Liz Bingham leaves restructuring to become managing partner for people, to drive the firm's people strategy

ERNST & YOUNG hope’s to continue its drive in attracting, developing and retaining talent with the appointment of a managing partner for people.

Liz Bingham (pictured) takes the role having been with the firm morethan 25 years, latterly in its restructuring division.

Bingham said, “I am committed to delivering our ambition to create an inclusive environment in which all our people, regardless of race, gender, sexuality or background, can succeed.

“As part of that commitment, we have submitted our response to the Financial Reporting Council’s consultation on the proposed references to gender diversity in the UK’s corporate governance code.”

A statement from the firm said it had already exceeded the recommendations by Lord Davies’s Women on boards report, which requires 25% of boards to be made up of women.

However, according to the Accountancy Age Top 50+50 survey, just 17% of Ernst & Young partners are women, a marginal growth on the 15% it reported last year.
