E&Y graduates get taste of working life

Three month work placement for students

Eighteen students from
Ernst
& Young’s accountancy degree programme
– offered by the
University of Lancaster – are getting a
taste of life in the real world, the firm has revealed.

The students are one month into a three month placement at Ernst & Young
offices across the UK– from London, Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester and Edinburgh
– as part of the four-year sandwich degree.

They have joined the firm at one of the busiest times of the year for
auditors – the end of the reporting season.

Ernst & Young degree student, Ben Dickinson, who is completing his
placement at the firm’s London office said: ‘I wanted to distinguish myself from
other graduates and the opportunity to combine academic study, work placement
and a fast-track to chartered accountancy qualification was not to be missed.’

Partner Riaz Shah, Ernst & Young’s head of people and operations in its
assurance practice, said: ‘The Ernst & Young degree offers undergraduates an
unrivalled opportunity to genuinely get ahead in their careers and the
experience of working with a global firm. In turn, we benefit from the energy,
enthusiasm and drive these students bring to the firm during their placements
and the cumulative experience they will bring with them on joining the firm as
graduates.’
