Spend an action-packed week in a PwC office of your choice during your summer holiday – meeting our people, experiencing the work we do and making new friends.

What is it?

If you’re interested in business, then our paid work experience programme is for you. 

You’ll see how we support household brands, governments, charities and global companies with everything from planning for the future, to how they can make best use of their technology and meet the challenges of a changing world of business. Plus, you’ll get advice and coaching from our recruitment team. If it goes well, you’ll have the opportunity to: secure a full-time job with us when you leave school or college; explore our Flying Start degree programme; or join our Talent Academy if you decide university is for you.

What you'll gain

  • Improve your employability skills
  • Make new friends and increase your network
  • Find out more about the business world
  • Get paid for the week
  • Build your confidence
  • Work on real projects

What you’ll do

We’ll welcome you with a day’s training to get you started. This will be held in a central location and you’ll get to meet other people doing the placement during the same week, helping you make friends right from the start. You’ll then spend time in the office you’ve chosen, working alongside our people. By spending time with teams working on live projects and buddying up with a PwC school and college leaver or graduate trainee, you’ll get a unique insight into how the world of business works, putting you a step ahead of the competition when you start looking for a job.
