The EY Global Trade Team works with clients across the UK and internationally to help them identify and solve their most complex supply chain challenges. We do this by individually tailoring solutions to address our clients specific business needs. We are looking for interns for our Summer 2014 Internship Programme to work with our customs and export controls teams on a number of client and business development projects. This Internship Programme will offer students invaluable experience in working in professional services and will give them a unique insight into the world of global trade. Our Global Trade Internship positions are based in London (customs), Birmingham (customs and export controls) and Leeds (customs) but may involve travel in the UK or abroad if required.

What will my day be like in the EY Global Trade Team?

From Day One and during the course of the internship programme,  you will need to think of yourself as a consultant rather than a student. We will provide you with training and you will be given the opportunity to be involved in a wide-range of activities such as:

  • supporting teams in delivering client projects;
  • conducting research relating to industry trends to support new business development opportunities;
  • supporting teams to develop proposals for new projects.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for interns who have an interest in global trade who are who are inquisitive, analytical, driven and great at working with people. The role will require you to work within our team and be part of client and business development projects. You will therefore need to be a good team player and demonstrate the potential to become a future business leader. The role will require you to work within teams but will also require you to act on your own initiative.

Academic Requirements

We are looking for second year undergraduates or above or post-graduate students who are currently studying or have recently completed studies in related subjects to global trade (for example, International/European Law, International Business Law, European Politics, International Security, Anti-Terrorism and Non-Proliferation and International Relations etc).

In addition to the above, we are looking for the academic requirements below to have been met:

  • Grade B or above for GCSE Mathematics and English (or equivalent qualifications); and
  • Grade B or above in three relevant A-Level subjects (excluding General Studies); and
  • 2.1 degree or above (for those students that have already graduated) or a 2.1 or above overall average in already completed modules  for those that are still studying.

Please note: in exceptional circumstances we will accept applications from candidates who do not meet our academic requirements. If this is your case, you will need to provide strong justification for why we should consider your application. You will also need to provide documentary evidence of any mitigating circumstances.
