What you will be doing

At EY, our tax teams advise our clients – who are organisations and individuals – on both the simple and complex tax concepts and rules. We act as innovative partners to our clients, offering supportive tax technology. This means that our clients can make the most informed decisions for their operations and futures, manage their tax risk and pay the right amount of tax, all while meeting their societal obligations. It’s a big responsibility – but a challenge you’ll relish. Join one of our Tax graduate programmes and enjoy learning all about the world of tax while laying the foundations for a successful future.
