What if there was nothing in your way?

EY’s Reconnect programme is an initiative to provide a route back into business for talented individuals with strong industry experience.

We are looking to engage career returners through this programme, which is designed for people who have been on a career break for between 2 and 10 years. You will be given support in this role to succeed, with thorough induction, coaching and mentoring. We will bring you into our business for a paid period of 12 weeks, starting September 2016.  You will work on client projects, drawing from your previous experience, skills and knowledge. At the end of the programme you will have the opportunity to apply to join EY permanently.

Opportunities exist across our business, at manager level and above, including roles in: 

- Advisory
- Transactions
- Tax
- Assurance

Following your career break, you will be keen to re-start your professional life. Your background will be in either Big 4, management consultancy, financial services, blue chip commercial company, or in HR/talent consulting.  EY Reconnect offers the opportunity to join a multi-cultural, inclusive and diverse workplace where we encourage creativity and flexibility. Join us in an environment where both team work and independent work is part of how we work.

Why EY? 

We’re investing heavily to be the employer of choice in professional services. We can offer you a range of experiences and assignments that will inspire your professional development and help you move closer to your long-term goals. 

Our commitment to a diverse and inclusive workforce is core to our growth ambitions. We are proud of our Women.Fast Forward initiative where we have collectively pledged our commitment to accelerating the global gender parity clock.  We also have a range of well established and thriving networks across the business including EY Parents' Network, EY Women’s Network and the Disability Network, and are recognised publicly as a leading Social Mobility Champion.   

We have completed our first intake for this year’s EY Reconnect programme and look forward to opening the scheme to new applicants in the future. In the meantime, for any further information or questions on the programme, please get in touch via eyreconnect@uk.ey.com.
