The opportunity

ACR assists in the design, implementation and operation of global record-to-report processes. Within this managed services business, we provide two primary services: 1) Bookkeeping – EY serves as the client’s outsourced Finance function, executing end to end Finance processing, globally, across the Record to Report Process and integrated with other upstream and downstream process, such as Statutory Reporting, Tax and Treasury 2) Statutory Accounting and Reporting – as a client’s outsourced service provider, we execute the accounting and reporting required to be compliant in the client’s legal entity footprint. To do this we leverage EY’s global solution approach to process, technology and account management, leveraging our centralized delivery centers and Centers of Excellence, along with our local teams with their deep knowledge of local requirements.

This high growth practice attracts the interest of our largest, most complex clients, as well as mid-market clients looking to focus their Finance resources on other priorities. Our value proposition derives not only from our service excellence in this space, but our ability to work with all other EY services lines to deliver value that goes well beyond the execution work that we do. We operate as advisors to our client’s Finance leaders and play this critical role as their managed services provider.

Mentored by nationally recognized professionals (including the firm’s most senior talent), you’ll be a trusted business advisor by delivering on our promises to our stakeholders - and play a critical role in building a better working world.    Sound interesting?
