What is Transactions at EY?
Economies are fuelled by competitive organisations who buy, sell, merge or restructure parts of their business with others. Our job is to help them do all that while making more informed decisions and building better strategies.

How’s it structured?
We want you to get as much as you can from this apprenticeship, so after an EY induction, you’ll get straight to work on client projects. You can expect to be contributing to challenging projects, identifying and understanding not only clients’ financial and operational issues, but how their business and industry works too. You’ll build great networks and relationships, learn to make quick, practical decisions and work through problems decisively. As you progress through the programme you’ll get to do all this with more autonomy and responsibility.
As well as having lots of support from your team and in-house training opportunities, you’ll complete the CFAB qualification and then a full qualification through ICAEW. By the end of the programme you’ll have a lot of experience, a professional qualification and great network to continue building a career from.
