What we offer

At EY-Parthenon you will be a full member of the team from day one. Whether our teams work at the clients’ site, or in our own offices: you will have full responsibility and autonomy to contribute your part of the answer to our clients’ urgent questions. Many of our clients operate internationally, just as EY-Parthenon. This gives you the opportunity to work on international projects, in Europe and beyond.

The right balance and coaching

Consultancy isn’t a nine-to-five occupation, but we strive for a healthy work-life balance. We believe that an active life is a healthy life, and this is why we offer our employees a gym membership and a healthy lunch. We want you to feel good - everyday!

From Associate to Manager, and on to Partner: your career is our priority. This is why we offer you a vast amount of coaching and training possibilities. In addition, you always have a buddy and a mentor for all your questions, no matter how  big or small.

Who we look for

You have achieved the requisite excellent academic performance to join us as an Associate. You are highly motivated and enjoy finding answers to questions. You carry yourself with confidence, but not arrogance, and work on solutions in a team and with the client, using your outstanding people and communication skills.

Versatility and individuality

Your academic specialization is not of importance to us. On the contrary, the people working for us have not always studied business or economics, but, for instance, physics, chemistry, biology, medicine (medical technology), engineering, political science, law or mathematics. This creates a versatility that we greatly appreciate in finding creative solutions. In any case, individuality is not a stumbling block for us, but highly welcomed. What matters to us is that you have personality and relentless energy.
