Applications to this programme are now closed. To be the first to find out about our 2020 opportunities, sign up now. 

What will you be doing?

  • Getting to know our clients and their industry
  • Learning different ways to analyse data so you can build better ways of working
  • Developing skills for untangling technical problems and sharing them in a non-technical way

Are you eligible to apply?

You’ll need a minimum of Level 2/GCSE (or equivalent) in English Language & Maths, three A-levels, 5 Highers or equivalent, and an honours degree (in a numbers-based subject like mathematics, computer science, statistics, engineering, economics or similar) by the time the programme starts. We’re also keen to meet people who are well-versed in Excel and either SAS, SQL, Python, R or VBA.


Professional qualifications

from a variety of institutes




Dependent on location, salaries start from £27,600 per year

How’s it structured?

After an EY induction, you’ll get straight to work on projects with a range of clients in different industries. They’ll involve all kinds of business problems so you’ll get the chance to develop both technical analytical skills as well as core consultancy skills.

Day-to-day, you could be performing data analyses, model building and validations, creating solution designs and more. Translating technical methodologies and findings into digestible information for non-technical audiences will also become part of your role, and you’ll polish up your presentation skills since you could be presenting work to clients.

Over the course of the programme, you’ll start studying for a professional qualification, have access to informal training opportunities and lots of support from your team, too.

Where could a consulting career take you?
