Hear from our Graduates, Vacationers and Cadets

Emily Bateman | EY Graduate Program

What did you learn through the program?

This program taught me the value of building relationships, teaming and above all balancing work and fun. The relationships I developed helped immensely with my transition to working life. Having a team of people who were going through a similar new experience was invaluable, as were all the memories from events. While 7 years on many of my grad group are now succeeding in other roles, the network and friendships I was able to develop through the grad program is still important to me today.

How did it shape your current career?

The grad program gave me the support and the building blocks I needed to develop and succeed in my career. My buddy and counsellor were always available and never seemed to tire of my endless questions, helping me to grow and reach my goals; the training program taught me valuable technical skills (I still drag out my old training materials to this day!), and the opportunities to attend meetings and be part of a team on large complex assignments taught me how to manage client relationships and workflow.

What is your advice for future graduates?

Ask questions, seek out opportunities and challenges, learn as much as you can and above all else enjoy the experience. It’s such a fun and exciting time for which you can establish the grounds for success in your future career.

Andrew Baker | EY Vacationer Program

Why did you apply to the Vacationer Program?

I applied to be a vacationer at the EY organisation as I wanted to be a part of a team that helps clients transform, and I really identified with EY team’s purpose of “building a better working world.” I wanted to work in a role where I could help drive long term improvements and change, having a positive impact on clients, and in many cases on the community more broadly.

What did you learn through the program?

I have learnt so many things at the EY organisation that it is impossible to capture in one sentence. Working with different clients and people helps you learn general to specific competency and sector skills. There is always the opportunity to learn at the EY organisation, and it is the perfect place for people who are lifelong learners.

The best thing about the program

The best thing about the Vacationer programs is being able to spend time with the EY teams and explore what a career at the EY organisation could hold for you. EY is a great place to work if you are unsure of what you want to do with your career as there are so many different things you can try. I would definitely recommend the Vacationer program at EY (after all I did come back as a graduate). It was a great way to learn more about the organisation and also learn about myself and help identify what some of my areas of interest are.

Annie Zhai | EY Cadet Porgram

Why did you apply to the Cadet Program?

The cadet program is such a great way to apply the knowledge you’ve learnt in class on real-world clients. The EY organisation is renowned for its service excellence and our large portfolio means that every engagement is different to the next. Also, you can’t beat the view from EY offices!

What did you learn through the program?

Trust yourself. A lot of the times we doubt ourselves because we’re not confident in our abilities. But we often surprise ourselves. 

The best thing about the program?

EY teams have a ‘people first’ culture that is centred on nurturing your professional and personal development. Your seniors will encourage your tax technical development and place you on interesting engagements that foster innovation and creativity.

Caitlan Howle | EY Career Compass Program

What did you learn through the Careers Compass Program?

The Career Compass Program was a great way to learn about the offerings of EY service lines beyond information that can be found on a website. Getting the opportunity to speak with people from diverse teams in each of the service lines uncovered all the career opportunities that are available at the EY organization.

The best thing about the program

The undoubted highlight of the Career Compass Program is having the opportunity to speak with a diverse group of people who were so passionate about their roles but the EY organisation. Being able to talk with so many people gave me a clear idea of the type of work I wanted to be doing in the early stages of my career and to start building a network.

Diversity & Inclusion

Talk to anyone at EY and they’ll tell you it’s a rewarding place to work in so many ways. EY teams attract high-performing individuals from different backgrounds and experiences who – like you – bring a unique point of view and business skills.

We welcome all people, no matter who they are or what their background is. Each of us is different, and when people feel valued for their differences, they feel part of something greater; they feel like they belong. That’s when creative ideas flow, igniting innovation and inspiring more effective solutions.

We each have multiple aspects to our identity, some of which may not be visible to others. Whether cultural background, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, age or family status; we value diverse viewpoints and see them as the catalysts that lead to better questions and better answers. Using a variety of internal networks, inclusive leadership behaviours, flexible working and mentoring programs, we use practical solutions to create your personalised work experience, all supported by a strong, authentic culture and our fundamental belief that we all ‘belong’.

People with Disability at EY

Ability is an EY network for allies who support disability inclusion across the workplace and communities, those who care for a person with a disability and EY people living with a disability. It aims to elevate disability inclusion on all agendas and ensure accessibility at EY, recognising the contribution all EY people make to the working world.

We are proud at EY to be one of the 4% of organisations across the globe that include disability in the EY diversity agenda (World Economic Forum 2019) and one of the first companies to sign up for the Valuable 500.

In 2017, the first Accessibility and Inclusion Plan was launched, outlining the ongoing commitment to disability inclusion for EY people and clients; we are making great inroads but acknowledge there is plenty to do and are silver members with the Australian Network on Disability to assist us with this. Additionally, the very popular Auslan@EY classes are running in multiple cities to teach basic Australian Sign Language and disability awareness skills.

LGBTIQ+ at EY

The EY global network group, Unity, supports LGBTI EY people and their straight allies to create an inclusive culture where LGBTI individuals can be their authentic selves at work.

EY Oceania Unity Leader, Gina Mills, won the Inspirational Role Model award at the 2018 New Zealand LGBTI Awards for her work in raising awareness and providing support in the LGBTI community.

EY continues to champion a focus on mental health for LGBTI youth across Australia, through the ongoing collaboration with organisations, as well as the contribution to national diverse sporting teams.

Cultural Diversity at EY

Our Cultural Diversity mentoring program is now in its third year and pairs culturally -diverse individuals with leaders to explore career and development opportunities.

Our flexible working policy allows EY people to substitute public holidays for days of cultural significance and cultural agility training is a key focus to improve the cultural capability of EY teams.

A day in the life of an Indigenous Intern

After completing his summer internship at EY, Phillip was offered a part-time role as part of the Technology Strategy & Transformation team whilst finishing his STEM degree. Phillip is currently finishing his Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) in Computer and Software Systems.

“Originally from Darwin, I moved to Brisbane to attend boarding school. Currently, I am studying a Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) in Computer and Software Systems. I started at EY through the Indigenous Internship Program and was lucky enough to obtain a position as a Consultant. 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. My EY Technology teams and the Indigenous Sector Services have been extremely supportive and accommodating. They not only understand my work, social and university commitments, but they respect them. The life of a Consultant is both challenging and rewarding. My advice to those who are considering applying would be to remain open, humble and don’t be so hard on yourself.”
