EY has announced plans to offer 55,000 traineeships and 35,000 internships by 2020 across Europe as it also joins the Alliance for YOUth, an initiative through which leading businesses will help to address high levels of youth unemployment in many parts of Europe.

As part of our membership, EY also will become a signatory of the European Commission’s European Alliance for Apprenticeships, which promotes traineeship and apprenticeship schemes.

Signing the European Alliance for Apprenticeships pledge, EY’s EMEIA Managing Partner, Mark Otty says: “These commitments demonstrate the power of collaboration to develop high-impact solutions to youth unemployment, one of the most intractable economic and social challenges we face today. The Alliance for YOUth members will work hard to improve the skills, confidence and outlook of young people.”
