EY-Parthenon is a global strategy consultancy. We are committed to using unconventional yet pragmatic thinking to deliver actionable strategies in order to help our clients navigate the ever-changing business landscape and solve complex business matters, driving change for tomorrow’s working world. For smart, nice and ambitious graduates, working at EY-Parthenon offers the opportunity to change how world-leading organisations do business.

Parthenon combined with EY in 2014. Together we have an ideal balance of strengths, broad executional capabilities and specialised expertise with intimate client relationships and global support networks.

We advise on a vast range of issues, such as core value propositions, competitive positioning, and growth strategies. EY-Parthenon employees are able to enjoy unparalleled contact with influential and highly experienced professionals within the firm, as well as with senior management at clients’ organisations across a multitude of sectors. The London office focuses on Diversified Industrial Products & Services, Education, Energy, Healthcare & Lifesciences, Private Equity, Retail, Consumer & Leisure and Technology, Media & Telecoms.

The Associate Programme

Associates participate as valued members of case teams helping clients address their most pressing strategic challenges. As team members they receive significant responsibility for identifying information sources, assembling data, performing analysis, structuring arguments, and developing presentations.

The first three weeks are devoted to training which provides a great opportunity to meet with colleagues from around the globe and develop the initial skill set required to be effective as an Associate. This is supplemented by an ongoing training programme which is run out of the London office, as well as mentoring to provide ongoing support and guidance. On returning to London the real work starts. EY-Parthenon has a case-team approach with a flexible structure; Associates are expected to take on responsibility for individual pieces of work as soon as they feel comfortable.

You will acquire valuable analytical, interpersonal and leadership skills that will not only make you effective at EY-Parthenon but will also equip you with expertise applicable to any career you choose to pursue.

As a result, EY-Parthenon employees are able to enjoy unparalleled contact with influential and highly experienced professionals within the firm, as well as with senior management at clients’ organisations. EY-Parthenon’s people build their careers in an environment that values opportunity, learning and fun.
