Still recruiting throughout COVID‑19

Job description

Explore how a career in Assurance can open doors to many impactful experiences.

At EY, no question is too small, too ambitious or too imaginative. We use our curiosity to ask better questions, that inspire better answers. That’s how we build a better working world.

On our Assurance Summer Internship programmes, you’ll work to make sure that businesses are protected from risks that can affect their reputation and performance. You’ll help us to advise companies and governments, even helping them to publish accurate financial accounts others can rely on. You’ll gain valuable experience that will see you gaining skills set for the future and growing your confidence for your next step. Here, your career is truly yours to build. Experience our world. Your way.

Our Assurance teams analyse the data behind our clients’ businesses. As external auditors, they help companies and governments publish accurate financial accounts that their clients and industry regulators can rely on. When it comes to the audit process, our job is to solve big accounting and reporting challenges, voice our opinions to audit committees and do it all on time, as a team and with future improvement in mind.

What programmes can you join?

  • Assurance

Discover auditing and help companies and governments with their financial accounting needs.

  • Technology Risk

Help clients protect their reputations by mitigating business and IT risks, whilst providing assurance and advice.

  • Technology in Assurance

From implementing digital approaches into our global audit methodology to processing millions of transactions into visual analytics solutions, innovation and technology will be embedded into your audit clients from day one.

We’re using innovative technology such as Robotic Process Automation and Process Mining to review our client’s population data. And you’ll learn about data visualisation and design thinking to power your audit work.

What will you be doing?

You’ll build a career that’s yours to own. With infinite opportunities to lead, learn and transform, we’ll empower you to build a world as unique as you. You’ll be:

  • Gaining exposure to EY and networking with colleagues from different levels of the business
  • Building your knowledge of our clients and how we support them
  • Developing core skills in Business writing, effective time management, client service and personal brand through structured learning and self-directed learning
  • Being supported by an EY mentor and Buddy throughout the internship
