International Intern Leadership Conference

If you join us as an intern, you’ll have the opportunity to qualify for our annual three-day leadership conference, held in Orlando, Florida. It gathers our most talented interns from around the world to show them the scope and range of possibilities that EY opens up. It’s inspirational, high-energy, hands-on learning, and with interns from more than 200 countries, it’s a fun way to begin building your international network.

Industrial Placement

If your degree requires a year in industry, or if you’re looking for a year’s work experience, this placement can give you 12 months of valuable business know-how.

Working within our Assurance, Tax, Transactions or Advisory practices, you’ll be performing a role similar to that of a new graduate. From the outset, you’ll be working on real client projects and will contribute to a variety of work across a range of sectors.

It’s good to apply early as positions are limited and we’re always over-subscribed.

Work experience programs

Work experience programs are designed to equip you with the basics to be part of a client-facing project team. After training, you’ll go straight on to contribute to live projects and gain valuable insights into professional life. Find out more.

Be open to opportunities and experiences. With each experience, you’ll learn something new, make a connection, create a network and open up new possibilities that weren’t there before.

Global student experience program

Few things broaden your horizons like living and working in a different country, which is why the global student experience program offers international assignments in major cities around the globe. Immersing yourself in a new culture and challenges gives you the opportunity to grow by collaborating with people of diverse backgrounds — both professionally and culturally.

The four-week program starts in your home office before transferring to another EY office overseas; then you’ll come home to finish up your internship. Flights, housing and work visa costs will be paid for by EY.
