Making the most of your time at University

In the Recruitment section there is a wealth of information about completing applications forms, online tests, and the various stages in the recruitment. Whilst the Disability section provides advice on how to manage your disability during the recruitment process including information on how to inform an employer of what you require and referring to your disability during an interview.
Managing Your Disability
The Organisations section is where you can find out about various organisations, the opportunities they offer and their individual approach to disability.
Profiles / Stories
It’s always great to hear from those who have been successful.
This section profiles many individuals, working across different industries, at various stages of their careers. Their interviews demonstrate that is possible to have a successful career regardless of whether or not you have a disability. They also illustrate the adjustments that can be made in the workplace.

By Lucy Wilton, Graduate Employer Brand Manager for UK&I at EY.
Everything that we do at EY has a commercial goal in mind. It’s no good theorising for our clients if we can’t show them how it will work in practice.
Building commercial awareness takes time and on-the-job experience. But having some understanding of the business world, and being able to look at situations from a commercial perspective, will strengthen your position.
Developing a commercial awareness can make you a better fit for potential employers. Taking an interest in the business world will show employers that you can bring something valuable to their organisation - but more importantly you will really need it when you work with clients. Here are some tips on how to broaden your awareness of the business world:
Business skills are essential for any career - whether you want to be a banker, a journalist or a charity worker. In fact, many employers see them as a key asset, so they're well worth developing.
As well as having a keen interest in commercial awareness, it’s important for businesses to bring in people from a diverse background. At EY, we understand that every individual has equally individual requirements – and as an employer, we’ll only tap into our people’s very performance if we embrace and enable these differences.
Ben joined EY as a Graduate nine years ago and now co-chairs EY’s Deaf and Hard of Hearing Network which sits under the umbrella of Ability EY, the Firm’s overarching disability network. “I’ve found EY to be very accommodating, providing support whenever I’ve needed it. I have sign language interpreters who come with me when I attend training courses and a palantypist who converts speech to text during conference calls and other meetings which helps me to participate.”
On our website, we have a whole section dedicated to commerciality and its importance in the recruitment process. Find out more: http://ukcareers.ey.com/graduates/career-tips/key-skills/commerciality/
