Why an EY Industrial Placement?
An EY Industrial Placement gives you a full 12 months as a paid, full-time employee, to get a true feel for EY and a clear picture of where and how you want to make your impact.
Working within one of our four service lines – Assurance, Consulting, Tax or Transactions – you can choose to work with clients that span many UK industry sectors, or you can focus solely on Financial Services clients.
You’ll spend a year immersed in our leading professional services organisation, giving your degree real world context. You’ll receive world-class training and development with a potential head start towards a professional accountancy qualification. You’ll gain knowledge and experience, build networks with EY experts, and beyond that can kick start your career in business.
What happens after an EY Industrial Placement?
If you get as much out of the placement as we think you will, and if EY is the right place for you to make the impact you want, you could secure a job offer before you graduate.
