People Advisory Services

Our People Advisory Services (PAS) practice assist our clients in understanding and addressing some of their most complex people related challenges relating to Talent, Performance and HR systems. We help them to harness their people agenda as part of an integrated business strategy to gain a competitive people advantage which means having – the right people, with the right capabilities, in the right place, for the right cost, doing the right things, and ultimately improving and driving sustainable business results.

As an apprentice on the EY Degree Apprenticeship in Digital Innovation within PAS, you will work with the business to construct new innovative products and services for our clients, and use technology to optimise our service delivery.

Key areas of focus:

  • Using data to provide insight and analysis which you will share directly with PAS UKI Leadership
  • Data exploration and visualisation
  • Design and build Robotics Process Automation solutions
  • Design and build data solutions to provide analysis on large data sets.
  • Incorporate design thinking and Agile methodologies in construction of solutions
  • Support the development of others in analytics, using your advanced skills to provide support, guidance and training to other PAS teams. 

What support and professional qualifications will I gain?

You can expect first class training and support throughout your role. You will spend 20% of your time over 4 years studying towards a BSC Degree in Digital and Technology solutions, with training delivered by QA apprenticeships and degree accredited by Roehampton University.

As well as your technical training, you'll also develop essential know-how through a range of activities. Over the 4 years you can expect to experience web-based learning, shadowing senior colleagues and team members, and training courses with our in-house experts. You'll be assigned a career counsellor on day one who'll work closely with you to identify your strengths and help you grow in your career.

A role in EY People Advisory Services, combined with achieving a degree, should not be underestimated in terms of the experiences it opens up. Having gained a grounding in the IT aspects of finance industry and exposure to our large client base, you’ll have a wealth of practical experience to compound your theoretical knowledge. And this will open opportunities both inside and outside EY.

What do we look for?

You don’t need to have any prior technical experience or qualifications – we are looking for people who are passionate about technology and have a strong desire to learn.  Our degree apprenticeship offers you the chance to combine a business and technology career in a fast paced, rapidly expanding field. You’ll work as part of small high performing teams, so working well with others, as well as being able to think critically, is essential. Determination, ambition and energy are essential in this role.
