Last chance to apply for the first Deaf Graduate Assessment Centre
Published: Mar 27th, 2017
A few months ago, Deaf Unity announced it’s partnership with global professional services firm, Ernst & Young (EY) to run an innovative mock Deaf Graduate Assessment Centre in London.
Taking place in London on 20 April 2017, this exciting event is a chance for deaf students and graduates to learn valuable skills to improve their career prospects and increase their chances of being successful at one of EY’s graduate assessment centres which take place every year. It will be fully accessible with BSL interpreters in attendance.
What the day will involve
The day will involve a series of exercises that will assess deaf people suitability for graduate schemes, and it will enable the participants to develop skills that will help them to succeed at EY’s graduate assessment centres.
What does Ernst & Young have to offer?
E&Y offers graduate career opportunities across Assurance, Consulting, Tax and Transactions, as well as in Technology, Law and Actuarial. It recruits students based on their strengths and potential, and fosters a working culture that gives employees of all abilities and backgrounds the support they need to thrive from the moment they join.
Amy Moody, a Student Recruitment Advisor for EY says: “It is really important that we are accessible in all aspects of our recruitment process and this exercise will really help us to ensure we have the correct support processes in place.
“We want all students to understand that a career at EY is an opportunity they can explore and that it is a very supportive environment to kick-start their career.”
