EY's Transaction Advisory Services (TAS) practice offers companies professional transaction experience. We help clients determine the right deal to do, and then assist them in doing the deal right.

Our team works to understand profit drivers and trends, challenge assumptions of future performance, and assist with purchase agreements and post-closing transaction matters.

We currently have a career opportunity for a Manager in Transaction Support in our Toronto office.

Transaction Support provides clients with the financial and strategic transaction assistance to ensure the success of their transaction.
