Job description

Requisition ID:  1428623

As a global leader in assurance, tax, transaction and advisory services, we hire and develop the most passionate people in their field to help build a better working world. This starts with a culture that believes in giving you the training, opportunities and creative freedom to make things better. This is what makes us different, and renders working here a unique, lifetime experience. 


When you join our Tax department, you'll help local and global clients navigate the complex, ever-changing world of International Tax. You’ll be working closely with colleagues across borders, using EY tools and networks to solve complex business and tax problems.


At EY you can expand your skills and learn about all aspects of tax. We’ll provide the global scale, personal support, inclusive culture and technology to help you grow, lead and learn.


Global Operations is our specialty practice that manages our Global Compliance & Reporting (GCR) outsourcing engagements. The team is based in Brussels (primarily Diegem office, alternated with working remotely) and is supported by a dedicated team in EY’s Global Delivery Services centre based in India. In Diegem, our Global Compliance & Reporting practice consists of a team of 15 people, with a hands-on mentality, a positive attitude, a good sense of humor and a focus on achieving our objectives as a team.


The opportunity - What future are you building towards?

We provide end-to-end compliance management across multiple countries on behalf of our clients, ranging from bookkeeping to statutory reporting to tax reporting and filing. These clients are multinational companies with (regional) headquarters in Belgium. Working together with the client and different EY specialist teams, we identify process improvements and technology solutions to make their compliance processes more efficient and provide more insight into their overall compliance and tax position. We put them in control of their compliance with an efficient coordination and delivery model. We manage their global compliance footprint so they don’t have to.


As a project manager in the Global Operations’ team you will be client facing from day one. This means you will be immediately introduced to multiple clients and trained to coordinate your own projects. The goal is to manage these accounts independently in the long run. It’s a dynamic role with a lot of responsibilities.


Responsibilities - How can you make a lasting impact in a rapidly changing world?

  • Liaise with global EY colleagues involved in the client's compliance and/or reporting processes.
  • Coordinating compliance processes, monitoring deadlines and identifying bottlenecks.
  • Acting as single point of contact for your client in day-to-day service delivery.
  • Managing and coordinating with our Global Delivery Services team in India.
  • Assisting with the transition of compliance work to EY when we win new assignments – developing and following detailed transition plans, working with client teams to facilitate and monitor smooth handovers.
  • Setting up supporting technology solutions, such as workflow tools and reporting dashboards.
  • Strong organizational skills – being able to manage a variety of tasks simultaneously and having the ability to prioritize and meet multiple deadlines.
  • Be a team player – we need someone who is outgoing and hands-on with  good communications skills and whois committed and keen to build new relationships within EY’s GCR network.


Job requirements - Where do you start if you want to change the world?

  • You have a Bachelors and/or Master’s degree (if this would be in Finance, Accounting or Tax this is a plus!)
  • You have an interest in project management and strong organizational skills
  • You enjoy working in a process driven finance, accounting, tax and compliance environment.
  • You have preferably 2 years of experience in a project management role
  • You have strong Dutch or French and English language capabilities – both written and verbal communication.
  • You have good skills with Microsoft Office, especially Excel and Powerpoint
  • You are interested in automation, technology and tools
  • …and knowledge of Power BI is a plus. 

What we offer - Is everything that counts being counted?


•    Attractive remuneration package - We offer an attractive remuneration package; including a company car and fuel card, iPhone plus subscription, health insurance, pension plan, meal vouchers and eco vouchers. We offer a flexible package to our people that gives them the power to choose what they value most; extra days off, leasing an electric bike, etc.
•    Flexible working arrangements - We are proud of our flexible working arrangements. We will actively support you in building a successful career and delivering excellent client service without sacrificing your personal priorities. We offer flexible working hours and working from home multiple days per week is possible. 
•    Inspiring work environment - At EY we are dedicated to providing you with an inspiring work environment. A work environment which allows you to further develop your skills and enables you to fulfill your true potential.

•    Fun - By joining our EY- teams, you can participate in team activities, family days, summer and winter events, sports events and enjoy a drink during our monthly Thirsty Thursday happy hour.
•    Sustainability – we have a fleet of hybrid and electric cars. Our flex plan makes it possible for people that don’t want a company car to choose a more sustainable option. In the future we’ll move to a brand new office “The Wings”, a smart and energy efficient infrastructure which will allow us to reduce our ecological footprint even more. 
•    Diversity & inclusion - At EY we are passionate about the inclusion and support of individuals of all groups; we do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or disability status.
•    Location: all of our offices are easily accessible by public transport or by car and have parking space
