"Five years ago the capital of Lower Silesia won the competition from among 40 European and North African cities and now is the center of EY Global Delivery Services. I'm glad I can announce the good news. We are expanding EY’s activities through the creation of competence centers. They will provide services to EY global clients and EY project teams working for our international clients.  Creating these centers in Poland proves that we have highly qualified personnel with wide competencies and a global outlook. Polish analysts provide services in Berlin, London, Dubai or New York, working hand in hand with experts from all over the world", says Jacek Kędzior, Managing Partner of EY Poland.


The new teams will be a part of EY Global Delivery Services (GDS) which is a separate structure from EY Poland and provides services to local and international clients.

Poland as a part of a global network

GDS supports all regions, business lines, industries and EY competencies. It plays an important role in EY's global strategy. There are 10 centers in 5 countries: India, China, Poland, Argentina and Philippines. They employ over 18 thousand people who support project teams or co-operate directly with EY clients.

"We can grow due to the potential and energy of our people, their openness to innovation and new challenges. But we do not rest on our laurels and this is why we are employing new people. We are looking for financial professionals, software developers, exact science graduates, but also humanists and artists. We plan further increase of employment and with the current pace we have now we should double the number of employees. And one more thing - not everybody has to speak Polish, so foreigners also can join us", says Dariusz Sus, Director of EY GDS Poland.


"At present we are looking mainly for managers of IT projects related to M&A transactions. Their role will be to provide IT support for transaction processes to global EY clients. We are also looking for Java developers who will support international implementation of Guidewire tool used by EY Business Advisory", he adds.
