s a qualified Accountant, I have worked in industry and have been working in Consulting for the last 17 years where I have been supporting organisations with the delivery of their finance transformation using SAP as the enabler. When AgilityWorks transitioned over to EY, that’s when my EY journey began - working here allows me to make a positive difference to clients on a global scale, through innovative technology and SAP.
Working at EY
What has surprised me about EY is the maturity of our delivery model has evolved through the collaborative power of the Global EY and ecosystem from service lines to partnerships, alliances and global networks. The ability to call on the level of expertise is something to be proud of. It also creates the working environment to work with diverse group of individuals across EY.
EY also offers a host of training and support to grow your career. Whether you are looking to enhance your soft skills to more technical skills such as SAP certifications, there’s something for everyone.
Working in SAP
Working as an SAP consultant is really exciting with no two days being the same. Every day, I can work with like-minded individuals delivering best in class end-to-end business solutions for our clients across different industry sectors, whether it’s Energy Utilities, Oil and Gas, Manufacturing to Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) clients.
This could range from short to long term assignments that include responding to client requests or proposals, defining SAP solutions for specific business requirement or processes, delivering proof of concepts, performing business process gap assessment, defining clients SAP roadmap, SAP S/4HANA deployments etc. The top three activities in my role are:
- Speaking to C-Suite executives to understand their finance and business process challenge and working with them collaboratively to drive value using SAP and associated technologies
- Working with EY Partners on existing clients to build relationships and acting as trusted adviser
- Focusing on go-to market strategy looking at innovative SAP technologies to meet the complex and changing business environment of our clients
The best part is taking your clients on a journey and at the end of the day, delivering their business outcomes.
Future of SAP
There is a great opportunity to join the EY AgilityWorks Technology SAP Capability as we are looking to grow the team with consultants from both functional and technical background.

There are over 15,000+ SAP S/4HANA clients with more clients looking to transition from their existing Enterprise Resource Planning solutions to SAP's latest digital core.
