EY is excited to launch a new September 2018 intake of the Reconnect programme for career returners, providing a bridge for professionals re-entering the workplace after an extended career break.

EY is particularly interested to hear from candidates with experience in Advisory.

What is EY Reconnect?

The 12-week programme offers a supported route back into work with induction, coaching and mentoring for talented individuals who have had a career break of between 2 and 10 years – you will also have an instant peer group for additional support. This is an opportunity for you to reconnect with your career, your previous experience and expertise within business. You will join client teams in one of the business areas:

What background and past experience is needed for EY Reconnect?

You will have worked as a manager or above, with a background in professional services, consultancy, financial services, technology or related industry.

It’s not all about your technical experience. EY Reconnect offers the opportunity to join an inclusive and diverse workplace, where creativity and flexibility is encouraged. It’s not just something EY talks about; the skills you’ve acquired from your career break will be celebrated and valued as much as those from your professional CV.

What opportunities are available?

Dependent on the role you are applying to, EY Reconnect has opportunities in Birmingham, Bristol, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, London, Manchester, Newcastle and Reading. Please refer to the base locations for each of the roles:
