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.
