Leave arrangements

  • FLEXleave

    You'll have the opportunity to purchase up to six weeks extra leave. This provides you with more time for study, family or other personal pursuits.

  • Paid parental leave

    You’re entitled to 16 weeks paid parental leave once you have been with EY for 12 months. This is on top of the Government’s paid parental leave provisions. This paid leave benefit can be taken on a part-time/flexible basis. Parental Leave Mentoring is available to all EY staff taking parental leave, as is Grace Papers, a digital parental leave platform which provides guidance to EY parents and managers on navigating the transition back to work.

  • Flexibility

    We aim to promote a flexible work culture by assisting our people to balance their work and personal responsibilities through the availability of flexible working arrangements.


  • myPerks

    You can take advantage of myPERKS, which offers genuine discounts to a great range of popular retailers. You and your family can save on everything from your everyday groceries and petrol to travel, clothes, entertainment, insurance, homewares, electronics and more!

  • Corporate discounts

    You can take advantage of a wide range of lifestyle benefits and corporate discounts from leading brands across technology, banking, travel and general and health insurances.


EY is focused on the health and wellbeing of our people and have a wellbeing program dedicated to ensuring EY people maintain good wellbeing. Our wellbeing initiatives cover financial health, physical and mental health, family and community and the quality and value of work.

We support complimentary flu shots, nutritious snacks and fruit in the office and some of our offices offer wellness centres and gym corporate discounts.

  • Employee Assistance Program

    You and members of your immediate family can access independent, confidential counselling, free of charge, from professionally qualified counsellors should you need advice on personal, family or work-related concerns.

  • Social Club

    The EY Social Club organises a range of activities, from sporting events to informal and formal social functions, including – in most offices – an annual ball.


  • Study Assistance

    We'll help you meet the cost of approved external studies, which may include providing you with financial assistance to cover all or part of your course fees and the cost of your study materials. We may also offer you study and exam leave.

  • Professional memberships

    We'll cover joining and annual membership fees for one professional body each year. This includes the Institute of Chartered Accountants or an equivalent body for qualified professionals.

  • Global Employee Referral Program

    Recruiting the best people is critical to our success, and people like you are often the best source of the best candidates. The Global Employee Referral Program provides you with a cash reward if you successfully refer a candidate. The cash reward is received after the candidate commences work in the organisation.

Working nationally, working overseas

We offer domestic and global mobility opportunities. That means you could find yourself working in other EY offices within New Zealand – or in one of our offices overseas. You can apply for an overseas secondment once you've had a few years experience with us.
