What we look for

People join EY to become exceptional. We welcome open, energetic people, with diverse mindsets and backgrounds, because they make us better, too.

Team-working and intercultural skills. EY services are built around high-performance, highly-integrated teams across the globe, so we look for team-working and intercultural skills. People who work well across borders with colleagues from diverse cultural backgrounds.

Evolve your skills and make your impact on a global stage

At EY, we believe that the jobs of the future will be more engaging, more flexible, and more globally oriented than ever before – and that automation will open up exciting opportunities to do more interesting work.

It’s clear that many of us will be working with technology that hasn’t yet been invented, solving problems that haven’t yet been identified. So while technical skill sets are evolving faster than ever, many are becoming irrelevant or obsolete just as quickly.

That’s why we recruit people today based on their mindset – not just their skillset.

Explore opportunities

Your mindset can help you shape your growth, your development, your future.

What you know matters. But we’re finding that mindset – how you learn and act – are just as important in determining success as the skillset you acquire through your education and work experience.

That’s because when you have the right mindset, you’re better able to adapt and manage through change. You’re better able to spot opportunity. You’re better able to lead others and get the most from their perspectives.

And while it’s not possible or realistic to master every skill, with the right mindset you can pivot unexpectedly, stay agile, see around corners, and keep pace with the rapidly changing world.

Your mindset will help to drive your career forward, giving you a desire to learn, adapt and acquire new skills.

We believe there are three mindsets which are critical to success in this time of near constant change: they are the mindsets to innovate, think analytically, and act globally.

What is an analytics mindset?

You’ll understand the importance of analytics and data to your profession, with the ability to extract, transform and interpret the relevant data.

You’ll be a natural problem solver, able to translate complex data into simple and useful insights. You’ll be comfortable sharing these results with both internal and external stakeholders.

You’ll also be committed to asking better questions in order to get relevant data and understand how to use it.

What is an innovation mindset?

You’ll drive disruption by seeing future opportunities that don’t yet exist and showing a passion for change and innovation.

You can collaborate to bring new ideas to market and always think outside the box, even if it goes against popular opinion.

Your hard skills such as forecasting and critical thinking are complemented by more abstract traits like creativity and the ability to manage and take advantage of change.

What is a global mindset?

You’ll have the ability to think, act and lead globally. You’ll drive innovation and identify creative solutions, working with clients and colleagues around the world.

You embrace diversity and are open and willing to think and work beyond your own perspectives and borders, to create new ideas and to approach problems in new ways.

You’re curious and you care deeply about people and businesses in cultures and markets different to yours, and can harness these differences to get to better solutions for your clients.

Today’s clients want to work with someone who has a global outlook, making global mindset a real competitive advantage as well as a critical component in your ability to adapt yourself and help your clients evolve as well.

We set high standards, but we offer a lot in return.

We look for strong communicators. Team players. Adaptable leaders.

EY people communicate effectively across different cultures regardless of location, religion, ethnicity or even language. They’re open, respectful, collaborative and generous team players. They’re nimble, adaptable and resilient; and are lifelong learners who are always well-informed and up-to-date.

If that sounds like you, then read on for how to apply to work with us at EY.
