Top 10 reasons why you should work for EY

Category: EY

EY is one of the largest professional services firms in the world. Headquartered in London with offices around the globe and a total workforce of over 200,000 people, they place a high premium on recruiting the best talent. As a consequence, EY offers an incredible variety of rewards, incentives and support networks to justify their high standards.

1 – Training and development

EY believe that the key to their success lies in the quality of their employees. By providing opportunities for learning, such as the New Horizons Programme, Enterprise Growth Services and the EY Foundation, they help their employees, partners and communities reach their highest potential.

2 – Flexible working 

EY has designed its working environment to allow for flexible working patterns, giving employees the chance to take control of their own schedules and create the working week that best suits them.

3 – Rewards and benefits

Aside from the generous wages they offer, working for EY comes with various perks, including but not limited to a salary sacrifice car scheme, annual travel insurance, carbon offsetting, gym memberships, season ticket loans and childcare vouchers.

4 – Bonuses

Given the huge revenues EY generates, it is no surprise that they offer an assortment of lucrative financial incentives. Alongside performance-based bonuses, they have a £10,000 referral scheme, a tax return advice scheme, and an extremely generous pension plan.

5 – Medical support and wellbeing

As well as receiving company health insurance, EY provides a free health assessment for all employees with three years’ service, in-house occupational health and rehabilitation consultants, and 24/7 access to a confidential counselling service for employees and their families.

6 – Mental health support

The EY Mental Health Network provides a support system to those suffering with mental health issues, working with them to help break the taboo around talking about this issue and giving them the tools to manage their condition in the work environment.

7 – Disability support

EY has a long track record of support for those working with disabilities, whether physical or mental. The EY Dyslexia Network recently published a report, generated by dyslexic EY employees, which emphasises the many ways businesses can develop and support employees with the condition.

8 – Career returnship through EY Reconnect

EY Reconnect is a 12-week paid programme of support for managers and above looking for a route back into the workplace after an extended career break. Participants benefit from specialised inductions and coaching, while working on client projects in one of our business areas. At the end of the programme, participants wishing to stay with the firm will be considered for permanent opportunities.

9 – Military recruitment

A major proponent of the UK’s Armed Forces Covenant, EY has consistently demonstrated its support for the Armed Forces by providing sponsorships for service personnel transitioning to civilian street, providing active-duty reservists with additional support to allow them to juggle their careers in EY and the military, and through their involvement with BuildForce, which offers training and mentoring for armed forces leavers.

10 – Business apprenticeship

An excellent alternative to university, the EY business apprenticeship gives opportunities to those who wish to advance in their chosen career without committing to a degree. The programme allows candidates to work towards achieving a globally recognised qualification.
