About EY

EY are a global leader in assurance, tax, transaction and advisory services, working with approximately 100,000 clients worldwide, ranging from small, privately owned companies and global household names.

With roots stretching back to 1903, EY now spans over 27 UK offices.

The company’s ultimate aim is to be the leading global professional services organisation by 2020. This includes leading growth and competitive earnings, sufficient enough to attract and retain world-class talent, as well as maintaining strong and positive relationships with their stakeholders.

As part of their core values, EY look for people who demonstrate integrity and respect; people with energy, enthusiasm and the courage to lead; and people who build relationships based on doing the right thing.

The company is led by Chief Executive Officer Steve Varley, who likes to engage directly with employees on a regular basis. Neither he, nor his Regional Leadership Team, sit in offices - instead they share space in open-plan office along with other staff.
