Valentin's EY road to success
Tell us a bit about yourself.
My name is Valentin and I work within the FSO Tax team in EY’s Stockholm office, specializing in indirect tax issues related to the financial sector. Originally from France, I moved to Sweden in 2015 to study the International Tax Law Program at the University of Uppsala. After university I joined EY Sweden full-time in December 2016 working within the host group (i.e. non-FSO) before joining FSO at the beginning of July 2018.
Why did you choose EY?
I first experienced life at EY during my short internship in the spring of 2016 at the Stockholm office. Organized by the university of Uppsala my internship lasted for two weeks. Although I was only there for a short time. I immediately gelled with the team I now work with as they are all very diverse, inclusive and friendly people. A few months later, the Stockholm office was hiring new junior consultants and it felt like the right time to move and begin my professional career.
Being from another EU country, what is it like to work in the Nordics?
Coming from France and having lived in Sweden for only a few years, I really appreciate how everyone is easy to reach. Regardless of rank or job title, everyone is treated equally and their opinion is heard. In the Nordics there is also a great tolerance towards flexible working, so long that the day is structured and work is done to a high standard.
What do you like most about your role?
In Stockholm’s financial services team I like how the type of work I do is varied due to our diverse client base, each of them with unique requirements. Working within EY’s financial services team has allowed me to develop specialized skills and deepen my subject knowledge of the subject.
Tell us more about the culture at EY.
I think we are really encouraged to keep a healthy balance of professionalism and knowledge while also showing our true personality. I think EY encourages diversity and maintains well balanced teams, which is the key to both better work and employee happiness.
