“The ACG provides consultants and senior consultants the opportunity to easily work across competencies and industries within Advisory while also forming a strong internal network where learnings and information is readily shared.

The work I predominately do focuses on working with senior leadership across the Government, not for profit and private sector to assist companies in defining their future direction and operations. Throughout my time at EY the exposure I have had to senior leaders and the broad understanding of a large range of businesses I have gained, has given me an unmatchable start to my career.

EY - PriyalPriyal
Consultant, IT Advisory

“I’m Priyal and I joined EY as a graduate last year. I work within Advisory as part of the IT Advisory team and my role is to help with assessing businesses and their IT systems to identify how they can make their business more efficient. We work with lots of different clients in different sectors.


I graduated with a Bachelors of Technology (Honours) in Information Technology. My degree gave me a wide range of skills in areas of Information Systems and Programming. In my last year at university I worked on a project with a health business to work on automating their reporting system. This gave me technical knowledge that I use in my business intelligence projects at EY.

I realised the business intelligence and business transformation side of my degree attracted me more compared to the programming side. However, one thing that I knew was that I wanted was to be in a role that integrates my passion for IT with the ability to interact with clients to help them on their road to success.

Why EY?

One of the Advisory Managers was speaking at a presentation about how different each day is, the range of projects EY was working on within business intelligence and business transformation and also the broad range of clients that they got to work with. It really clicked with me and I thought EY would give me an opportunity to work on a range of projects in areas which I was interested in and I would also be able to combine my IT skills and my interpersonal skills.

Career highlight

One of my recent projects involved attended various meetings with key individuals from a client to understand their business. For example, how they recover their systems in an event of a disaster like the policies and contracts they have in place, security, IT Architecture, their Disaster Recovery Plan. During the week, I was also going through documents to identity issues and I discussed these with my manager and came up with recommendations to the client.

My advice to students

Don’t be afraid if you haven’t decided what you want to do yet, take every opportunity that you come across. This is how you will figure out what you like and don’t and help you choose your career path. Most importantly, work hard no matter what you’re doing.”

EY - BrianBrian
Consultant, EYC3

My studies in Computer Science provided me with the technical background which I still leverage today. A lot of the theory that you learn in units such as data modelling, and statistics form the basis of data analysis that is performed today. Additionally, my engineering degree offered me the ability to develop my critical thinking, analysis, and presentation skills during my study; invaluable skills that you will apply when optimising and building your work.

In 2015 I took up a vacationer position at EY (three weeks of real experience with real clients), and in 2016 I moved into a graduate position at EYC3 as a consultant. The work has offered me flexibility and mobility that I would have never considered while at University; building upon my skillset that I acquired during university. Over the course of 12 months a few of my major projects include: having the opportunity to fly to Sydney in a data migration project leveraging the use of the cloud; building a desktop application to automate the generation of financial reporting documents; and designing and developing an entire end to end ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) approach for analytics and data visualisation to enhance processes in a client’s project.

The best advice I can give to students is to soak up as much information as possible, you never know if you will like something if you don’t try it! That boring sounding unit that you decide to take during your third year might actually prove to be the unit which you enjoy the most, and learnt the most out of!

EY - NathanielNathaniel
Consultant, Technology Advisory

I am a Consultant in the Technology Advisory team focusing on Robotic Process Automation and started my career with EY as a graduate. I help clients understand how they can use emerging technologies, such as robotics and artificial intelligence, to improve their business operations. I graduated with a Bachelor of Information Systems (Co-op) from UNSW. One memorable project that I have recently worked on was with a large IT Services provider to build a five year automation roadmap which will transform the way they do business. With strong support from senior leadership, we were encouraged to challenge how all parts of their organisation operate and how they will operate in the future. Learning about many new technologies, from robotic process automation, autonomics to artificial intelligence really opened my eyes to the scale and depth to which this will impact their clients. Digital disruption affects the work I’m doing with my clients as we are constantly seeking to improve our own way of working and help our clients. This means using robotics to automate some of our own manual, repetitive tasks, which allows us to focus on cognitive activities that add greater value. Looking forward, I see even larger impacts as artificial intelligence and machine learning mature, which is particularly exciting for me.

EY - GabriellaGabriella
Consultant, Technology Advisory

I work in the Cyber Security team and have been with EY for six months. My role is to help clients manage their cyber security risk more effectively.  Working with a variety of public and private sector clients, our team advises on protecting assets, managing risk and improving the capability and maturity of their cyber security controls. I graduated from the Australian National University in 2016 with a Bachelor of International Security Studies and a Bachelor of Pacific Studies. 

A project that I have recently worked on was in the automotive and transport industry helping them transform their approach to cyber security and develop an advanced cyber strategy.  As a team we looked at threat assessments, threat intelligence reports, current state and future state cyber risk assessments and a target state operating model.  This engagement has been particularly exciting as I was able to engage with multiple parts of the business assisting the team with deliverables from strategy through to implementation.

Digital disruption affects the work I’m doing with my clients as it is driving manual and human processes towards automation, which increases the attack surface available for potential cyber threats. Cyber incident not only affect technology, but also people and processes. As a result organisations are seeking greater integration between cyber security and business. Many organisations are also exploring how going digital can be a business enabler while cyber security continues to protect assets from threats and risks with appropriate controls.
