Audit and assurance

One of our firm’s main activities is audit and assurance. The benefit of an audit of financial statements is that it provides assurance to stakeholders – shareholders, CEOs, creditors, customers, suppliers, tax inspectors, and potential investors – that management has presented a “true and fair” view of a company’s financial performance and position. Digitisation is also making strides in the audit profession. At PwC, we strive to serve our clients using innovative, state-of-the-art tools and methodologies, while at the same time providing reliable services our clients can depend on in their day-to-day operations.

In addition to reviewing companies’ financial reports to assess their integrity, our assurance practice also helps clients with IT and enterprise risk management, internal auditing, IT security, business processes, and responsible corporate governance issues.

Our accounting advisory team is concerned with the conceptual design and practical implementation of legislation and optimisation opportunities for our clients.

PwC’s Academy offers high-level training courses for business professionals.



According to our colleagues…

„Since I started here, I’ve always had someone to turn to for help with whatever question, request or problem."

“Sports, especially soccer, have taught me to fight and work together for a common cause, and PwC is a place where I can make good use of these virtues. We are facing constant challenges in our work, but we never have to deal with them alone – we try to solve everything as a team. Since I started here, I’ve always had someone to turn to for help with whatever question, request or problem. This flexibility is important in our day-to-day work because every week we work with a different team or a different client in a constantly changing environment.

Besides being part of a dynamic team, I would like to mention the friendships I’ve made here. Each business line has at least one soccer fan who is a member of our team, and more than once I have saved hours of work by turning to a PwC team member for help on a more complex issue because I knew they were dealing with that topic on a daily basis. You can even make international contacts easily during a soccer cup.”

„Here you will be treated as an equal from day one, and will perform responsible and inspiring work."

“As a career starter, you will have a wide variety of tasks: one week you may be helping the financial audit team analyse accounting records, the following week you could participate in a statutory compliance project for the largest Hungarian firms, or assist more experienced colleagues in drafting a proposal.

All of this in a youthful, supportive environment – for PwC, it is especially true that you will gain from it as much as you invest. Here you will be treated as an equal from day one, and will perform responsible and inspiring work. You can focus on a specific area of expertise, such as SAP, IT security, internal audit, and so on, or you can develop your overall audit and project management skills.”

„...I started here at PwC after I moved back from the U.K., and based on my own experience... I see that I have the same tasks, professional challenges and locally competitive salary at PwC in Budapest, as my friends who have stayed in Western Europe...”

“I’m beginning my sixth year as a member of PwC’s audit team. Every year presents new and interesting challenges, professional opportunities and projects through which I can get to know myself and my environment from a new perspective. Audit gives me the opportunity to gain insight into different industries, thus getting a more comprehensive picture of current trends in the Hungarian and European economies. My current portfolio is mainly made up of players in the telecommunications industry, but in recent years I have also been able to learn more about the automotive sector, media, and the high-tech industry. I believe that PwC’s Budapest office can offer a great deal of challenges and opportunities to anyone who is open to them, whether they come from here or abroad. Personally, I started here at PwC after I moved back from the U.K., and based on my own experience and the experience of my university classmates who found a job there, I see that I have the same tasks, professional challenges and locally competitive salary at PwC in Budapest, as my friends who have stayed in Western Europe.”

„...In my view, by contrast, our accounting advisory team deals with the most exciting and interesting matters in our profession."

“For those who don’t know much about accounting, the image of a bookkeeper sitting behind a computer often comes to mind. In my view, by contrast, our accounting advisory team deals with the most exciting and interesting matters in our profession. There is variety, new topics every day, creativity and a great team: that’s what I think of when it comes to accounting and PwC. I recall a day from last year: in the morning, I spoke with a client about the IFRS consolidated financial statements of a Hungarian company group, and reviewed the revenue accounting of a Romanian company developing antivirus software; in the afternoon, I checked the accounting records of one of the largest global bitcoin mining companies; and in the evening, I had a discussion about the accounting of cross-border mergers with colleagues from the U.S.”

„In my 15 years with PwC, I have experienced various kinds of stories: adventure, comedy, drama, and more."

“When I passed the Assessment Centre, I was one of 20 selected out of a multitude of applicants. It was a good team, and I’m friends with many of them even to this day. In those days we only used the name PricewaterhouseCoopers. The associated tagline, which I think was quite funny, was “the biggest name in the industry.” I thought, on that basis, that there might even be witty people here. We may not have a movie made of our life, but we all live out some kind of story. In my 15 years with PwC, I have experienced various kinds of stories: adventure, comedy, drama, and more. Time has passed quickly, but a great deal has been achieved. It was incredible, full of interesting challenges and lessons. I’m very grateful to our firm, and look forward to the next 15 years!”

How to apply for an auditor position

Selection process for interns and junior auditors

As a first step, you will need to create a user account where you must enter some personal information and upload your CV. Your account will make it easy for you to follow the status of your application.

If you are selected based on your CV, the next step in your application process will be a telephone interview. During the interview, you will be asked 6 to 8 questions to which you will need to give short answers (2-3 minutes each).

After a successful telephone interview, you will have to complete an online English language assessment test and a reasoning test. It will take about one and a half hours to complete the two tests, and you have three days to do so. The online test is extremely important as it is an essential part of your application, and can positively influence your chances of getting hired.

Once you have successfully passed these stages, you will be invited to the assessment centre (AC).

The AC is part of our selection procedure and takes about half a day. It allows us to get a broad picture of you as you progress through various tasks, and will help us make our decision. At the AC, you will be given team tasks and individual situational tasks.

Make sure you avoid putting on a persona, and just be yourself. Our recruitment specialists can easily spot “insincere” behaviour.

If you have successfully completed this stage as well, depending on your performance at the AC, you will be invited for a professional interview with a senior auditor colleague. By the end of the day, we will let you know if you can join us here at PwC.ához.

Tips to help you prepare for the job interview

Be courteous.

  • Arrive on time.
  • Don’t get too chummy with the interviewer.
  • Don’t forget to say hello and goodbye.

Mind your appearance and behaviour.

  • Your handshake should be firm but not too strong.
  • Avoid excessive gesturing.
  • Keep eye contact with the interviewer.

Get prepared about PwC! You will find answers to the following questions from our corporate website:

  • What is the scope of our activity?
  • Who are our main competitors?
  • In what markets do we operate?
  • It is also worth reading articles and media reports.

    • Tell me about a case when you had to solve a difficult problem.
    • What is your dream job?
    • What do you think makes you a good fit for this position?
  • Questions can also be aimed at finding out about factual details.
  • Know what’s in your CV, be ready to talk about your studies, and your work-related tasks.
