Virtual event: Tuesday 19 – Wednesday 20 April 2022
We’re committed to building a culture of belonging. We live in a diverse world and we believe the world we work in should reflect this. That’s why we’ve created programmes like this, to ensure everyone is made aware of what we do and given an equal opportunity to work with us. We’re aiming to double the proportion of female and ethnic minority talent in the UK partnership by July 2025, with a strong commitment to also increase our Black Partner talent.
Over two virtual days, you’ll take part in panel events, interactive workshops and discussions designed to inspire and energise you. As well as learning about other people’s stories, you’ll pick up great advice to help you sculpt your own as you begin your career.
There’ll also be Q&As with our people, information on our Diversity and Inclusion strategy, a session delivered by our EY Black Network, assessment centre workshops and the opportunity for networking.
If it works out well, you could be fast-tracked onto one of our summer internships, industrial placements or graduate programmes in 2023.
This event is aimed at raising awareness with students from black heritage and you’ll need to be in your first year at university, or second-year of a four year course, or in your penultimate year of university.
We operate an open access policy, meaning we don’t screen out applications on your academic performance alone. You will, however, need to be working towards an Honours degree in any subject – have a minimum of grade 4/C GCSE (or equivalent) in English Language and Maths, and three A-levels/ Five Highers (or equivalent) to be eligible to apply.
The event will be held virtually and the Student Talent Attraction and Acquisition team will provide all of the information you need before you join. You must currently be studying at a UK university and in the UK at the time of the event (outside UK travel costs cannot be covered).
We welcome applications from all academic backgrounds and are looking for individuals who will succeed at EY in the desired role and future qualifications, therefore throughout our recruitment process your academic performance will be considered against your online assessment scores to determine your suitability for an EY role. We’re also proud to partner with RARE recruitment, so that your application can be processed in the context of your socio-economic background. This allows us to give you the maximum credit for your achievements, assessing whether you have overachieved in light of your personal circumstances. Read more on our approach here.
