Assurance Summer Internships

Get a real feel for the business world with on-the-job experience and opportunities to meet influential experts. You’ll learn about what it takes to audit a business while developing skills that’ll complement your career. 

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. 

What will you be doing? 

You’ll join a team in either Assurance, IT Risk and Assurance or Business Risk Services and start learning about the audit process, the scope of our clients’ businesses and the industries they’re a part of. You’ll contribute to real client projects alongside graduates. Your work could include: 

  • Getting to know our clients’ businesses, their strengths and weaknesses
  • Developing your data management, extraction, analysis and visualisation skills
  • Developing skills and ideas to lead teams and projects in the future
  • Working with cutting-edge technologies 
  • Sharing analysis and solutions with clients
  • Reviewing documentation on Risk Tech projects

You may also be required to take on more work, and you should be amenable to longer hours and spending a greater amount of time working away from home, particularly during busy season. You can expect to spend a high proportion of your time on client site too.

You’ll have the opportunity to take part in web-based training, shadow senior colleagues and even visit clients’ offices. 

If everything works out well, you could even secure a job here after you graduate.

Entry requirements

If you’re in your penultimate year at university (any degree course) or, if you’re already in your final year but will be doing a one-year master’s degree or taking a gap year, this internship is for you. You’ll also need to have obtained a minimum of Level 2 GCSE (or equivalent) in English Language and Maths as well as three A-levels, 5 Highers or equivalent.

“They offer so many opportunities, even at the level of an internship” Henry, Summer Intern, Assurance
