Summer Internships

Gain insight into a career with us

We know your summer break is important and we want to make sure you get the maximum value from your summer internship. We want to bring out the best in you, let you see the work we do and get a real experience of our culture and our people.

You will get an insight into a career with PwC, and see first-hand what life is like for our students during a summer internship that lasts for three weeks during your summer break.

You will spend your time as part of a team getting practical, on-the-job experience with the guidance of coaches from the business, and understand the importance we place on supporting and developing people in our business.
