This career involves working with people in a caring capacity. If you have no interest in helping people personally or educationally then this may be the wrong profession for you.

Empathy, patience and respect are important qualities for this job, in addition to be able to relate well to the person you are dealing with. As there is also a large amount of information to be handled in the job, good organisational, IT and time management skills are also quite important.

EY Summer Internship Programme 2017 CLOSED

**Closed**

Applications for our Summer Internship in Advisory are still open!

Our Summer Internship Programme isn’t so much an internship. It is 12 weeks to become an integral part of a team in EY. You’ll receive world-class, hands-on training that has real-world application. You’ll stretch yourself and we’ll challenge you. After a comprehensive induction you will join the business and begin doing the same work as any other employee in EY. You’ll work as part of a team, meet with clients and make a real contribution to EY projects. We trust the students who join EY for the summer to make a real impact and we encourage you to do so.

Every week you’ll receive specific training in a different business area to ensure that by the end of the summer, you will have a wealth of new skills.

In addition to your new skills and experience, our internship is also fully-paid. You will work for EY as if you were a full-time employee therefore we believe you should be compensated as such.

The programme is open to students from all disciplines in their penultimate year. We want business students, scientists, engineers, students from the arts & humanities, law students. We want people from all backgrounds. This helps us to build a more complete and diverse workplace, which contributes to our objective of building a better working world.
