An internship is a brilliant opportunity to see first hand what it’s like to work here. It’s fast-paced and dynamic, and that means that the development you get from it is rapid, too. You get structured weekly training sessions to grow your interpersonal and technical skills, and the opportunity to grow your network. The fantastic work-life balance and the friends you’ll make during your internship make for a really memorable summer.
One of the best things about working at PwC is definitely the people and friendly atmosphere. I see my work friends as an extended family, between working with them and the events we go to together. My friends working in other organisations envy the close bond all the interns have here. In other firms, there seems to be more of a divide between work life and social life. Here at PwC, they mix on a daily basis.
As part of my degree, I am completing my work placement in the FDI Tax department. An internship here is a great opportunity to find out more about the business and to see if professional services is the career for you. From the very first day when I attended my interview, the friendly culture stood out, and I knew that this was where I wanted to work. I can’t recommend an internship here enough.
I joined the Summer Internship programme knowing it was an incredible opportunity to further develop my career. But I quickly realised that PwC offers so much more - whether that’s the social events that helps you to meet new people across the firm, or the opportunities to travel for secondment. The company strives to create a great work-life balance, and it was a great experience to spend my summer here.
The culture and working environment in the firm are fantastic, and it was an easy decision to apply for a summer internship. I thoroughly enjoyed the responsibility handed to me from the very first day. Straight out of onboarding, I was on client site with my team, attending meetings, gaining insights into our clients’ business and helping them achieve their goals. It is thoroughly rewarding to be involved and have an input, especially when you are an intern.
