1 week of induction and training 1.5 weeks of client work - working with a team to perform audit activities. I was involved in the planning stage. Throughout the internship we took part in a group dragons den project - perform research and make growth recommendations to a social enterprise. Judged at the end of the internship
The summer internship lasted for three weeks. There was a week consisting of induction and service line training (eg audit, tax, risk, etc.) and two weeks of client work. Main interactions were with your engagement team. No prior knowledge were required for the internship, they will teach you. The induction was led by student recruitment while the training was lead by PwC associates and above. Teams ranged from 3 people to 20+, depends on which engagement you're on.
After a week-long induction, with introductions to the firm and my specific line of service, I was assigned to a client project that I worked on for half of my internship. I also participated in a Dragons Den internship project, involving research and a presentation regarding a social enterprise.
Week 1/3: This week involved 2 days of firm-wide training where all interns were introduced to the wider aspects of working for PwC. The other 3 days were Line of Service training. Weeks 2-3/3: These next 2 weeks were spent on client work. We were each assigned to different client engagements and partook in the daily calls where tasks would be assigned. Throughout the 3 weeks we also had a group project.
The beginning of the internship involved completing a 3 day audit training session. During the remainder of the internship I worked in a team on a real client, and every morning I would have a meeting and I would be assigned tasks by the senior associate on my team. Upon completion of the tasks given I would review the work with someone on the team and receive valuable feedback.
For the first week it was mainly introduction sessions, getting to know the ropes of the business. From the second week onwards i had the opportunity to shadow numerous members of many different tax teams, being given new work everyday and being directly involved in many client calls.
To begin our internship we went through a set of training, about the firm and also our specific line of service. We then spent the rest of the internship on client work. We were assigned teams and had daily group calls where the manager would assign certain jobs and get an overview of everyone's progress. Throughout this internship we also had a group project to do with other interns.
