Ernst & Young

This is a Full-time position in Chicago, IL posted November 23, 2021.

The opportunity  

Our Financial Accounting Advisory Services (FAAS) team is growing exponentially, and as a Senior in our Technical Accounting Advisory Group (TAAG) group, you will play a key role in that growth.

Working across all industries, you’ll develop your career by communicating creative, strategic goals both internally and externally.

It’s all about listening to and understanding our clients to give them a truly exceptional experience in a field where there really are no off-the-shelf recommendations.  

As part of our Technical Accounting Advisory Group, you will help companies manage the complex financial and accounting issues relating to consolidation and joint ventures, IPOs, business combinations, compensation, revenue recognition, derivatives and hedging, debt vs.

This is a truly unique opportunity to learn technical accounting at a faster rate and deeper level.  

Your key responsibilities  

The nature of this role means no two projects will be the same.

That means you’ll need to think on your feet and challenge existing practices to develop answers to complex issues.

You’ll also be collaborating with colleagues across multiple service lines, so we’ll look to you to build relationships and identify opportunities for our clients to benefit from our knowledge in other areas.

Occasional travel may be necessary as you will be meeting with key clients, some of whom are the most respected in their fields.

To qualify for the role you must have 

  • A bachelor’s degree, CPA certification and 2 to 5 years’ work experience, preferably as an auditor in a public accounting firm 
  • Strong technical writing and presentation skills
