    We have closed this programme in Bristol, Leeds, London and Luton. Some roles may open again later in the season, so we'd recommend you keep checking our website for the most up to date recruitment information. You can also register your interest here to keep up to date. 

    What will you be doing?

    • Researching tax laws and new client profiles
    • Meeting with clients, mentors and coaches
    • Helping with gathering information and report writing
    • Are you eligible to apply?

      If you’re in your penultimate year at university, or if you’re already in your final year but will be doing a one-year Master’s degree, or taking a gap year, this internship is for you. 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. Read more on our approach here.
