What is Technology at EY?
Our Technology teams combine digital know-how with advanced tech to help clients understand and transform their businesses.
What will you be doing?
We offer four programmes in Technology:
- Cyber Security where you can work with banks, insurers and other financial institutions to protect them from cyber threats
- Forensic Technology and Discovery Services – Data Analytics where you can manage data analytics for investigations into price fixing, misappropriation of funds, employee misconduct, financial crime and more
- IT Risk Assurance – Data Analytics where you can help companies test their IT processes, systems and controls, and show them where to make improvements
- Transactions - Data Analytics where you bring data to life, developing complex models to support strategic and operational decision making for our clients
Throughout each of these programmes, you’ll work on real client projects and have access to ongoing training and development opportunities, some of which might lead to professional qualifications. Above all, you’ll be supported to grow and take on more responsibilities in your work as the programme progresses.
For our technology graduate programmes, you’ll need an honours degree in a Computer Science related subject. You can also apply if you have a STEM degree, with some IT experience. You’ll also need a minimum of Level 2/GCSE (or equivalent) in English Language & Maths, three A-levels, 5 Highers or equivalent by the time the programme starts.
