If you like working with others, and like problem solving then its definitely worth considering. Do you ever look at a bridge/skyscraper etc. and wonder how they did that?

Claire, Analytics Team

Claire isn’t the obvious disruptive type. She studied maths in Trinity before joining our Analytics team, here in EY. She’s not the type to burst into an operating theatre and start asking the surgeons who their favourite Friends’ character is. She’s not disruptive in the way a little brother can be disruptive. However the work she’s doing is disrupting, and improving how we all approach doing business.
