Women in Business
Find out what it takes to make it to the very top of PwC from the perspective of one of our female leaders. Gain insight into what we do day‑to‑day, by partnering with an associate who’s on our current training scheme and experience working life with us
Open to all, regardless of gender, this programme is to inspire and support students seeking an experience in professional services, and is part of our continued commitment to improve our female representation by showcasing some of our inspiring female leaders. The programme focuses on supporting you through our application process, developing skills and provides an insight into the opportunities available at PwC.
What you’ll do
During this three-day paid placement, you’ll work closely with a variety of people at all grades to learn what it's like to work at PwC, experiencing first hand the nature of the work that we do.
You’ll choose which office you'd like to come to and which area of the business you're interested in. You’ll spend time with lots of different people, from graduates to senior leaders, attending meetings and working with our clients and teams to get real exposure to our business. Our Women in Business programme is available nationally and the opportunities will be running over the Easter and summer holidays (restrictions for some areas).
You should also have done plenty of research into the area of PwC you'd like to join. We strongly advise you to apply for the business area and office that interests you the most as any subsequent offers will be made for this area only.
You’ll get to work closely with the best in industry, finance and government in the UK and abroad, bringing fresh insights and motivation to the problems they face. Our clients might want us to help them enter new markets, address the challenges created by organisational change, or draw up a sustainability strategy that aligns their commercial objectives with broader environmental and social concerns.
The available dates to take part in the programme can be found on the Women in Business home page.
