Ernst & Young removes university degree requirements from its recruitment policy

One of the world’s largest accountancy firm, Ernst & Young, will remove its policy of requiring a university degree from job applicants.

The reason they have cited is that there is “no evidence” that success at university correlates with future success in professional qualifications undertaken.

The company is the fifth biggest graduate recruiters in the UK, offering 200 graduate-level jobs each year.

As per the new policy of the firm, academic qualifications would no longer act as a “barrier to getting a foot in the door”.

Earlier this year, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) scrapped using UCAS points as entry criteria for its graduate scheme. The audit firm believes placing too much emphasis on the scores will mean employers may miss out on key talent from disadvantaged backgrounds, who can perform less well at school.
