Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islanders at EY Australia
Do you know what it takes to build a better working world?
EY is committed to increasing employment opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. It is EY’s vision to embed reconciliation across EY to drive improved social and economic outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and enhance relationships between Australia’s First Peoples and other Australians.
Students have the choice to join EY’s Indigenous Intern Program, either directly, or through our collaboration with CareerTrackers which offers up to twelve weeks of paid work experience per year throughout university. Interns are supported by an indigenous mentor, assigned a buddy and a counsellor, and are able to join the EY Indigenous staff network, providing the opportunity to connect with other Indigenous people across Australia.
Upon graduation, a number of EY interns are offered a full-time graduate position where they can continue their career and professional development with EY. EY graduates gain broad experiences working with a variety of EY clients and are supported through coaching and professional learning.
As graduates progress they may also decide to join our national Indigenous Sector Practice (ISP) which operates across all service lines. The ISP is a purpose-led offering to generate transformative impact and endure positive outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. The ISP works with and for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities and the government agencies, non-government organisations and corporates that support and work with them.
Applications for the EY Indigenous Intern or Graduate Programs are open all year round.
My favourite part of my experience so far is being able to work closely with EY clients to help build resilience into their increasingly large and complex IT systems, applications and infrastructures.
