How’s it structured?
Developing your understanding of local and international tax laws is at the heart of this programme. After an EY induction you’ll join your team in Financial Service (FS) Direct Tax. Throughout the year, you’ll take up a variety of client work including technical research into areas of tax legislation, commercial research into new clients, attending and taking notes of client meetings and calls, as well as report writing and meetings.
There’ll be lots of development opportunities, informal technical training sessions to discuss new legislation with your team and you’ll have a counsellor who’ll keep in touch about your career development too. Do a great job and you may be offered a place on the team once you’ve finished uni.
