AI, Senior Consultant

  • AI Senior Consultant



    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.


    We live in a data rich world and more & more of our personal and business interactions are being guided by the application of advanced analytics and artificial intelligence (AI).  At EY, we are helping organisations transform, to continually improve the way they do business to enable them to be at the forefront of their market.  We are doing this by defying the norm and giving them the tools and knowledge to become insight focussed and data enabled.


    As an experienced Data Scientist & AI Engineer you know that Analytics is not just a technical discussion, rather it is a combination of the technical and domain knowledge, aimed at the right business audience.  At EY we have the right market access and business relationships, so when we combine it with your passion & talent for AI, we really can make a better working world.


    We have a fast-growing Data & Analytics practice within Advisory, where Data Science & AI Engineers are at the tip of the spear for driving growth.  Whether you are an expert in computer vision, have a passion for NLP, love playing with Graph we would really like to hear from you.  We also believe all sector experience has something to offer, so whether you are Telco or FS, Consumer Products or Utilities, it will all add to the richness of services we can offer our clients.


    Your Responsibilities


    We are looking to bring in talented people like you across all our grades.  No day would be ‘typical’, but you could expect to be involved in some or all of the activities listed below during the course of your career:

    • Working with your team on providing presentations and tenders for new business
    • Research & development of new AI based offerings
    • Leading & delivering client solutions using a range of DS/AI technologies
    • Learning about new technologies/research and how they could be applied for the benefit of our clients
    • Mentoring other experienced and aspiring Data Science & AI Engineers
    • Development of innovative prototypes to bring to life our capability
    • Speaking at conferences, meetups and other EY brand promotion events   
    • Blogging about what we do
    • Collaborating with our partners and other parts of EY


    Skills & Attributes for Success


    Clearly your technical expertise is welcomed and expected, but we are also looking for your experience and guidance to drive the right solution and approach for the problem at hand.  To be transformative, we often have to go after the ‘too hard’ business problem, which requires our people to be creative and really challenge themselves to deliver. We want you to be thinking how you can apply your knowledge and push yourself to learn more in order to solve the difficult stuff.


    If you have some or all of the below, then get in touch:

    • Strong communication, collaborative & team player skills
    • Professional experience in delivery of advanced analytics/DS/AI projects
    • Excellent knowledge of mathematical, probability & statistics principles, and of algorithm theory
    • Detailed knowledge of a range of AI techniques including, graph data analytics, time series, NLP, deep learning, supervised and unsupervised machine learning etc
    • Programming skills in Python or R, Spark and SQL
    • Excellent communication skills, with the ability to analyse and clearly articulate complexities in a simple, clear and compelling way
    • Worked with open source data science libraries and confidently apply them to various problem types
    • Experience of using the latest Data science platforms (e.g. Databricks, AzureML) and frameworks (e.g. Tensorflow, MXNet, scikit-learn)
    • Data wrangling and manipulation techniques
    • Experience of development & deployment tooling, such as Jenkins, Ansible, Docker etc


    Ideally, you’ll also have

    • Software engineering experience (e.g. coding standards, version control, testing, review)
    • Experience of IoT
    • Domain knowledge across public sector, utilities, pharma, consumer products, telco or retail


    Whilst we are looking for machine learning experts, we aren’t looking for machines; what we need is your human IQ and EQ to be part of our high performing team.  Success isn’t achieved from a cookie cutter template, nor from re-inventing the wheel every time, rather it’s a combination of balancing the innovation and industrialisation experience you can bring.

We strive to achieve the right balance for our people, enabling us to deliver excellent client service whilst allowing you to build your career without sacrificing your personal priorities.
