with ICAEW in England
Up to £21,750
Dependent on location, salaries up to £21,750 per year
How’s it structured?
Following an EY induction, you can expect to jump straight into work on real client projects. You’ll be developing your core consulting skills, learning EY’s auditing methodology and helping clients feel confident about the quality of their data and IT security controls. Taking on genuine responsibilities is one of the best ways to learn and you’ll have enough support throughout so that by your second year, you’ll be able to start coaching others.
As well as in-house training and development opportunities, we’ll also give you time to study for your chartered accountancy qualification with the ICAEW. All this considered, you’ll progress in your career a lot faster than your university-going friends, gain relevant experience and professional qualifications, and a great network of peers to continue building your career.
