Jan's story

"I have been with EY more than once over the past 20 years and each time I return it feels like coming home. This is because EY employees make the effort to look after each other."

My specialism is in data and analytics and I have been able to play a lead role in creating a truly joined up firm wide approach, collaborating across all 4 of the service lines in the UK firm as well as abroad, meeting with our business leaders to advise and influence them on the types of technology and capability EY needs for the coming years ahead.  EY has invested over the past couple of years in tools and technology to make sure that the team has what it needs to deliver the best solutions for our clients.

In this rapidly changing data centric industry, it is important to keep up to date with technologies, and so I make sure to take the time away from client work to actively participate in delivering and attending our global training programmes to give our staff the skills and opportunity to thrive in the new technological environments.

EY has given me access to the most prestigious clients with really challenging issues across a wide range of industry sectors and while a lot is expected from us, there is always new and interesting work to get involved in.  In EY the focus on sustainable growth gives everyone the opportunity to achieve their potential.  The firm has a thoroughly integrated approach to diversity and inclusiveness, and they have provided me with career development training and support, ensuring that talented people from any background can rise to the top.  All of this ensures that we find, develop and retain the best people in the market.
