Technology Risk Graduate Programme 

Help organisations identify and manage their technology risks whilst simultaneously gaining skills to develop a career in professional services. And embark on a career journey you can own, shape and grow. 

About the programme

Technology is at the heart of most modern organisations. As well as opening a world of opportunities, technology exposes organisations to a variety of risks. We help our clients to identify and manage these risks to protect their stakeholders. Alongside our Assurance colleagues we help clients protect their reputation by mitigating these business and IT risks.

EY Graduate opportunities

If you’ve graduated from university, or will do soon, one of our graduate programmes could be for you. Work with interesting clients, earn a salary and study for a qualification. Watch to hear from our current graduates.

What will you be doing?

  • Learning about EY, our clients and their businesses.
  • Understanding the IT landscape of some of our biggest clients, including their adoption of cloud, use of Artificial Intelligence and Robotic Process Automation, and assuring and advising on the associated risks.
  • Working on client projects and attending client meetings to identify risks, test controls and provide an opinion on the security of the clients IT environment.
  • Analysing data, liaising with clients and presenting your work.

How is it structured?

Join us and work towards a Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) Certificate in Business Accounting for Financial Services and the Chartered Management Consultant accreditation for UK & Ireland. 

In your first week, you'll participate in our EY induction where you will be immersed in training alongside your peers from across the UK and learn about Technology Risk. Following your induction, you'll join your local office where you will meet your EY colleagues including your career coach and start working on various projects across our global client accounts.

Year one

During your first year with us, you'll complete the ICAEW Certificate in Finance, Accounting and Business (CFAB) – it’s a lot of learning but you'll have plenty of support from your team, mentors and career coach.

Year two

Having completed the CFAB (Certificate in Finance, Accounting and Business) examinations in your first year, you'll decide whether to continue with the ICAEW Chartered Accountant (ACA) qualification. 

Alongside our programme offering, we give you all the training and exposure to real-world work you could want. We also offer company-wide and programme-specific rewards that make all the hard work worthwhile. These include wellbeing initiatives, a free tech MBA, healthcare support, a pension scheme and more. 

This is where your adventure begins and where you have every opportunity to build an exceptional experience. Embrace the challenge as you help us build a better working world for everyone.

Are you eligible to apply?

We operate an open access policy, meaning we don’t screen out applications on your academic performance alone. You will, however, need to be working towards an honour’s degree in any subject, have a minimum of grade 4/C GCSE (or equivalent) in English Language and Maths, and three A-levels/Five Highers (or equivalent). 

We welcome applications from all academic backgrounds and are looking for people who will succeed at EY today and tomorrow. That's why, through our recruitment process, your academic performance will be considered against your online assessment scores to determine your suitability for an EY role. We’re also proud to partner with RARE recruitment, so that your application can be processed in the context of your socio-economic background.
