Strategy at EY

Our team was created to be the leader in strategy with an execution edge, bringing together the collective power of the firm to solve our clients most complex problems and aspirations. We do this in a range of industries as well as topic areas, but common to all our work is a structured and innovative approach to problem solving and engagement at the highest levels of our client organisations.

Role description

As a Manager within our UK & Ireland (non Financial Services) practice, you manage the day-to-day delivery of client projects, developing teams of between 2-5 consultants.

At the Manager level, you will begin taking responsibility for developing the recommendations that will ultimately be implemented by our clients, whilst also learning how to contribute to and grow EY’s business. You will also get the chance to experience adjacent areas of work enabled by EY’s broad capability – such as innovation strategy, new ventures, technology, customer, and program management.

Key responsibilities

As a Manager in the EY Strategy team, you will be a reliable leader driving all aspects of client project delivery. You will have the opportunity to use your experience, creativity and analytical skills to help find solutions to our clients’ problems. You will bring the best of EY to our clients by showing professionalism, responsiveness, teaming effectively with your colleagues, building internal and external networks, and ensuring quality in all your work. Beyond client projects, you will also have the chance to contribute to new Business Development across sectors. We are actively developing and growing our Strategy practice and you will be encouraged to join one of our many communities helping build our offers, thought leadership, training and learning, and people strategy.
