Tax at EY

At EY, no question is too small, too ambitious or too imaginative. We use our curiosity to ask better questions, that inspire better answers. That’s how we build a better working world.

Reimagining Careers

At EY, we're reimagining careers so you can personalise yours like a playlist

In our Tax teams, you’ll provide a full suite of tax services to everyone, from influential multi-national companies to fast-growing entrepreneurial start-ups, managing every element of their business’s tax affairs and tax risk policies. You’ll grow your understanding of how tax relates to our modern world. You’ll build skills that will set you up for the future. And you’ll drive a better working world.

Here, your career is truly yours to build. Experience our world. Your way.

We help local and global entrepreneurs, high-net-worth individuals and organisations manage every element of their business’s tax. And as a function, Tax has changed more than ever in the past five years. Not only is Tax broader in its operations, but it’s also more digital. From bots that do our number crunching to artificial intelligence that inspires our innovations, Tax is no longer bound to Excel, it’s boundless.

Tax is one of our most central business areas and we work across our entire organisation to shape strategies of the future. 

Technology in Tax

Innovation is a mindset we follow and an environment we create. You’ll work closely with teams across borders, using our cutting-edge technology tools and networks to solve complex business and tax problems. By combining the power of EY’s tax experience with innovative technology, you can help us transform the tax function of the future.

What will you be doing?

You’ll build a career that’s yours to own. With infinite opportunities to lead, learn and transform, we’ll empower you to use your voice to influence decisions and build a world as unique as you. Here you will:

  • Work across various specialist tax teams within UK & Ireland or Financial Services
  • Work directly on technical research alongside senior colleagues
  • Work alongside audit teams assisting in the review of tax disclosures and other tax items in the accounts
  • Collaborate with global EY teams on tax compliance engagements and gain an overview of tax requirements worldwide
  • Build important relationships with clients through meetings and day-to-day work 

Programme duration: 4 years and 4 months
