How’s it structured?
After an EY induction, you’ll join your team in either Financial Services (FS) or UK & Ireland (UK&I) and jump straight into work on real client projects.
In FS, the programme lasts two years and will provide you with a variety of experiences and learning opportunities to support your development. We'll help you develop the skills to decipher how each client problem is different and to find innovative and sound ways of solving them. During the programme you'll get exposure to a range of sectors across Financial Services including Wealth & Asset Management, Banking & Capital Markets and Insurance. You'll even get the opportunity to apply for a six-month secondment, gaining valuable insight into another area of our business.
in UK&I, the sky’s the limit. From working as part of a bid team to redesigning processes and procedures or advising clients on the development and implementation of technology solutions, you’ll develop a huge mix of business and people skills.
Whichever business area you join, you’ll have the opportunity to study for a CIMA qualification in Business Accounting in your first year and throughout the programme you'll have access to training and development resources as well as support from colleagues within your team. Since no two projects will be the same, we’ll coach and mentor you in a way that will prepare you for anything.
Do a great job, and you could be promoted to Senior Consultant by the end of the programme.
