Engagement: we’ll involve you in our business – and in the wider community
By being a part of Ernst & Young you will have the satisfaction of feeling part of an organization with global influence and capabilities that can have a powerful impact on businesses and communities.
It’s not just about the name on your CV. You’ll gain confidence from having the support you need to achieve your professional and personal aspirations.
We do this through:
- Communities: from our Corporate Responsibility work to our Alumni network we give you more opportunities to get involved with local communities and form enduring bonds with your peers.
- Conversations: we’ll listen to you and engage in open and authentic dialogue at every level of our organization.
- Choices: we believe that people perform best when they feel connected and empowered to make their own choices within an organization. Ernst & Young has earned a reputation for having a culture that enables people to meet both their personal and professional goals. More than work/life balance, our efforts to create a supportive culture have grown to focus on workplace flexibility: helping our people navigate where, when, and how their work gets done.

We make a difference
If you join Ernst & Young, you’ll feel welcome from your first day until long after you leave. But there are lots of opportunities to enhance your sense of belonging here.
That’s because we take community leadership seriously. 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 connects your unique skills and capabilities. This ensures you are able to 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.
