Job description
At EY, you’ll have the chance to build a career as unique as you are, with the global scale, support, inclusive culture and technology to become the best version of you. And we’re counting on your unique voice and perspective to help EY become even better, too. Join us and build an exceptional experience for yourself, and a better working world for all.  


Despite the best efforts of regulators, internal controls and risk departments, corruption and corporate fraud continue to challenge businesses and governments across the globe. Society’s growing expectations in relation to Business Conduct and Ethics, coupled with the increased transparency afforded by technology, pose an ever-evolving challenge to all business leaders. Our fast-growing Belfast Business Conduct and Ethics (BC&E) Hub helps our clients to meet this challenge, by delivering innovative, large-scale technology driven solutions.


The opportunity
The BC&E Hub is a growing part of our Forensic & Integrity Services (Forensics) business. As Manager in the Hub, you’ll play a key role in this growth. You will develop and oversee a team implementing innovative solutions to challenging ethics and compliance issues across a range of industries and geographies. Working with some of our largest clients and with access to the wide array of resources and support provided by EY, this a great place to develop your BC&E knowledge and your people and client management skills. 


Your key responsibilities
You’ll work with our clients’ compliance and internal audit departments to deliver complex programmes and develop practical solutions that address operational challenges across a variety of risk areas, including bribery and corruption, sanctions, human rights, sustainability, reputational risk and fraud.


Because all clients have unique issues, no two projects look the same. However, the type of work you oversee as a Manager in our Hub may include:

  • Risk assessments, including third party questionnaires, screening, and anti-bribery and corruption background checks on third parties that our clients are working with across the globe.
  • Review of financial transactions to determine if they are compliant with our clients’ policies, procedures and best practices.
  • Oversight of a growing monitoring team that leverages data analytics and technology to provide our clients with  insights that they value.
  • Country risk reviews to determine the macro-economic environment, financial crime risks and political risks associated with a particular market.
  • Ad-hoc requests for investigative due diligence in a wide range of contexts including pre-acquisition, in relation to ongoing or contemplated litigation, and in support of asset tracing and recovery.


Your key responsibilities will include:

  • Display an understanding of client needs, priorities and anticipate related challenges.
  • Identify and resolve issues on your engagements demonstrating a broad technical and people skillset.
  • Ensure high quality working papers and analysis by team members.
  • Prepare client deliverables including forensic and investigation reports, and present findings to clients.
  • Liaise with senior client personnel, in-house counsel, external legal teams, witnesses and regulators.
  • Coach team members, contribute to the knowledge sharing culture of the team, and hold difficult conversations.
  • Effectively balance your personal commitments with your professional needs.
  • Engage and participate in Sales and Marketing efforts including building the profile of the practice and firm in internal as well as external events.
  • Keep abreast of regulatory, business, and economic developments and their impact on the solutions of EY Forensics.
  • Meet mandatory compliance, learning and other professional requirements.


Skills and attributes for success

  • Attention to detail, whether performing project management functions to support our quality agenda or working with our teams to perform risk assessments or review transaction details.
  • Proven ability to use technology and analytics to solve business problems and deliver insights.
  • A capacity to demonstrate empathy, vulnerability, and trust.
  • Self-awareness, respect for differences in individual style and background of your team members.
  • Effective time management skills and the ability to prioritise competing deadlines and commitments.
  • Knowledge of current and emerging regulatory environments including relevant bribery and corruption legislation and enforcement actions and emerging legislation such as UK Corporate Reform.


To qualify for the role you must have

  • A minimum of 5 years of work experience
  • Evidence of technical experience in integrity due diligence, business/corporate intelligence or compliance reviews/audits
  • Experience of coaching and supervising junior team members, including reviewing technical and written work
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills, including presenting and report writing in English


Ideally, you’ll also have

  • Professional qualifications relating to fraud, anti-money laundering or accountancy 
  • Foreign language skills
  • Market facing experience with key client management
  • Experience of understanding, digesting, explaining and analysing financial information


What we look for
We’re interested in Managers with a genuine creative vision and the confidence to make it happen. You can expect plenty of autonomy in this role, so you’ll also need the ability to take initiative and seek out opportunities to improve our current relationships and processes.
