EY apprenticeship programme opportunities in Edinburgh

EY is currently recruiting two analysts, based in Edinburgh, for its EY Apprenticeship programme. The programme is aimed at school leavers; it provides a great opportunity with a multinational firm in a busy Edinburgh team helping to restructure solvent groups and companies.  The successful candidates would gain professional experience in the workplace and be mentored to work through their professional qualification through ICAS (Institute of Chartered Accountant Scotland).  Once completed, they could expect to be a qualified Chartered Accountant in 4.5 years, earning a good salary while training.

The application process/assessment is available online with case studies, tips and information available. The interview process would be held via video to take account of current restrictions.

If you require further information please email the school and someone will call you back.

Winter 2019/20 Respiratory Illness

Key advice for parents and carers
In the home the risk of catching or spreading flu/cold like illness can be reduced by:
• Regular hand washing with liquid soap and running water
• Covering nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing
• Using a disposable paper tissue, disposed off immediately after use.
• You can teach your child to sneeze into the ‘crook’ of their arm rather than their hands, if they don’t have a tissue. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQINuSTP1jI
• Good general cleaning of surface that everyone touches often e.g. TV remote, light switches, door handles, toilet flushes and tap heads.
