1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:


My role includes assisting teams with the Audit of several large companies. I will often have to audit whole accounts by myself and am now starting to audit more and more complex areas.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?


I have really developed my confidence levels as I have been going around talking to very senior employees of very large companies. I have also currently passed 2 accounting exams therefore further developing my knowledge of accounting.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


I find that I have a huge variety of different tasks that I can do in the day to day job which keeps it more exciting. I also work in a different team every other week which also helps with the variety and how much I enjoy the work.

4. How valued do you feel by EY?


I do feel very valued by EY, after talking to other friends from school none of them seem to quite get the recognition and benefits that EY have given to me.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?


The training is very well structured as there is a dedicated team that will organise the training for you.

6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?


EY uses Kaplan for their training on the school leaver programme, they offer lots of help and each tutor will give up their time even after the training to help us should we have any more questions.

6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?


Our employer doesn't provide too much support for our training as they do not offer us study days before the exam, we are expected to study during the evenings after work for our exams, apart from this they are very helpful with explaining concepts to us or understanding if we are struggling with them.

7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?


For myself the salary package covers my costs very well as I live at home and with the benefits EY offer it is a very comfortable wage for me.

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?


There are lots of opportunities outside of work, there are many social events held and many different societies to be a part of

They really look after you as an employee.

Apply early and don't be scared to apply, EY is a big company which may be scary at first as they may feel its to much for them, but they really take care of you so its definitely worth applying as the programme can set you up for life.
