4. How well organised/structured is your programme?

10/10

The structure is excellent. First the induction day moved smoothly and was virtually online with good connections and perfect to meet different individuals on the call. The training was on the job mainly and required me to experiment different scenarios to find the right one. Overall the structure has a talent team and different personal that help.

5. How much support do you receive from your employer?

9/10

I receive a good support from my employer. I am able to take study leave days for education as well as allowing them to take days off to study closer to the exams. The Ethnic minority mentorship helps me to speak to people higher up in the firm and bridge the gap.

6. How much support do you receive from your training provider when working towards your qualifications?

8/10

I receive support from my training provider with books and planned out e-learning material that allows me to be focused on the next lesson as the pre-learning helps. The training provider also sends books and emails to keep me on track and newsfeed to keep me updated on the latest changes during this year exams

7. How well do you feel that your qualification (through your training provider) helps you to perform better in your role?

8/10

Currently the qualifications I am studying give a slight importance to my role however I am not seeing the stark difference quite yet. Maybe as I move in the education will allow me to understand new concepts. However currently assurance is the exam I am about to do and this helps with risk.

8. Are there extra-curricular activities to get involved in at your work? (For example, any social activities, sports teams, or even professional networking events.)

10/10

There are many exta-curricular ativities at work such as the religion faith networks and the LGBTQ+ network and women in leadership series. There are also gyms that are open and I am unware of any sports teams as of yet. I have also seen in the EYMC different programmes with in such as Ramadhan network

9a. Would you recommend EY to a friend?

Yes

9b. Why?

The working enviroment is awesome. The people I work with are kind and caring for the hours you flex around the day. This inclusiveness helps me to be myself at work. the main recommendation would be the work people and place being London and around multicultural food places as well as people

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

In order to succeed you need to accept failure at some stages. Failure help bring me back. The interview consists of maths questions and an interview with a partner. The process is easy to apply to and some stages are tough but learn to be yourself and passionate about the field you wish to join
