How’s it structured?

After an EY induction, you’ll join your team in Economic Advisory. Working with senior-level people means you’re given responsibility and the chance to pick up lots of knowledge, quickly. As soon as you’re ready, you’ll be working on client projects on a range of model build and review assignments covering a variety of issues and sectors. You’ll become an expert at using tools like Excel, Alteryx and Spotfire and successfully advise clients on how to get the results they want.

You can also expect lots of training and development opportunities, including a four-day modelling boot camp. When the programme finishes, you could be promoted to an Executive and will be a part of a global network of EY business modelling professionals, where opportunities for overseas secondments often come up.
