EY Global Vice Chair – Talent
Maybe you pick your kids up from school in the afternoon, or like to work out in the morning. Perhaps you play in a band, are training for a marathon or taking dancing lessons. Your life is rich, vibrant and complex and we want to support that by supporting you to work, connect and collaborate more easily.
Whether your colleagues are on a different floor, or on a different country, we help you get your work done responsibly and flexibly while managing your multifaceted life.
Testimonial: William Gilmour, Senior, EY Advisory
I am so grateful that EY supports me to pursue both my professional and sporting careers. By having the freedom to flex my hours around training and travel commitments, I have the opportunity to play hockey at a national level, whilst also working on major projects with EY clients.
International experiences are the surest way to build a global mindset – a crucial attribute for working effectively with colleagues and clients from different countries, cultures and backgrounds. We’ll give you unique opportunities to develop yours, whether you’re working abroad, traveling internationally or working virtually from your home office with colleagues and clients from other countries.
Challenge your comfort zone by changing your time zone
Being part of a global organization offers many opportunities for cross-border experiences. One example is traveling for business internationally, from a single trip to regular travel on a long-term engagement. Whether for a few days, weeks or more, working across borders provides you with valuable professional development and collaborative opportunities.
One of the most powerful experiences EY offers its people is the opportunity to work across cultures and borders. Our global Mobility4U program offers a single point of access for developmental and experiential mobility, giving you the opportunity to work across geographies and service lines – and broaden your global mindset and network.
Despite the challenges COVID-19 has presented, EY is seeing an increase to new assignments over the last several months. Historically EY has managed close to 3,000 assignments globally per year.
In FY21, EY managed:
- 100 different home countries and
- 94 different host countries
Which total 738 unique country combinations.
Changing the way we work
We believe that you’ll be at your best in an environment designed around your working habits. Through EY@Work, we create energizing environments to help you work fluidly both in and out of the office.
Making the distinction between how EY people work, not where they sit, is a key component of our flexible working environment. Our EY@Work offices have open, collaborative spaces, ergonomic furniture and are fitted with integrated instant messaging software that allows for calls; conferences and video chat; video conferencing; smart walls and interactive room booking systems.
It’s all designed to help you and your team work collaboratively more easily, whether your colleagues are down the hall or around the world.
