Talent academy

Spend two days in the company of like-minded peers, learning from top business professionals and recruiters.

Our Spring Talent Academy is a two-day residential course designed to develop your overall business awareness, as well as giving you an opportunity to get a taste of what it's like to work at PwC in our Assurance and Tax teams .

Our Academy will run at a regional venue, in line with our vison to double our regional footprint in the next 5 years. Do well and it could lead to a job offer to join our summer internship or undergraduate work placement programme the following year in one of our regional offices.


In Assurance, we get right to the heart of business. With a continued demand for better corporate governance, accountability and transparency, we work with organisations to identify and manage their risks to best position them for the future.

Assurance is so much more than numbers. From assessing the sustainability of a supply chain, to the carbon footprint of a business, to compliance with their own internal governance policies, we help our clients to better understand their organisations’ culture and performance to help to achieve their true potential.

Our role impacts everyone’s lives and it’s work that really matters. In this constantly evolving environment, Assurance offers you a diverse career working with a wide range of businesses and industries. This variety provides the opportunity to develop a broad range of effective business skills and enables our people to excel across the breadth of work Assurance offers.

There’s never been a more exciting time to join our profession.


The tax landscape is constantly changing. Your knowledge will help high-profile organisations, entrepreneurs and family businesses understand complex rules and make informed decisions with significant impacts. You’ll also help governments ensure the efficient operation of tax systems and use your insight to solve long-term problems. 

Over 3,000 tax experts work in some 20 key areas and you’ll be part of a business that’s proactively engaging in the tax policy debate and focused on leading views and new ideas. Our people need to be flexible and ready to build strong relationships, networks and leadership skills. Our expertise covers every conceivable area of taxation.
