What do you need to apply?

We operate an open access to all policy and we don’t screen out any applications only on your academic performance at GCSE or A-Level. However, you’ll need a minimum of Level 2/GCSE (or equivalent) in English Language & Maths and to have completed three A-levels, five Scottish Highers or equivalent by the time the programme starts. It is therefore important that you provide us with your top three obtained or accurately predicted A-Levels (or equivalent) as these will be verified and considered as part of the offer process should you be successful. Any drop in grades could jeopardise your offer of employment.

How is the Tax Apprenticeship structured?

Developing your understanding of local and international tax laws is at the heart of this apprenticeship. After an EY induction you’ll join your team in either Financial Services or UK & Ireland where you will specialise in a particular area of Tax. Wherever you’re based, you’ll be learning on-the-job, have access to coaching and training opportunities and lots of support from your team, too. In your first year you’ll also begin working towards your professional qualifications. All apprentices will study for a CFAB qualification, which leads to full ACA qualification with a potential further option to complete the CTA.

Over the course of the apprenticeship you’ll build invaluable business skills and knowledge that will ready you for a brilliant career, wherever you set your sights.
