What is Accelerate into Assurance?

Our Accelerate into Assurance paid work experience programme is designed to give you a taster for what our Assurance Graduate Programme is like. You’ll spend one week within our Assurance service line in Hull, Luton or Reading. Accelerate into Assurance is a great way to work out whether a Graduate programme is right for you.

During your recruitment process you can expect to complete a couple of assessments which may include our Learning about you, Learning for the changing world and Learning on the job stages and we’ll also provide you with a coaching call, so you are set up for success.

This programme will be held from 22nd July – 26th July 2019 (Luton) and 5th – 9th August 2019 (Hull, Luton and Reading). If you enjoy your experience and would like to start on our Graduate programme, you’ll be fast tracked to start with us in September 2019.


Applications to this programme are now closed. To be the first to find out about our 2020 opportunities, sign up now

Entry requirements

You must have already graduated or be in your final year at university and looking to go into full time work in September 2019.


How's it structured?

Over the course of one-week you’ll have a one-day induction where we’ll set you up for success and learn about EY and how you can make an impact. You’ll be a valued part of a team of world-class professionals, helping to make a difference to our clients and their businesses. We’ll provide you with a buddy who will help you settle in and get to know the ins and outs of EY and our graduate programme. We’ll also provide you with a career counsellor who is there to support you on your career journey with us.

During your one-week experience with us we’ll be conducting strengths assessments. If you enjoy your experience getting to know what our Assurance service line does and a graduate programme with us interests you, we’ll fast track you, so you’re able to join nearly 1,000 Apprentices and Graduates as they join EY this September.
