Within EY, CFO Advisory (“CFOA”) operates across a global network and the UK has dedicated team focussing on Financial Services clients.

The opportunity

There is an opportunity to join CFOA team to focus on Banking and Capital Markets (“BCM”) clients.

We are looking for Senior Consultants to join the team and be integral parts of our delivery teams, helping our BCM clients improve and overcome any problems. While we typically work with our clients’ Finance functions, we may work with any area of the client.

Our clients are varied, running the entire the spectrum from the largest global banks to entrepreneurial start-ups / fintechs.

To qualify for the role you must have:

  • A strong accounting background;
  • An ability to network effectively within large organisations and build relationships with individuals and clients
