    When applying at EY, you will have to make a choice for what kind of clients you would like to work for: starting your career within Financial Services Organization (FSO) or within what we call “Industries”.
    FSO means you will work for Financial institutions such as banking & capital markets, insurance, asset management, pension funds, etc.
    When you choose for “Industry clients’ you will work for all kind of sectors except Financial Institutions. So you may work for clients active in Transport, logistics, manufacturing, oil & gas, pharma, retail, service providers, etc.

    No such thing as an average day.

    For Auditors at EY, there’s no such thing as an average day. Quite simply because we tackle all aspects of Audit, have a wide variety of clients and responsibilities. We are not stuck behind a desk but go places. We can’t offer you a routine job, but we do promise you an extraordinary one. Becoming an Auditor at EY is a great way to start a fantastic career.

    Our daily work sounds like this:

    Our routine is no routine

    Auditors at EY tackle all different aspects of Audit, have a wide variety of clients and get all kinds of responsibilities. To name a few: we analyse business processes, identify areas requiring improvement, conduct our own investigation of financial information and make the best recommendations in order to create added value for our clients by using the newest audit technology. We don’t have average jobs, we have extraordinary ones.

    Working together works for us

    Auditors at EY are all part of one effective team. We work together, develop our skills together and are always ready to help one another. We love gaining knowledge and are eager to share our experiences and expertise with colleagues. By the way, being team players doesn’t mean we can’t work independently. In fact, we’re actually pretty good at that as well.

    We feel at home out of home

    EY Auditors are not stuck behind one single desk. We work on clients sites and liaise with other EY departments to ensure a smooth delivery of the Audit process. As you’ve probably guessed by now, we’re client oriented people with excellent communication skills and an innovative and solution-based approach to problem solving.

    A career in Assurance is about much more than numbers: it’s about understanding how companies work, digging deeper and staying curious. The various soft skills and the global mindset that you develop, last a lifetime.
