1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
I am an assistant tax advisor in the international tax services department. I work on many projects at once and attend meetings with the internal keeps, prepare client decks and project manage.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I have passed the CFAB qualification and will go on to complete the ACA. I regularly attend tax training sessions and review latest updates. I have also developed personal skills when presenting.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I enjoy my company culture the most. The firm is a friendly environment and comfortable to work in. I would prefer to be given more responsibility.
4. How valued do you feel by EY?
I am often given value awards which I appreciate when I have worked long hours on a project to meet deadlines.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
The programme is very structured. We have periods of work and at college, an induction week, training throughout and a large support network.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
I would expect more time with the tutor in college i.e. at lunch or after class as most tutors do not stay longer than 5 minutes. They do however provide their email address if we have questions.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
I have a counsellor who gives me a lot of support when handling work and study and life outside of work. I have different levels of support which make it accessible or if my manager is out of office I have other contacts.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
The cost to travel to London and buy lunch etc take up a lot of my income. I think it was a good starting salary but would like a greater increase as we get more responsibility in the firm.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
There are lots of company events and clubs. I have volunteered for different sports races and enjoyed myself. Most of the time when I am outside of work I tend to keep it that way
