What is the EY Advisory Consultant Program?

If you’ve graduated from university, or will do soon, our Advisory Consultant Program could be just the job for you. You’ll be part of a team working with interesting clients, while earning a salary. We’ll help you develop the things you’re naturally good at and learn new skills for your career, too.

In the first year, you’ll start with an intensive induction course to develop your core consulting skills and start building your networks. This will be followed by a blended learning curriculum, including knowledge sharing and networking sessions, technical and soft skills training, and learning events.

The diverse experience you’ll gain working in teams will help you make an informed decision about the direction your career will take; how far it takes you is down to your energy, commitment and performance.
