Job description

The PwC Deal
No matter which area of the business you choose to join, all routes offer the same deal. The opportunity to grow as an individual, to meet new people, and build lasting relationships that will stay with you for life. Your hard work will be rewarded with a competitive salary and a personally tailored benefits package.

Undergraduate work placement
These eleven-month placements are for students who need to complete a placement as part of their degree. You'll work alongside graduate trainees and experienced professionals on everyday projects. So you'll get a good insight into working life at PwC. You could leave with a graduate job offer before you start final year.

Research and insight role
PwC’s Research to Insight (r2i), based in Belfast is PwC’s specialist provider that delivers research, modelling, analytics, and insight for global clients, ranging from FTSE100 companies to national governments.

Put simply, we help our clients to better understand their customers, employees and market channels. We use a variety of data sources & techniques to help turn data into insight.

We recently undertook a large project for the Market Research Society - did you know that the Research & Data Market has grown by more than £1bn in the last 5 years?

We are currently looking for ambitious Business Placement Students who have a Technical aptitude and passion for working with data to join our team:

  • You'll work alongside others who love data
  • You’ll interrogate, transform, analyse and visualise large datasets using SPSS
  • You’ll develop tangible experience and skills around various online reporting platforms & technologies such as Qlikview & Tableau
  • You’ll help identify trends and patterns in data, helping to provide insight for our clients

If you are keen to develop your technical data capabilities, whilst gaining cross industry experience then this role is for you!

This role will help support and meet the growth plans for r2i. The successful candidates will be mentored and supported by a senior member of staff.

What you'll gain
By experiencing life inside one of the world's largest professional services organisations, you'll have a fantastic opportunity to build and work on your commercial awareness and interpersonal skills. Nothing can beat on-the-job experience for developing your skills - and you'll get plenty of it, both within PwC and on-site with clients - but we'll also steer you in the direction of appropriate training courses to develop you further. We'll also be looking to boost your ability to soak up complex business information, as well as your professional confidence - factors which will make a real difference when you return for your last year at university.

What you need to get in

  • You'll need be on course for a 2.1 degree or above in an Technology/STEM related discipline e.g. Computer Science, Software Engineering, Maths, Physics, Computer Forensics, Artificial Intelligence
  • You'll need to be on four-year degree programme that features a sandwich placement element

Outstanding potential takes many forms and academic success is just one measure. That's why we have our 'Outstanding Achievement' entry route - it's an innovative way we're able to support applications from people who may not have met the academic requirements we're looking for, but have excelled in something else.

We know that the skills and experiences you develop with us will stay with you throughout your career. So join PwC. We'll help you reach your full potential.

Take the opportunity of a lifetime.
