An organisation is only as good as its people. That’s why PwC seeks out the best and brightest graduates each year. Your opportunity starts here.
Our graduate training programme, a path to becoming a PwC professional is paved with opportunities and real responsibilities, helping you take your career forward. We take a blended approach to your development, combining formal training through professional qualifications, coaching from others and practical on-the-job experience. You will gain a range of transferable business, personal and technical skills that help you grow.
Our people make us stand out. They are our biggest business asset. It’s a two-way deal; what our people put into PwC, they get back in kind. We recruit the very best and invest in them. We also want you to be sure we’re the right choice for you. The professional journey you can expect when you join us covers:
Not only do you study for an internationally respected business qualification, you also get plenty of variety and excellent development opportunities throughout your career. You'll quickly develop excellent communication, project management, business awareness and coaching skills.
We want to hear from the most talented all-round students. We would like to hear from those that have outstanding academic achievements, gaining at least a Grade B at Maths and English at GCSE, a minimum of 120 UCAS points (excluding General Studies) or a minimum of 32 International Baccalaureate points, and on track to securing a 2:1 in any degree discipline.
But, there’s more to our people than academic excellence.
During the recruitment process, we will be looking for people who demonstrate:
In Assurance, we get to the heart of business providing decision makers with information they can trust and give investors confidence.
As an Assurance Associate you’ll have hands-on work straightaway. It’s investigative work that often involves one-to-one meetings with financial controllers and finance directors, and you’ll need to be tenacious and resilient to do it well. And as finance is at the centre of every organisation, you'll learn constantly about how different businesses operate. You'll be looking through records and also help to put together reports on the controls and systems you have seen at our clients covering a wide range of industries and audit areas including customers, suppliers and bank statement reconciliations. If you’re an individual with intellectual agility, drive and resilience, you will most likely excel in our business.
The more experience you get, the more responsibility you’ll take on – from planning and carrying out your own audits as well as for coaching junior colleagues.
You will undertake the ICAEW ACA professional accountancy examinations.
Actuaries work with uncertainty, helping clients analyse how future events – anything from a corporate take-over to a major natural disaster – would affect them.
As an Actuarial Associate you’ll work with a wide variety of clients from a wide variety of industries. Industries in which actuaries traditionally play a role, like the life insurance, general insurance and pension industries to some non-traditional industries like the banking and healthcare sector, the public sector, the funds industry and legal profession.
You’ll learn how to use complex financial and statistical theories to weigh up the risks and estimate the odds of what might happen. Just as importantly, you’ll develop a flair for presenting your findings in a simple and easy to understand language.
You’ll undertake a professional qualification with the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries.
Here, some of our graduates talk about their experience since joining the firm and what it has meant to them.
"Studying for the ACA qualification is a challenging yet rewarding process. PwC provides excellent support throughout your training and everyone is very welcoming. Working in Assurance you are exposed to a range of work across the different industries the Isle of Man has to offer. The job is a constant learning curve which is balanced out with a variety of social events throughout the year. There is always an opportunity to get involved in different projects or challenges for charity. I have enjoyed my time at PwC so far."
"My time in PwC’s Actuarial Services practice has honestly flown by, and from my first day in the office it’s safe to say that the learning curve you experience is exponential. I’ve already witnessed a vast variety of client work, exposure you would struggle to get when working in UK branches of the business and a real positive to being located on the Isle of Man.
The exam and study support is exceptional. I have had constant support from all of my colleagues whenever I’ve needed it, and the study material has great relevance to our everyday work. All in all, PwC is a fantastic place to work."
