Meg Hocquard  - Consultant, Business Consulting at EY
My name is Meg Hocquard, and I joined EY Christchurch in September 2021. I am part of the Consulting team in Christchurch, and more specifically a part of Business Consulting. I joined EY as a graduate and started working early before the regular graduate intake in March 2022. 

What does a typical workday look like for you?
On a typical day, I come into the office and decide where I am going to sit for the day. Hot-desking means I can sit anywhere depending on how I am feeling and what I need to get done. I check my emails and calendar first, and often make myself a coffee or pop down to the local café for a quick takeaway. Working with global teams and in a global organisation means emails are received at all times of the day and night. From there, my day consists of reaching key project milestones to meet client service targets. I have regular meetings with my team, and we work together to balance client recommendations. My work consists of client data and working with this data in Excel and various other software that analyse large data sets. When it comes time to take a break, the lunch area is a great way to switch off and catch up with colleagues. Everyone loves to catch up and have a chat no matter what part of the company they are in, which is amazing. 

Describe the culture at EY
EY is an amazing place to work. The culture is very welcoming, which makes it a great environment to be in from day one. Everyone is willing to help and there is plenty of support. The people are all like-minded and want to achieve the collective purpose of building a better working world. At the same time, there is so much diversity, meaning there is so much to learn. EY supports you in endeavours you might choose to take outside of work, and it’s a company all about its people. I have felt valued and supported from the start. Everyone has the flexibility to work from home or the office, which helps immensely with a work/life balance.

What is one highlight from your experience to date?

The exposure to the people within EY and the experiences you gain. The opportunities are endless and EY really cares about matching your work to what you are interested in, which is amazing.

What is your advice for incoming graduates and interns?

Make sure you are trying to find your passion and follow that passion. When you do what you are passionate about, it will make everything so much more enjoyable.


Max Beckert - Senior consultant, Corporate Tax at EY


My name is Max Beckert, and I am a Senior Consultant in the Tax service line, working in the Corporate Tax sub-service line. I work in the Christchurch office and have been with EY for almost three years exactly. I studied at the University of Canterbury, completing a double degree in LLB (Hons) and BCom, major in Tax and Accounting. Since joining EY, I have completed the EY Diploma in Taxation, been admitted as a Barrister and Solicitor of the High Court and will have finished my Chartered Accountancy qualifications in May.

What does a typical workday look like for you?

 My ‘typical’ workday tends to be seasonal. This means that from January to March, the focus for our team is tax compliance (i.e. income tax returns). From April through to October, we focus on tax provisions for statutory reporting purposes. Throughout the year, we have regular ad-hoc tax advisory work, including Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A), tax due diligence, ad-hoc requests and queries from clients, structuring, distributions to shareholders, etc. Most days, I start my morning by clearing emails and checking my meetings and commitments for the day. I usually grab a coffee and catch up with some colleagues before getting stuck into some work. I usually have various meetings throughout my day both internally and with clients, During my lunch break, I sometimes go for a run around the park or walk around the CBD. This is followed by client work in the afternoon until it's time to go home.

What is one highlight from your experience to date?

One major highlight for me was the opportunity to attend the International Intern Leadership Conference hosted at Disney World in Orlando, Florida. I was the NZ representative along with six Australian representatives (one from each Australian office) who travelled to America to attend the conference. The conference hosted 3,000 interns from across the global EY network where we had the opportunity to network, listen to inspiring keynote speakers and meet some of the Executive Leadership Team. In addition, we got to go to Disney World, attended large gala dinners and other social functions. It was a mind-blowing experience.

What is your advice for incoming graduates and interns?

Your career path is seldom linear. Make the most of any opportunity presented to you, but more importantly, put yourself forward for potential opportunities. Be an active listener and never be afraid to ask questions.   


Karishma Ranchhod  - Associate | Assurance 
Kia ora! My name is Karishma Ranchhod and I am an Assurance Associate at EY in the Auckland office. I joined the Audit Service Line as a Graduate in March 2021, following an internship in Summer 2019/2020. I studied a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Accounting, Finance and Commercial Law, and a Bachelor of Health Science majoring in Population Health at the University of Auckland. 

What does a typical workday look like for you? 
Audit work at EY includes understanding business processes, identifying improvements, evaluating controls, reviewing accounting policies and procedures, and testing significant account balances. However, each day is very different, whether that be through the client or industry you might be working on, the account you are assigned, the test you are performing or the audit team you are working with. Variety in my work, and an opportunity to continuously learn is something that keeps me motivated and engaged in Audit. 

What is the culture like at EY? 
EY’s culture is very much people-focused and a there is a very positive and inclusive atmosphere. The people at EY are always incredibly warm, friendly, approachable and facilitate personal growth and development with open communication which is something I rate highly in a prospective employer. A good work-life balance is always a work in progress. On some days we might prioritise more work and on others we might put more energy into aspects of our personal lives. Over the last few months, I’ve learned that balance is achieved over time and not so much on a daily basis. Understanding and agreeing priorities whilst also respecting your time is something you learn relatively quickly in the working environment. EY holds numerous social events, well-being activities, personal development workshops and encourage flexible working arrangements to support their employees maintain a healthy work-life balance. 

What is one highlight from your experience to date? 
One highlight from my experience at EY to date was no doubt our Volunteer Day. EY provides each employee two days annually to spend giving back to the community which is a great way to promote corporate social responsibility. For our Volunteer Day, a group of Graduates came together to help at a local primary school for the day. Some of us were reorganizing library books, while others were gardening or maintaining school grounds. Volunteer Days are a great team building activity and a way to break up our work schedules, while simultaneously making a meaningful difference in our communities. 

What would your tips be for incoming graduates and interns?
  • Ask questions. No question is silly. It is more efficient to ask and do your work correctly the first time.
  • Take ownership of your work, be accountable and show a willingness to learn in order to make a valuable contribution to the audit team.
  • Participate in the additional activities EY offers e.g. Netball, Toastmasters, Social Club. It is a great way to meet new people inside and outside of your service line, step outside of your comfort zone and most importantly to enjoy your experience with EY.

Tips from our recruiters:

What degree do I need to join EY?
At EY, a lot of what we do doesn’t require a specific degree, so our applicants can be quite diverse. That’s why we like to see a person’s extracurricular activities on their resume, whether they’ve done any volunteer work or what sports teams they’re part of for example. We’re hiring you as a person, so any experiences you’ve had outside your studies provide a good gauge of who you are.
Marion D'Cruz - Campus Recruitment Senior Consultant, Auckland

How can I learn more about EY?

If you’re interested in a company, follow them on social media. Sign up to professional network platforms, connect with them, make sure you’re across all their events. At EY we hold a huge number of networking events where you have the opportunity to get an understanding of who we are as an organisation and where you might fit in. Every event is different, so you’ll be able to find one that suits you.
Emma Byrt - Campus Recruitment Senior Consultant, Auckland

How can I stand out in a job interview?

80% of an interview’s success comes down to preparation. If you have some examples prepared and questions ready to ask about the role, you’ll do so much better. At EY we’re all about asking better questions, so if someone comes into an interview without anything to ask us at the end, we’d really question how engaged they were. If we can see an applicant has taken the time to research the company and understands our values, it really makes them stand out.
Marion D'Cruz - Campus Recruitment Senior Consultant, Auckland

There's something for everyone, ranging from movie nights, food fests, wine-tastings, a harbour cruise, the annual ball or trivia night (just for starters).
Be rewarded
We’ll reward you for your work and your commitment. Here are just some of the benefits you’ll enjoy during your first few years — and beyond:
Life leave
The ability to take between 6-12 weeks of self-funded leave in one or two solid blocks of time.
Temporary part-time
Adopting a part-time arrangement for up to 3 months in length.
Term time working
A part-time arrangement with an income similar to a 4-day week, using self-funded leave. This would allow people to work full-time during school term times, but not work during school holidays.
These options join existing options of permanent part-time, job share, career breaks and FLEX-leave (purchased leave).
Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
The EAP provides confidential, free counselling support to EY people and their immediate families to help them work through personal or work related challenges in a positive way. EY's EAP also offers proactive support across financial, legal, dietician and wellbeing coaching services.
Health and Wellbeing
The my WELLBEING digital app and hub provides a one-stop-shop for EY wellbeing tools, resources, tips and events. From sleep and mindfulness guides, financial wellness support, seminars, challenges and more, our compressible wellbeing offering is here to support you at every stage of the journey.
Flexibility
We aim to create a work environment around the world that enables flexible working and supports the health and wellbeing of our people. By providing our people with current technology and encouraging more flexible working, we're enabling them to work at the office, in transit, at home or from client sites. 

The focus on diversity and inclusiveness is integral to how EY teams serve EY clients, develop EY people and play a leadership role in our communities. Enabling EY people to bring their whole selves to work, sets EY apart from competitors and attracts and retains talent.
Gender
Our Gender Inclusion Network is for EY people of all genders and provides opportunities for members to learn and expand their networks by bringing everyone into the conversation to share different perspectives on gender in the workplace.

We offer the opportunity to take paid parental leave on a part-time/flexible basis in order to facilitate more male employees to access their leave. Parental Leave is also available to care for a new child through adoption, surrogacy arrangement, long term or permanent foster care, Home for Life and Whāngai, grandparents. All parents are supported through the transition to parenthood and return-to-work process, through access to mentoring and a digital coaching platform.
Disability 
Ability is an EY network for allies who support disability inclusion across the workplace and communities, those who care for a person with a disability and EY people living with a disability. It aims to elevate disability inclusion on all agendas and ensure accessibility at EY, recognising the contribution all EY people make to the working world.
We are proud at EY to be one of the 4% of organisations across the globe who include disability in the EY diversity agenda (World Economic Forum 2019) and one of the first companies to sign up to the Valuable 500.
In 2017, the first Accessibility and Inclusion Plan was launched, outlining the ongoing commitment to disability inclusion for EY people and clients; we are making great inroads but acknowledge there is plenty to do.
LGBTI
The EY global network group, Unity, supports LGBTI EY people and their straight allies to create an inclusive culture where LGBTI individuals can be their authentic selves at work.
EY Oceania Unity Leader, Gina Mills, won the 2018 Inspirational Role Model award and the 2021 Network Leader of the Year award at the New Zealand LGBTQ Inclusion Awards for her work in raising awareness and providing support in the LGBTI community.
EY continues to champion a focus on mental health for LGBTI youth across Oceania, through the ongoing collaboration with organisations, as well as the contribution to national diverse sporting teams.
Cultural Diversity
CD@EY, supports culturally diverse and emerging leaders to realise their potential by fostering two-way dialogue and knowledge sharing between professionals of different heritages and faiths. Our Cultural Diversity mentoring programme is now in its third year and pairs culturally diverse individuals with leaders to explore career and development opportunities.
Our flexible working policy allows EY people to substitute public holidays for days of cultural significance and cultural agility training is a key focus to improve the cultural capability of EY teams.
Māori & Pasifika
For EY New Zealand, our Māori inclusion strategy is driven by EY Tahi, a standalone, member firm of EY – an indigenous. EY Tahi’s kaupapa (purpose) is ‘Hāpaitia te iwi Māori, kia puāwai a pito mata’ meaning that its singular focus is to achieve Māori success.
Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori
In September 2018 and 2019, the New Zealand offices recognised Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori (Māori language week) with a series of challenges designed to increase the use of Te Reo Māori in everyday life, including learning basic greetings, place names, and how to order a coffee in te reo Māori  (Māori language).
Kōrero mai ki EY
Following on from Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori 2018, a te reo Māori course called Kōrero mai ki EY was run  for the second year at the Wellington and Auckland offices. Learning outcomes included: basics of tikanga (Māori customs and protocols), correct pronunciation, basic greetings and introductions, and a waiata (song) and karakia (chant/prayer).
Matariki
New Zealand offices celebrate Matariki (Māori New Year) and in 2019 a special celebration was held in the Christchurch office, through the sharing of Māori food and Māori produced beverages with Selwyn Hayes, EY Tahi Managing Partner in attendance.
Pōwhiri & mihi whakatau
EY Tahi continued the incorporation of tikanga Māori (Māori customs and protocols) into the welcome of EY New Zealand interns and graduates through the delivery of pōwhiri or mihi whakatau (traditional Māori welcome). A Pōwhiri and mihi whakatau is a culturally appropriate way of welcoming manuhiri (visitors) by tangata whenua (home people e.g. EY people) and removes the tapu (sacredness) surrounding manuhiri so that they become one with EY people.
