  • Play a role in business plan initiatives (e.g. key accounts, recruitment, client service framework) and new business opportunities by building client relationships and demonstrating knowledge of client business 
  • Understand the capabilities of the firm and look for opportunities to sell additional services to our clients

 

Skills and attributes for success 

 

  • Experience in a Transaction Diligence role within a Consulting environment, working independently and with senior stakeholders on multiple engagements 
  • Be an excellent communicator, both oral and written 
  • Strong poject management skills 
  • Be an effective time manager and leader, able to keep calm when under pressure to meet deadlines 
  • Be a team player with the ability to build effective relationships at all levels

 

Ideally, you’ll also have 

 

  • A bachelors or master’s degree in accounting, business, finance or economics 
  • Member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants, or international equivalent 
  • A strong work ethic and the ability to adapt to new challenges and ideas in a collaborative team environment 

 

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.

 

We hold a collective commitment to foster an environment where all differences are valued and respected, practices are equitable and everyone experiences a sense of belonging. If you require any adjustments to the recruitment process in order to equitably participate, we encourage you to advise us at the time of application via contactrecruitment@au.ey.com or phone +61 3 8650 7788 (option 1).
