Assurance Industrial Placement Programme

What's Assurance?

Assurance plays a vital role in restoring and maintaining public confidence in the world's capital markets by providing an independent and reliable voice. At EY, it means working closely with some of the world’s most influential organisations and governments, understanding their strengths and vulnerabilities, and analysing the precision and safety of their performance.


Working in the UK & I

In the UK and Ireland, Assurance has a profound impact on the capital markets, economies and communities we serve. We help organisations provide accurate and current information to stakeholders about the efficiency and effectiveness of their policies and operations, and the status of their compliance with the statutory obligations.


Working in Financial Services

Our Financial Services Assurance practice is one of the most trusted, respected and influential organisations in the financial services industry. Built around our core audit delivery, it also encompasses a wide range of services across Banking & Capital Markets, Wealth & Asset Management, Insurance and Pensions. Whether providing assurance to key stakeholders and creating confidence to facilitate trades, or identifying opportunities for businesses to grow through better risk management, our aim is to create a better working world.
