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

8/10

Indirect tax trainee tax advisor. tracking client's tax compliance and working with the indirect tax team in Birmingham to further my technical understanding. All this will involve constant correspondence with clients and the other EY territories.

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

8/10

I have developed my team work and professional manner. prioritisation is also a key skill as there are so many different tasks that have such different natures.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?

8/10

I love the programme as a whole- the working environment and social side of work is a huge part of my life at EY but exams and deadlines are an expected source of stress.

4. How valued do you feel by EY?

8/10

I feel like they value the investment they made in me - which drives all around me to see me suceed

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?

6/10

This is one of the weaknesses - exam dates and availability is clearly unknown throughout the school leaver community and all other service lines outside audit seem to suffer as a side effect of their strict timetable.

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

5/10

during the last exam period the tutors were poor and the resources we were given could have been better.

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

6/10

From my team in the office lots- there is huge flexibility when studying but again the overall timetable of the programme is tailored towards audit so the other service lines suffer as part of that.

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

4/10

Just about - the wage is enough for me to support myself but I do feel there is a large gap between the school leaver wage and the graduate wage.

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?

9/10

yes

9a. Would you recommend EY to a friend? *

Yes

9b. Why? *

the growth environment means there is an abundance of opportunities to develop a career.

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to EY? *
