Introduction to EY Foundation

The EY Foundation is a charity and a company, limited by guarantee, established in 2014. We were founded by EY, the professional services firm, which continues to provide funding and donations to the charity under a multi-annual funding agreement.  We are governed by a board of trustees, who are supported by a number of committees and leadership and management teams. 


The EY Foundation helps young people, disadvantaged in the labour market, to fulfil their work potential. We are unique in our position as the link between employers and young people, having strong relationships with both. 


Our work involves designing, developing and running our own services: Smart Futures, Our Future and Accelerate, as well as raising independent funds to support new initiatives and reach more young people across the UK. We work with organisations from across all sectors, including commercial, not-for-profit, education and government.


As an independent charity we have to diversify and raise our own income through traditional fundraising, grants and, increasingly, through the development of our work with corporate partners.


EY Foundation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful applicant will need to undertake an Enhanced DBS check via the Disclosure and Barring service, where appropriate.


The role will be based in one of our Hubs in London or Glasgow. At the EY Foundation, we have a hybrid working model in which our staff work from the office at least one day per week or more days as per business needs.


At EY Foundation, we highly encourage all our staff members and secondees to volunteer for our internal activities and events regardless of their role within the Foundation and actively participate in the EY Foundation's broadly agenda.

Our roles

Within the Foundation we adopt flexible roles that reflect the dynamic nature of our charity and enable our people to learn, develop and grow their skills and open up career opportunities. This is part of our investment in you.


This role profile provides an outline of what will be involved in your role rather than an exhaustive list of duties. Both you and this role will naturally evolve.

Our values

In your role you will be expected to demonstrate or develop leadership competences based on the Foundation’s four key values. They are:

  • Growth mindset – increase our impact on more young people through dedication, innovation and hard work 
  • Empower people – everyone is given the opportunity to develop and to succeed
  • Courage – use new learning and diversity of thought to challenge the status quo, embracing lessons learned even if a project misses its targets
  • Collaboration – build relationships – internally and externally – to share ideas, embed an inclusive approach, and achieve bigger outcomes.


Our commitment to diversity and inclusion

The scale of the challenge to tackle racial inequality is huge but we are passionate in our determination to secure change – both for our organisation and the young people we serve. 

With over 80% of the young people we work with from Black, Asian or ethnic minority communities, our team and Board need to reflect the young people we support. 

In 2019, we made diversity and inclusion a strategic priority, with a focus on race and in 2020 we published eleven race commitments. This included 50% of our team and leadership team coming from the Black, Asian or ethnic minority communities by 2025. Specifically, it is our objective that 30% of our team and leadership team will come from the Black community. You can find out more here.
