What is Assurance at EY?

  • Analysing the data that goes into a financial statement to make sure it's true and fair

You may also be required to take on more work, and you should be amenable to longer hours and spending a greater amount of time working away from home, particularly during busy season. You can expect to spend a high proportion of your time on client site too.
