The EY Financial Services (FS) – Consulting team is continuing to grow and develop unique consulting propositions aligned to the market needs and demand. We are currently looking for exceptional Manager level consultants with strong experience in data across the Finance and Risk domains to join the team and drive continued success on a global scale.

EY’s FS Consulting team is experiencing an exciting period of growth due to the Finance sector coming under increasing pressure to transform their Process, Data and Technology capabilities, deliver on a complex change agenda over the next 3 to 5 years and marrying ongoing regulatory demands with new and emerging technology and data related initiatives. As a result of these demands, many Finance functions are turning to us for support. This role will offer a huge variety of challenges and opportunities to make a serious impact on our business, our client’s businesses and your career.

FS Consulting works collaboratively with our global peers and our clients to enhance their ability to solve complex business problems through data led solutions.
