Tax Industrial Placement

Job description


Review varied regulations. Create real value. Drive a bigger, better purpose.

Get a head start on your graduate career while helping local and international businesses find better ways of doing tax. You’ll earn a salary while gaining on-the-job experience in an organisation that’s shaping the future of business. This is your opportunity to create a strong reputation in a strong global company.

What is Tax at EY?
We help local and global entrepreneurs, high-net-worth individuals and organisations manage every element of their business’s tax. And as a function, Tax has changed more than ever in the past five years. Not only is Tax broader in its operations, but it’s also more digital. From bots that do our number crunching to AI that inspires our innovations, Tax is no longer bound to Excel, it’s boundless. Tax is now one of our most central business areas and we work across our entire organisation to shape strategies of the future.

What will you be doing?
You’ll be working on real client projects from day one. You’ll start to build your knowledge of local and international tax laws, attend client meetings, take notes and contribute to client reports. With the support of senior colleagues and a career coach, you’ll gain a better understanding of:

  • Researching and contributing information to written reports
  • Assessing the strengths and weaknesses of organisations large and small – many of which are extraordinary enough to be labelled as FTSE 100 businesses
  • Researching tax laws and new client profiles
  • Helping with gathering information and report writing
  • Tax reporting, compliance and planning
  • How to build important relationships with clients
  • The broad range of skills that you’ll need to build a successful career

Throughout the placement you’ll have opportunities to learn from EY’s in-house experts, and if you join FS, you’ll start working towards a professional accountancy qualification.

If everything works out well, you could even secure a job here after you graduate. For FS graduates, you can also continue studying for your qualifications. This is your time to grow.

Project You. It’s yours to build.
