You need to work with people in the industry as knowledge is everything  - where to buy, who from, when etc. Health and safety courses and a pleasant manner and drive are also important.

Administrative?
Administrative
Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

Describe any particular characteristics of your workforce?
At EY we like to hire people who think a bit differently. We’re looking to build a better working world and you don’t do that by going about it the same way as you always did. That’d be madness.

You build a better working world by going at it differently, and that means hiring people who think differently, act differently, work differently, and recognise that there’s some serious merit in doing things differently.


 

Who We Recruit...
Career opportunities for school leavers.

N/A

 

Career opportunities for college graduates.

EY values difference. Our business thrives on asking the better questions. Those questions lead to better answers, which offer up the best solutions. Better questions are different questions, the questions that haven’t been asked before.

The best people to ask these questions are people who have a diverse experience of the world and come with a different insight. That’s why we look for people from a range of degree backgrounds.

Take engineering. Engineers have to be supremely numerate and possess strong logical reasoning, as well keeping aflame a certain creativity that allows for innovation and imagination. Engineers are the perfect candidates for starting a career in Audit, Tax, Transactions and Advisory! Their natural attributes that lead them to pursue a degree in engineering are exactly the qualities we look for in our people.

The EY Graduate Programmes are the perfect broad level foundation from which to start your career in business. We’ll give you the opportunity to drive lasting change and explore for yourself how you can help us build a better working world.

Our graduate programmes suit you and your needs. We want to know what your career aspirations are and how we can guide you towards achieving them. We’ll support you as you pursue your professional qualifications and make sure you make the choice that is right for you.

We offer Graduate Programmes in the following five areas:

  • Assurance
  • Advisory
  • Tax
  • Transaction
  • IT, Data and Cyber

Despite what you may have been told, we don’t just hire accountants. We want people from all backgrounds. We definitely want engineers to join us in building a better working world. We want to build a diverse workforce, where the broadest spectrum of skills and ideas can be brought together to mix and spark the best solutions for our clients, and our world. No matter what you studied in college, if you’re bright, curious and enthusiastic there is a Graduate Programme at EY tailored just for you.

About Us... header image

We’re EY. We’re one of the Big 4.

You might have heard of us but what you probably haven’t heard is we’re a bit different to the others. We like to think about things in a new, fresh kind of way. That’s why we like to hire people who think a bit different too. Just look at our most recent batch of graduates ...

There’s Timi, the award-winning blogger with an insatiable curiosity. We like the way he wants to soak up new stuff - like fashion, music, and social media.

There’s Claire, the maths wizard always thinking of new disruptive ways to improve how we audit people. She’s the kind of disruptive person we like to work with.

There’s Mark, the social butterfly building strong relationships across the world. We’re not talking about purely ‘strictly business, yes, spreadsheets and synergy’ relationships but genuine human bonding. EY is about the people and Mark is showing us how it’s done.

There’s Aoife, the West Cork techie with a serious wanderlust, working on client site auditing some of the world’s coolest tech firms in Ireland. You’ll usually find her knocking about Grand Canal Dock, doing some seriously exciting work.

There’s Stephen, the curious one, always looking for the inside track. He just wants to get beneath the bonnet, and figure it all out from within.

There’s Tommy, the GAA All Star who's got the ‘work hard/play hard’ craic down to a T.

Then there’s Hazel, who decided photocopying and coffee runs weren’t for her so she joined EY and launched straight into the big leagues, working with major EY clients.

We’re the big 4 but different.

These are our graduates, they’re a bit different themselves, and that’s why we love working with them. You see, we’re looking to build a better working world. You don’t do that by going about it the same way as you always did. That’d be madness. You build a better working world by going at it differently, and that means hiring people who think differently, act differently, work differently, and recognise that there’s some serious merit in doing things differently.

We’re EY. And if you’re anything like the folks above, or even if you’re totally different to them, we want to hear from you. We have Summer Internships available in Assurance, Advisory, Tax, Transactions, IT, Data and Cyber. The work you’ll do with us is leagues apart from the work you’ll do anywhere else.
