What will I do?
The 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 the ACCA professional examinations, 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.
What work will I do?
In Assurance, we get to the heart of business providing decision makers with information they can trust and give investors confidence. In this evolving environment, Assurance offers you a diverse career working with wide-ranging businesses and industries. This provides the opportunity to develop broad business skills.
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'll undertake the ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) professional accountancy examinations.
What will I gain?
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.
