Job Description

A position on our School and College leaver programme is one of the best ways to kickstart your career with PwC. You’ll learn and develop the specialist skills our clients look for and value most, whilst also studying towards a professional qualification, with support from us all the way. The work is varied, and involves working as a team to understand the financial statements and the financial position of your clients, who may vary from multinational banks and football clubs through to public sector organisations and start-ups. Your work will include investigating and analysing operational and financial risk, processes, systems and controls, and then offering your client recommendations for improvement. Good communication, an analytical mindset, strong relationship building skills and a strong eye for detail are really important in our people-focused business.

Tax

The tax landscape is constantly changing. Your knowledge will help high-profile organisations, entrepreneurs and family businesses understand complex rules and make informed decisions with significant impacts. You’ll also help governments ensure the efficient operation of tax systems and use your insight to solve long-term problems.   

By joining Tax you’ll also be involved with our innovative One Tax Rotation programme. This gives you the opportunity to work outside your core tax competency for up to six months, learn from different clients and develop your transferable skills.
