Assurance Industrial Placement

About the programme 

As a member of our team, you’ll experience the EY digital audit and get face-to-face exposure to big clients and the unique challenges they face. Although Audit and Assurance has its roots in accountancy, that’s just the beginning of the story. Forget endless number crunching – you’ll also be working with EY clients, reviewing strategy, assessing risk, forecasting growth and more.  

This is your opportunity to give businesses, from start-ups to governments, confidence in how they manage their accounts. One day, you could be on site with a client, building key relationships, the next, you could be crafting long-lasting business strategies. It’s a dynamic programme that prepares you for your future. And enables you to sit at the very cutting edge of business – helping us build a better world as you build a varied career.

What will you be doing?

  • Getting to know our clients, their businesses and how they work.
  • Testing checks and balances to ensure they work how they’re supposed to.
  • Analysing the data that goes into a financial statement to make sure it is true and fair.
  • Helping businesses publish reliable financial accounts as you lay the foundations for your career.
  • Using hybrid working to spend time on client sites, in the office and at home
  • Having a dedicated careers counsellor throughout the programme to help you during busier seasons, development and learning

Programme duration - One year placement

Qualification/s you will gain - ICAEW in England and ICAS in Scotland. 

Are you eligible to apply? 

If you’re in your penultimate year at university and your course includes a placement year, this programme is for you. We operate an open access policy, meaning we don’t screen out applications on your academic performance alone. You will, however, need to be working towards an honour’s degree in any subject, and have a minimum of grade 4/C GCSE (or equivalent) in English Language and Maths and three A-levels/Five Highers (or equivalent).

We welcome applications from all academic backgrounds and are looking for people who will succeed at EY today and tomorrow. That's why, through our recruitment process, your academic performance will be considered against your online assessment scores to determine your suitability for an EY role. We’re also proud to partner with RARE recruitment, so that your application can be processed in the context of your socio-economic background.
