We have people from different backgrounds and with different points of view, and as a leading audit and advisory firm, it is very important for us that we take an active role and become opinion leaders in the Hungarian business community.

4 reasons to join us

Our clients don’t come to us for the easy stuff hence the development of your knowledge, skills, confidence and experience is fundamental. PwC is a perfect workplace to learn from some of the smartest, most diverse and insightful people around.

Taking up challenging projects for a wide range of clients & industries result in dynamic expansion of your business horizons, skillset and technical expertise. Our dedication, integrity and expertise make 85% of Fortune 500 companies trust PwC.

We are committed to developing high-performing professionals. From innovative learning approaches to customised coaching, PwC provides you with support to develop your career. Our work is often challenging but your development never stops!

While we come from different backgrounds and countries, our values define who we are, what we stand for and how we behave. At PwC, we are creating a friendly culture supported by respect and mutual encouragement that enables our people to achieve more.

Life at PwC

We pay particular attention to ensuring that our people have extensive and up-to-date knowledge, so they can meet the highest professional standards. We develop our business-specific training structure accordingly, and continuously improve and update our training offerings.

Our colleagues take part in training courses that offer qualifications recognised worldwide, and they can also acquire a range of useful business skills. Training courses are offered in consulting, negotiating skills, assertiveness, presentation skills and many more areas.

For years, we have successfully organised our monthly Lunch & Learn event, in which our colleagues present their most successful projects, helping to promote best practices within the firm.

The Lunch & Learn event series is organised in house, usually with full attendance, and allows our colleagues to listen to inspiring stories over a sandwich lunch.

It is important for us to provide our colleagues, most of whom are trained in business and economics, with other learning experiences, to show auditors and tax advisors something outside their professional field, and that is why we have launched PwC Outlook.

We invite notable people to our event from all walks of life: innovators, thinkers, people who excel in their respective field, to give a talk or participate in a discussion.

Former guests have included economist Attila Chikán, prison psychologist Titanilla Fiáth, Olympic gold medallist water polo player Tibor Benedek, actor and theatre director Pál Mácsai, Franciscan friar Csaba Böjte, and Dávid Marsalkó, leader of the popular Hungarian hip-hop band Halott Pénz.

For more information, see our PwC Outlook page.



We have published our eighth annual Sustainability Report this year. This is a non-financial summary aimed at showing our stakeholders how we operate as a responsible business in the Hungarian market, and how we help our clients make better decisions. Of course, there is still room for improvement in various areas, which we also talk about in our report.

Győr and its region plays a crucial role in the development of Hungary’s economy and makes an essential contribution to the country’s prosperity through its business-friendly policies and by leveraging the advantages of its geographical location.

In our Győr office, which opened in 2011, our colleagues serve multinational clients based in Győr and its environs. Our people in Győr work in a more family-like setting, while they are also an integral part of our firm, which has its headquarters in Budapest, with almost one thousand employees. Our Győr office enables us to be closer to our clients operating in that region, to better understand what matters to them, and to create the value they’re looking for.

At PwC we pay particular attention to the role of women in the labour market, and we aim to ensure that women working at our firm do not have to choose between a career and a family. We have many young mothers who have returned to work after giving birth, as well as mothers employed part-time.

In 2019, we launched our Everyday Heroes event, which aims to help young mothers keep in touch with PwC and their colleagues. The event provides an excellent opportunity to learn more about young mothers’ work-related plans and the dilemmas they face.

We have also formed our Diversity & Inclusion team to create a more inclusive and diverse work environment, so that all our colleagues feel good about working here.

Talented recent graduates are a large part of our recruitment pool. To draw them in at an early stage, we started our internship programme, which aims to give graduates insight into the daily work of PwC Hungary, during which they can work with our experts and get familiar with many clients, business processes and real-world problems.

 

Our internship programme also involves training these young talents. Last year, nearly 70% of the participants were able to continue their career at PwC.

As service providers, we impact our environment with our operations, rather than with tangible products. We take the necessary steps to achieve our sustainable development goals in as many areas as possible.

We are trying to be environmentally friendly in transport as well: we support the fight against air pollution and the reduction of urban noise by using electric vehicles for business in the city. Our colleagues use two Nissan Leafs that are among the first mass-produced all-electric cars in the world. We charge these vehicles with public fast chargers in the office building’s garage.

To promote healthier and more environmentally friendly means of travel, we support community bicycling initiatives. At PwC Hungary, fringe benefits include contributing towards MOL Bubi public bike hire passes.

Sports should be part of a balanced lifestyle. To that end, we offer sporting opportunities for our employees, including sports club memberships, and participation in team sports organised in-house (soccer, volleyball, rowing). In addition to contributing to a healthy lifestyle, playing sports together is also excellent for community building. We also support individual sports: our colleagues can purchase discounted passes for gyms and other sporting facilities.

Every year we organise a sports day, at which our employees can take part in various sports competitions.

As part of our community engagement, we dedicate one day each year to volunteering. Apart from physical work, we also provide free training and advice for non-profit organisations. We have volunteered, among other venues, at the Institute for the Blind, the Crisis Intervention Unit of the Péterffy Sándor utca Hospital, the Hungarian Red Cross, the Children’s Clinic in Tűzoltó utca, and at the Children’s Home in Hűvösvölgy.

Meanwhile, at our offices we offer a full day of training programmes to representatives of civil society organisations on issues relevant to their work.

#pwctegyunkerte: With this hashtag, you can follow up on where we have been and what we have done in our most recent volunteer day. 

We launched “It’s about others,” our call for proposals for CR projects for university and college students, in 2011. Students can submit mini projects on issues of health, society, environmental protection, and education. The best teams are granted PwC Hungary’s professional and financial support to implement their projects.

“PénzSztár”, a national finance and economics trivia competition for high-school students, has been supported by PwC Hungary from the start. The aim of the competition is to evaluate the skills of the participating students, improve their financial literacy, and to guide them toward a successful career in finance or business. In addition to sponsorship, PwC also provides technical support for the competition.

For more information on our projects, visit our Corporate Responsibility website.

Innovation requires investment of time and energy. To facilitate that investment, we have created the Zoom Away Day, which is a day when our colleagues can focus on innovating instead of everyday business tasks. Our colleagues can use this dedicated day in smaller groups to rethink our business processes and come up with suggestions on where to improve.

Each year we organise an Innovation Day, where, alongside various workshops and trainings, our teams can demonstrate the innovative technologies and services they use.

We have a flexible work policy that allows employees to work remotely (i.e. home office) or adjust the hours of being in the office (they can start the day later or leave earlier; the total of working hours doesn’t change). 

PwC employees can have an extra day off each year called Recharge Your Batteries Day, which is in addition to their annual vacation allowance.

PwC Hungary moved into the Eiffel Palace in Budapest in March 2014. The Eiffel Palace is the first office development project in Central and Eastern Europe to meet the strict requirements of both the BREEAM and LEED environmental standards with excellent results. Our office building includes the following advanced features:

  • automatic lighting control using presence and motion detectors;
  • chargers for electric and hybrid cars (PwC Hungary has two electric company cars);
  • award-winning plant wall in the lobby, watered with rainwater;
  • re-use of rainwater for flushing toilets;
  • environmentally responsible waste management;
  • bike storage and changing rooms with shower on the garage levels;
  • solar panels.

In addition to our office building, we also consider quality to be important in the tools we use for our work: all employees are issued with iPhones and Lenovo Yoga ThinkPad notebooks.

At PwC, we aim to make life more pleasant and easier for our people.

We offer free, unlimited coffee to keep you going during the week, and on Friday evenings you can start off the weekend with a complimentary spritzer at the bistro downstairs. We take care of our people’s health with various free or discounted specialist medical examinations, general medical consultation, and weekly fruit days. Many discounted services come regularly to our office, such as massage, shoemaker, tailor, dry cleaning, and more recently we have started to offer Pilates sessions, also in-house.

Each year we organize a firmwide Health Day, where PwC staff can participate in health screenings and CPR courses and listen to interesting presentations.

There is no better way to create a relaxed office atmosphere than spending memorable moments together outside of working hours.

We have several options for our employees to spend some time with each other outside the office. On Friday evenings they can relax in the bistro downstairs and enjoy a spritzer or two – free of charge! In addition to self-organised parties, dinners, movie nights and excursions, our employees can also regularly participate in corporate team building events, with their team or on a business line level. We also have “all staff” parties: at Christmas, at the end of the Carnival season, or at the close or start of the financial year – there is always some occasion to celebrate!

PwC also offers its employees secondment opportunities to improve their knowledge and expand their professional network, get to know other cultures, and practice foreign languages.

The following mobility programmes are available:

  • Developmental secondment: this programme of at least two years develops the skills of the selected employee, from which both the employee and the employee’s home company will benefit.
  • Strategic secondment: this programme of at least two years results from a certain project, product, service or regional requirement.
  • International transfer: fulfils important resource, operational and project-based requirements in the recipient office, while it also provides an opportunity for professional development and reaching individual goals.
  • Short-term secondment: this programme of 1-12 months aims to deliver knowledge, develop the employee’s skills, and strengthen the PwC network.

We are proud of our company’s history, values and successes, which have been recognised by numerous awards in both Hungary and worldwide.

By dressing for the summer weather, we aim to call attention to climate change and the steps we can take in response.

Summer Fridays are Bermuda Shorts Days at PwC Hungary, which means that our colleagues may dress more casually, as appropriate for the weather. What does this mean in practice? There is no strict dress code for summer Fridays; our colleagues are free to dress as their day requires. In addition, on the last working day of the week, a uniform temperature of 25°C is set in our office, which reduces our environmental footprint. We want to use this initiative to start a movement and encourage other companies to take similar steps.

    • Tell me about a case when you had to solve a difficult problem.
    • What is your dream job?

  • Questions can also be aimed at finding out about factual details.
