← Back to opportunities

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.

Duration of programme: 3 years

What will you be doing?

  • Learning about EY, our clients and their businesses.
  • Understand the IT landscape of some of our biggest clients, including their adoption of cloud, use of Artificial Intelligence and Robotic Process Automation, and assure and advise on the associated risks.
  • Work on client projects and attend 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.
  • Assist in the project management of client engagements.
  • Work closely with Assurance colleagues to identify and communicate risks affecting the financial audit.
  • Get involved with industry research and client thought leadership.

During your first few weeks you will participate in our EY induction and be immersed in training alongside your peers from across the UK. You will learn about EY and Technology Risk. After this you will then join a project team and start working on client projects.

Throughout your time on the graduate programme you will build relationships with clients, support your team and work closely with your coach to agree and achieve career development goals. Your colleagues will provide on-the-job learning, so make sure you ask lots of questions!
