Degree Apprenticeship in Digital Innovation - Assurance

Our Assurance teams look closely at the numbers behind our clients’ businesses to give them, their investors, and market regulators a clear picture of what’s going on in their business. Our work helps everybody make good, confident decisions about companies.

If you enjoy following processes and have a great eye of detail then you’ll get along well in Assurance. We’re embedding digital as part of a career which helps us, and you, to build the knowledge and capabilities needed to serve our clients better, and as one of the world’s largest professional services firms we are already using data, robotics and artificial intelligence to provide advanced services to our clients.

As an apprentice on the degree apprenticeship in digital innovation in Assurance, you’ll be instrumental in helping to drive new ideas from day one, whilst earning a starting salary of up to £21,500. 

What support and professional qualifications will you receive?

You can expect first class training and support throughout your role as a digital apprentice. You will spend 20% of your time over 4 years studying towards a BSc degree.  You will study with other Apprentices at QA and receive a degree accredited from Roehampton University in Digital and Technology Solutions. You will build on these skills in our teams with our clients in between your block release sessions.

As well as your technical training, you'll also develop essential know-how through a range of activities. Over the 4 years you can expect to experience web-based learning, shadowing senior colleagues and team members, and training courses with our in-house experts. You'll be assigned a career counsellor on day one who'll work closely with you to identify your strengths and help you grow in your career.

A role in EY Assurance, combined with achieving a degree, should not be underestimated in terms of the experiences it opens up. Having gained a grounding in the IT aspects of finance industry and exposure to our large client base, you’ll have a wealth of practical experience to compound your theoretical knowledge. And this will open opportunities both inside and outside EY.

What do we look for?

You don’t need to have any prior technical experience or qualifications- we’re looking for people who are passionate about technology and have a strong desire to learn. You’ll work as part of small high performing teams, so working well with others, as well as being able to think critically, is essential. Determination, ambition and energy are essential in this role.
