He kōrero mō mātou | About us

Within Aotearoa, EY operates from three main locations, Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch and serves clients throughout the country, Oceania, and globally. 

EY Tahi is a stand-alone, kaupapa Māori, member firm of EY global – a ‘firm within a firm’. We were established in 2014 to compliment EY and provide the ‘best of both worlds’ in terms of global strength, and indigenous creativity and application. 


Throughout the programme, you’ll hit the ground running with dedicated on-the-job training, coaching and technology onboarding. You’ll work alongside EY professionals on real clients – right now. You’ll get the opportunity to be immersed in EY culture, network with EY people, and experience the transformative work done for EY clients. Plus, the best bit is, if you impress us, we’ll offer you a permanent position after you graduate.
