Ernst & Young Partners with AIESEC to Train Young Mozambicans

Ernst & Young (EY) signed, on Thursday, December 1, a memorandum of understanding with AIESEC – International Association of Economics and Business Science Students, at EY’s facilities in Maputo.

This partnership aims to develop and implement a set of programs linked to EY Ripples, a corporate responsibility project that, through the skills, knowledge and experience of Ernst & Young employees, aims to help and positively impact the society, so that everyone can have an equitable and sustainable future.

As part of this agreement, one of the three programs to be implemented will be “Spark”, a project aimed at young people aged 14 to 17. There will be lectures, assessments and conversations with professionals from various areas, so that young people feel inspired and motivated for the future. The high school teenagers will also have the opportunity to visit EY’s offices, where they will be able to follow the day-to-day activities of the consulting company’s several departments.

Thinking of university students and recent graduates in economics, management and engineering, this partnership will also launch the “Accelerate” program, aimed at young people between 20 and 25 years old. Those enrolled will have the opportunity to participate in training sessions in technical skills in their areas of expertise.

For Paulo Reis, managing partner of the EY office in Maputo, and also head of the audit department, it is important that companies and other entities monitor and play an active role in the process of insertion of young people into the labor market.

According to him, “this partnership with AIESEC will be an opportunity for young people to explore and develop their skills, in order to be better prepared for their first job”, stressing that “through this program we are betting on the professional training of young people, contributing to a promising career for all and for the country to have more qualified professionals”.

The third program to be developed will be the “Climate Ideation Clinics”, a project focused on climate change, one of the most discussed issues today. The main objective involves learning and identifying innovative solutions on climate change in EY’s sectors.

“We cannot ignore the problems associated with climate change.” “It is important that we circumvent this challenge by creating sustainability solutions and services,” Paulo Reis also mentioned.

Present in Mozambique since 2000, AIESEC is a global, non-governmental and non-profit organization led by young people, whose objective is to contribute to personal and professional development through leadership programs, internships and global exchange experiences.
