Are you at university and thinking about your next steps? Join the Assurance Graduate Programme at EY and learn how we help to protect the reputation of businesses around the globe as you work towards becoming a chartered accountant.

What is the Assurance Graduate Programme? This is a three-year paid graduate programme in which you’ll learn to help companies and governments publish accurate financial accounts others can rely on — all while developing your skills through hands-on work and study.

You will

  • Make an impact from your very first day with us as you start to develop the skills you need to grow in your career
  • Get to know our clients’ businesses by learning how they work
  • Test business controls to make sure they work as they should
  • Carry out independent assessments of financial information to make sure financial statements are true and fair
  • Work from home, in the office and on-site with your clients.

What are the benefits?

This programme will allow you to become part of our exciting company culture. This exposure to different businesses will open up many more opportunities within EY and beyond. Before you know it, you’ll be working on audits for clients, getting a team together, spotting strategic opportunities and building the foundations for a career in business.

Throughout the programme, you’ll have access to an EY buddy, careers counsellor and apprenticeship coach to help you settle in — and once you have, you can take part in further training programmes, earning EY Badges for your achievements. You’ll receive a personal fund to spend towards your wellbeing and have access to our healthcare scheme. You can join our networks and communities and pick up new hobbies or sports with friends and colleagues. Furthermore, you can give back to your local community with two volunteering days a year. Enjoy the chance to network, build connections, thrive in our inclusive, dynamic culture, and be valued for your contributions and unique perspectives.

By the end of the programme, you’ll gain a chartered accountancy qualification with ICAS or ICAEW and be ready to embark on a fast-moving, high-potential career. If you’re working for us in England, the programme is classed as a Level 7 Apprenticeship — equivalent to a master’s degree.
