  • Motivation to work on regulatory audits within multi-disciplinary teams, especially in the areas of primary financial risks (such as liquidity or credit risk (IRB))

  • Motivation, flexibility and self-drive to constantly learn and acquire new skills and knowledge
  • Fluency in English and German is a pre-requisite, with French as an added advantage

  • Working towards or already completed a relevant professional qualification (e.g., FRM, CFA)


What we offer


  • Team: A young, vibrant and multi-cultural team of highly motivated regulatory audit and consulting professionals
  • Further education and development: At EY, next to continual personal development based on a system of trainings, mentoring, counselling and on-the-job learning, you have the possibility to earn an accredited Masters in Sustainability, an accredited Masters in Business Analytics or an accredited MBA (EY Tech MBA) from the Hult International Business School, free of charge*. Additionally, you can also choose ad-hoc courses in one of our online education partners (e.g., Udemy) and join EY-specific knowledge sharing sessions & trainings or do relevant professional qualifications (e.g., FRM, SCR)
