Hear from our past interns

Cliodhna – Tax

From Monday to Thursday we are assigned work to do within our department, while Fridays’ are reserved for the summer intern programme. I have been fortunate enough to be involved with tax returns, client briefings, due diligence work and am currently completing a data analytics project for my department. It is genuinely amazing to be involved in work that will affect the future growth of an organisation as large as PwC, things I never imagined for an intern.

Cliodhna, summer internship in tax — PwC Ireland.

Cora – Consulting

I can honestly say that the internship has taught me so much more than I ever expected – I’m leaving with a fantastic knowledge of the professional services, friends and connections that I will have for life and a really great idea of the direction I hope my future will go in. Overall, it’s been an experience of a lifetime and I couldn’t recommend it enough – no matter what background you’re coming from!

Jasmine – Assurance

The first qualities that stood out to me when I started were the office culture and advocacy of teamwork. I was assigned a buddy and she greatly facilitated my joining the firm. As I had studied Economics and Finance, I felt assurance and accounting could present a challenge. Although it was indeed different to what I was used to, it took no time at all before I felt I could add value to my audit team. This was down to the excellent on-the-job training and continual coaching I received from colleagues.

Kim – Tax

The PwC summer internship programme is a brilliant way to gain hands on practical experience working in a professional environment. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and much of this is because of the people at PwC as well as the inclusive culture at the firm. The internship is excellently structured and strikes the perfect balance between work in the office, training and social aspects.

Mark – Assurance

As an intern, you’re assigned to a team (the size depending on how much work the client requires) where you work alongside associates, managers and partners to complete the audit of the company. One of the nice things about working on different clients is working in different teams and meeting new people within PwC. This provides a variety of viewpoints into the firm, be it seeing the work of associates a couple of years older than you to the work of partners who have spent years at PwC. I’ve found that working alongside others has given me more of an insight into the work of PwC.

Michael – Risk assurance

During my summer internship in PwC I was working in the data services team in the risk assurance branch. The work ranged from social media analytics to working on site with clients extracting information from databases. The work was challenging and enjoyable, and I felt that while I was learning so many new skills, I also realised that what am studying in college really stood to me in terms of understanding the processes and importance of data analytics.

Robbie, summer internship in advisory — PwC Ireland.

Robbie – Advisory

My summer spent as part of PwC's deals team was extremely rewarding. My fellow interns and I got to see how experienced professionals handled mergers and acquisitions. Not only that, the work we carried out was integrated into projects and represented real importance. The chance to see our work contributing towards a final version was very exciting. I feel that I finished the internship with a wonderful network of contacts and friends.

Sam – Consulting

I actually entered the PwC summer internship programme through the Phil society in my university. They ran a business pitch competition that gave contestants the chance to win an internship, and that’s how I’m here now! I’m working as a digital consultant intern within the Technology team in Advisory. Within my first week I got to go out on client site and sit in on a high-level meeting with senior client directors, making me feel like I was really an employee of PwC.

Sipho – Assurance

A highlight for me of the PwC internship programme is the Friday programme - which helps develop new and existing skills for working life. Friday’s have not just been a break from client jobs but an opportunity to enhance our skills and be informed about the great opportunities that awaits us; within PwC Ireland and the global network at large. Not only that, my knowledge on my career path and the global economy improves from these sessions.
