Careers in Financial Services and Core Services  

  • What’s the difference between Financial Services and Core Services?

    When you apply for a role, you may have the option to nominate a preference to work in either the Financial Services Sector Organisation (FSO) or Core Services.

    In FSO, you’ll work with a diverse range of clients within the financial services industry across Insurance, Banking, and Capital Markets, and Wealth and Asset Management.  You will be part of our talented FSO team with a wide range of financial services experience both locally and globally in key growth areas including risk and regulation, technology, customer and growth, strategy and business transformation, financial performance, IFRS 17, open banking, sustainability, cybersecurity, actuarial, and data and analytics.  With our deep industry knowledge and experience, we are committed to providing professional services and support to our clients in the financial services sector to help them address some of their most complex challenges. 

    Our Core Services business is slightly different; roles here will give you access to clients across multiple industries, so you’ll get broad experience as you work across different business sectors. We’re a global business so while you’ll focus on clients within New Zealand, you’ll also have opportunities to work across other geographies where possible. 



From day one, I was treated as a valued member of the team, performing meaningful work and interacting face to face with EY clients.
