EY Reconnect – Transactions Financial Services

Applications are now closed

EY, one of the leading international professional services firms, is now inviting candidates with a Transactions background to apply for their newly launched career returner programme, EY Reconnect. Women Returners is partnering with EY to provide a route back into business for talented individuals at Manager level and above, with varied, strong commercial backgrounds in Financial Services. The programme is designed for people who have been on a career break for between 2 and 10 years.

What are they offering?

The Transactions team provides a great opportunity to join a growing successful team. EY will bring you into their business for a paid period of 12 weeks, starting in September 2016. You will work on client projects, drawing from your previous experience, skills and knowledge; at the end of the programme you will have the opportunity to apply to join EY permanently. You will be given support in this role to succeed, with a thorough induction, coaching from Women Returners, and mentoring. EY Reconnect offers a cross-service line returner programme which provides the opportunity for participants to interact and build relationships with like-minded people in other areas of the business.

Who are they looking for?

They particularly welcome applications from individuals who have previously worked in Financial Services – banking, insurance asset management or similar – with experience in one or more of the following:

  • Business modelling
  • Valuations
  • Financial, operational, IT or commercial due diligence
  • Bank restructuring
  • M&A
  • IPO/Capital Markets
  • Transaction strategy

You will be keen to re-start your professional life and to join a multi-cultural, inclusive and diverse workplace where creativity and flexibility is encouraged and where both team work and independent work are part of how they work.

Why EY?

EY is investing heavily to be the employer of choice in professional services. They can offer you a range of experiences and assignments that will inspire your professional development and help you move closer to your long-term goals.

EY is one of the pioneers of flexible working practices and have championed gender diversity for many years. Along with the Reconnect programme, they also have such initiatives as Women.Fast Forward where they have pledged to accelerate the global gender parity clock. They have a range of well established and thriving networks across the business including the EY Parents’ Network, EY Women’s Network and the Disability Network, and they are recognised publicly as a Social Mobility Champion.
