All our people need to demonstrate the skills and behaviours that support us in delivering our business strategy. This is important to the work we do for our business and our clients. These skills and behaviours make up our global leadership framework, "The PwC Professional".

The framework gives us a single set of expectations across our lines, geographies and career paths, and provides transparency on the skills we need as individuals to be successful in our careers, now and in the future.

There are five PwC Professional attributes to the framework - Whole Leadership, Business Acumen, Technical Capability, Global Acumen and Relationships. The PwC Professional is embedded in everything we do and will accelerate the development of your career.
