1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
I interact with clients and the EY team to find sufficient proof on the clients accounts. For example, I will go through files and documents and tick them through to the client's database, or I will discuss with the team how to resolve an issues we find.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I have had internal training courses and have began my exams to become a qualified accountant. I have learned more about Assurance and Accounting.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
The teams change on each engagement which makes it more various but less sociable because you can not have close working relationships; I have a lot of people who I talk to on lync but I don't see them day to day that much.
4. How valued do you feel by EY?
I feel like my input and level is almost equal to those joining as a graduate. Most of the time I feel able to contribute to team discussions and I know that as I progress I will earn more responsibility and feel more valued.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
I don't know much about what to expect in the future but I definitely trust EY to get me the qualification of becoming a chartered accountant at the end and trust that once qualified I will be in an advantageous point in my career. I feel supported by my peers and seniors - I was given a buddy and counsellor at the start of the year.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
I was given enough support necessary to achieve my goals of passing my exams and qualifying.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
I have a counsellor and buddy and there are clear communications of the near future events to be aware of e.g. exam courses or training courses. If I have a problem I have a number of sources of help and guidance.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
I would probably not be able to move out from home and live on this salary, but as I progress the wage goes up and then I will.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
There are occasional events which EY encourages me to get involved in outside of work.
9a. Would you recommend EY to a friend? *
9b. Why? *
It offers a fantastic qualification, is a great start to my career and I have had a huge amount of experiences since starting.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to EY? *
Learn to drive early if you are in Assurance; there are long and awkward commute on some clients.
