EY Empower - Technology Risk Graduate Programme 2022
About the Bright Network - EY Empower Programme
EY Empower is a new initiative developed in partnership with Bright Network, specifically designed to support those who come from traditionally under-represented groups in the industry.
If accepted on to the programme, you will be offered in-depth coaching and support throughout the rest of the EY recruitment process, to help you realise your full potential. This will be provided across a variety of formats, including group and 1-2-1 coaching sessions, and sign-posting to relevant upskilling tools and material.
You will also be able to skip part of the EY online portal stage (learning for a changing world).
EY Empower: Technology Risk Graduate Programme
Help organisations identify and manage their technology risks whilst simultaneously gaining skills to develop a career in professional services.

You’ll create an environment that allows client businesses to thrive. And you’ll build a pathway that progresses as you do. Here, your career is truly yours to build. Experience our world. Your way.
Technology is at the heart of most modern organisations. As well as opening a world of opportunities, technology exposes organisations to a variety of risks. We help our clients to identify and manage these risks to protect their stakeholders.
