The opportunity: your next adventure awaits
The Ernst & Young Infrastructure Advisors, LLC team provides financial, strategic and commercial advice on large scale infrastructure projects and programs across the United States, with a focus on public sector clients (e.g., state and local agencies, economic development authorities and universities) and innovative capital projects and programs (including public-private partnerships) across multiple sectors, including all modes of transportation, utilities and renewable energy, social infrastructure and urban redevelopment, and other components of the built environment. We’re setting precedent in a rapidly evolving and growing industry, and we’ll need you to drive innovation by helping our clients address challenges and think critically about the way projects are developed and have a long-lasting impact on infrastructure delivery across the country. As an advisor, you’ll be a core, client-facing member of small engagement teams of 3-4 people, making this role ideal for developing your skills and career. With support from your tight-knit team, you’ll have the autonomy to grow and excel, all while working on truly transformational infrastructure projects.
Our work involves the intersection of infrastructure, finance, public policy, technology, urban planning, construction and law, and our dynamic team comes from all of those backgrounds. You’ll be balancing several major assignments for high-profile clients on some of the largest, most exciting infrastructure projects in the country, making every day different. You could be putting together presentation materials, performing financial or other data analysis, participating in calls and/or meetings with clients or working on proposals to win new engagements. As part of that, we’ll need you to be a great multi-tasker and a proactive self-starter, as well as have strong organizational and time management skills.

You are curious and purpose driven. We’re looking for people who see opportunities instead of challenges, who ask better questions to seek better answers that build a better working world.
