A position on our School and College Leaver programme is one of the best ways to kickstart your career with PwC. All of our School and College Leaver programmes are designed to help you develop your business skills through real client work, while also completing formal training and studying towards qualifications to give you a head start in your career. PwC will provide you with support all the way. You’ll earn a competitive salary, benefit from our excellent support networks and have the opportunity to continually progress your career. Just like our graduate joiners, you’ll work on varied and challenging client and internal projects, which make a real difference to the world of business. You’ll be coached by our people, who are experts in their field, and at the same time, thanks to our study support, you won’t need to worry about paying for course and exam fees, textbooks or revision materials.
What you’ll do
You’ll typically find yourself working as part of a team of anything from 2 to 30 people or more, working on projects that can be based anywhere from the UK to the USA, or Middle East to Africa. Our Client projects are resourced Nationally, so travelling and living away from home will be required. When you are not on a project you are expected to be based out of your home office.
You’ll spend a lot of time with clients at their base locations dealing with issues as they arise, and gaining valuable exposure to different types of projects, internal and external, and diverse industries.
You’ll carry out detailed analysis and help make recommendations that change our clients’ businesses. This experience, combined with deep technical training, an emphasis on continual learning through different projects and the opportunity to work on internal support roles to gain specialist knowledge from within the network, will equip you with the skills to really make a difference.
We’ll monitor your development so you know how you’re doing and where you can improve. At this early stage in your career you’ll have access to inspirational leaders and this, coupled with the quality of the training you’ll receive, means you’ll become a recognised expert in the profession.
