About the programme

Enter the fast-paced and flexible world of Finance Modelling on our graduate programme. Here, you’ll learn to hone your skills in a supportive environment fuelled by the future of finance. We’re riding the digital wave at EY, and you’ll learn how to put us ahead of the curve so that our clients can navigate changing regulations and trends with confidence. We’ll teach you to analyse business insights, leverage cutting-edge technologies and craft a career with real potential within tomorrow’s world.

What will you be doing?

  • Designing, developing and deploying financial models using multi-dimensional software systems.
  • Working with colleagues or counterparts in client organisations to understand data requirements and associated calculation logic.
  • Translating data and calculation logic requirements into model designs.
  • Developing models on software platforms including prototype builds, product releases, testing and business integration.
  • Developing dashboards, visualisation and analytical solutions.
  • Running client workshops, writing user guides and delivering training to clients.
  • Building EY modelling assets for new opportunities to sell into the market.

How is it structured?

Our graduates enjoy a flexible yet coherent learning experience from the get-go. Develop strong interpersonal skills, the ability to flex your style, an understanding of complex business data requirements and your ability to build analytical models. All while you work towards your Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) Certificate in Business Accounting.

We’ll introduce you to the technology, tools and solutions we use to support our clients' finance transformation journeys (e.g., Oracle, Anaplan). This will familiarise you with specific technologies and provide a foundation to develop your skills further.

The graduate programme lasts two years and will provide you with a variety of experiences and learning opportunities to support your career and personal development. Gain first-hand experience from client delivery as well as developing new business propositions and building marketing material. Work across a range of existing and emerging technologies and drive innovation across Financial Services. And even travel across the UK and internationally for your clients.

By the time you finish the programme, you can expect to be well on your way to becoming a Senior Consultant in Finance Consulting, with the opportunity to build a speciality in your preferred area.

Alongside our programme offering, we give you all the training and exposure to real-world work you could want. We also offer company-wide and programme-specific rewards that make all the hard work worthwhile. These include wellbeing initiatives, a free tech MBA, healthcare support, a pension scheme and more.

Technology in Finance Consulting

Enjoy opportunities to work on a range of innovative projects. Imagine being responsible for the design, configuration and deployment of strategic solutions – solutions that enhance planning, forecasting and analytical capabilities across banks, insurance and asset management firms.

This is where your adventure begins and where you have every opportunity to build an exceptional experience. Embrace the challenge as you help us build a better working world for everyone.
