Requisition # SEA000W9

Post Date 5 days ago

At
EY Assurance, we build a better working world through innovation, so we can
meet the evolving demands of business, regulators and investors. Through a
quality EY Audit, supported by state-of-the-art technology and the finest
people, we build confidence in business and the capital markets while meeting
regulatory benchmarks, providing greater transparency to investors and the
markets, and evolving the audit to supply more meaningful insights to audit
committees and company boards.

Our auditors ask better questions that drive increased
skepticism around financial information to protect and serve the public
interest. It’s those questions our people ask during an EY audit that help
generate wider economic and social benefits today and a strong legacy for a
better tomorrow.
