2023 CBS - Communications Internship - Toronto Campus Starts



What if we didn’t focus on who you are now, but who you could become?


Here at EY, you’ll have the chance to build a truly exceptional experience. We’ll empower you with the latest technology, surround you with high-performing teams, and provide the global scale and diverse and inclusive culture you need to discover your full potential. Through our coaching and training programs, you’ll develop the skillsets you need to stay relevant today and, in the future, – all while building a network of colleagues, mentors, and leaders who will be on the journey with you at EY and beyond.


The exceptional EY experience. It's yours to build.


The opportunity: your next adventure awaits


Authentic and dynamic storytelling is critical to engaging our employees, customers, media and the public at large. We have a lot of stories to tell at EY, and we need your help to tell them. As a Communications Intern on the National Communications & Engagement Team, you’ll help to uphold the reputation, relationships and revenue generation of EY through strategic internal and external communications across all areas of our business.


Working in collaboration with our Public Relations and Communications teams, you’ll develop materials to support national campaigns, programs and leaders — from press releases, media pitches and social media copy to internal news stories, newsletters and more. You’ll also gain exposure to various communications platforms and tools to build your know-how around media monitoring, competitive intelligence and reporting metrics.


An effective communications strategy considers all audiences. You’ll see just how external and internal communications walk hand-in-hand to deliver better results — and how they intersect with Brand and Marketing functions in a global, multidisciplinary organization.  


What we look for

  • You are a natural-born communicator with a passion for writing, a love of the editing process and an appetite to grow your experience writing across different mediums.
  • You have a can-do attitude and thrive in a fast-paced environment. You don’t mind rolling up your sleeves to support the team and can easily pivot from project to project.
  • You are interested in being challenged and stretching your knowledge of market and industry trends, getting involved in communications across a diverse portfolio of topics.

  • Qualifications:
    • Must be returning to school in the fall.
