Watch Ian Powell, PwC's Chairman & Senior Partner explain who we are:
Our culture is all about our people. The development of our people is key and though we are all driven by different aspirations, we share the same commitment to quality. The work we do is carried out to standards beyond best practice in an exciting environment where success thrives. The expert guidance, strategy and advice we offer our clients is all down to the people who work here.
Joining a large firm like PwC, means that you are likely to join with a number of other graduates. So, not only do you build very strong networks and make lasting friendships, but you are one part of a wider group going through the same experiences. Teamwork is very important in every piece of work we do, because we draw on everyone's knowledge and skills to ensure that all the work we deliver is of the highest quality. This means you'll work with some truly inspiring people, learn from them and, in turn, share your own insights- all contributing to the growth and success of your career and the firm as a whole.
Our people are ambitious and want to develop their careers and move forward. This means that we're always looking for new challenges, want to be the leader in our chosen markets, and are ready to put in the extra effort to succeed. We always approach work professionally and deliver the highest possible quality of service to our clients
Any client-driven organisation demands flexibility from its people. Sometimes you could be doing a lot of travelling to visit clients or spending longer than anticipated on a project to get things done. We offer a work-life balance Toolkit from which you can choose support if you need it. The support on offer includes such things as career breaks, emergency childcare and survival workshops. We understand that achieving a healthy balance between building a successful career and enjoying life away from work is a high priority for all our people.
We go out of our way to give them the respect and recognition they deserve - which means offering stimulating work, investing in continuous professional development, ongoing coaching and constructive feedback, and by maintaining fair, transparent promotion processes.
Through our PwC in the Community programme we have strategic relationships with many community organisations, charities and schools within the communities where we operate. We encourage and support our people to participate in the programme and give their talents, expertise and time to help improve chances for long term employability, education achievement and the environment.

We believe that having a diverse group of people working together enhances our performance as a business. The collective skills, knowledge and background of our people are the strength behind our success.
PwC's diversity strategy recognises people's differences in terms of gender and ethnicity, social and educational background and individual personalities. We are committed to ensuring all our existing and potential staff, clients and suppliers are treated with respect irrespective of their background, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, age, race (including colour, nationality and ethnic origin), religion, beliefs or disability.
We also have strong People Networks within the firm, including GALE for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender partners and staff, PwC Women, The Ethnic Forum, Parents and Faith Networks.
