Discover EY

Discover EY is an innovative two-day programme run specifically for first years (and second years from Scottish universities). We’ll give you an insight into the world of Audit and Tax and show you what it’s like to work for an organisation like EY.

Run in our offices across the UK you’ll get the opportunity to learn more about what a career in Audit or Tax has to offer through interactive workshops, case studies and one-to-one networking opportunities with our staff.

You’ll leave us at the end of your two days knowing a lot more about yourself and how you might apply your strengths at EY. And if you impress us we may fast-track your application for a summer internship position in Assurance and Tax, which will take you further, faster.

You'll need at least:

  • A predicted 2:1 degree in any subject.
  • At least 320 UCAS points (not counting General Studies or re-sits)
  • Grade B or above for GCSE Mathematics and English Language (or equivalent)

How do I apply?

You’ll need to complete our online application form and Strengths Assessment (we’ll send you the link when you’ve submitted your online application form.

Here’s what happens after you’ve submitted your application:

  • You’ll be asked to take our online numerical, verbal and abstract reasoning tests.
  • If it all goes well, you'll be invited to a 30 minute telephone interview. We'll be aiming to discover your individual strengths and career motivation for joining our Assurance and Tax practice. It's also your chance to learn more about us.

Please note we are only able to accept one application per candidate for either the Leadership Academy OR Discover EY.
