EY student recruitment up 25%

EY connect day

Come this September EY will be welcoming 1,337 graduates and 201 apprentices to the UK firm – that’s a 25% increase on 2021.

These trainees will be joining EY’s teams across Britain, with 39% based outside London.

Hywel Ball, EY’s UK chair said: “We’re very conscious that, over the last three years, young people have faced unique challenges caused by the pandemic with many having experienced disruption to their studies. That’s why, for the third year running, we’ve honoured all the conditional offers we made prior to Highers and A-level results days.

“Diversity, Equity & Inclusiveness continues to be a strategic imperative for EY and we are proud to see this reflected in our intake this year. We aim to provide a range of entry routes into the profession so that we can access the best, diverse talent. From our insight days and summer internship schemes to our apprenticeship, graduate and school leaver programmes, we aim to provide our new joiners with opportunities to gain skills, hands-on experience and a qualification.”
