Job Description

At EY, you’ll have the chance to build a career as unique as you are, with the global scale, support, inclusive culture and technology to become the best version of you. And we’re counting on your unique voice and perspective to help EY become even better, too. Join us and build an exceptional experience for yourself, and a better working world for all.


EY Assurance services — comprising Audit, Financial Accounting Advisory Services (FAAS), Forensic & Integrity Services (Forensics) and Climate / Sustainability Services — address risk and complexity while identifying opportunities to enhance trust and confidence in business and the capital markets. EY Audit furthers the public interest by proactively addressing stakeholders’ needs for trust and confidence in the capital markets. 

Together, EY Assurance services protect and promote sustainable, long-term value for stakeholders. Clients require greater insight from the services provided, while regulators and the capital markets want greater assurance over a wider range of measures and a deeper sense of trust across the business world. And EY people want more varied experiences and opportunities to add greater value.


The opportunity


Note: This role can be recruited at Senior Manager or Manager rank depending on candidate's skills and qualifications.


The Global Audit Methodology and Enablement (M&E) team is charged with driving global Audit Quality initiatives to ensure audit and assurance engagement quality is the single most important dimension for decision-making, the professional responsibility we hold each other accountable for and the key measure that our reputation stands. Within M&E, the Enablement sub-team aims to enhance engagement quality through the development, implementation, and maintenance of Global Assurance enablement.


Your key responsibilities
