In IT Audit you will work with various teams from different areas of EY which will also enable you to grow your network.

Secondly, ITRA provide advice to EY’s clients on how best to manage their IT risks. They do this in a number of different ways such as providing them with a current state analysis, frameworks, roadmaps or advising them on which IT controls should be a priority and how these should be implemented.
