Big Four firm EY has announced a wave of promotions across its global operations. While the bulk of the Partner roles were handed to assurance and tax operations, EY’s consulting wing accounted for a quarter of the promotions.

There are more than 270,000 EY professionals in over 150 countries around the world. Earlier in the year, the firm was named one of the UK's top consulting companies to work for by the Sunday Times; EY’s growth rate, meanwhile, is currently outpacing the rest of the UK consulting industry.

Globally the firm is growing strongly too, and as a result EY has sought to reward its staff’s hard work. 733 people have been promoted to Partner across the globe, with women and emerging markets representing nearly a third of this year's new Partner class at 30% and 33%, respectively. EY has been working consistently to improve the number of women in the upper echelons of its structure as a way to address its gender pay gap.
