      Is Assurance just for accountants?

      Although Assurance services has its roots in accountancy, that is just the beginning of the story. Forget number crunching in a windowless room – you’ll be right there on-site with EY clients, reviewing strategy, assessing risk, forecasting growth. And, while technology does the routine work, you’ll have time to really get to know and understand your clients and their businesses. You may be surprised to learn that across all parts of Assurance teams, we offer bespoke roles in data analytics or emerging technologies where you can create innovative approaches to support EY clients.

      Bring your analytical and innovation mindsets. Bring your thirst for knowledge and learning. Bring a healthy skepticism and an eye for detail. We’ll give you access to every kind of business there is, so you can help to make it work better.

      Innovation is not just about implementing technology. Innovation is about people, culture and mindset.

      Collaborate on globally integrated teams and embrace change

      Whatever you do, we’ll do it together. Teamwork is the cornerstone of our success in Assurance.

      EY teams are diverse and work across borders and cultures. We embrace digital technology in an agile and intelligent way. This helps us better meet our clients’ needs, enhance their experience and increase the quality and value of what we do.

      The EY journey never stops. EY professionals constantly embrace change to reflect the rapidly transforming digital landscape, and actively rethink the skills we need from the next generation of audit professionals.

      Yet in all this, the human element is – and will always be – critical. We believe that combining human curiosity with forward-thinking technology is the ultimate innovation. And that’s where you play such an important role.
