The opportunity

EY New Zealand have just launched a new and dedicated New Zealand Financial Services Organisation (FSO), to provide our local banking, wealth and asset and insurance clients with deep industry knowledge, skills, and experience to help them manage some of their most complex challenges. By being a part of a newly established practice, there's no better time than now to join our team, and to be a part of something new!


Due to the dynamically growing demand for specialist consulting, we currently have Manager positions available for individuals who are passionate about financial services and building a better working world.

You will work alongside a team of equally passionate financial services specialists, many of whom with extensive international experience, and enjoy high-quality coaching and mentoring to help grow and accelerate your career in a fast-growing team – allowing you to make your mark, here at EY New Zealand!

Our Internal Audit team falls under Business Consulting, which mainly incorporates the Financial Services Risk, Business Transformation, Finance and Strategy and Customer & Operations competencies, and focuses on transforming our clients’ business on both a strategic and operational level to sustainably deliver long-term value. 


It is tightly integrated with our Technology Consulting and People Advisory practices, forming high-performing interdisciplinary engagement teams. Further leveraging the insights and delivery excellence brought by our global network of professionals, we bring holistic transformational insights and skills to the most significant New Zealand financial institutions.

  • You will undertake key activities that include developing internal audit strategies and plans, understanding processes, performing data analytics, performing internal control testing, and preparing reports that outline detailed findings and recommendations;
  • You will assess our client’s current state processes and controls, whilst identifying opportunities to mitigate risk, as well as utilising risk and control frameworks, governance processes and reporting and analysis;
  • Manage your own and/or team performance to achieve a high standard of client service.

To qualify for the role, you must have:  

  • 5+ years’ experience in financial services, either within a consulting firm or major financial institution, as an Internal Auditor or a Risk Management professional;
  • Ability to contribute to high quality deliverables which provide relevant insights, underpinned by strong attention to detail, and the capability to write clear and compelling reports and proposals;
  • Proven understanding of risk-based auditing methodologies, and the ability to apply a structured approach to project management;
  • Ability to effectively communicate and develop relationships with a wide range of internal and external stakeholders across all levels;
  • Degree in Finance, Commerce, Law, Technology, Data Science or similar;
  • Excellent communication skills (written and verbal).


Ideally, you’ll also have

  • Intrinsic self-motivation skills combined with a positive attitude and drive;
  • The ability to be agile, flexible and adapt to rapidly changing business and client requirements;
  • A consulting mind-set, comfortable navigating through periods of ambiguity and change.


What we offer

  • Success as defined by you: We’ll provide the tools and flexibility, so you can make a meaningful impact, your way. 
  • Continuous learning: personalised career development including coaching, experiences and formal learning so you’ll develop the mindset and skills you’ll need to thrive in the future.
  • Diverse and inclusive culture: You’ll be embraced for who you are and empowered to use your voice to help others find theirs. 


At EY, you’ll be rewarded and recognised based on your performance and our comprehensive benefits package can be tailored to your individual needs.
