1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
I have been hired as a Scholarship Intern at EY, which means I will be placed on different teams working on real projects throughout my internship. This may involve me doing office work or travelling to client sites.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
The programme offers a great opportunity to understand more about how the company and its projects run, and gives me the opportunity to develop my client facing and teamwork skills.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
The people running the programme are very keen on making sure that everyone is enjoying and getting the most out of it - this shows through various events which are organised, such as lunches to allow fellow scholars to network or activities after work.
4. How valued do you feel by EY?
I feel that EY has a very strong sense of inclusion and values all of its employees, including interns. Interns can be expected to be placed on real projects and have a lot of guidance available to them.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
The programme is clearly structured into 3 separate internships, and I have received the dates for my first internship well in advance of its start. I will have an induction during my first placement and support is available throughout via peers on my project.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
The training provider has been brilliant in providing support, through many emails and attending each assessment centre. The training provider maintained a very positive attitude to candidates, making her very approachable.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
I receive emails concerning any matters which are politely written and thorough in explaining anything that I am required to do, responses to any queries I have are also quick and pleasant.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
This is an extremely generous package provided by EY. Accommodation during the working week is provided for people living outside of Greater London. The accommodation provided is also based very close to the office, meaning that travel costs are reduced. The bursary provided for university study is also very helpful.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
EY has hosted many events in my experience, such as: a networking lunch in London, a street art lesson and pizza making. These events are really enjoyable and also great for developing friendships with colleagues.
9a. Would you recommend EY to a friend? *
9b. Why? *
The company seems to really value every individual, which is proven through the events it runs, the support it offers and the salary that comes with the internship. EY really helps employees grow, and this is shown through them giving interns a secure future through a job offer after university finishes provided that interns perform to an appropriate standard.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to EY? *
For the interviews it is important to be honest, and make sure you read up about EY and the job position you are applying for. At the assessment centre, many tasks are time critical, so it is important that you are able to manage your time efficiently so that you can complete every task given to you as best as possible in the time given.
