Become an Assurance Graduate

Redefine the way businesses manage their finances by experiencing the world of audit first hand. And embark on a career journey you can own, shape and grow.

“Working with high profile global clients from day one and building technical knowledge through exams has given me future skills.” – Murtaza, Assurance Graduate

What you will be doing

Push the boundaries of client solutions as you help them navigate the ever-changing audit environment. Pick up the skills you need to tackle international cross-industry challenges. And work with organisations big and small – from governments to start-ups – aiding in their financial success. This is where you can have a true client-facing, digital-first impact on the world of assurance while crafting a career that is both varied and structured.

  • You will be getting to know our clients, their businesses and how they work.
  • You will be laying the foundations for a successful career in audit.
  • You will be gaining a broad understanding of how businesses work – from HR to Marketing.
  • You will be analysing the data that goes into a financial statement to make sure it is true and fair.
  • You will be using hybrid working to spend time on client sites, in the office and at home
    You will be having a dedicated careers counsellor throughout the programme to help you during busier seasons, development and learning

What you will have

We operate an open access policy, meaning we don’t screen out applications on your academic performance alone. You will, however, need to be working towards an honour’s degree in any subject, have a minimum of grade 4/C GCSE (or equivalent) in English Language and Maths, and 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.
