Every day, EY helps businesses around the world to make smarter choices and find the right formula for their success. We’re equally passionate about helping people find their own way to the kind of career that’s best for them. As a successful global business that’s respected by many of the world’s leading multinational companies, we can do just that – and open plenty of doors along the way.
Our Assurance teams check the figures and the way organisations do business, so giving companies, investors and regulators confidence in financial statements, business critical information and processes. Their finely honed skills, experience and accounting solutions provide an independent and reliable voice for organisations – fundamental to restoring and maintaining public confidence in the world's capital markets.
Audit is just part of our work in Assurance. We also help clients make informed decisions about environmental policies, governance, management systems and fraud investigation.
Focused on studying Accounting and Finance? Why not combine your University offer with an EY Assurance Scholarship? You’ll benefit from paid work placements, work towards a professional qualification and enjoy £15,000 in scholarship payments during your degree. It’s a chance to experience university life while boosting your employability. And it’s the perfect way to get your career in business off to the best possible start.
On the job, you will be completing high-quality audits and speaking to clients about business-critical information or processes. The work is varied; one day you might be travelling to work with a major telecoms client to check their financial accounts are in order, another you might be working with a financial services client focusing on banking, insurance or wealth management.
Our Assurance Scholarship lasts four years. It includes a paid, four week summer placement in our Assurance practice after your first year at university, and a paid, year-long industrial placement at an EY office during year three. Do well on your course and in our organisation, and we could offer you a full-time job when you graduate. You’d be joining one of the largest and most successful professional services companies in the world. With 190,000 people in 150 countries, we help businesses of all shapes and sizes become the best they can be; we’ll help you do the same.
We are looking for school leavers who have intellectual rigour, analytical know-how and the ability to develop client relationships. And if you think you’ve got what it takes to become a future business leader, then we definitely want to meet you.
What can you look forward to?
- Two paid placements in Assurance – a service line that’s involved in everything from auditing and improving financial reporting to tackling fraud and corporate crime.
- Three £5,000 scholarship payments – one for each year of study.
- A head start towards a chartered accountancy qualification.
- Opportunities to work directly with global clients, learn from our most senior people and build lasting professional networks.
- The chance to pick up invaluable business skills to make you more employable, such as teamwork, self-discipline and time management.
- A potential permanent job when you graduate, giving you job security on top of your degree.
