The opportunity

EY has the largest consumer insight and experience design practices across the major professional services firms in the region. EY Sweeney was formed when EY acquired one of Australia’s largest consumer and business insight practices (Sweeney Research) in late 2014. As an end to end insights practice within EY we do things differently and work on some of the most challenging and interesting projects around for commercial and government clients.

As the pace of change accelerates for both commercial and government sector clients, the role of insight in driving decision-making and inspiring change has gone up a level. The EY Sweeney team work closely with EY colleagues across a wide range of disciplines with a focus on helping clients transform what they do. We are also behind some of the flagship global pieces of thought leadership produced by the firm.

We are looking for people who are passionate about what they do, ambitious about where they want to head in their career and committed to making a difference for clients.

We’d like people to join in Sydney or Melbourne, although we are open to people with the right skillset and experience applying from other locations across Australia and New Zealand.
