PwC Recruitment Process

Shedding a light on the recruitment process

Our selection process consists of a number of stages through which we come to understand your experience and motivation.

Details on the stages are below, but they can vary from country to country. Familiarise yourself with all of them and after you have applied, a manager will confirm what your next steps are!  

Working with us, you will have unique access to global knowledge networks and the opportunity to learn from highly skilled professionals

Candidate journey in PwC


Your journey starts with the application. When you apply for a job on our webpage, you will be asked to create an account to our personal system Workday. In your Workday account you can check the progress of our application during the recruitment process.

Game-based assessment

Once your application is accepted by a recruiter, you will get an email invitation to a quick and enjoyable set of games. You will be asked to undertake a series of short challenges, which are designed to measure several different skills and abilities in an interactive and stimulating way. Those should take you no more than 15 minutes.
After the assessment, you will receive an insight report with feedback on your performance via email. Please note that this will not be a final assessment nor recruitment result. These will be provided by a recruiter who will get in touch with you after the assessment.

You can be assigned also with some other online test(s) - English language test or some technical test (e.g. Accounting) if applicable for given position in your territory.

Video interview

This is a unique opportunity to bring your application to life and to stand out from the rest. A video interview shows who you are much better than a paper cover letter attached to your CV. Learn more about our video interview tool that has replaced the pre-screening step of the selection process. You can choose the time and place, and you can arrange to respond to the questions at your own convenience.

Assessment Center

The assessment center is a full-day event consisting of two to three stages, such as group exercises, interviews and exams.
