The first Polish shared services centre for EY was established in 2011 in Wrocław and has just celebrated its 5th anniversary. Nowadays, EY Global Delivery Services provides accounting, financial, creative and HR services, virtual assistants support, procurement and risk management, as well as IT support ang knowledge and project management for EY companies from over 30 countries.

New teams in Wrocław and Warsaw will be operating within EY Global Delivery Services (GDS), a structure separate from EY Poland. EY Poland hires over 1,800 employees dealing with audit, tax, business and transaction advisory. The company has offices in Warsaw, Gdańsk, Katowice, Kraków, Łódź, Poznań and Wrocław.

In the beginning of its activity, EY GDS Poland planned to employ only 250 experts, however after 5 years of operating in Poland, the number of employees was increased to 600 people. While a year ago there were five competence areas of activity in the centre, now there are thirteen of them.

It is thanks to the potential and energy of our people, openness to innovation and new challenges that we are able to develop further. We do not rest on our laurels and increase the number of our staff. We recruit finance and IT experts, scientific minds, but also artists and humanities graduates. We plan to employ even more people – while maintaining current dynamics, we aim at doubling the figures. What is interesting, not all of our employees need to speak Polish, and this is why a lot of foreigners decide to join our teams – says Dariusz Sus, head of EY GDS Poland. – Currently, we are looking for IT Project Managers in transaction advisory, who specialise in IT support for EY global clients, alongside Java developers, who will implement our Guidewire tool designed for business advisory – he adds. 

Global Delivery Services (GDS) are shared services centres cooperating with EY employees EY consulting company external clients from all over the world. GDS supports all regions, lines of business, sectors and competences within EY, while playing a significant part in realising global EY strategy. At the moment, there are five such centres in ten countries: India, China, Poland, Argentina and the Philippines. 18,000 employees ensure proper support of project teams or cooperate directly with external global clients of EY. 

As you can see, EY GDS Poland is open to hiring foreigners. Give it a shot either in beautiful Wrocław or Warsaw!
