…to become an international Deals expert

The Edge programme is created to support the best and brightest graduates at the start of their careers by boosting their development from their first days at our Deals practice. It comprises a three-year journey that officially begins with an International Deals Foundation event. Following that, you'll commence in your allocated Deals business area at your local PwC firm, where you will rotate between different competence groups, doing a variety of project work with a variety of local and international clients and teams.

At PwC we're inspired to help you grow into an international Deals expert and have designed Edge to give you a 'helicopter' view of our Deals business. To help you through this learning process, you will be supported by relevant training courses, as well as by a team of professionals offering mentoring and "buddy" support. In year 3, some of you will also have the opportunity to take part in an international exchange programme and work in another country. 

To ensure that you get the best technical training to complement what you learn on the job, we will support you in attaining a professional qualification, such as CFA.
