Frequently asked questions

General

Do you hire international candidates?

Yes – as long as you have a valid work pass prior to your start date.

For experienced and graduate hires, the firm will apply for a work pass on your behalf.

For interns, you will need to apply for a work holiday pass via the Ministry of Manpower (MoM) website. Do note that we have fixed internship start dates so please ensure that you can commit to this start date (and the minimum internship period) before applying.

Note that the issuance of a valid work pass is subject to you meeting MoM’s eligibility criteria and their subsequent approval of your application.

Can I email my CV/resume directly to the Talent Acquisition Team?

To be considered for a role, you will need to apply via our online application portal (guidance can be found on the job opportunity pages).

Does PwC hire students with specialisations other than Accounting?

Absolutely! From Engineering, Mathematics and IT to many others – we recognise that in today’s fast changing and dynamic world, we need a diverse workforce with varying skillsets and backgrounds to deliver exceptional value to our clients.

For campus recruitment opportunities, can I still apply even if my grades are average?

Yes - grades are not our only criteria. We also look at leadership qualities, business acumen and strong interpersonal skills – see questions below on the attributes we look for.

What attributes is PwC looking for?

The upcoming challenges require us to develop inspirational, authentic and inclusive leaders that will make us all highly relevant in the marketplace. The PwC professional framework is about developing the way our people think and behave as they grown with the firm. This framework is applied in assessing all levels of the firm (including interns). Within the PwC Professional framework, there are five attributes:

Yes – however you will only be considered for one job opportunity at a time. In the event you are unsuccessful for your first preference, we may consider your application for your second preference.

For Experienced Hire positions, every position is recruited for separately, so you will need to apply for the various roles via the recruitment portal.

For Campus-related positions:

  • Create a Workday account and apply to your most preferred associate role that closely aligns with your skills, passions and interests.
  • PDF both your resume and degree audit before uploading it in Workday. The system will auto-populate the information from your resume.
  • You can indicate another role in the same application form. Please do not apply multiple time as we will only process one application per candidate.
    *Duplicate entries will slow down your application with us.

Keep a regular look out on our website for future opportunities. For Experienced Hires, you can create a profile in our recruitment portal and sign up for our job alerts.
