How’s it structured?

After an EY induction you’ll join your team in either Financial Services (FS) or UK & Ireland (UK&I). We’ll help you develop the skills to decipher how each client problem is different and to find innovative and sound ways of solving them. You’ll work across a range of industries including Banking & Capital Markets, Insurance and Wealth & Asset management in FS, and government and public services, energy, retail and telecommunications, media and technology, in UK&I.

In the first year you’ll get the opportunity to study for a CIMA certificate in Business Accounting and throughout the programme you’ll also have access to informal training and development resources and your team will also be on hand to support you. Since no two projects will be the same, we’ll coach and mentor you in a way that will prepare you for anything.

You'll be part of a large graduate community which is a great opportunity to build your network, participate in corporate sustainability events and develop your leadership skills.

By the time you finish, you can expect to be well on your way to becoming a Senior Consultant with the opportunity to build a specialism.
