Our purpose is to build trust in society and solve important problems. Helping clients and communities address the biggest challenges they face has never been more important. Our global strategy, called The New Equation, brings our purpose to life by bringing our people together to solve problems, often in unexpected ways to reflect the unique challenges of our times. We employ over 22,000 people across the UK, and attracting and retaining the best people is critical - as is empowering you with the best technology to power innovation. We'll support you to create a career that works for you, as part of a team and an environment where you can be the best you can be. Which is why we have ‘The Deal’ - our firmwide Employee Value Proposition. It clearly articulates what a career with PwC really looks and feels like and sets out what you can expect from your experience at the firm. 

Investing in our people is central to our strategy and in some areas, this could mean working towards a professional qualification. In return we ask that you’ll be eager to learn, with business awareness, intellectual and cultural curiosity and the ability to build strong relationships. You’ll be encouraged to work together, share knowledge and insights that foster innovation, drive impact and deliver quality to your clients. 

Joining PwC is your opportunity to learn with purpose, lead with heart and make a positive impact on the world. You can expect to be part of a stimulating environment working on challenging projects in a culture that embraces the different perspectives our people bring. With opportunities to start shaping your career from the moment you start university, we encourage you to look further.  

Bringing human-led, tech-powered innovations from concept to reality.

Be a part of The New Equation.

Traditionally, there’s only been one route when school comes to an end. University. Degree. Career. But things have changed, and there are now many professional opportunities available to you straight out of school. You don’t need a degree to launch a successful career in the business world. Many of our senior leaders joined us without a university degree and have accelerated their career at PwC and beyond. Things are changing and we’re giving you more opportunities than ever before to progress your career in accounting and technology – whether you want to jump straight into the working world, go to university, or both.

All of our full-time School and College Leaver programmes are designed to help you develop your business skills through real client work, while also completing formal training and studying towards qualifications to give you a head start in your career. PwC will provide you with support all the way. You’ll earn a competitive salary, benefit from our excellent support networks and have the opportunity to continually progress your career. Just like our graduate joiners, you’ll work on varied and challenging client and internal projects, which make a real difference to the world of business.

You’ll be coached by our people, who are experts in their field, and at the same time, thanks to our study support, you won’t need to worry about paying for course and exam fees, textbooks or revision materials. Alternatively, if you’re looking to gain work experience as well as a university degree, then why not apply to one of our leading Flying Start degree programmes in Accounting or Technology. Find out more about these degrees.

We're really excited to bring you the latest instalment of PwC's Virtual Classroom - a virtual programme open to students between Years 10 and 13. The programme combines both live and pre-recorded content.

At PwC, we know that when people from diverse backgrounds and with different points of view work together, we create the most value – for our clients, our people and the communities we work within. To solve important problems we need to be inclusive of our diverse talent and encourage our people to use their creativity, authenticity and human differences to be the champions of change.  

This month our Virtual Classroom sessions will focus on racial equality, social mobility and gender equality. You’ll also have the chance to engage with a range of PwC ambassadors through the interactive live sessions, whilst having the flexibility to watch and listen to the recorded sessions at a time best suited to you each week. We recognise that you’ll continue to have school or college commitments during the four-week period so we’ve made the virtual programme as flexible as possible.
