At PwC, we're committed to helping people develop market-leading expertise that is relevant to their job, their clients and our PwC vision, values and strategy. This means that we develop not only your technical expertise, but also your commercial and interpersonal skills too. We think that learning at PwC should be readily available in a diverse range of experiences ranging from formal classroom sessions, working on complex client projects, working in different teams or locations, working on different clients and/or industries, solving interesting business problems and coaching conversations.
In your first two to three years you’ll focus on getting a good balance of business, personal and technical skills. For many, working towards a professional qualification will be part of your technical skills training.
You may experience different methods of learning, as we appreciate that people like to learn using different techniques, and benefit from the flexibility this brings. Methods range from classroom courses, e-learning and remote study supported by mobile and online learning tools, all are designed to help you build the skills and knowledge you need.
Professional Qualifications open up world of possibilities. We understand working towards a professional qualification is a significant commitment and requires self-discipline and motivation to achieve technical depth. But that’s not all. We have a strong set of programmes to ensure we develop long-standing relationships and can talk fluently about business blends, moves and opportunities. For our highest potential people there are exclusive programmes to develop Key Talent and Leadership.
Everyone is different, and we’ll make sure you have the support, guidance and advice you need. You’ll start having constructive and informative, one-to-one conversations about your development goals early, to build understanding of both us, and your longer-term opportunities.
We pride ourselves on making sure our people continuously give and get, constructive, focused feedback, and you will too. We’ll encourage you to sum up your performance first, and then get the views of others, which you then evaluate with your Coach, to set goals and objectives. The aim is to help you learn from, and build on your experiences, and the experiences of others. It works both ways too. You’ll regularly be asked to give feedback on the people you work with as part of their appraisal.
We are a global company and offer you with a variety of career opportunities to broaden your skills. You will receive support through coaching, have opportunities to gain new experience in interesting projects, secondments, internal transfers between teams and departments or build a specialization. You can also take advantage of flexible working options, if you – later on – decide that you need more time for further studies, family, travel or hobbies. You will be the one building your own career path.
Living and working in another country or spending time in another service line can generate both personal and professional reward for you. You can improve your skills and expertise, broaden your cultural awareness, expand your network, increase confidence in dealing with challenging situations and learn from exposure to new ideas and processes. All this can also speed up your career progression.
These days most people working with us have a mobile device of one type or another. This provides new and exciting possibilities in the way we educate and communicate with our people – new possibilities in the type of media we can create and deliver, new possibilities in the way you receive and “consume” the media. Our IQ application provides you with secure access to PwC videos, podcasts, quick-reference guides, and mLearns – short e-learns for mobile devices.
At PwC, we make sure that your education does not stop once you have joined the firm. In fact, that is only the beginning!
As a new joiner in Assurance, you will embark on a journey towards a globally recognised accounting qualification - ACCA. Consisting of fourteen exams on areas spanning from audit, tax and law to business analysis, corporate finance and strategic management, ACCA is as comprehensive as it is prestigious.
We will grant you full support throughout your studies; you will attend state of the art training courses offered by PwC’s Academy which is dedicated to your exam success. You will be guided by some of the most experienced tutors in their field, carefully selected for their professionalism and years of practical experiences. At the end of your journey which will take you approximately four years, you will become a member of the largest international accountancy body, certifying your outstanding theoretical as well as practical skills in a modern business environment.
In Advisory, if you are joining the Deals group you will pursue the ACCA qualification, together with your Assurance peers.
In Consulting you won’t need any additional professional qualifications, and the emphasis will instead be on developing depth in specific tools and techniques.
