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 honours degree in any subject, have a minimum of grade 4/C GCSE (or equivalent) in English Language and Maths, and three A-levels/Five Highers (or equivalent) to be eligible to apply.
We welcome applications from all academic backgrounds and are looking for individuals who will succeed at EY in the desired role and future qualifications, therefore throughout our recruitment process your academic performance will be considered against your online assessment scores to determine your suitability for an EY role. We are also proud to partner with RARE recruitment, so that your application can be processed in the context of your socio-economic background. This allows us to give you the maximum credit for your achievements, assessing whether you have overachieved in light of your personal circumstances.

How’s it structured?
Developing your understanding of local and international tax laws is at the heart of this programme. Whether you join UK&I or FS, you’ll be learning on-the-job, have access to coaching and training opportunities with lots of support from your team. Alongside day-to-day work, you will also begin working towards your professional qualification.
Year 1 - Your first year will be spent understanding how businesses operate and the tax issues associated with them. You'll also begin studying for your professional qualification. You'll have a lot of support and will build your technical knowledge by assisting Seniors with tax work while working alongside offshore support (where relevant).
Years 2 and 3 - You'll continue studying for your professional qualification. You will also be gaining invaluable experience through technical tax work and working directly with Managers and above. You will be assisting and delegating work to new joiners and taking on more responsibility on engagements and interacting directly with clients.
Alongside day-to-day work, you'll also have the opportunity to join the many EY networks and social groups available, allowing you to broaden your opportunities and increase your social network.
