As well as developing your technical skills, you’ll learn about business strategy and business issues. You’ll collaborate with different departments and functions, with the freedom and ability to explore new prototypes and devise your own solutions. You won’t just be implementing new technologies, you’ll be designing the way they’re used. You’ll be transforming businesses, one idea at a time.
You'll find tech-related roles across our business, in all service lines and teams. So whether you're a data specialist, a tax technologist, a tech consultant or a solution architect, find your next great role here.
What you can do in Technology
The insight that we generate from Data & Analytics is not only increasingly important to our clients, but also in fulfilling our purpose of building a better working world. We help our clients to solve some of their most challenging strategic issues.
'Data & Analytics' comprises the following sub-teams:
- Audit Analytics
- Enterprise Intelligence
- Forensic Technology & Discovery Services
- Risk Analytics
- Transaction Analytics
Be part of EY’s Forensic Technology & Discovery Services (FTDS) team and you’ll use state of the art tools to support clients with compliance management, fraud investigation and fraud detection.
The team forms part of the wider Fraud Investigation & Dispute Services (FIDS) business unit and specialises in forensic technology services encompassing eDiscovery, Forensic Data Analytics and IT Forensic investigations.
In the eDiscovery team, you’ll specialise in identifying, collecting and producing large volumes of Electronically Stored Information (ESI) for our clients in the form of emails, documents, databases, audio/video files, social media, web sites and more. You will secure and analyse the information to separate the relevant data for use as evidence for litigations and financial investigations.
Our Forensic Data Analytics team are a global group of technical specialists that practice the full life cycle of data management from the early stages of data scoping and capture, to its management, analysis and reporting. The nature of our work will typically require you to work with large datasets from disparate data sources to support fraud investigations and disputes for our clients covering a range of industries. You’ll achieve this by combining deep forensic investigation knowledge with advanced data analytics techniques such as investigative data linking, social network analysis, statistics, artificial intelligence, machine learning and predictive modelling.
The IT Forensics team are experts over a variety of different disciplines in forensic technology. Our work involves finding out the “who, what, when and how” of an investigation and can provide expert testimony in court if required.
The professional services market is experiencing change like never before. Regulation of the audit market in particular, is changing our business and providing opportunities to grow our firm, grow our relationships with clients and grow our people. There’s never been a more exciting time to join.
Whether you work across a broad range of industries or choose to specialise in financial services, you’ll have the opportunity to work with the world’s biggest organisations, experience a broad range of IT risk client projects and build a successful career.
Your work could involve anything from auditing a major investment bank's foreign-exchange dealing system, helping a top UK insurance firm to assess and improve the quality of its data, or working with a global asset manager to monitor their IT security controls and reduce their exposure to cyber-attack.
We need experienced professionals who are able to work in challenging, diverse and evolving client environments, who can learn quickly and build strong client relationships. Bring us your drive, ideas and knowledge, and we’ll provide the environment and motivation for you to learn and excel in a rapidly growing team.
Our SAP team helps businesses address challenges in the digital era, using a comprehensive, collaborative approach that goes beyond technology to offer business-centric solutions.
In the UK and Ireland, our SAP team focuses on major programme delivery and related services, working across all industries to ensure that businesses have the right technologies and systems in place to operate efficiently and effectively. We work closely with technologists and specialists within the team, and we also draw upon the diverse skills and expertise available at EY. It’s a collaborative effort that involves all areas of the business, allowing us to offer unique solutions to client issues.
The pace of technology change is fast and getting faster every year. Now, the focus for our clients is about agility, speed and certainty to outcome, embracing the digital wave with insight and customer centricity with all services provided in a secure, trusted and compliant manner. Our Technology practice provides differentiated focus on these key business themes to help our clients solve better questions around technology.
Our vision is to be recognised as a leading provider of differentiated technology consulting services, harnessing new disruptive technology, alliances and attracting talented people to solve our clients' issues. It's an exciting time to join us and grow your career as a technology professional.
We are looking for highly motivated, articulate individuals who have experience of the whole technology lifecycle and are passionate about designing innovative solutions to solve complex business problems.
Our Technology Consulting practice includes the following sub-teams:
- Data & Analytics
- Enterprise Architecture
- IT Strategy
- Programme Delivery
- Robotic Process Automation
- Strategic Sourcing
Technology may power disruption, but it’s people who harness the technology.
A technology career is about far more than leading-edge innovations. It’s about the application of these technologies in the real world to make a real, meaningful impact. It’s about your opinions and diversity of perspective. It’s about social responsibility and empathy. You’ll be excited by the challenge of embracing new technology, while also appreciating its impact on the wider world.
Work with global organisations, advanced technologies and brilliant leaders
In a technology career at EY, you could be collaborating with global organisations like GE Digital, IBM, Microsoft, Cisco, LinkedIn and SAP. You’ll help to set a new standard for the way we can use emerging technologies, such as AI, blockchain, Internet of Things, and data analytics.
As well as giving you access to some of the world’s most forward-thinking technologies, EY global alliances help you to work with some of the brightest minds across each industry to explore powerful new ideas. You’ll have access to professionals in different disciplines, all working together to make a real impact on the way the world works today.
There is a unique opportunity to challenge the status quo by harvesting analytics and artificial intelligence to reinvent the traditional approach to problem solving.

Faster transactions with blockchain
The potential of blockchain is immense: it can streamline EY clients’ business processes and help to reimagine what a secure network is. Working with blockchain we help businesses to mitigate their risk of cybersecurity issues, helping bring more confidence to markets.
Seizing the upside of analytics
Even digital “non-natives” are benefitting from analytics embedded into the heart of today’s businesses. You’ll help clients to use analytics in many innovative ways: to help drive investment decisions; to mitigate risk; to improve customer satisfaction; and to increase the value of interactions. With the value of data ever increasing, it’s little wonder it’s at the heart of what we do.
Our latest thinking
Embracing intelligent automation
Robotic process automation is having a transformative impact on the world we live in. There are upsides, such as increased efficiencies, increased output and cost reduction, but there are also human implications. In an EY career, you’ll work with clients to make positive change by helping to automate mundane, time-sapping work in every industry — from tax to HR, and supply chain to regulatory compliance. Thanks to robotic, autonomous systems replacing human tasks, you’ll help to unlock deeper insights and solutions to problems.
Artificial Intelligence, human impact
At some point in the future, humans will have more daily interactions with bots than they do with each other. When we talk about a career at EY in AI, we believe it’s less about the technology itself, and more about its application. We really are at the tip of the iceberg in understanding the impact it can have across sectors such as healthcare, clean energy and even food production. Here at EY, we say that bots are built, but AI is applied. Your career in AI will give you a global platform to work with a technology that could eventually change not just the world — but the health of our planet.
