About the job
EY's Financial Services practice is currently undergoing exciting change. The business is rapidly growing and we are expanding our risk and regulatory skills in our Extended Assurance team. This growth offers great opportunities for learning and progression.
Extended Assurance is part of our Financial Services Assurance practice to provide ongoing assurance to regulators, management and directors on the execution, governance and controls around processes that do not impact the financial statements.
Current turbulent markets are driving significant changes to all firms' internal processes, e.g., through regulatory reporting or demands for better or new management information. The processes require a broader set of controls than those traditionally used for Financial Statement reporting, including the requirement to address a wider suite of risks.
EY Luxembourg's Financial Services Extended Assurance team works with clients to provide assurance that an organisation's business activities are operating effectively in addressing these challenges. This is done through the appropriate use of assurance skills, robust audit and other methodologies coupled with industry insight in the Financial Services market.
