Assurance - UKI Technology Risk - Manager - UK Wide



London, UK · France
Posted on Sunday, June 9, 2024

Technology plays an ever more important part in our world and is at the heart of most modern organisations. As well as opening a world of opportunities, technology exposes organisations to a variety of risks. We help clients in gaining confidence over not only the security and integrity of their technology and data, but also how this can be thoughtfully integrated into broader areas such as regulation, environment and reporting. We do this by providing a wide range of technology assurance services, which include responding to specific regulation as well as managing fast-paced emerging technologies such as AI. The work we do helps build more safely connected systems, which are better understood by their users and can be delivered sustainably and securely.

As a Manager in our team, you will help our clients build trust and transparency in technology whilst simultaneously gaining skills to develop a career in a fast-growing professional services organisation. Working with some of the world’s most prestigious organisations you will be an integral part of our Technology Assurance team within EY UK’s Assurance practice.

The opportunity
As a Manager you will have the opportunity to work on a range of IT Assurance projects, including IT external audit support, IT components of regulatory reviews and other assurance activities including Service Organisation Controls Reporting (SOCR) and assessing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system projects, cyber, cloud and emerging technology risks including AI and data. This role involves working across our business, alongside our wider Assurance and Consulting colleagues, and with our clients to help protect their reputation by mitigating their business, financial reporting and IT risks.

It is an exciting opportunity to work with a diverse, multi-skilled and inclusive team while developing your own career.

We are a team with a history and ambition of growth and innovation and have a clear focus on delivering high-quality, multi-disciplinary projects, helping clients solve their most complex technology and data issues. We are team of around 200 professionals in the UK and part of a much larger global organisation.

Your key responsibilities
An important part of your role as a Manager is to establish, maintain and strengthen internal and external relationships. You’ll help create a positive and diverse learning culture and will coach and counsel junior team members to help them develop. In line with our commitment to quality, you'll also have a key role in ensuring exceptional client service, quality and delivery. At the same time as maintaining strong client relationships and delivering high quality outcomes, you will need to deliver engagements to agreed time and cost budgets.
