We recognise that to bring value to our clients, we need to provide the best advice around technological innovation. With us, you’ll be at the forefront of new initiatives and explore emerging technologies and trends to help businesses. Whether that’s helping clients understand how technology can help them unlock their potential and protect their businesses, or using big data to provide insight and help steer strategy.
Managing Technology Risk and establishing confidence and integrity is vital in business, especially in the digital world, as you’re no longer able to see who you’re liaising with. Without trust, customers are less inclined to hand over their details to purchase from you; and suppliers are less likely to supply goods and services to you. Our clients need to know how to secure the data they hold. We help them achieve this. We help our clients build trust in their technology, to have the confidence to rely on it to help them run their businesses.
We work with our clients to create a business strategy that is fit for the digital age. From there, we help them implement processes and controls that strengthen their technology structure and resilience, and minimise risk.
We predominantly focus on assurance and consulting engagements supporting clients in the areas of IT Risk. This covers all aspects of Technology for our clients organisations, particularly in the following areas, IT Strategy & Transformation, Digital Integration, IT Operations, Emerging Technology and Technology Audit.
You’ll be working across all industry sectors, with client opportunities across the UK. You’ll predominantly focus on assurance and advisory engagements for clients in a variety of areas that address IT risk relating to cyber security, IT governance, business continuity and disaster recovery, or infrastructure. You’ll either be part of the year-end audit team delivering assurance over the client’s IT systems or provide advice to clients in implementing effective IT controls to build trust.
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.
