1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:


As part of the Skills Academy, we had a two day programme which was informing us about what life at EY would be like if we were to join the company.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?


I learnt many things about the different service lines that are available, which built on my previous knowledge from the EY website. I also developed my presentation skills, as we delivered a case study we had been working on in teams, which was excellent for developing communication skills also.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


I thoroughly enjoyed the EY Skills Academy, it exceeded any expectations I did have. It was a very friendly environment, full of well driven and motivated people, who aim to create a better working world.

4. How valued do you feel by EY?


I felt very valued by EY, they gave us support whilst there and many passed on emails in case we had any questions in the future.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?


It was very well organised beforehand, we had clear communication with EY before the Skills academy. The Skills academy also had a clear, organised structure, time had gone into planning it which made it enjoyable as no time was being wasted.

6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?


Currently I am waiting to join the School Leavers programme in September, I have been assigned a contact buddy in case I have any questions, which is extremely useful.

6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?


Currently I have a lot of people supporting me as I wait to join the School Leavers programme, people from EY are extremely helpful and supportive if you have any questions.

7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?


In September, my salary will meet my needs for living in London. I will have to budget but I will have plenty of money spare for social once I have paid for all my essential items.

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?


Currently, there has been one get to know you day and another in the summer, these are great opportunities to meet others joining also in September. Once joining in September, I know EY offers may opportunities outside of work.

9a. Would you recommend EY to a friend? *


9b. Why? *

EY is a very friendly environment, full of supportive individuals who are willing to help you if you have any problems. I would also recommend it since everyone feels valued, everyone is working equally hard, so together EY goal to build a better working world will be achieved.

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to EY? *

To others applying I would advise they practise the online tests before doing them, as timing could be a shock otherwise. Also for their final interview I would suggest they practise well, or even plan a mock interview with someone. I would suggest that they dress as if they were an employer, this may also make them feel at ease when surrounded with others like this.
