Senior/Manager, Sweeney - Melbourne


In 2014, Sweeney Research joined EY (Ernst & Young) to become EY Sweeney. It was a major milestone in the 40+ year history of the business, as it saw one of Australia's largest market research companies become part of one of the fastest growing Advisory firms.

EY Sweeney is a fully integrated part of the EY Advisory business, offering a full range of research and strategy planning services. We have the same client centric, outcome driven approach we've always had, overlaid with the ability to draw on the global expertise of EY. It's a powerful proposition that further enhances our ability to deliver the insights, strategies and solutions that will make a difference to the success of our clients.

The standing brief to all of the EY Sweeney staff is 'How can we do things better?'. We recognise that the success of our clients is dependent on the quality and calibre of the research that informs and inspires their decision making. To deliver great research that will make a difference ultimately requires great thinkers, and we believe we have some of the best around.
