The Covid-19 pandemic is creating seismic challenges around the world. Our purpose, to build a better working world, has never been more important. Life at EY has been transformed dramatically but our strong culture of flexible and remote working has helped EY people navigate new ways of working and remain connected with each other and our clients.


A better working world truly starts with the people at EY who are building it every day. Whilst our recruitment activity has slowed, we are always interested in connecting with talented people from diverse backgrounds to consider for future opportunities that may arise within our People Advisory Services team.


The opportunity

Our People Advisory Services practice continues to grow and we are always interested in speaking with talented individuals with backgrounds covering Reward and Remuneration to consider for future opportunities.


EY’s People Advisory Services (PAS) believes a better working world is helping our clients harness their people agenda — the right people, with the right capabilities, in the right place, for the right cost. Our professionals focus on strategic talent initiatives connected to Transformations, Mobile Talent, Transactions & Workforce Enablement with companies of all sizes, life cycles, and complexities.
