eDiscovery Associate - Forensic & Integrity Services - Belfast

The opportunity

EY's Forensic Technology & Discovery Services (FTDS) team forms part of the Fraud Investigation & Dispute Services (FIDS) business unit and specialises in forensic technology services encompassing eDiscovery, Forensic Data Analytics and IT Forensic investigations. Using state of the art tools, our teams support clients with compliance management, fraud investigation and fraud detection.

Across all sectors, clients are faced with a rising tide of disputes, investigations and regulatory reviews. Handling the electronically stored information (ESI) relevant to such reviews in a consistent, defensible, and cost effective way has therefore become a key business challenge.

The eDiscovery team specialise in identifying, collecting and producing large volumes of ESI in the form of emails, documents, databases, audio/video files, social media, web sites and more, on behalf of our clients. This is secured and analysed to separate the relevant data for use as evidence for litigations and financial investigations.

Our FTDS team within the Belfast Delivery Centre provide the cutting edge forensic technology infrastructure and tools necessary to manipulate and manage large volumes of ESI and assist in uncovering the most complex frauds close to the occurrence.
