Assurance Industrial Placement

Job description

What is Assurance at EY?

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.

The quality of our audits starts with our 90,000 assurance professionals, who have the breadth of experience and ongoing professional development that come from auditing many of the world’s leading companies.

What will you be doing?

From day one, you’ll be working on real client projects, learning about their businesses and processes and developing your people and relationship building skills. Over the course of the year you’ll also pick up these tasks with greater confidence:

  • Testing clients’ business controls to ensure they’re working as they should be
  • Using our technology platforms to analyse data which forms the basis for clients’ financial statements
  • Perform detailed testing to confirm these financial statements are true and fairly stated
  • Working with clients on site

You might also need to take on more work, and you should be prepared to do longer hours and spend a greater amount of time working away from home, particularly during busy season. And although normally you’d spend a high proportion of your time on client sites, this might be impacted by new working practices and guidelines put in place to protect our people and their wellbeing in the current climate.

You’ll also begin studying for your chartered accountancy qualifications with ICAEW in England, or ICAS in Scotland, and will be offered even more training and development options from EY’s in-house experts. If everything works out well, you could even secure a job here after you graduate, where you’ll continue to develop and complete your professional qualifications. Welcome to your tomorrow.
