Careers in Assurance: creating confidence for the business community worldwide

Do you want to understand what makes a business tick?

Assurance helps organisations and their investors to understand a company’s financial health. It gives them confidence that the results they report give a true and fair picture of their business.

When you work in Assurance, you’ll develop rewarding client relationships with reputable business leaders in a wide variety of industries. People will see you as a trusted advisor, who helps them understand what’s really going on in their organisation.

Discover how each part of a business operates — and what makes it succeed or fail. By understanding the different rules that guide business and financial decisions, you’ll learn how to investigate, analyse and report on an organisation’s financial performance.

Where you can focus

When you first start, you’ll develop broad 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:

1. A career in Audit and Accounting
Today’s global financial markets demand international consistency in accounting and auditing standards and approaches. You will have the challenge of meeting these using a range of resources, enabling you to help our clients navigate – and thrive – in this environment.

Within Audit and Accounting you can work in a variety of different areas, including:

External Audit


External Audit at EY plays a huge role in preserving the integrity of the global business landscape. 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 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.

Climate Change and Sustainability


Our Climate Change and Sustainability Services team is grounded in our core skills in Assurance, Tax, Transactions and Advisory. Working in this area you’ll be able to help our clients understand business and regulatory threats and opportunities, explore and execute commercial transactions, monitor performance and assure public disclosures on progress.

Financial Accounting Advisory


As an assurance professional you’ll learn how to deliver relevant business and industry insights, and help non-audit clients focus on issues that matter to them. Through our Financial Accounting Advisory Services, you’ll help with many current critical issues, including IFRS conversion support, implementation of new accounting standards and assistance with public offerings.


2. Fraud Investigations & 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.

Careers in Transactions: helping clients buy, sell and merge with other organisations

Do you work well in demanding situations?

Transaction Advisory Services helps businesses and government bodies make big decisions around their capital agenda by advising on how to raise, preserve, optimise and invest their capital in the best way possible. Do they need to buy a company or merge with a competitor? Should they sell an underperforming business? Do they have the right business model?

Working in Transactions puts you in the best position to guide clients making these critical decisions. Very soon you’ll get involved in highly strategic projects. You’ll see first-hand how important transactions are conceived, crafted and negotiated.

Your role may even involve being part of a team working across Asia-Pacific deals, giving you even greater exposure and opportunity to learn from colleagues across the area. In the process, you'll gain a reputation as a trusted business advisor.

Where will this reputation take you??

Where you can focus

As you develop your career in Transactions, you’ll be able to build technical depth and explore a breadth of business issues. To help you decide where to specialize, your first few years will be spent in at least three different areas of the business. Your options will include:

M&A Advisory


Today, more than ever, organizations must plan carefully for growth and analyze their capital agenda and related transactions in the context of their overall business strategy. As part of our M&A team you’ll help identify the right transaction and capital strategy for clients.

Transaction Real Estate


In this dynamic and complex market you’ll help clients develop and execute real estate transactions by providing objective and responsive advice. You’ll offer a dedicated and committed service to assist clients in achieving the potential of their real estate assets, portfolios or companies.

Project Finance


Working in this award-winning team, you’ll focus on Private Finance Initiative (PFI) and Public Private Partnership (PPP) projects. You’ll learn about key infrastructure sectors, from energy to transport – enabling you to provide highly valued independent advice.

Transaction Support


A transaction can be one of the most complex and risky business propositions our clients can undertake. You will help them achieve the best possible outcome, from initial strategic assessment to implementation and post-integration. Your aim will be to improve their negotiating position and accelerate a smooth transaction with minimal disruption.



Join our market-leading Restructuring practice and you will help local and global clients change their organizations throughout the whole economic cycle. You’ll add to your technical knowledge with in-depth industry experience, building your understanding of the specific competitive challenges our clients face.

Transaction Tax


Every transaction has tax implications. Working with a worldwide network of professional advisors you’ll combine diverse cross-border transaction experience with local tax knowledge across a broad spectrum of industry sectors. This way you’ll help clients make informed decisions and navigate the tax implications of every transaction.

Operational Transaction Services


In this business area you’ll help clients drive operational value from their capital strategy. You’ll learn how to develop the right plan for complex integrations, divestments and carve-outs – and how to implement it properly. You’ll play a key role in an integrated approach that focuses on our clients’ financial, tax and operational needs.

Valuation & Business Modeling


As a transaction professional you will help clients evaluate and confirm their capital and growth strategies. You will work with clients in areas such as understanding the specific value proposition for complex business holdings and investments, and identifying non-core assets for divesting.

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

Jay Nibbe, EY Global Vice Chair, Tax

EY Global Vice Chair, 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.”

At EY, you’ll develop your business, diplomatic, analytic and tech skills to stay on top of tax trends and acquire an in-depth knowledge of clients’ businesses.

When the old rules don’t apply, who is making the new ones?

No matter what your professional background or degree of study, a tax professional at EY is:

  • Curious and an active learner
  • Nimble, innovative and open to new ideas
  • A business advisor and C-suite influencer
  • An inclusive leader with a global mindset
  • Capable of leveraging the opportunities offered by real-time tax dashboards and data visualization
  • Able to leverage cutting edge technologies such as robotics, artificial intelligence and automation
  • A critical thinker, capable of complex and creative problem solving

At EY, tax professionals combine agility, diverse thought, tax technical depth and the power of technology and analytics to provide exceptional client service. In a rapidly changing business and tax environment, we develop dynamic leaders who, through their professionalism and entrepreneurial spirit, make a positive impact on the working world.
