What's so special about working at PwC Mauritius?

Why should I choose PwC?

Choosing PwC as your first job is the ideal launching pad. From day one, you'll join a big family; you'll help solve important problems and build trust in society alongside established and influential business professionals.

We will be honest: we'll expect you to work smartly, be committed and flexible, and build working relationships of high value which are genuine and rooted in trust. In return, we'll provide the support and encouragement you need to succeed and meet your professional goals. We'll take care of you and your progress will be our priority.

You've got a lot to gain by choosing us, and we're explaining why by telling you about four things that are part of the Graduate Recruitment package: Work - Growth - Reward - Social.

Work

A real challenge: PwC works with some of the best known local and international brands. You can expect to be challenged and stretched by working for our prestigious clients and on complex projects. However, we can assure that working for the best brings rewarding professional experiences that can help shape your career.

Growing into an accomplished professional: Your development will be packed with variety and challenge. As you grow with us, you will get more responsibilities and you'll have the opportunity to manage a team.

Flexible work environment: PwC offers a truly flexible environment where individual goals are respected as much as professional goals, and contribution is measured by results, not by the number of hours you spend in the office. The average age at PwC Mauritius is 30 years old, and thus we understand that your life should not be on hold from Monday to Friday. You'll be encouraged to be in charge of your own working routines and find time to do other things that you enjoy outside of work.

Growth & Development

Structured training: Your development is our priority and in average we dispense around 100 hours of training to associates in their first year. This is a mixture of tutor-led training by industry experts as well as through our online platforms that contain over 5000 e-learns.

Professional qualifications: We'll enroll you to study towards a professional qualification. Good news is that we pay for your tuitions and exam fees as well as costs of subscription. But that's not all, you get around 6 - 8 days of study leave for each exam.

Constant feedback: You should never be in the dark as to how you are performing. Your reporting lines provide constant feedback and support for your development using our real-time Snapshot tool. 

Reward

Competitive salary and bonus: We have a transparent system of performance appraisal that ensures we reward you in away that reflects your contribution. While assessment is ongoing through the real-time Snapshots tool, salary increases/bonuses are distributed yearly around July-August.

Clear career progression and promotion: It's not all about money, and we know that as you jump into the world of work, you're also looking to make a place for yourself and be respected.

Social life at PwC

The PwC Centre: Our new office in Moka is at the cutting edge of modern, sustainable design, and equipped with the latest technologies. You’ll find open spaces, fun areas, quiet pods, stand-up desks and heaps of other options to help optimise your well-being at work.

Social scene: How you spend your free time is up to you, but our social scene is one of the best things about working here. We hope you're big on energy so that you can make the most of Team away days, social drinks and parties, CSR activities, the PwC Fun Day and the famous PwC End of Year Party.

Who we’re looking for

Technology, automation and artificial intelligence are disrupting how we work. In this rapidly changing world, technical capabilities are no longer enough. The skills that make us uniquely human will matter most.

Leadership, flexibility, relationships, ambition and insight. At PwC, we see and develop these traits in everyone. At their happiest, most engaged and most creative, our people are unstoppable. It's their ‘human difference’ that helps them thrive in life and at work.

Our PwC Professional Framework articulates the attributes we look for in a PwC professional in order to meet the expectations of our clients, colleagues and communities.
