EY Degree Apprenticeship in Digital Innovation – Tax

EY people working in Tax help make sure that our clients are paying the right tax, in the right way. If one of our clients starts doing business in another country, how much tax should they pay there? Tax laws change all the time, so keeping up with regulations is a big part of working in Tax.

In a digitally-driven world, we need to transform our business to prepare for changes happening in our profession as a result of emerging technologies. This means changing the way in which we deliver services to our clients, involving the introduction of a high degree of automation. We’re looking for people who will combine their tax and digital expertise to lead our business into the future.

As a degree apprentice working in Tax you will be part of an exciting new growth area at EY. Some examples of the work you could be doing include:

  • Solve problems using a host of state-of-the-art technologies and techniques – solving complex challenges in the automation of tax advice, tax monitoring, document review, transfer pricing or withholding taxes, and streamlining and automating tax compliance.
  • Gain experience in opportunities such as designing and prototyping emerging technology solutions (e.g. developing web and mobile apps)
  • Help to reshape the tax function of major FTSE-listed companies, to ensure they remain compliant while preparing them for a digital future.
  • Be part of EY’s own digital tax transformation as the UK tax authorities (and tax administrations around the world) fundamentally change the way they engage with taxpayers.
  • Work collaboratively in EY/client teams to solve our clients’ biggest business tax problems – building opportunities for your future in EY.


As an apprentice you can help business make the best use of their most valuable asset – their people.
