What is Elevate?

Elevate is a bespoke programme, designed to help newly qualified and soon to be qualified (ICAEW, ICAS or ACCA) Audit professionals transition from a small to mid-tier UK based firm to a globally integrated professional services organisation.

You’ll be given exciting opportunities to work with local companies and global organisations across industries, solving some of their most complex Audit challenges. You’ll build on your existing Audit knowledge and technical expertise in a supportive and inclusive team. And, you’ll work with purpose. Using the latest tech to provide independent verification of our clients' compliance with accounting principles, helping businesses accurately reflect their financial picture.

One of my favourite aspects of my job, and something I'm passionate about, is assisting others in achieving their goals, so I'm looking forward to the launch of the EY Elevate programme this year. I am excited to help the next intake with their transition and journey towards achieving their professional goals within EY.
