Could you answer the questions of tomorrow, today?

As technology transforms the way we all live and work, your success will be defined by your mindset as well as your skillset.

The right mindset puts you in control of your growth, career path and future as you continue to learn and acquire new skills. Your curiosity, open-mindedness and enthusiasm will help to shape your future and ours.

Here at EY, you'll focus your intelligence and imagination on the most crucial, complex issues facing business, government, and society today. With access to on-demand learning, formal training, coaching and real time feedback to help shape your career and prepare you for the future.

We bring extraordinary people, like you, together to build a better working world.

The exceptional EY experience. It's yours to build.

As an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, when you join EY you will get to work with experienced professionals who'll guide you to be your best. You will have the opportunity to learn from an Indigenous mentor and join our Indigenous staff network.

As you progress in your career, you may decide that you would like to join our national Indigenous Sector Practice which operates across all service lines. This is a purpose-led offering working with a diverse range of clients to develop business, education and employment opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities and to advocate for a level playing field socially and economically.

You'll get to work with experienced professionals who'll guide you to be your best. After all, we want to help you be the best you can be, because when you shine, we do too.

What degree, which service line?
