Technology Risk Graduate

"The idea of helping clients solve a problem of great importance plus taking it further and providing solutions that have a long-term impact on the profitability and sustainability of the company was very exciting."

Starting my career at EY

I heard about EY when I was in secondary school in Nigeria. I was very curious when I was young and wanted to see the companies I would like to work in when I moved across to UK. I came across the EY website and completely fell in love with the company. I'm so proud to be part of this brand! I always knew I wanted to be in Consulting ever since I was young! Apart from being a footballer, being a consultant was one of the only jobs I imagined myself in. The idea of helping clients solve a problem of great importance plus taking it further and providing solutions that have a long-term impact on the profitability and sustainability of the company was very exciting.

My role

I work in Technology Risk as a Senior Consultant. I analyse the IT systems that have a direct or indirect impact on a company’s financial statement produced at the end of the year, and ensure that the system is operating effectively. My clients are mainly Financial Services which include Banks, Insurance Companies, Asset Management Companies, Credit Card Provides and 3rd Party financial service providers.

My advice

Make sure you are joining for the right reasons; your passion needs to align with that of EY, because that is the only way you will get the full experience that EY offers.
