EY looking to hire hundreds of neurodivergent employees

Posted by on Monday, March 8, 2021 in News.

Ernst & Young (EY) has made the exciting decision to add hundreds of neurodivergent employees to their staff over the next few years. They are specifically recruiting individuals with a background in technology, coding or data analysis. Applicants are being screened on a rolling basis, and interested parties are encouraged to apply now!

EY’s Nashville office is home to one of the company’s seven Neurodiversity Centers of Excellence (NCoEs); the others are currently located in Philadelphia, Chicago, Dallas, Boston, San Jose and Toronto. In each of these locations, people with neurodivergent conditions like autism, ADHD, and dyslexia are being recruited for their in-demand skills. NCoE managers are specifically trained to empower and accommodate neurodivergent people in a work setting.

Adding this often-overlooked talent pool to the company has been so beneficial that EY recently announced their NCoEs will undergo a dramatic expansion. Each location will add a significant number of jobs, including the one right here in Nashville. Applicants need only to have some experience in data, tech, or coding. There is no degree requirement, or mandated years of work experience. EY’s unique NCoE hiring process evaluates skill and potential, placing a premium on ability over past jobs or social connections. 

Employees of the NCoEs are paid a competitive salary, and people of all races, ethnicities, genders, and abilities are encouraged to pursue this opportunity. To apply, email Frist Center Associate Director Dave Caudel ( with a brief personal statement explaining interest in the open positions. He will provide sample resumes and connect applicants to EY staff. Ernst & Young looks forward to hearing from you.

The Frist Center for Autism and Innovation at the Vanderbilt University School of Engineering brings engineers, business scholars, and disabilities researchers together with experts in neuroscience and education to understand, maximize, and promote neurodiverse talent. From a strengths-based – as opposed to deficit-based – understanding of autism and neurodiversity, the center values the creation of opportunities, such as our relationship with EY, for innovation in technology and in workplace practices.
