Every employee in PwC has their own career coach to guide them through their career and offer advice and guidance when needed

Networking is a major part of working within the Firm and you will have numerous opportunities to network both inside and outside the Firm from the moment you walk in the door on your very first day

Professional development is very important within PwC and we encourage and support all of our employees to continually improve their qualifications. We provide study support for many courses and classes both internally and externally

We provide paid study leave, well in excess of the industry standard recommended by the institutes.

At PwC, we value the effort it takes to study for your exams and we do everything possible to ensure that you are successful and supported. We have dedicated learning and development teams and lectures to support you in obtaining your professional qualification

From the moment you start your career with PwC, you will meet people that will quickly become your friends and these friendships will last through your entire lifetime. You will meet colleagues that will become much more than teammates, they will be your friends

Working in such a large firm provides plenty of opportunity for developing the skills of people management. From your second year in the Firm, you will have responsibility for someone more junior and you will help them to develop and learn

We encourage you to seek out mentor figures in your early years with the Firm, this will often take a more formal developmental structure as you progress your career to more senior roles.

You will have access at very early stages in your career to senior people within the Firm and across many industries and the opportunity to establish and build your own profile with this audience.

As you progress to the Manager stage of your career, you will be supported through our internal PwC Business Academy which aims to develop your leadership skills, business acumen and technical skills.

At all stages of your career with PwC you will have the opportunity to work closely with and influence those who develop the Firm’s market strategy. Whether it’s in relation to the Budget focus or representation at industry groups, this is a unique opportunity to develop your network and commercial focus.

As part of a truly integrated global network, we don’t just facilitate secondment opportunities, we encourage them. Working for a period of time within the PwC network will provide you with amazing opportunities to travel and experience a different culture while having the safety net of a return to your home office.

You will see annual progression in your salary as you progress through your career with significant jumps at milestone exam/career points.

As you continue to meet performance expectations for your role, you will continue to progress through our grade structure gaining further experience and responsibilities as you go.

While much of our training is delivered locally, we also leverage our global network training resources and you will get the opportunity to attend either EMEA or global training. As you progress your career, you will be given the opportunity to deliver training to more junior colleagues.

We operate in a continuous coaching environment. Regardless of grade, we all need coaching to continue our development journey and it is a Firm priority that you receive this in a timely and appropriate way.

What a successful career in PwC looks like for you is a very personal view but we will provide you with the supports and opportunities to achieve every level of success you strive for.
