"This year we had a great collaboration with RTU Riga Business School as we worked together and helped prepare study course for students. It is a great pleasure to be chosen as the RBS Employer of the Year. We are happy that RBS students and graduates choose EY as their place of work and internship. In EY people are at the heart of our business and we are trying to give our employees the best working experience there could possibly be. Our goal is to be the most favored employer and right now that is one of our Vision 2020 ambitions. EY brings in the very best people across all the fields we work in and that’s why it is a great place for internship and where to start your career. While working in EY, you can learn from great and experienced leaders, expand your knowledge and develop your skills. Learning is a key aspect of how we’re helping our people develop future-focused skills so they can achieve their career aspirations. EY grows together with its employees and we are pleased to give students the opportunity to work with us and hope that many more students from RTU Riga Business School will choose EY as a place where they can find a great job, get an unforgettable experience, meet great people and enjoy working in a company that is the leading professional services company in the Baltic States."
