Put your expertise to the test by diving into integrated reports, sustainability reports and carbon footprints. Join our team and become a driving force behind the new standard of sustainability!

The opportunity - What future are you building towards?

Today, societies demand greater responsibility from the organizations that they work for, buy from, and invest in. Organizations that effectively anchor their approach to long-term value with an authentic purpose are best positioned to measure, to demonstrate and to benefit from the value they create.

In response to this, we are looking for high-performing, innovative and enthusiastic candidates to join our growing team of individuals intent on helping clients to identify, measure and report on the non-financial performance metrics which are most relevant to their businesses.

This role will place you at the heart of a high-energy, agile EY Climate Change and Sustainability Services team that is committed to helping clients build long-term value. This opportunity will enable you to work with leading organisations at a senior level and interact with EY colleagues globally and across service lines.

Recruitment procedure – How can you prepare for a long life together?

In our hiring process, we want to ensure a thorough evaluation of your qualifications. It starts with a review of your CV by our Hiring Manager, followed by an introductory call with our Recruiter to discuss your experience and expectations. You will then be asked to complete an online assessment to assess your skills and personality. If successful, you will be invited for a first interview with our Recruiter and a team member. Upon successfully completing the first interview, you will have a second interview with our Partners. If all goes well, we will extend a formal offer to you.

Pre-employment screening
Due to laws and regulations, and because EY (and in some cases its clients) has high demands on the reliability and integrity of its employees, every new employee will be screened. Depending on your rank the pre employment screening could contain the following: Certificate of Conduct (in Dutch: VOG) or - if requesting a Dutch VOG is not possible - Criminal Background Check of the country you are currently living or have lived during the last five years, integrity questionnaire, verification of ID, diploma’s and/or work experience and consultation of the Dutch insolvency registry.
