- New, Future Skills Summership will help high school students explore potential career paths
EΥ Cyprus continues to invest in the younger generation, offering students the opportunity to enhance their skills through its Summer Internship Programmes. As in previous years, this summer EY Cyprus will be providing the opportunity to around 100 university students from Cyprus, Europe, the UΚ and the USA to participate in a wide range of activities and training courses across all departments of the Firm.
Participants will have the chance, during the three-week Internship Programme, to engage and interact with EY professionals in the field, as well as with other students from different Universities, experience working in a challenging international work environment, and enhance their professional, social and networking skills. At the same time, students will be introduced to new technologies and innovative solutions, and undertake projects either individually or in small groups, thus developing a spirit of cooperation and teamwork.
For the first time this year, EY introduces Future Skills Summership, a new summer internship scheme, addressed specifically to high school students. Participants will have the opportunity to dive into topics not typically covered in schools, meet EY professionals, and get a glimpse of life at EY. The scheme is a one-week internship in the form of in-class workshops and hands-on practical experience. During this week, students will explore future-focused topics, such as environmental sustainability, emerging technology, civic literacy, financial literacy and more. These workshops are aimed at inspiring students to unlock new passions, explore potential career paths and teach skills needed for the future working world. All of the workshops have been designed to equip young people with transferable skills that will set them up for success and to work towards creating a better working world.
Ronald Attard, Country Managing Partner of EY Cyprus and Strategy and Transactions Leader for the CESA region, says: “At EY we strongly value the talents and enthusiasm of young people and believe in empowering the new generation by providing the best training to young talents to help them explore future careers paths and become true professionals. Cyprus, and EY in the country, will grow and prosper by developing and attracting the best talent and skills capable to deal with today’s complex challenges.”
