The Chemicals & Advanced Materials (C&AM) Industry Sector at EY provides a rewarding career opportunity, targeted towards becoming a professional in complex business, technology and infrastructure transformation, not simply being a generalist across industries.

Our clients are seeking a new type of transformation expert – one who provides strategic guidance but is also deeply embedded in the delivery and success of their programs. Traditional suppliers, such as strategy houses, systems integrators, and engineering project management consultants cannot provide the complete service our clients now demand.

integrated into our core offerings, and this exemplifies our unique viewpoint over traditional
program management. We also offer services that focus on 'bridging the gap' between Execution and Strategy primarily by designing and implementing frameworks and solutions that allow companies to make data-driven decisions to optimize and manage portfolios and programs/projects. With digital transformations being a focus of EY, we have incorporated technology into our processes, automating manual work and enabling us to provide greater insights and value to our clients.
