What is Business Transformation at EY?

The world of business is constantly changing. For our clients, this can create better ways of doing things but it might also involve more risks. In Business Transformation, we focus on imaging, designing, leading and delivering end-to-end transformations for our clients.

This programme starts in January 2021.

What will you be doing?

  • Working with a variety of clients from start ups to recognisable financial services organisations
  • Listening to client problems and defining strategies and solutions

  • Analysing trends in industries like banking, insurance or telecommunications, media and technology
  • You’ll also be expected to be flexible and spend large proportions of your time away from your office.

How’s it structured?

After induction, you’ll join your team in UK & Ireland (UK&I) and jump straight into work on real client projects.

The programme lasts two years and will provide you with a variety of experiences and learning opportunities to support your development. On the job we'll help you develop the skills to decipher how each client problem is different and to find innovative ways of solving them. You'll be part of a large graduate community which is a great opportunity to build your network, participate in corporate sustainability events and develop your leadership skills.

In UK&I, our clients span government and public services, energy, retail and telecommunications and media and technology.

You will have the option of studying for a CIMA qualification in Business Accounting in your first year and throughout the programme you'll have access to training and development resources as well as support from colleagues within your team. Since no two projects will be the same, we’ll coach and mentor you in a way that will prepare you for anything.

By the time you finish, you can expect to be well on your way to becoming a Senior Consultant with the opportunity to build a specialism in your preferred area.

What type of work will I be doing?

As a graduate in Belfast you will have the opportunity to work in our Business Transformation competency.

Business Transformation is a multidisciplinary competency, bringing together our capabilities in transformation architecture, experience design, business design and transformation execution to problem-solve, design and deliver large scale, multi-year, multi-stakeholder transformation programmes.



As a professional services firm, we help organisations make better decision about business, finance and technology. In a fast-changing world, it’s an exciting place to be.
