EY – Why Work For Us?

Working at EY you’ll receive a wealth of opportunities, benefits, programmes and policies to help you achieve success in all elements of your life, and to recognise and reward the value you bring to our business. And on top of developing your career, we pay attention to the way you work, your compensation, and your benefits.

Your work lifestyle

Working at EY is challenging and stimulating — your day-to-day work is complex and multi-faceted and it requires you to push the boundaries of your capabilities. As part of a high-performing team, we want you to be able to work in a way that delivers exceptional service to your clients while maintaining your own wellbeing.

We provide the tools and technology you need to work flexibly and meet the commitments you make to clients, to your family and to your community. We also encourage you to move around – globally, if that’s what you’d like to do.

Your compensation

We believe that our people should be rewarded competitively for the contributions they make. We know our total cash package is competitive, we carry out annual market research on reward, and we check that at all stages of the salary review process that we have a fair and consistent approach.

Career Progession at EY

We know that our success and our clients' depends on your development. Through our comprehensive career development framework EYU (EY and You), we provide you with the learning, experiences and coaching that will help you succeed.


Each year, our people complete over one million courses and 8 hours of training through our learning management system, which is designed to enhance both your technical skills and business acumen.


The most enriching, career-enhancing experiences are gained on the job, so this is a formal part of our career development framework. We plan assignments that provide exceptional client service while giving you the best environment to develop your career.

Who we are

People who demonstrate integrity, respect, and teaming.

People with energy, enthusiasm, and the courage to lead.

People who build relationships based on doing the right thing.

Our values define who we are. They are the fundamental beliefs of our global organization. They guide our actions and behavior. They influence the way we work with each other – and the way we serve our clients and engage with our communities.

Every day, each one of us makes choices and decisions that directly affect the way we experience each other and the way our clients and wider communities experience us. Our values give us confidence that we are using the same principles to help us make these decisions throughout our global organization.

Entrepreneurs make a difference. They not only have great ideas, but also the drive to make them a reality. They use their fresh thinking and hard work to create positive social change – bringing new concepts and products to market, and creating jobs and wealth.

We have long recognized the potential of entrepreneurs. Over the past three decades, we have been working with entrepreneurs, adapting our experience, industry capabilities and resources to work for entrepreneurial, fast-growth companies. We work with a range of businesses, from those receiving their first venture funding through to large mid-cap companies, whose value may be measured in billions of dollars.

Our commitment to entrepreneurial companies, in both emerging and developed economies around the world, helps ensure that we’re working with more of tomorrow’s global leaders, today.
