EY Business Apprenticeship

If you’re ready to start your career in the workplace and keen to avoid student debt then apply to join the EY Business Apprenticeship.

This new training programme lets you join EY straight after school or college — just as some of their our directors and partners did. You’ll go straight into a full-time job with a starting salary of up to £21,500, giving you independence and responsibility — without going to university first. When you qualify, you’ll have the same professional qualification you’d normally study for after university, and you’ll earn this sooner than a graduate, with the same career options to look forward to.

You’ll be given challenging work on a diverse range of projects and clients, developing a host of transferable skills, and receive on-the job coaching to support you and ensure that you reach your potential. And with opportunities across the UK, you’ll receive the same world-class training and experience no matter which UK office you join.


If you are currently at school/college, you must be completing 3 A levels, 5 Highers or equivalent qualifications.

If you are now working, you must have attained 3 A levels, 5 Highers or equivalent qualifications.
