Consulting is all about helping our clients to achieve particular goals. They might want to work out what their strategy should be or how they could grow, enhance the skills of their people or find more efficient ways to do things.
As a Management Consultant, you’ll come up with answers to all sorts of business questions. Like what makes a brand so successful that customers will pay a premium and keep coming back? Is it marketing, product quality, pricing, customer service or a combination of all these things? You’ll help clients look at things in new ways, identify where they need to focus and make changes where they need to.
The fact that every client and their priorities are different makes the work really varied and a client project could last for anything from a few days to a few years depending on how much work there is to do. The internal teams who support our client work are vital too. Among many other things, they make sure our consultants are up to speed with the latest business developments and that we have the systems to support the complex work we do.
As part of an internal team, you’d see that our clients get the very best from PwC. You can expect to move around a lot and experience a range of different business areas.
Join us straight from school or college and you’ll spend your first two years working with a range of internal teams to build your knowledge and experience. After that, you can expect to get involved in client work. Carry out research, collect and analyse data to develop reports and recommendations.
Flexibility plus a love of variety and working with things that are unknown. You must also be good at working with other people, building strong relationships and helping to generate ideas or look at new things in a different way.
The exams must have been sat in the same academic year and we do not consider re-sits.
Please note that if you have a degree, you may find our graduate opportunities more appropriate. Having a degree does not lead to faster progression through the programme.
