Job description

Initiate critical transformation. Evolve complex problems. Imagine scalable success.

Whether you have a passion for data analytics, cyber security or innovative technology generally, join our brightest minds in helping our clients better manage the technological aspect of their businesses. Build your own hands-on experience from day one. Explore your interests and develop the skills you need to design prototypes, build strategies and lead the next big advancement in tech. You’ll learn from some of the best in the business, all while you work towards a professional qualification or industry training.

What is Technology at EY?
We help companies thrive in the transformative age by exploring new ideas and scaling successes. As part of the wider Technology team, you’ll help EY and our clients find new ways of using artificial intelligence (AI) and other innovative technologies to improve their business. Imagine taking responsibility for new technologies that have the power to change the world we live and work in, and using that technology to advise, design, build and transform.

Our Technology teams combine digital know-how with advanced tech to help clients understand and transform their businesses. Our high-performing teams are diverse, inclusive and borderless. Our experience helps clients grow, manage, protect and, when necessary, transform their businesses. Together, we shape entire industries by applying the right technological solutions to real world problems. Your diversity of thought will only strengthen our work within this incredibly varied business area.

What will you be doing?
We offer four programmes in Technology:

  • Cyber Security

Work with companies to protect them from cyber threats.

  • Forensic Technology and Discovery Services – Data Analytics

Help companies facing disputes or investigations build a clear picture of what's happened.

  • IT Risk Assurance - Data Analytics

Help companies test their IT processes, systems and controls, and show them where to make improvements.

  • Tax Technology and Transformation

Transform our client's tax, finance and operations functions through world-class Tax Technology advice and implementation.

Throughout each of these programmes, you’ll work on real client projects and have access to ongoing training and development opportunities, some of which might lead to professional qualifications. Above all, you’ll be supported to grow and take on more responsibilities in your work as the programme progresses. This means being given autonomy and the chance to help us in creating sustainable and long-term value as a connected business. As we progress, so do you.
