Technology Risk

  • Bring your passion for problem solving and analysing information and help to ensure our clients IT systems are safe, secure and fit for purpose.

    Technology is at the heart of most modern organisations. As well as opening a world of opportunities, technology exposes organisations to a variety of risks. Our Technology Risk teams combine digital know-how with advanced technology to help clients understand and transform their businesses. Our experience helps clients grow, manage, protect and, when necessary, transform their businesses. Together, we shape entire industries by applying the right technological solutions to real-world problems. Your diversity of thought will only strengthen our work within this incredibly varied business area.


    We have a number of work streams for you to experience which help EY clients on matters including improving their processes/governance policies and establishing future-focused strategies. Across all of the work streams, you will be given the opportunity as you grow in your career to lead meetings, identify issues and propose solutions. You will work with, and get to know, senior stakeholders at EY clients up to board level.

    How’s it structured?

    After an EY induction, you’ll join your team in UK & Ireland and start working on real client projects. Whilst you’re getting to know more about them and their business needs, you’ll start learning about the technology we use to test controls and analyse data.


    Along the way you’ll shadow senior colleagues and you could even go on secondments, supported by your own personal counsellor who’ll help guide your growth. This kind of exposure, together with working towards your qualifications, will open up many more opportunities within EY and beyond. 


    You may also start studying for relevant professional qualifications, which may include IT audit or accounting. It’s a lot of learning but you’ll have plenty of support from your team, mentors and a career coach too. Before you know it, you’ll achieve your qualifications, be creating reports and presenting your findings to clients and by the end of the programme, be ready to lead your own teams and projects.


    If you want to drive innovation, explore your interests and help us to build a better working world, this opportunity is for you. You'll join an inclusive environment where your voice, ideas and inspirations will be welcomed, whilst building your own exceptional EY experience.
