EY Business Apprenticeship in Transactions
If you like thinking ahead and you’re good at spotting issues before they become problems, then you’ll like working in Transactions.
Our Transactions teams help our clients to improve growth, competitiveness and profitability. They do this by helping them to raise new finance, providing support in the merging of their company with another to improve performance, or helping those in distress to restructure.
Our new training programme lets you join EY straight after school or college – just as some of our directors and partners did. You’ll go straight into a full-time job with a starting salary of up to £21,500, giving you independence and responsibility – without going to university ﬁrst. When you qualify, you’ll have the same professional qualiﬁcation you’d normally study for after university, and you’ll earn this sooner than a graduate, with the same career options to look forward to.
You’ll be given challenging work on a diverse range of projects and clients, developing a host of transferable skills, and receive on-the job coaching to support you and ensure that you reach your potential. And with opportunities across the UK you’ll receive the same world-class training and experience no matter which UK ofﬁce you join.
Some of the areas EY people working in Transactions are involved with:
Work on business restructuring with our clients
Advise on mergers and acquisitions
Help businesses raise capital in the best way
