Military recruitment

EY has a clear vision, big ambition and bold purpose. The skills and leadership qualities you gain in the military are the same ones that could help you thrive here.

EY has been a great place to work, with a wide variety of people who all bring something different to the firm; the military ones included.

What is the EY Military Recruitment programme?

  • Our military network

    There are over 130 employees in our growing network including spouses of serving military, friends, family, reservists and military employees.

  • Buddy scheme

    We assign each new joiner with an ex-military buddy to guide them through the transition into professional services, provide feedback on their performance and guidance on their career with EY. 

    To help with transition from the military you'll receive dedicated support from an ex-military buddy, opportunities to join ex-military networking events, advice on professional services terminology, transitional and on-going support by the network.

  • Gold ERS scheme

    On 22 January 2015 Bjorn Conway, Partner UK&I Government and Public Sector, formally committed to honour the Armed Forces Covenant.
