About EY
EY exists to build a better working world, helping to create long-term value for clients, people and society and build trust in the capital markets. 

Enabled by data and technology, diverse EY teams in over 150 countries provide trust through assurance and help clients grow, transform, and operate.

Working across assurance, consulting, law, strategy, tax and transactions, EY teams ask better questions to find new answers to the complex issues facing our world today.

About EMEIA Public Policy 

The EMEIA Public Policy team, based in three different locations across Europe (Brussels, Berlin and London), helps to enhance EY’s brand, reputation and license to operate while supporting EY client teams in the market by focusing on EU public policy and regulatory issues that affect our business, our profession and the broader capital markets. 


This involves developing relationships with policy makers, regulators, trade associations, investors, and professional bodies as well as leading on many areas of public policy. In so doing, we aim to better articulate the value that EY can bring to the EU institutions and thereby earn their trust.


The EMEIA Public Policy team is responsible for monitoring and engaging in regulatory and public policy affairs at European and EMEIA levels. 


Your key responsibilities 
The intern’s activities will be focused on the evolution of policy and regulatory developments at the European level, with a particular emphasis on the policy developments resulting from the European Institutions and the relevant stakeholder community in the EU. The intern will be involved in the following areas:  


  • Leading on the development and drafting of internal and external communications;  
  • Monitoring and analyzing EU legislative developments;
  • Representing EY at events and reporting on conferences; 
  • Providing ad hoc support to the EMEIA Public Policy Team for specific projects.

What we look for 

  • You have an internship agreement from a university or you are an EU student with a permit to work in Belgium;
  • You are available as from early/mid-May 2023 for 6-7 months to work in our office in Brussels; 
  • Strong interests in public policy, especially in EU policy;
  • Good communication skills, including research and writing skills;
  • Positive attitude to work and team spirit;
  • Fluency in written and spoken English, another European language is a bonus;
  • Good computer skills (Microsoft Office Package);
  • A relevant bachelor’s degree, as a minimum qualification. 


Our offer

  • You will join a young, dynamic team, genuinely passionate about its work, within a leading global professional services firm;
  • You get an entrepreneur facing experience as from day 1;
  • This is a full-time paid internship (in the case your internship is not an unpaid mandatory internship).

We are proud of our flexible work arrangements, and we support you to build a successful career and deliver excellent client services, without sacrificing your personal priorities. While our client-facing profession might regularly require working at client sites, our extended offices network throughout Belgium offers you a comfortable and appropriate choice of workplace.
