Step 1: complete the application form
Once you've decided where you'd like to work within PwC and which route you'd like to follow, fill in our online application form. Make sure you research your answer to the question asked and ensure you answer each part! After completing this form you’ll be invited to take some online ability tests.
Step 2: take some online tests
You’ll be asked to complete numerical and verbal reasoning tests online. You'll give the tests again at the assessment day - this time on paper and supervised - so doing them online is good preparation. If successful you will be invited to a first interview.
Step 3: first interview
This stage involves a one-to-one interview, which provides you with the opportunity to display the qualities that paper can't do justice to. We're looking for you to provide us with evidence of the skills we are seeking as well as reassuring us that you've thought carefully about your career choice. You need to be able to demonstrate that you have a clear interest in the business world and PwC.
Step 4: attend an assessment centre and final interview
The assessment centre at PwC will consist of tests that measure your numerical and verbal reasoning skills; a written communication exercise; a second interview - normally with a partner or director from the business area you want to join and a group exercise.
This may sound a lot, but don't worry - the centre is designed to be as interesting and enjoyable as possible, giving you the chance to demonstrate your best qualities and find out as much about life at PwC as possible.
Step 5: receive an offer
You shouldn't have to wait too long. We'll let you know whether we'd like to make you an offer as soon after the assessment centre as possible.
Step 6: pass our checks
Once you accept an offer, our Pre Employment Screening Team will verify the academic and employment history you outlined on your application. This makes it absolutely essential that you complete your application form accurately and truthfully, including all module marks, dates and grades achieved. All of the information you provide will be checked rigorously (although active checks won't be made against social networking sites). Also, if you are joining a business area with Government and public sector clients, further checks will be carried out in line with the Government’s Baseline Personnel Security Standard (BPSS), including a criminal record check and proof of residence.
