Drawing on everyone’s strengths

Diverse viewpoints lead to better answers. And the global workforce is becoming ever-more diverse.

As an organization with a presence worldwide, we encourage respect, integrity and teamwork in the way we work. You’ll be encouraged to think in global terms, build strong relationships and embrace diversity in all its forms.

By valuing the differences in those you work alongside you’ll find that you improve your perspective and, ultimately, provide better answers for your clients and communities.

You’ll be inspired to achieve your aims, both professionally and personally, while making a difference to our clients and in our communities.

We’ll work together to help ensure your career takes you in a direction where you’ll be able to reach your goals. It’s about making sure you do interesting work with exciting clients, while also providing access to appropriate training, coaching and support.

We’ll involve you in our business – and in the wider community

At EY we have a strong commitment to involvement and teamwork. It’s important you feel part of our wider organization and feel at first hand the powerful impact we’re able to have on businesses and communities.

This sense of involvement stretches a long way beyond the formal work you’ll add to your CV/resumé. It’s about the bonds that you form with your colleagues, the support you give to our corporate responsibility activities and the way you contribute to our ongoing discussions within the organization.

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.

Corporate responsibility

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.

As part of our commitment to sustainable growth and building a better working world, we place a strong focus on sponsoring educational programs, harnessing women’s economic potential and fostering entrepreneurship. 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.

Your rewards and recognition

Your EY package is designed to recognise and reward your performance, to keep you motivated and to give you the support you need to explore and use your strengths at work.

As you’d expect, you’ll get a competitive salary. You’ll also receive a range of benefits which you can choose and tailor through our flexible benefits scheme. But don’t just focus on the tangible things – remember all the training and development you’ll receive, and the happiness you’ll get from working in the way that suits you best.
