complex changes including IFRS conversion, mergers, acquisitions, carve-outs and IPOs. Providing financial accounting advisory services will give you an experience rich with variety and challenge. For example, you’ll advise on how to convert from GAAP reporting to IFRS and assist with due diligence on transactions.
Understanding and managing fraud risk
Our Fraud Investigation and Dispute professionals help clients deal with the complex issues of fraud, regulatory compliance and business disputes that could otherwise detract from client efforts to achieve their company’s potential. As part of this team you’ll develop fraud assessment, monitoring and prevention capabilities to identify issues that need addressing. Your focus will be on helping organisations manage fraud risk more effectively and treat it as a critical business priority.
