Dear All,

Needless to say, last year has been extra challenging for every one of us. I’m confident though, that we’re shortly getting back to our normal lives. I’ve truly missed the active, face-to-face, collaboration with our team, the meetings internally, and with our clients, as well as also getting back to sports and hobbies.

Luckily, the general feeling in the market has been positive and we have succeeded in growing our business across the board. Our engagements are diverse, and we are serving intriguing clientele, both in Finland, and across the world. As we know, growth does not come without investments into people and active recruiting. We are, and will continue, to be aggressive and ambitious on recruiting and on-boarding new colleagues !

With this, I warmly welcome all of You to take a look at the exciting career opportunities that EY can offer. I also urge you to apply to our trainee program and join our growing Consulting team with a mission of building a better working world!

Yours,
Riku
