EY in Belfast

Student opportunities to make an impact in our Belfast practice and UK&I Delivery Centre.

Belfast Practice

You'll be based in Northern Ireland, working with clients that include the largest share of locally headquartered companies in the Northern Ireland Top 100, listed companies, private equity investors and investees, owner managed businesses and the operations of some of the world’s largest companies. Gain experiences and acquire skills to build your career and create your future, and have the option to study for a professional qualification.

Delivery Centre

Within the UK&I Delivery Centre, there will be two types of role: one offering travel opportunities and unrivaled exposure across the UK&I business, while the other is Belfast-based with extensive opportunities to support our new growth platforms. For both, you'll be adding value and delivering a range of services to our clients. You'll also have a broad range of experience and benefit from a tailored training and development plan to help you grow in your career.

Our Belfast Programmes

Applications to some of our 2021 programmes are now open. Please check the programme pages below to apply now. If your programme or location of interest is not open, there is an option to register your interest.

    Our Belfast application process

    • EY Business Academy

      • Stage 1: Application Form

        First, you’ll need to create your account (remember these details so you can log back in easily).

        You’ll then need to choose your programme and your preferred location to work.

        We want to make sure that your application process is as straightforward as possible. So, before you get started with Stage 1, please make sure:

        • You know which programme you want to apply for (remember, you can only apply for one)
        • Your computer or laptop has a working webcam, a microphone (internal or external), you have access to broadband or high-speed internet and you’re able to install software (you’ll be prompted to install the latest version of Adobe Flash during Stage 2). While our application process works best on Chrome, it’s also supported by Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer (IE10 and later)

        After registering, we'll be looking to learn all about you. It’s where you enter your personal details and experience.

        • When filling out your details, please read the instructions carefully and provide all the details of your qualifications. Finally – it sounds obvious – but don’t forget to proofread your answers before submitting them.

        Ready? Great, let’s get started.

        We’ll let you know immediately if you’re through to the next stage.

      • Stage 2: Online Assessments

        During this stage, you’ll gain the opportunity to hear from some of our current apprentices and what it’s like to work at EY.

        First, you'll complete the numerical reasoning test (NRT) which must be completed in one sitting and is a timed activity. Practice as many numerical tests as you can prior to this stage. There’s lots of guidance, tips and examples online. These tests measure speed and accuracy so we’d strongly encourage you to practice.

        Next, you'll move on to complete some short online assessments, across four key areas. This immersive assessment will involve a mixture of multiple choice and ranking questions. On average, this stage will take 20 minutes to complete although this stage is not timed so you can spend longer if needed. Whilst this can be done at your own pace, we’d recommend you complete as soon as possible.

        Once you’ve completed the assessment, we’ll let you know if you've secured a place.

    • Apprenticeship Programmes

We believe this will be helpful for you, no matter where you choose to work.

        If you pass this, we’ll let you know if you’ve progressed to Stage 3 – EY Experience Day.

      • Stage 3: EY Experience Day

        If you’ve made it to this stage – congratulations! The next step is to join an EY Experience Day.

        In light of recent developments regarding Covid-19, and to protect the health and well-being of our people and candidates, we’re adapting your upcoming EY Experience Day to take place virtually.

        There are a few things to note before the day:

        • When we contact you to confirm that you’re through to this final stage, you’ll have 48 hours to respond to the invitation and confirm your attendance. If we don’t hear from you, we’ll assume that you won’t be joining us for the EY Experience Day
        • And we won’t be able to move the date of the EY Experience Day – this is fixed based on the programme and location you applied to

        On the day of your virtual EY Experience you'll take part in a number of activities. During the exercises, you'll be required to use a webcam facility in order to interact with your assessor.

        The day is designed to see if you have the strengths needed for your role at EY but it’s also a chance to see if EY is right for you.

        You’ll receive all the details of the day closer to the time, but here are some top tips and a checklist for you in the meantime to be sure you have everything you need before the day.

        Top tips

        • To avoid major technical issues on the day, ensure you have downloaded Google Chrome for Windows and MacOS software
        • Ensure you're at home
        • Ensure you're using a computer with a strong internet connection
        • Do NOT use a mobile phone for the call
        • Make sure you have found somewhere quiet and private to complete your EY Experience Day, with no distractions
        • During the exercises, you'll be required to use a webcam to allow you to interact accordingly with your assessor – so remember to dress appropriately
        • Ensure you have access to a calculator and a notepad/pen

        After the event, we'll let you know if you've been successful. You’ll then receive information about Stage 4 - Final interview.

      • Stage 4: Final Interview

        The final stage of the process is a final interview with a senior representative from the business. In light of recent developments regarding Covid-19, all final interviews will now take place virtually using video call technology.

        You’ll take part in a short discussion and talk about your motivations for the role you’ve applied for.

        We’ll be in contact with you soon after to let you know if you’ve secured a role with us.
