    As EY Consulting evolves, so will you

    Our Consulting Skills Curriculum will hone your transformation, technical, communication and leadership capabilities across the six skillsets EY defines as essential for a successful EY Consultant.

    Our strategic focus on collaboration will offer you opportunities to grow and progress in different ways. As we work more collaboratively and in multi-disciplinary and globally integrated teams, you’ll have more opportunities to learn from colleagues, expand your perspective and get involved with different work.

    You’ll continue to take advantage of working in a globally connected firm like EY, including global mobility opportunities, future-focused learning programs such as EY Tech MBA and EY Badges. Multicultural thinking and collaboration are at the heart of our shared success. Every cross-border experience is an opportunity for you to learn, lead, innovate and grow, as you work on new and challenging engagements.

      Allow your curiosity to unlock our collective destiny

      Though we’re living in a time of great uncertainty, what hasn’t changed is the value we place on the uniquely human ability to offer insights and empathy, while using technology to make an impact.

      When you join EY Consulting, you’ll do more than offering insights. Your agility and curiosity will help clients navigate uncertain times by welcoming change and rallying others to seek the answers they need for today and the future. 

      It all starts with a team of people as diverse as their skill sets. As part of this team, you’ll be helping EY clients realise transformation by putting humans at the center, delivering technology at speed and leveraging innovation at scale. We believe these core drivers create long-term value for our people, clients and society.

      You’ll work with clients to help them imagine their future, by using the future as your starting point. With our unique Transformation Realised framework, you’ll help clients bridge the gap between who they are today and who they need to be in years to come. You’ll define, design and deliver the steps that will get them there and become a versatile transformation expert in the process. Just imagine the impact you will have on the global businesses and emerging entrepreneurs who trust EY to consult on their most complex challenges and exciting opportunities.

      Here, you will define your own success. You’ll be empowered to make a meaningful impact, your way. Driven by your own personal purpose, you’ll bring out the best in yourself and others, while inspiring your teams and clients to build a better world together.

      Expand your horizons

      Sometimes, the answers to complex problems can be found where you least expect them. For example, we worked with a client who wanted to tackle the problem of wine fraud. We asked ourselves, could blockchain – most commonly used in insurance and finance - be the fix? Could the status of each bottle – between producers, brokers, importers, wholesalers, distributors and retailers – be recorded in a blockchain? We built a process to do just that, including drones and Internet of Things (loT) technology, and told the story of each wine’s DNA from harvest to the history of the vineyard and the wine's development.

      The variety of clients we work with means you will be consulting across all industries and markets. You’ll work with technology in a way that is smart and imaginative. You’ll tap into a network of professionals, technologies and businesses, expanding your horizons and enriching your career.

      Work with the best and brightest

      EY people work side-by-side with our clients to understand the problems they face and build deep and productive relationships with them. It enables us to offer fresh perspectives on what does – or doesn’t – need to change.

      You’ll have the chance to work alongside talented teams in digital, strategy, technology, analytics, cybersecurity, risk and people advisory services. In short, anything we recognise that could help a business work better.

      While EY teams are diverse, our EY Consulting professionals all share certain traits. We’re connected. We’re bold. We’re insightful. We’re critical thinkers. We’re curious learners. We think globally. That’s why we’re more than advisors; we’re trusted and valued consultants. At EY, you won’t be stuck in endless meetings and churning out reports; you’ll work with organisations to offer insightful services to their pressing issues. It’s all part of how we work with clients to build a better working world.
