Meet the Campus Recruitment team

Get to know our friendly campus recruiters who you’ll meet at various events throughout the year and read their top tips. The team welcome the chance to answer your questions about how to apply, where you fit, how we develop you, life at EY and what makes us different.

  • Amanda

    I’m Amanda and I studied a Bachelor of Arts in Melbourne. I started working at EY in late 2017, previously working in the mining and engineering sector for some large energy companies. I really enjoy working in campus recruitment as I love the energy and innovation mindsets that students bring. My top tips for students is to research the organisation, be clear about why you want to join and what you can offer, and most importantly, be yourself!

  • Katie

    I’m Katie and I studied a Bachelor of Education majoring in English and History before going onto study event management. Before beginning my career with EY I’ve held teaching and various student engagement roles. I have always been passionate about working with young people and this role plays an important part in helping them to navigate the different options available to them after university. Outside of work, I enjoy travelling to new countries, going on beach trips and attempting to surf. My top tip to students would be to make yourself a well-rounded candidate – think about what sets you apart and makes you interesting. Get involved in extracurricular activities so you can develop new knowledge and skills at the same time.

  • Ruth

    I’m Ruth and I studied Hospitality Management in Ireland. Prior to working at EY I worked for a number of other multi-national organisations within Australia and in the UK. I enjoy travel, cooking, and getting out and about. I love working in campus recruitment as I like being part of shaping students’ careers and helping them through their journey. My top tips for students are to not undersell yourself, practice your responses, be confident and don’t be afraid to show your personality!

  • Eleanor

    I’m Eleanor and I studied a Bachelor of Arts followed by a Graduate Diploma of Commerce (HR). I began my career with EY in June 2018, previously I worked for a recruitment agency supporting graduate campaigns before moving to an internal recruitment role in consumer goods. I’m passionate about campus recruitment as you have the ability to engage with a wide range of students from the very beginning of their studies – it’s about equipping them with an understanding of business, upskilling and preparing for them for interviews. Outside of work, I love to travel and I’ve been around Europe, Central America and Japan. My top tips for students are to do your research and prepare but don’t over prepare – we still want to get a sense of who you are and make sure you have an understanding of the business and service line you’re applying for!

    Saskia

    I’m Saskia and I studied a Bachelor of Behavioural Science in Perth. I started working at EY in October 2018 after working within the recruitment industry, and more recently at a university. So far I have really enjoyed collaborating with university partners, service line stakeholders and my team to support our vacationers and graduates build successful careers with EY. My top tips for students are to focus on developing your positive personal brand and start building meaningful networks now.

  • Chezzelle

    I’m Chezzelle and I studied a Bachelor of Accounting in Perth. I started my career in HR support and recruitment roles, and after a two-year stint in London I came back to Perth recruiting multidisciplinary roles for a construction company, before moving to EY in 2018. I’m passionate about campus recruitment as I relish the face-to-face interaction you get with students and the opportunity to build relationships with each candidate on a personal level. My top tip: Don’t try to sell us ‘A’ dream to be the ideal candidate, sell us ‘YOUR’ dream and what makes ‘YOU’ unique!

  • Adam

    I’m Adam and I studied a Bachelor of Science and a Bachelor of Commerce. I started my career at EY as a campus recruiter in late 2018. Previously I worked in other recruiting roles hiring interns and experienced professionals for specialist roles. My experience at EY so far has been great. It provides a supportive environment that acknowledges and celebrates diversity.

    I’m really passionate about providing opportunities for eager students to gain experience in a corporate environment and find the full-time employment they are looking for. My one tip would be to make your resume/cover letter standout. Do something different
