What are we looking for? 

At EY we don’t do ‘cookie cutter’ Consultants, we encourage diversity in our teams. We want creative and ambitious individuals who share our values of sustainability and making a difference to join EY People Advisory Services (PAS) as part of the HR Transformation team.  EY People Advisory Services (PAS) partner with organisations to put humans at the centre of their transformation agenda enabling them to build a better working world.
