EY Announce Dozens More Graduate Jobs In Belfast

Professional services firm EY has announced plans to create dozens more graduate jobs in Belfast next year.

Over half of the 136 jobs that EY will be recruiting for in Belfast will be offered to graduates as part of their October 2020 intake, with the other vacancies to be allocated to candidates who already have more extensive hands-on experience of the roles.

The recruitment drive is part of a wider campaign by EY to create 600 new vacancies across the island of Ireland. Once all of the new Irish jobs have been filled over the next twelve months, EY will employ more than 3,500 people across the whole of Ireland, with around 650 in the north alone.

Shining a light on the wide diversity of roles on offer within the company, Frank O'Keeffe, a managing partner at EY, said: “While there is still huge demand for roles in our traditional service areas of tax, audit, consultancy and corporate finance, we are also now recruiting technology specialists, robotics and AI engineers and data scientists along with other highly-specialised skill sets.”

“Our clients are turning to us to support them on all of their strategic priorities including climate change, talent, digital disruption, global tax planning and heightened levels of assurance,” added Mr O'Keeffe.

Michael Hall, another managing partner at EY, also commented, saying: “Our plans to create these new roles over the coming months reflects our continuing strong growth and ongoing commitment to Northern Ireland.”

“The key for our clients is to remain flexible and agile through the coming months and we're here to support all of them every step of the way. Today's business environment requires a new diversity of skills and thought. These new roles will help us to continue offering our clients exceptional service into the future.”

Welcoming the announcement by EY, Taoiseach (the Irish Prime Minister) Leo Varadkar, said: “These are highly skilled jobs that will be created across six cities over the next year. It's super that more than half of the jobs will go to new graduates, providing young people with a great start to their career straight out of college.”
