This job has closed



Help clients build and deliver on their strategies and goals whilst carving out the skills you need for your future.

At EY, no question is too small, too ambitious or too imaginative. We use our curiosity to ask better questions, that inspire better answers. That’s how we build a better working world.

Here, you’ll ask better questions to help business make better decisions so they can stay ahead of the competition. You’ll do work today that defines tomorrow. And you’ll build your own hands-on experience from day one. In return, we’ll support your progress towards professional qualifications. Each programme encompasses different activities, and each has its own unique opportunities to explore. Here, your career is truly yours to build. Experience our world. Your way.

Economies are fuelled by competitive organisations who buy, sell, merge or restructure parts of their business with others. Our job is to help them do all that whilst making more informed decisions and building better strategies. By advising them on capital solutions, we give way to fast and authentic growth that will reshape their operations.

What programmes can you join?

Business Modelling and Analytics - Delivers a broad spectrum of services from complex transaction-related financial modelling and business planning through to decision support and analytics.

Economic Advisory - Help clients in making better decisions around policy, regulation and commercial activities.

Corporate Finance - Provide advice to a wide range of public and private sector clients, from central government, entrepreneurs, to private equity and privately owned businesses.

Operational Analytics and Research - Help businesses solve some of their most challenging problems whilst developing your analytical and consulting capability.

Transaction Diligence - Specialise in financial due diligence – assessing risks and opportunities – and reporting on these to our clients, their banks, investors and others.

Turnaround and Restructuring Strategy - Advise organisations and other affected parties, when they are underperforming on the best course of action.

Valuation - Support transactions or investment decisions, and enable our clients to meet their regulatory, tax, or financial reporting requirements.

Technology in Strategy and Transactions - Innovation is our mindset and technology is our power; enabling us to move business to new uncharted depths and deliver better and faster solutions for clients. You’ll work closely with colleagues, using EY tools and networks to solve complex business problems.

What will you be doing?

You’ll build a career that’s yours to own. With infinite opportunities to lead, learn and transform, we’ll empower you to build a world as unique as you. You’ll be:

  • Working on client-facing projects in varying sectors and service offerings
  • Adding value to client engagements
  • Learning from and working with colleagues across all sectors and service offerings
  • Taking ownership of complex, sometimes high-profile projects
  • Taking ownership of key deliverables, including business and industry research and analysis

Are you eligible to apply?

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 – some programmes will require a subject relevant to the business area, have a minimum of grade 4/C GCSE (or equivalent) in English Language and Maths, and three A-levels/Five Highers (or equivalent).

“I’ve worked on projects using new technologies and have been given all the support, resources and training needed so I’m confident in my work.” – Emily, Business Modelling and Analytics Graduate
