New Ey Trainees Team Up With Jcg Eco Club For Sustainability Day At Durrell

With Environment and Education at the centre of EY’s strategy, the day at Durrell gave an insight into sustainability at a global level yet the opportunity to get involved with a grass roots project. Carl Howarth, Principal of JCG said: ‘This is a tremendous opportunity for our students to continue to improve their employability skills and develop further insight into sustainable living.  Not only are our students future leaders in business they are also human beings inhabiting a world which needs and deserves decision making focused on preserving our earth for future generations.  We are thankful to EY and Durrell for this insightful opportunity.’

Reflecting on the interaction between the trainees and JCG students, Jackie Hankin, HR Leader, EY commented: “Many students find it a little daunting joining the working world but by using opportunities like this it not only educates them on a subject of importance but it also allows them to form acquaintances and find out from our associates how they made their career choices and discuss the world of work so far.
