Michael Quinlivan - Assurance

Bachelor of Education, Mary Immaculate College Limerick
Masters in Business Information and Systems, UCC

Coming from a primary school teaching and business information systems background, I hadn't done any accountancy since leaving cert. Adapting to this was challenging at the start but the support provided in PwC is second to none. In my three years with the firm I have done training each year which has helped a lot.

Roshni Nath - Risk assurance

Bachelors in Engineering - Electronics and Telecommunication, Nagpul University, India
MSc Business Analytics, UCD

Right from the first day at PwC, from the interview invitation to my joining date, it has been a fantastic journey. As I come from an IT background, PwC provides me with good exposure to the business side while still being able to leverage upon my past experiences. I enjoy working with data and analysing it and PwC offers a wide range of projects to work on and clients to work with - every piece of work is challenging and keeps me engrossed.

Eric Dunne - Tax

BA (Mod) in Molecular Medicine, TCD

I studied science at Trinity so I had no previous accounting or tax knowledge but I was interested in professional services. I wanted to learn from the best in the industry, and once I came in for my interview, PwC was the obvious choice. The support I got throughout my accountancy exams really helped me to succeed. I’ve been with the firm for nearly a year now and the time has flown by. Teamwork is at the centre of everything and I’m lucky to learn from some fantastic people.

Hannah Butler - Consulting

Law and French, UCC
MSc Management, Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School

When it came to applying for a job, I knew I wanted to be a management consultant but it was when I came into the PwC office in Spencer Dock for interview that I realised this definitely was the firm for me. The building, the professionalism of the interview process and the people I met – it all just seemed like a good fit. I am on the operational effectiveness team where we help our clients optimise their performance by improving the efficiency and effectiveness of their operating processes.

From day one as an intern, PwC felt like the right fit – and that’s why I came back for the graduate programme. There’s a huge emphasis on training and development here, whether that’s provided by the learning and development team, your colleagues or on-the-job training. The open office environment means that everyone from your buddy to your managers and partners are so approachable. Their support and investment in my career development has helped me become a confident and well-informed tax advisor.

Laura Demery - Consulting

Business, Economics and Social Studies, TCD

Having completed the summer internship programme at PwC, I’d seen first-hand the opportunities that the chartered accountancy qualification could create for me, and I felt PwC was the best place to obtain this experience. I believed the graduate programme would lay the perfect foundation for a successful career in business. I started working with PwC Ireland in the asset and wealth management (funds) audit department. I have recently moved to the consulting team.

Stephen Gallagher - Consulting

Computer Science, UCD

The reason I wanted to work for PwC was the impression that I came away from the interview with of my team leads. It felt more like a chat to see if we would work well together than your typical interview. The short time between the interview and offer processes was a nice touch. I now work as part of PwC’s cyber team, providing a range of services to clients that help them assess, build and manage their cyber security capabilities, and respond to incidents and crises.
