What is EY Reconnect?

EY Reconnect is a 12-week programme which offers a supported route back into work following a career break of between two and 10 years.

It’s 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’ll have worked at manager level or above, with a background in professional services, consultancy, financial services, technology or a related industry.

It’s not all about your technical experience. EY Reconnect is an opportunity to join an inclusive and diverse workplace where they encourage creativity and flexibility. 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?

The 2019 EY Reconnect programme offers opportunities in various locations throughout the UK, depending on the business area you’re applying to. Discover their office locations around the UK.
