Meet Elizabeth - Assurance Graduate Programme


What you will be doing

Our Assurance teams analyse the data behind our clients’ businesses to give them, their investors and regulators a clear picture of how they’re performing.

As you progress you’ll take on greater responsibilities. You may become your client’s main contact, regularly travelling to and working from their offices and spotting profitable business opportunities to take the lead on.

Along the way you’ll study, shadow senior colleagues and you could even go on secondments, supported by your own personal counsellor who’ll help guide your growth. This kind of exposure, together with working towards your qualifications, will open up many more opportunities within EY and beyond.

You’ll be working closely with your team, running audits for clients, spotting business opportunities and ensuring it’s all profitable. 


  • You will get to know our clients, their businesses and how they work to provide the right service
  • You will test checks and balances to ensure they work how they’re supposed to
  • You will analyse the data that goes into a financial statement to make sure it is true and fair
  • You will gain professional qualifications in chartered accountancy with ICAS or ICAEW and a level 7 Apprenticeship in accountancy and taxation (equivalent to a master’s degree) *Please note this applies to English office locations only.

Entry requirements: If you have an honours degree (in any subject) by the time the programme starts, this is for you.
