About the programme

As companies grow, making sure that compliance with the law can become complex and time-consuming. The Entity Compliance and Governance (ECG) team at EY assists clients in managing this challenge. We ensure companies adhere to all the relevant procedures and regulations in the most efficient manner, reducing risks and boosting efficiency through an innovative, technology-enabled approach. Because of this, companies can focus on achieving their core objectives without worrying about regulatory compliance.

What will you be doing?

  • Develop a good understanding of our clients, their organisations, stakeholders, and how they work, across three workstreams within ECG: Managed Services; Governance Advisory; Technology and Tranformation.
  • Gain technical skills and learn about relevant company legislation and regulation to support the team with advising clients.
  • Gain experience in supporting and coordinating a variety of governance duties such as board meeting tasks, company registrar filings, managing changes in company structure and directorships.
  • Be part of a team developing innovative technology solutions for common challenges in the governance space.
  • Opportunities for secondments to our diverse clients across a range of sectors.

Programme duration

  • Two years

Qualification/s you’ll gain

  • Level 4 Apprenticeship. 

The programme is equivalent to the Chartered Governance Institute (CGI) Foundation Programme. Upon completion of this Programme, candidates will be eligible to progress onto Part One of the Chartered Governance Qualifying Programme. An option is available to sit the CGI Foundation Programme examinations to obtain the qualification.

Are you eligible to apply?

We operate an open access policy, meaning we don’t screen out applications on your academic performance alone. You will, however, need a minimum of grade 4/C GCSE (or equivalent) in English Language and Maths, and to have completed three A-levels/Five Highers (or equivalent).

We welcome applications from all academic backgrounds and are looking for people who will succeed at EY today and tomorrow. That's why, through our recruitment process, your academic performance will be considered against your online assessment scores to determine your suitability for an EY role. We’re also proud to partner with RARE recruitment, so that your application can be processed in the context of your socio-economic background.
