Senior Manager - Digital Innovation

The Role
Senior Manager Digital Innovation - Financial Accounting Advisory Services

Within Ernst & Young's Assurance service line, Financial Accounting Advisory Services (FAAS) professionals provide advisory services to a wide range of clients covering a very broad spectrum of services including:

As part of our focus on Digital, technology and innovation, FAAS is focused on deriving insights from financial data that could be the key to unlocking and creating new value.

FAAS analytics tools – a series of tools all focused on different areas including corporate governance, audit support, sustainability, and financial process – may help clients translate data into valuable insights around their financial processes.

Our audit support analytics moves clients toward a “Digital Society,” by using “Robotics Process Automation (RPA)” to streamline processes, reducing both resource costs and operational risk.
