The exceptional EY experience. It's yours to build.

The opportunity: your next adventure awaits.

The People Advisory Services (PAS) Staff Experiences Program offers candidates like you an opportunity for a completely tailored, independently-driven, and leadership-sponsored career path. As HR and business have evolved, so have our offerings. You will work on projects in a wide range of industries and sectors and provide clients with market leading expertise. The PAS Workforce Advisory practice collaborates with clients to address complex people-related issues and provides support through our core competencies – organizational change management; organizational design and workforce planning; HR transformation; payroll advisory; learning services; workforce management and time and attendance; purpose, culture and leadership; workforce analytics; and transactions. Whether you work in many of these areas or choose to gain expertise in one – your role at EY will be as unique as you are.

In Workforce Advisory, you will master the fundamentals of professional services from a people perspective. You will develop skills by capturing change impacts, developing training, supporting organizational design and transformation, and gauging business readiness. We enable client success by effectively preparing clients for change and driving strategy.

In your first few years you’ll assess complex client challenges, benchmark against competitors, advise on leading practices, and guide clients through implementations, transactions, and transformations.
