Job description

Passionate about technology and supporting our clients with some of their biggest challenges? Bring your passion for problem solving and analysing information and help to ensure our clients IT systems are safe, secure and fit for purpose.

What is Technology Risk at EY?

Technology is at the heart of most modern organisations. As well as opening a world of opportunities, technology exposes organisations to a variety of risks. We help our clients to identify and manage these risks to protect their stakeholders.

Why belonging at work matters

EY people share highlights from a new survey of UK employees across different industries.

What will you be doing?

Working in Technology Risk means you'll be working alongside both our Assurance and Consulting teams building relationships with a variety of clients to audit their IT systems and applications. You’ll work with expert teams across different sectors from day one.

You can expect to:

  • Build your knowledge of EY, our business and our client’s businesses
  • Gain a broad understanding of the IT landscape of some of our biggest clients, including their adoption of cloud, use of Artificial Intelligence and Robotic Process Automation, advising them about any associated risks
  • Regularly work on client projects, attending client meetings to identify risks, test controls and provide an opinion on the security of the client’s IT environment.
  • Analyse data, liaising with clients to deliver work to the highest standard that the client trusts
  • Assist in the project management of client engagements
  • Work closely with Assurance colleagues to identify and communicate risks affecting the financial audit
  • Get involved with industry research and client thought leadership.
  • Support business development initiatives to help EY grow their client portfolio.

You may also be required to take on more work, and you should be amenable to longer hours and spending a greater amount of time working away from home, particularly during busy season. You can expect to spend a high proportion of your time on client site too.

As you progress you’ll also take on greater responsibilities. You may become your client’s main contact, regularly working from their offices and spotting profitable business opportunities to take the lead on too.

Along the way you’ll study, shadow senior colleagues and you could even go on secondments, supported by your own personal counsellor who’ll help guide your growth. This kind of exposure, together with working towards your qualifications, will open up many more opportunities within EY and beyond.

Do you have the eye for detail needed to work in Technology Risk?

Entry requirements

You’ll need an honours degree in any STEM subject and a minimum of Level 2/GCSE (or equivalent) in English Language & Maths, three A-levels, 5 Highers or equivalent by the time the programme starts.

“I like the variety this job brings the most. I could be working in my normal office, in another EY office or out working from client site. I could be working as part of a small team with only people from Technology Risk or I could be working as part of a large team involving people from other business areas”Kirsten, Technology Risk Consultant
