What is Business Risk Services at EY?

We work with both Assurance and Consulting teams to help businesses be confident that their systems are safe and work as they’re supposed to. We ask questions like ‘what could go wrong?’ and ‘how can we prevent this?’, then create solutions and put them in place.

What’s it like?

Being recognised as an ‘expert’ by EY colleagues was a career highlight for Jo. See how her grad programme has put her on track to achieve her ambition of becoming a manager.

How’s it structured?

From day one, you’ll work directly with clients, often at their offices, getting to know how they work. So by year two, you’ll be leading and coaching colleagues, owning client relationships and growing your project management and team skills. But whether you’re on the factory floor or in the board room, in the UK or overseas, you’ll do it all while working closely with and being supported by your team.

From induction and throughout structured and on-the-job training (the best way to learn), you’ll also be studying for industry qualifications. Our culture of coaching will guide you through lots of learning curves and makes being Senior Consultant by year three very achievable.

Where could an assurance career take you?

Working in Assurance at EY, you’ll get to work across different sectors, gain opportunities to work abroad and open doors for your future career.
