Name: Jess Murray

Company: EY

Position: Senior Technology Consultant

  1. Tell me about you and your role?

I’m Jess, I have been working as a Technology Consultant in EY for two years now, after completing a BComm from UCD and an MSc Management Consultancy from UCD Smurfit Business School. My current client is a National Utilities company, and I have been working as a Business Analyst on a National-scale project comprising of a team of over 200 people. My day-to-day role involves functional/non-functional requirement writing, detailed and high level design, business process design and working with tech SMEs to develop tech solutions – to name a few!

  • Tell me about your career path so far?

Upon completion of my Masters, I went straight into the EY Consulting graduate programme. This programme is 2 years long, and I have really enjoyed being a part of a large intake who are all at similar levels. I was lucky enough to experience 6 months in the office before WFH, and have found it interesting to see how such a big firm has seamlessly transitioned to remote working. Something I value about EY is the importance they place on continual L&D – I have completed 3 external qualifications and 3 internal badges in my two years, as well as attended mandatory graduate trainings. I am now about to complete the grad programme and progress to a Senior Technology Consultant, where I am looking forward to taking on more responsibility and learning more!

  • What do you like about working in tech?

My favourite thing about working in tech is that the industry is constantly evolving and there is always something new to learn! I like how I now understand more big tech news stories, and it is interesting to see how work I do impacts people I know.

  • Share 1 insight for someone looking to enter the tech industry?

I would tell someone that is interested in joining the tech industry not to be intimidated by those who are more ‘technical’ than you are. I have no tech background and limited technical expertise but am still thoroughly enjoying working and learning in the field!
