Programme

These eleven-month placements are for students who need to complete a placement as part of their degree. You could sit a selection of professional accounting exams and leave with a graduate job offer to fast track into a second year role upon graduation. You’ll work alongside graduate trainees and experienced professionals on live and interesting client projects. So you’ll get a good insight into working life at PwC.

What you'll do

You’ll be providing market leading audit services to an unprecedented range of clients including one of the largest shares of FTSE 100 companies of any UK audit firm. Our clients range from leading multinational companies to start-ups, from family businesses and governments, to charities and private individuals. Within financial services our clients cover industries within banking and capital markets, private equity, insurance, and consumer finance. Our audit helps organisations navigate regulatory complexity while strengthening trust and transparency in their business.

You’ll also study for your professional chartered accounting qualification. You’ll have a lot of support from your team, career coach and buddy to help you achieve this. It’s the variety and opportunity we offer that allows you to develop a broad range of effective business skills and enables our people to excel across the breadth of work Audit offers, both on the training schemes and further on in your career.

Working alongside specialists, you’ll work on client projects to give you the best insight into what we’re about. You’ll have the opportunity to build networks with your colleagues and peer group - factors which will make a real difference when you return for your last year at university. You’ll also have the opportunity to study towards the Chartered Accountant (ACA or CA) qualification while on placement.

What you'll need

You’ll need to be on course for a 2.1 degree or above in any subject. We determine whether you're on course for a 2.1 based on the grades you achieved in your last completed year of academic study.

You'll need to be a second year undergraduate university student on a four-year degree expecting to do a work placement in your third year .
