We’ll involve you in our business – and in the wider community

At EY we have a strong commitment to involvement and teamwork. It’s important you feel part of our wider organization and feel at first hand the powerful impact we’re able to have on businesses and communities.

This sense of involvement stretches a long way beyond the formal work you’ll add to your CV/resume. It’s about the bonds that you form with your colleagues, the support you give to our corporate responsibility activities and the way you contribute to our ongoing discussions within the organization. And the experiences you gain along the way will last throughout your working life.

We make a difference

If you join EY, you’ll feel welcome from your first day until long after you leave. But there are lots of opportunities to enhance your sense of belonging here.

That’s because we take community leadership seriously; our support for the United Nations Global Compact and Transparency International are just two examples. And we rely on the enthusiasm and skills of our people to cement our place in each community we’re a part of.

Corporate responsibility at EY

CareersYou’ve found the right place if you want to make a difference outside of your professional role. Our approach to corporate responsibility coordinates volunteering activities — in education, entrepreneurship and environmental sustainability — in a way that makes real use of your unique skills and capabilities. That way, you can have a far greater personal impact.

Community engagement is also a key part of our global career development framework.

You’ll have the opportunity to develop in new and different contexts. You might be improving your public speaking, sharpening your negotiating skills or collaborating with people from a variety of backgrounds. But at the same time, you’ll be helping the community and building career-enhancing skills.

EY Alumni

CareersNot everyone spends their whole career at EY. But no matter where your career takes you, you’ll find your time here will do more than develop your skills and increase your experience.

You’ll have made connections and friendships that will prove invaluable throughout your career. As an EY alumnus, you’ll be offered many opportunities to network with your fellow professionals.

So however your career evolves, you’ll continue to benefit from your time with us, whether you choose to leave or stay. And if you do decide to pursue opportunities outside EY, we hope you’ll become one of the many people who rejoin, bringing valuable experience and perspectives that enrich our organization.

At the heart of Europe

PhilharmonieLuxembourg is a true reflexion of the multicultural environment present in EY with 69% of residents coming from 143 different countries. Its high quality of living, its scenery and its convenient central location in Europe makes it an ideal destination to live and work.

General information about Luxembourg:

"Of all the countries I have visited, the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg is the smallest, but it is the one that has charmed me most and where hospitality has been most simple and cordial". Winston Churchill.

Sixth-smallest country of the world and also the only Grand Duchy, Luxembourg can, nevertheless, be considered as the economic center of Europe. Thanks to the highest concentration of banks of Europe (more than 150 banks established on 2586 km2), but also holding companies and investment funds and many industries, Luxembourg became one of the most prominent financial center in the world. Luxembourg is known for being the biggest center for private banking of the Eurozone and is second in the field of investment funds.

Beyond its economical aspects, Luxembourg is also a country with a high quality of life.
Luxembourg offers a truly cosmopolitan environment, out of a population of 511.800 inhabitants (as at 31/12/2010), 43, 2% are foreign born.
In addition, approximately 151.000 cross-border commuters from France, Belgium and Germany daily commute to Luxembourg. Thanks to this international aspect, Luxembourg has three official national languages: Luxembourgish the mother tongue, German and French. However at EY, 42 nationalities are represented.

Its capital: Luxembourg city, one of the safest cities in Europe, offers many cultural aspects: many events and exhibitions often take place. The several museums (Musée d’Art de la ville de Luxembourg, Musée National d’Histoire Naturelle, etc.) and music festivals (Blue’n’Jazzrallye, festival Meyouzik, Music festival Rock Um Knuedler, etc.), concert halls, theatres and a full range of sports (Golf courses, cycling for example) are many possibilities to entertain during time-off.
Luxembourg is also very famous for its art of fine dinery with more Michelin-starred Restaurants per head of inhabitant than any other country in the world. Wining is also something very characteristic of the Luxembourgish’s culture, with the Moselle valley’s vineyards.
40 % of the territory is composed of green landscapes. Old town, medieval houses and modern art are living together to make Luxembourg as its population: a cosmopolitan place.
