Graduate work placement, Firmwide, London, 2018

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.

Graduate work placement
Our graduate work placement gives you an opportunity to get ten months practical work experience with us. You'll join us, and get an induction to PwC, and then you'll jump straight into the role to learn through on- the-job training, as well as studying towards becoming a Chartered Accountant. This learning and study approach gives you a real feel for the work we do.

If you're serious about exploring a career in professional services then join us on a ten month graduate work placement running from September 2018. If you do well, we will fast track your application for a graduate position and if successful, you could join us on our graduate programme commencing Autumn 2019. Our expectations of you while on the graduate work placement will be just as high as those on the graduate programme. So the application and selection process is the same as if you'd join us on our graduate programme.

You'll be joining PwC to work where our business has the most need which could be in any of our lines of service: Assurance, Consulting, Tax or Deals. It will be a demanding role that may give the opportunity to gain experience across lots of different parts of our business, or it may mean you spend most of your time in one area. You'll be based in London but you'll be in demand and needed where the business wants you and if this is the case you'll need to work in other locations across the UK. All of this means that we're looking for resilient, intelligent graduates who are able to be agile, flexible in their working style, and above all, quick to learn.

Who this is for
You must be serious about a possible career with PwC. You need the same academic qualifications, skills and qualities we look for with joiners onto our graduate programme. What's more, although the work placement gives you a little more flexibility around the way you join us, you should take advantage of it if your goal is to return to us on a graduate programme.

The work placement is also a great opportunity if you're keen to build in some travelling time before you start your full-time career, as after the work placement you could still go travelling or do some voluntary work between completing the work placement, and re-joining as a graduate, if you're made a job offer.

Whatever your plans, if you've already taken the first steps in your career, you'll have added job security, more experience and of course, healthier finances.

What you'll gain
You'll study towards the Certificate in Finance, Accounting and Business (CFAB) with the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales (ICAEW). The CFAB is your first step to becoming a Chartered Accountant.

What you need to get in
  • You'll need to have or be on course for a 2.1 degree or above in any subject
Do you need sponsorship to work in the UK?
We can't provide sponsorship for our work placements.

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.
