EY has long since grown from its origin in accountancy and is now looking to hire a broad range of professionals to help it further provide for its clients.

EY is one of the largest professional services firms in the world and has a legacy that stretches back to the 19th century. While it began as an accounting firm, it has since evolved in keeping with the changing times. Now, it provides an array of services to a variety of clients around the globe.

As EY managing partner Frank O’Keeffe explained to us, potential applicants may not be aware of just how varied the opportunities available at EY are. O’Keeffe and his colleagues are keen to underline the fact that EY is a forward-thinking firm using the latest technologies, and needs forward-thinking recruits in turn.

We spoke to O’Keeffe about the recruitment process at EY and the type of people the company is hoping to attract.
