The opportunity

Our clients tell us they want to be told something about their business they don’t already know, they want insights they aren’t getting from their systems and people. A role in Assurance Data & Analytics gives you great access to a vast array of clients and their Data, with your findings backed by the powerful EY brand.

Our clients range from household names, through to small businesses you simply wouldn’t think exist.

A typical day probably doesn’t exist, but if it did, it would involve talking to stakeholders to define the scope of an analysis, agreeing with a client’s IT team how you’ll receive the data, data wrangling and cleansing, followed by an analysis phase which could last minutes or weeks. All the work is project based, so there is plenty of variety.

  • Owning deliverables through their lifecycle, with a mix of new and recurring work.

  • A willingness to learn, to work outside your comfort zone, achieving a common goal, supported by a team with diverse backgrounds across a range of geographies.
  • Great written and verbal communication, presentation and client service.
  • Strong team player with a solution focused attitude
  • Ability to juggle multiple conflicting deadlines which typically occur during our busy period.

To qualify for the role you must have

  • Evidence of a logical and detailed oriented mind, able to support our quality agenda and compliance requirements.
  • Experience owning deliverables and performing detailed self-review of work.
  • Proven ability using technology and analytics to solve business problems, deliver insights, or create recommendations.

Ideally, you’ll also have

  • Experience writing code in languages like SQL, Python, R, .NET, Java, VB, ACL, IDEA
  • Data transformation and wrangling tools ranging from SSIS, through to Talend and Alteryx
  • Building visualizations in tools like Spotfire, Tableau, or even D3JS
  • Expertise in an industry or ERP system
  • Awareness of techniques for handling large data sets, ~1bn records in a single table.
  • Experience demonstrating or presenting software/tools to internal or external stakeholders
