Assurance Apprenticeship Programme – EY, Belfast


About the programme

Join our Level 7 Assurance Apprenticeship Programme and you’ll learn all about how advanced technologies integrate into the world of audit. Although Audit and Assurance has its roots in accountancy, that’s just the beginning of the story. Forget endless number crunching – you’ll also be working with EY clients, reviewing strategy, assessing risk, forecasting growth and more. You’ll see how our digital capabilities enable us to develop unique client solutions with the power to redefine business. You’ll collaborate with clients, colleagues, across business areas and beyond borders. Here, we’ll give you everything you need to build a career to be proud of.


What will you be doing?

  • Getting to know our clients, their businesses and how they work
  • Testing checks and balances to ensure they work how they’re supposed to
  • Analysing the data that goes into a financial statement to make sure it is true and fair
  • You’ll spend substantial periods of time with clients
