E&Y rounds up school leavers

Ernst & Young is giving 60 school leavers a place on its new five-year training scheme

ERNST & YOUNG has launched a new school leavers’ programme, giving more than 60 students a chance to take part in the five-year training scheme.

The first youngsters will join in September 2012 and applications are now open, with learners potentially attracted by the “competitive” salary on offer.

Stephen Isherwood, head of graduate recruitment, said “university is no longer the default” option and this scheme provides “a real alternative, with the chance to be paid as you learn”.

For those who are “focused on accountancy”, the scheme will put them ahead of peers joining the three-year graduate programme, and could give youngsters without the funds to go to university another route into the profession.
