Global Immigration Consultant - People Advisory Services, Melbourne


As the world continues to be impacted by globalization, shifting demographics, digital technology, innovation and regulation, organizations must adapt quickly and foster agile people environments that respond to these disruptive forces. EY’s People Advisory Services (PAS) believes a better working world is helping our clients harness their people agenda — the right people, with the right capabilities, in the right place, for the right cost, doing the right things. By focusing on our client’s talent needs, we are able to provide exciting and innovative solutions for the workforce of the future, which is already here! If you believe that collective purpose, innovation, and empathy are key digital global leadership needs to be successful, then EY is the right place to explore further.

We work globally and collaborate to bring you professional teams to address complex issues relating to organization transformation, end-to-end employee life cycles, effective talent deployment and mobility, gaining value from evolving and virtual work forces, and the changing role of HR in support of business strategy. As a member of PAS, you will be part of a supportive global team with a vast array of experiences, broad network, deep sector expertise and entrepreneurial spirit not always evident in a large organization. So whenever you join, however long you stay, the exceptional EY experience lasts a lifetime.

The better the question. The better the answer. The better the world works.
