Ways to work together

You can contract with EY under one of three arrangements. Which one is relevant for you may depend on your own set-up, the job you’re performing and the needs of a particular project.

1. As a Personal Services Company (Ltd Consultant)

It’s common for senior, career contractors to operate under a personal services company. If you’re set up this way, you’ll have a non-employee contract, arranged by our agency partner who’ll pay you via your Ltd Company. Because this is a business-to-business relationship, we don’t make any holiday uplift or NI contributions on your behalf. If you’re considering this working arrangement, we recommend that you seek advice from an independent accountant to make sure you comply fully with current legislation.

2. As a Pay As You Earn (PAYE) temp

As a temporary member of staff, we’ll pay you an hourly or daily rate and make tax and NI contributions on your behalf . This will be handled by our agency partner, so your Agency Worker Rights apply. You can explore current contracting opportunities with us (under Ltd Consultant and PAYE arrangements) on GigNow .

3. As a Fixed-Term Contractor (FTC)

Under this arrangement, you’ll have the same contractual terms as a permanent EY employee, including benefits, notice period and statutory rights. The only difference is your contractual end date. Because of this, a FTC arrangement differs from the other two contract types in some important ways. For example, we’ll be more involved in directing and supervising your work on a day-to-day basis – just like any employed team member. Rather than being limited to a specific project, task or set of commercial deliverables, you may be asked to work on a variety of more loosely defined assignments. You’ll need to dedicate your whole working time to EY, which means you can’t deliver services to other organisations at the same time.

If you’re interested in working with us as an FTC, you can search and apply for these opportunities using our main jobs board – use the ‘Search jobs’ button above or click here to view our latest jobs . You may also find our ‘Why EY ’ section of our website useful to explore the benefits of working with us.
