Audit & Governance Fields of Play - Senior Project Manager

Let us introduce you the job offer by EY GDS Poland – a member of the global integrated service delivery center network by EY.

Key to our NextWave strategy is a focus on client centricity. This is a commitment to putting client relationships at the heart of our strategy, operations and processes; and to creating long-term value for clients by taking a connected view of their sectors and the broader business context to help them capitalize on opportunities. To help our account teams translate the needs of our clients and align them to our solutions, services and capabilities, we have established 13 buyer-based fields of play (FoP).
