GLOBAL firm Ernst and Young visited Palmer’s College last week to present to business students interested in joining the EY School Leavers Programme. The firm hand picks a handful of College’s to promote the programme across the country and Palmer’s has been a chosen College for numerous years.
Hundreds of students attended the presentation which was delivered by EY graduate Justin Fay. Justin is already familiar with a number of students from Palmer’s who have been successfully selected to join the 5 year programme.
This year saw Brodie Plunkett secure a place onto the prestigious programme. At the end of the programme, Brodie will be a qualified to degree level and will have a permanent job secured.
Brodie, Associate at EY said: "I’m so lucky that EY came to Palmer’s to tell us about the programme as it opened up an amazing opportunity for myself I was previously unaware of. I decided to apply immediately and I completed a number of assessments and interviews prior to being offered a place. I was so excited when I was offered a place and I couldn’t be more grateful to the College and to my teachers who helped me throughout the process. I have very much enjoyed my start at EY and I look forward to continued success with this Global Company.
Mark Vinall, Principal of Palmer’s College said: “Preparing Palmer’s students for employment is a vital part of our mission and our immensely positive relationship with Ernst & Young is a key part of this strategy.”
As well as international companies coming in to recruit Palmer’s students the College has also been approached by local firms such as Accountancy firm Rowland Hall, who came in over the summer to recruit for their trainee position.
