EY's SCHOOL LEAVER programme has been named as the best in the UK in the 2014 Allaboutschoolleavers awards.

The Big Four firm also picked up awards for the top sponsored degree, best use of social media, and was runner up in the overall employer category.

BDO also picked up an award for its training regime, and came runner-up to EY for its school leaver programme.

EY has a tie-up with Lancaster University, which sees students take a four-year course including paid work experience with the firm.

The rankings were based on anonymous satisfaction surveys from school and college leavers employed by the companies, and covered a range of factors including job satisfaction, skills development, training, career progression, salary and benefits.

EY head of recruitment Julie Stanbridge said: "We have seen unprecedented demand for our school leaver programme since it launched in 2012 and have doubled the size of the programme in response."

The firm will be taking on 100 school-leavers across the UK and applications are open for September 2014.
