What made you choose EY?

I interned with EY in summer 2017 whilst I was at university which gave me a really good insight into the firm and the people working there. I then decided to apply for the graduate scheme. The internship gave me the opportunity to understand the different departments within the firm, which definitely helped me decide which path to take once I understood the aspects of the work behind the job role.

What is your next step?

My immediate goal is to focus on passing my ICAS exams and starting to shape my career over the next few years. In the long run I’d love to work abroad with EY which they make possible due to our global mobility program.
