Careers at EY

We bring extraordinary people, like you, together to build a better working world. We provide the tools, learning, flexibility and diverse and inclusive culture so that you can become the best version of you, and help others do the same.

Your point of view matters and you deserve to feel included. We want you to be supported to use your voice to help others find theirs. Whoever you are, we believe your uniqueness helps us stand apart. The ability to invite, leverage and learn from different perspectives is fundamental to driving innovation, building strong relationships and delivering the best approaches for EY clients.

We are investing more time, technology and money than ever before in skills and learning for EY people. This includes the launch of the new, first of its kind EY Tech MBA, which builds on the success of our EY Badges program. Together these help EY people develop future-focused skills in areas such as technology, sustainability and leadership.

Imagine having the freedom to customize the career you envision, in a place where an inclusive, supportive culture opens doors to rich experiences and opportunities.

The exceptional EY experience. It’s yours to build.

What is it like to work here?

We are proud of the work we have done so far in making EY an inclusive place to work. Our policies are focused on continuing to advance gender equality, share the care, and build an inclusive EY. We offer a number of formal and informal flexible working options and in addition to these we have gender affirmation leave, an opportunity to substitute public holidays for a day of cultural significance and domestic violence leave to protect our people.

Whether you identify as part of the LGBTQ community, are non-binary, have a disability or are a proud member of our Indigenous community, we invite you to find out more about working at EY. Over 59% of EY people were born outside of Oceania and between us, we can speak almost 80 different languages.

We have employee networks centred around all the beautiful differences that our people bring and unite around a shared set of interests, experiences, and perspectives. EY employee networks provide everyone an opportunity to learn, make new connections, friendships, and extend their networks. Being actively involved in a network can be rewarding personally and professionally, whether that be by opening up our mindsets, or learning a new recipe through our [email protected] (Cultural Diversity @EY) cookbook!

[email protected], aims to support EY people to build a better working world through understanding and embracing cultural diversity at work, with our clients, the marketplace and the wider community. Our CD Mentoring Program enables mentoring couples to explore some of the unique challenges facing our people of culturally diverse backgrounds and support them to develop strategies for success.

Our Gender Network focuses on accelerating gender parity at EY and beyond and exists for women, men and non-binary people. We know that both men and women feel the detrimental impacts of gender inequality and recognise the important role that all people have in progressing gender equality.

We recently updated our family leave policy to offer either parent 18 weeks of flexible paid leave within the first 24 months of a child being with you regardless of how your family formed. Whilst you are on parental leave, we will also continue to pay your superannuation for up to 12 months. Whilst preparing for, undertaking and returning from extended leave, EY people are supported by a digital parental leave platform which provides guidance and support on everything from starting a family to being a working grandparent. We also provide paid leave for early pregnancy loss, fertility treatments and leave for grandparents.

Through our Ability Network, we continue to be intentional about elevating disability inclusion and ensure accessibility in the workplace. We are a proud signatory to the Valuable 500, a coalition of the world’s most influential businesses who are igniting systemic change by unlocking the business, social and economic value of people with disabilities everywhere. Through our second Access and Inclusion Plan and the lived experiences of our people we have committed to continuing to establish EY as a workplace free from barriers and structural inequality, where everyone may reach their full potential.

EY  people were given an incredible insight into the wonderful culture that is the deaf/hard of hearing community through learning the language from deaf natives through the Auslan and [email protected] courses. We also recently partnered with the University of Sydney for a neurodiversity hiring program. We are really proud of the learnings and results and are excited to explore this incredible cohort further.

Through our Unity network group, EY is a member of Pride in Diversity and is delighted to have achieved AWEI Platinum Employer status for LGBTQ inclusion. This outstanding result recognises the significant leadership we have shown in the area of LGBTQ inclusion over an extended period.

EY LGBTI employee community and their allies have access to internal or external mentoring and we are incredibly humbled by the success of our She Starts Out business mentoring program. The program aimed exclusively at social impact entrepreneurs who identify as LGBTQ women or non-binary people acknowledges the additional intersectional barriers faced by these individuals as they build their start-up business and seeks to accelerate their progress and commercial success through online business clinics and the support of an EY business mentor for guidance and support. 

We know there is always more we can do and continuously seek to understand and adapt to what our people need to be their best in their work. Your uniqueness is what helps us to stand apart.
