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 fast-track your application for a summer internship position in Assurance and Tax, which will take you further, faster.

Discover EY will take place from Thursday 31 March – Friday 1 April 2016 and Thursday 7 - Friday 8 April 2016.

Entry Requirements

You are eligible to apply for this programme if you are studying for an honours degree and are in your first year of study (and second year of study for Scottish universities).

Application Deadlines

Opening Date: Monday 2 November 2015

How do I apply?

You’ll need to complete our online application form. Once you have submitted this information, you will receive a link by email to our Strengths Portal where you will be asked to complete four assessments.

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.
