Working in Consulting Service Delivery

By combining expert knowledge with the latest technology, we help clients navigate ever‑changing global regulations and the impact they can have on their business.
EY Consulting Service Delivery (CSD) collect, analyse and enhance ‘Know Your Customer’ records for Financial Services institutions. This is the information used to prove the identity of an individual or company when they apply for a bank account or enter into a business relationship.
The work carried out by our CSD teams allows our clients to better assess the level of risk involved with a particular business relationship and make relevant decisions on how to manage the risks accordingly. We work closely with our clients to help identify customer records which do not meet the relevant standards and assist them in bringing these in line with the required expectations. This can also involve assisting our clients with Transaction Monitoring activities, where Financial Services institutions use automated software which is programmed to flag transactions on an account which meet certain criteria e.g. above a threshold limit.
CSD teams then work to assess these transactions against the, 'Know Your Customer records', to determine whether they are in-line with expectations or whether disclosure to the relevant authorities is required.
Today, IT and data management are such an integral part of our clients’ operations that even the smallest mistake or security breach can have a substantial impact on their reputation and business performance. CSD teams work closely with some of the World’s biggest financial organisations on key IT issues, helping them assess, transform and monitor their risks and controls, either as stand-alone services or alongside our Consulting colleagues.
The Financial Conduct Authority, who regulate Financial Services firms in the UK, carry out thematic reviews which explore emerging risks or issues across the sector. Recent reviews include investigations into how banks treat customers in financial difficulty, such as those who have fallen into arrears with their mortgage payments (sometimes referred to as secured debts), or loans, credit cards and overdrafts (unsecured debts). Due to the regulator focussing on these issues, our clients require the support of our teams to ensure that they have treat their customers fairly in relation to how they manage these issues.
Our qualified assessors work to explore a range of suitability issues, including the treatment of customers in financial difficulty as well as reviews of investment and mortgage advice, pensions and regulated complaints handling.
In our Transformation Management Office (TMO) based within CSD, our teams of innovative and experienced professionals lead our clients through complex transformations, including business, technology-led and regulatory change. During these transformations, we develop the structure, governance, tools and technology to create efficiencies and learnings that allow businesses to focus their time on strategic priorities and deliverables.
Once you join our TMO, you’ll be working in a supportive team to navigate our clients through multi-million-pound engagements and large-scale transformational projects, and will deliver the strategic goals and vision of the organisation. You’ll also have the opportunity to collaborate and build your network with other business areas across EY, whilst developing experiences and skills for the future.
