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. Get a real feel for how we help our clients to identify and manage these risks to protect their stakeholders.

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 clients' sites too.

You’ll have the opportunity to take part in web-based training, shadow senior colleagues and even visit clients’ offices.

If everything works out well, you could even secure a job here after you graduate.

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

Entry requirements

If you’re in your penultimate year at university or if you’re already in your final year but will be doing a one-year master’s degree or taking a gap year, this internship is for you. You’ll need a 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 a client's 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.
