We make a difference
If you join EY, you’ll feel welcome throughout your time with us. There are many ways in which you can also enhance your sense of belonging here.
That’s because we take community leadership seriously; our support for the United Nations Global Compact and Transparency International are just two examples. And we rely on the enthusiasm and skills of our people to cement our place in each community we’re a part of.
You’ve found the right place if you want to make a difference outside of your professional role. Our approach to corporate responsibility coordinates volunteering activities — in education, entrepreneurship and environmental sustainability — in a way that makes real use of your unique skills and capabilities. That way, you can have a far greater personal impact.
Community engagement is also a key part of our global career development framework.
You’ll have the opportunity to develop in new and different contexts. You might be improving your public speaking, sharpening your negotiating skills or collaborating with people from a variety of backgrounds. But at the same time, you’ll be helping the community and building career-enhancing skills.

Rewards and benefits
In exchange for meeting challenges and consistently high performance, you deserve to be rewarded for your contribution to Ernst & Young's success.
You'll have access to a great range of benefits including:
Career break* You can apply for a three-month career break to take time away from work to go travel or explore other personal interests.**

Employee Assistance Program. You and members of your immediate family can access independent, confidential counselling, free of charge, from professionally qualified counsellors should you need advice on personal, family or work-related concerns.

Social Club. The EY Social Club organises a range of activities, from sporting events to informal and formal social functions, including – in most offices – an annual ball.
Childcare. We have a range of support processes and material to assist you in managing the juggling act between work and life. This includes emergency childcare support, providing easy access to information on childcare facilities; childcare fees, including government assistance and rebates; and access to our purpose-built childcare centre (Sydney based employees).

The Global Employee Referral Program provides you with a cash reward or shopping voucher if you successfully refer a candidate to the firm.
