EY Careers Overview - Graduates

An introduction to EY, our global culture and what graduates mean to our business

What is Transactions at EY?

Economies are fuelled by competitive organisations who buy, sell, merge or restructure parts of their business with others. Our job is to help them do all that while making more informed decisions and building better strategies.

What will you be doing?

We have a range of opportunities within our Transactions business area, from Advisory and Corporate Finance to Restructuring and Business Modelling. Whichever area you choose, you’ll learn how we give clients quality advice about how they can improve their business, start developing your own skills in that field and will soon be working on real client projects. Other tasks might include:

  • Working with some of the world’s largest companies
  • Helping organisations make decisions that can affect the health of their business
  • Taking ownership of complex, sometimes high-profile projects
  • Communicating and working with diverse teams of colleagues and clients across global locations.

Throughout the programme, and depending on which one you choose, you’ll have the chance to study for professional qualifications with institutes like ICAEW. You’ll also have access to learning and development opportunities with our in-house experts, so you can work towards a promotion by the time you complete the programme.

Do you have the strategic thinking and knack for numbers needed to work in transactions?

Entry requirements

Each of our Transactions graduate programmes have different entry requirements. For some, you’ll need an honours degree in any STEM subject, while others will require a subject relevant to your business area. You’ll also need a minimum of Level 2/GCSE (or equivalent) in English Language & Maths, three A-levels, 5 Highers or equivalent by the time the programme starts.

“I’m really making a difference to the firm, to our clients, and I’m really encouraged in my career.”  Lizzie, graduate in Corporate Finance
