I was worried about asking too many questions when I first joined, but everyone has really encouraged me to do so and made me feel so welcome. It's helped me to develop and be confident.
Turnaround and Restructuring Strategy Apprentice
We operate an open access policy, meaning we don’t screen out applications on your academic performance alone. You will, however, need a minimum of grade 4/C GCSE (or equivalent) in English Language and Maths, and to have completed three A-levels/Five Highers (or equivalent) by the time the programme starts.
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.
It is therefore important that you provide us with your top three obtained or accurately predicted A-Levels (or equivalent) as these will be verified and considered as part of the offer process should you be successful. Any drop in grades could jeopardise your offer of employment.

How’s it structured?
We want you to get as much as you can from this apprenticeship, so after an EY induction, you’ll get straight to work on client projects. You can expect to be contributing to challenging projects, identifying and understanding not only clients’ financial and operational issues, but how their business and industry works too. You’ll build great networks and relationships, learn to make quick, practical decisions and work through problems decisively. As you progress through the programme you’ll get to do all this with more autonomy and responsibility.
As well as having lots of support from your team and in-house training opportunities, you’ll complete the CFAB qualification and then a full qualification through ICAEW. By the end of the programme you’ll have a lot of experience, a professional qualification and great network to continue building a career from.
