Graduate scheme

Are you at university and thinking about where your career will take you? Join the Tax Associate Graduate Programme in London and work towards a new qualification while gaining invaluable work experience.

What is the Tax Associate Graduate Programme?

This is a three-year paid graduate programme working within the US/UK Cross Border tax division, a business area that deals with US and UK tax compliance research. You'll gain practical experience in different areas of tax, including helping our private clients manage risk. You'll also learn more about your strengths, get help and support from experienced colleagues, and earn a qualification.

You will:

  • Specialise in either UK Tax or a dual handler (UK/US Tax) role — the choice is yours
  • Work with start-ups, large corporations and high-profile individuals in your chosen field, learning important communication and practical skills as you grow
  • Learn on the job alongside other tax assistants and tax managers
  • Gain practical experience doing complex client work.

What are the benefits?

This programme will allow you to become part of our exciting company culture as you discover where a career in Tax at EY could take you. As you study, you'll complete tax compliance work, prepare tax returns and develop your commercial awareness, collaborating with clients and government departments as you do so.

Throughout the programme, you’ll have access to an EY buddy and careers counsellor to help you settle in — and once you have, you can take part in further training programmes, earning EY Badges for your achievements. You’ll receive a personal fund to spend towards your wellbeing and have access to our healthcare scheme. You can join our networks and communities and pick up new hobbies or sports with friends and colleagues. Furthermore, you can give back to your local community with two volunteering days a year. Enjoy the chance to network, build connections, thrive in our inclusive, dynamic culture, and be valued for your contributions and unique perspectives.

By the end of the three years, you'll gain a qualification with the Association of Taxation Technicians (ATT) and potentially the Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA). At this point, you'll have the experience and skills to lead UK or UK/US tax returns, identify issues and solve them creatively and be ready to share what you've learned with new joiners.
