Assurance Summer Internship

Get an insight into auditing our client's businesses whilst developing skills that’ll complement your career. And embark on a career journey you can own, shape and grow.

About the programme

This is where you can gain a front-seat view into our clients’ businesses. We offer a unique hands-on client-facing approach. Our technological focus is also a differentiator for us as we give you an insight into how the world of digital will impact audits of the future – on a global scale.

Join us on this four-week summer internship and no two days will be the same. You’ll help us build a better working world by learning all about business-leading strategies, exploring how we analyse complex data sets and setting the wheels in motion for the start of your audit career.

What will you be doing?

  • Gaining exposure to EY, our colleagues of all levels, a broad range of clients and their stakeholders.
  • Working with clients big and small – from start-ups to governments – helping them solve fresh business and technical challenges.
  • Taking part in a specific business area case study.
  • Developing core skills in business writing, effective time management, client service and personal brand through structured learning and self-directed learning.

How is it structured?

Join a supportive and inclusive culture, build your strengths and develop new business skills. Working on client projects, gain an insight into our service offerings and become an integral part of our team. We're proud to have won awards for being one of the best companies to work for.

Be completely immersed in the world of work at EY. Develop an understanding of how our Assurance teams work. And get ready to work alongside graduates on real client projects. If you're proactive, unafraid to ask the right questions and keen to tackle every challenge you face, you might even be fast-tracked into a graduate role. This is just beginning of a varied career that could take you anywhere.

Across your four-week summer internship, dive into a variety of activities that will see you pick up brand-new skills, develop your strengths and prepare for tomorrow. Enjoy programme-specific client work, the chance to complete a qualification and even regular lunch and learns – plus get paid for the experience.

As well as contributing to client projects, take on extra learning opportunities that broaden your experience in business, leadership and technology. Why not check out online learning hub too? We host a whole library of training courses on a vast number of topics. So, have a browse and start learning.

Another great EY perk? We offer community days – meaning you can get hands on locally while raising money for the EY Foundation. What’s more, our offices are social hubs fuelled by community spirit. Network, get to know your fellow interns and have fun!

No matter which area you join, the support we offer never wavers. Pair up with a buddy, get career advice from one of our counsellors, and say hello to our early careers team. Everyone is here to give you the best start to your future – so get ready to thrive.

Technology in Assurance

From implementing digital approaches into our global audit methodology to processing millions of transactions into visual analytics solutions, innovation and technology are at the heart of this programme. Enjoy structured training that will provide you with all the digital technology skills you need and support us in driving our strategy as we shape the future of auditing.

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.
