We make sure that businesses are protected from risks that can affect their reputation and performance. As external auditors we help companies and governments publish accurate financial accounts others can rely on – so we can build a better working world.
You’ll need a minimum of Level 2/GCSE (or equivalent) in English Language & Maths, and three A-levels, 5 Highers or equivalent. You'll also be studying for an honours degree (in any subject) that includes a one-year placement and you’re in your penultimate year of university.
Your year starts with an EY induction and then you’ll join teams, working on real client projects. You’ll also start working towards the first year of a professional qualification in chartered accountancy with Institute of Chartered Accountancy Scotland (ICAS) – and you’ll be part of the EY community, with a buddy to help guide you. They’ll be your first point of call for practical help and guidance. We also provide coaching so you always have access to impartial advice, opportunities and ongoing advice.
By the end of the placement, you’ll have a head start on those accountancy qualifications and big ideas about how you could be leading the client projects you’ve been part of. Plus, you’ll have learned a lot from your colleagues and growing network. Best of all, if you do a great job you may be offered a place on the Assurance graduate programme.
Starting out in assurance requires dedication, hard work and long hours, but the knowledge and experience you’ll gain will set you on a fulfilling career path.
Wherever you are on your career journey, EY will help you keep learning, evolving and building the future that’s right for you.
As a professional services firm, we help organisations make better decisions about business, finance and technology. In a fast-changing world, it’s an exciting place to be.
