About our programme

The EY Graduate Programme 2023 will be enrolling over 400 graduates next autumn across our five offices in Dublin, Limerick, Cork, Waterford and Galway, with the option of a hybrid model where you can also work from home.

We have built an environment that has a diverse and inclusive culture. We are committed to recruiting diverse talent in terms of background, experience, skillset and ethnicity and creating an environment that promotes diversity of thought, background and personality – in essence a place where our people can bring their whole self to work. As a result, we welcome applications from a huge variety of courses and disciplines, and not only business and accounting. We are looking for talented students to join us from areas such as technology, science, engineering, law, arts and humanities and many more.

We offer a world class career experience whereby you will get to work with Ireland’s leading indigenous entrepreneurial businesses as well as some of the world’s largest blue chip international organisations. You will work in lockstep with our clients to solve their most complex challenges and support them in areas such as sustainability, strategy, cyber, digital transformation, mergers and acquisitions, culture and organisational change.
