How’s it structured?

After kicking things off with an EY induction you’ll join a team and start working on real client projects – just like our graduates. Don’t forget that your colleagues can help and teach you too, so ask lots of questions.

If you do a great job you could be offered a place on one of our graduate programmes to come back to, when you finish university.
