Open to all, regardless of gender, this programme is to inspire and support students seeking an experience in professional services, and is part of our continued commitment to improve our female representation by showcasing some of our inspiring female leaders. The programme focuses on supporting you through our application process, developing skills and provides an insight into the opportunities available at PwC.
What you’ll do
During this three-day paid placement, you’ll work closely with a variety of people at all grades to learn what it's like to work at PwC, experiencing first hand the nature of the work that we do.
You’ll choose which office you'd like to come to and which area of the business you're interested in. You’ll spend time with lots of different people, from graduates to senior leaders, attending meetings and working with our clients and teams to get real exposure to our business. Our Women in Business programme is available nationally and the opportunities will be running over the Easter and summer holidays (restrictions for some areas).
You should also have done plenty of research into the area of PwC you'd like to join. We strongly advise you to apply for the business area and office that interests you the most as any subsequent offers will be made for this area only.
The tax landscape is constantly changing. Your knowledge will help high-profile organisations, entrepreneurs and family businesses understand complex rules and make informed decisions with significant impacts. You’ll also help governments ensure the efficient operation of tax systems and use your insight to solve long-term problems.
Our expertise covers every conceivable area of taxation, with more than 4,000 tax experts proactively engaging in the tax policy debate and focused on leading views and new ideas. We’re looking for people who are flexible, ready to build strong relationships and networks, and demonstrate leadership.
