Is Assurance just for accountants?

In short – no. 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.

    What you can do in Assurance

    The work we do is restoring confidence in the global economy and the investment we’re making in Assurance means that as well as joining one of the largest, most stable employers, you’ll be empowered to develop and be an expert in your field.
