Why is EY supporting the Award?

EY provides a diverse & dynamic employment opportunity for talented & determined individuals, which I have encountered throughout my previous studies at UEA. I was interested in getting involved with the award as it is something that I would have been very interested in during my studies, and gives students the skills necessary to make a lasting first impression, which can make the difference in finding the next career step. The UEA Award is a great way for individuals to gain further experience as they look towards their future careers, and EY is a hugely exciting place to work and continue to develop.
