Overall Rating

EY Assurance Business Apprenticeship Programme

Salary: Up to £22,000 starting salary

Gain real work experience in the business world, take advantage of new tech and build the skills you need to propel your career. You’ll create real change by helping businesses publish reliable financial accounts, all while you study for a professional qualification and progress towards becoming a chartered accountant.

What is Assurance at EY?

Our Assurance teams analyse the data behind our clients’ businesses. As external auditors, they help companies and governments publish accurate financial accounts that their clients and industry regulators can rely on.

What will you be doing?

You’ll be working closely with your team auditing a variety of clients across different sectors. The role will include:

  • Getting to know our clients, their businesses and how they work
  • Testing checks and balances to ensure they work how they’re supposed to
  • Analysing the data that goes into a financial statement to make sure it’s true and fair

You may also be required to take on more work, and you should be amenable to longer hours and spending a greater amount of time working away from home, particularly during busy season. You can expect to spend a high proportion of your time on client site too.

You’ll also study and undertake exams along the way so you’ll progress even faster professionally than your university-going friends. At the end of the programme, you’ll have gained professional qualifications, a host of transferable skills, lots of practical experience and a network of mentors to help you keep developing. An apprenticeship in assurance gives you a solid grounding, and sets you up, for a career in finance.

Qualification you’ll get

Professional qualifications in chartered accountancy with ICAEW in England or ICAS in Scotland and a Level 7 Apprenticeship in accountancy and taxation.

Entry requirements

You’ll need a minimum of Level 2/GCSE (or equivalent) in English Language & Maths and to have completed three A-Levels, five Scottish Highers or equivalent by the time the programme starts.

“The best thing about the role is the variety and that I am not doing the same tasks on a daily basis. It has provided me with the opportunity to take a look at the running behind some of the largest insurance businesses, both in the UK and internationally, and has also involved quite a bit of travel.” Jade, Assurance Business Apprenticeship
