Our teams specialise in a range of skills from those with existing programming expertise to those from an unrelated background but the desire to learn.

What type of work will I be doing?
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 any subject) by the time the programme starts.
We're looking for students that have a passion and interest in technology and/or those that have some experience of: SQL, Python, R, VBA, SPSS or Minitab and experience with databases, data analysis/manipulation and reporting.
Dependent on location, salaries start from £27,600 per year
How’s it structured?
After an EY induction, you’ll join your team in either Financial Services (FS) or UK & Ireland (UK&I) and jump straight into work on real client projects.
In FS, your work can range from advising clients to hands-on delivery of digitally enabled solutions – especially in the fields of data analytics, robotic process automation and digital risk management. You might also get to help clients with emerging technologies such as blockchain. And in UK&I, the sky’s the limit. From working as part of a bid team to redesigning processes and procedures or advising clients on the development and implementation of technology solutions, you’ll develop a huge mix of business and people skills.
You’ll have the opportunity to study for a CIMA foundation qualification in business accounting and a lot of informal training opportunities and support from colleagues within your team. Do a great job, and you could be promoted to Senior Consultant by the end of the programme.
