To stay competitive, companies often need to buy, sell, merge or restructure parts of their business. Join the EY Transaction Business Apprenticeship Programme and you’ll help organisations stay ahead of the competition while earning a great salary, gaining invaluable work experience and studying for a professional qualification.

What is Transactions at EY?

Economies are fuelled by competitive organisations who buy, sell, merge or restructure parts of their business with others. Transactions help organisations do all that while making more informed decisions and building better strategies. In Restructuring, we advise organisations – and other affected parties – when they are underperforming or in distress, on the best course of action. Through independent analysis, we help them either get back on track or go through insolvency procedures like administration or receivership.

What will you be doing? 

As part of our team, you’ll get straight to work on real client projects. Over the course of the programme you can expect to contribute to challenging assignments, learn how to make quick, practical decisions and work through problems with conviction in your process. You’ll also be: 

  • Solving urgent and important business problems by analysing  data and proposing solutions for underperforming businesses 

  • Undertaking an arrange of tasks required to manage a company that is going through an insolvency process

  • Assisting with solvent and insolvent liquidation processes 

Throughout, you’ll study to become a qualified chartered accountant through the ICAEW in England or ICAS in Scotland, and you’ll have support from your team, too. At the end of the programme, you’ll have gained professional qualifications, lots of practical experience and built a strong network of mentors and peers to help you keep developing. 

Qualifications you’ll gain

Professional qualifications in chartered accountancy with the ICAEW in England or ICAS in Scotland, and a Level 7 Apprenticeship in accountancy and taxation

Entry requirements

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.

“Each client you work with is different and unique and therefore you need to be able to problem solve and think outside of the box to come up with the right solution for the client.” Rozalie, Transactions Restructuring Business Apprenticeship, London
