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.
