  • Responsibilities

    EY’s Advisory Consultant Program (ACP) is a great way to start your professional journey if you are interested in a career as a consultant. As part of the ACP, the Risk Advisor Program (RAP) is a 2-3 year development program providing participants with opportunities to serve diverse clients while being provided learning, experiences, and coaching to develop core risk consulting skills. Once you have completed the RAP, you will have acquired a strong risk assessment and risk management foundation for future success.

    What to expect

    At EY we are dedicated to helping our clients evaluate, understand and address compliance, financial, operational, IT and strategic risks – and that’s where our RAP excels. As a part of the Risk team, you will work hand-in-hand with senior team members to help clients improve their business performance through establishing and maintaining an effective risk and control environment. This involves assessing risks in either an advisory or audit context – both of which enable you to develop an in-depth understanding of a company’s business and IT processes, risks and controls.

    We focus on a variety of industries including but not limited to: automotive, government and public sector, consumer products, media and entertainment, oil and gas, power and utilities, and technology clients. Additionally, we have built a dominant position and focus on financial services through our Financial Services Organization (FSO). Candidates electing to join the FSO will focus exclusively in financial services and will have opportunities to serve leading investment banks, retail and commercial banks, insurers and investment managers. Whether you choose to join the FSO or pursue a broader industry focus, you will gain foundational skills for a long career.
