Teach First is an independent charity and movement for social change. The two year Leadership Development Programme offers outstanding graduates and experienced professionals the skills, experience and opportunities to become inspiring teachers and leaders in the classroom and beyond. Improved communication, leadership, motivation, planning and problem solving are all vital to succeed in a firm like ours. We recognise these attributes as being critical to our success as a firm and that's why we're proud to have been a Teach First platinum partner since 2009.
Before starting your career with PwC, why not spend a couple of years teaching in a school in challenging circumstances. Teach First's vision is that no child’s education success is limited by their socio-economic. Spending two years teaching in a school in challenging circumstances will prepare you for anything that a career at PwC can throw at you.

Teach First ambassadors and participants in their second year of teaching can apply to the Leadership vacancy with PwC.
Leadership candidates will skip the on-line tests and first interview stage, and will not be required to complete the written and group assessments at the assessment day stage.
This is an opportunity to develop leadership experience prior to joining PwC. You’ll spend two years after graduation working in a school in challenging circumstances on the Teach First scheme. At the same time you can apply for a full-time position with PwC and defer your start date for two years whilst you complete the Teach First programme.
You'll need to apply to both PwC and Teach First at the same time, as we both have different application and selection processes.
For this entry point you'll apply, for example, for Teach First to join in 2013, and PwC to join in 2015.
You'll need to be successful in the application process with both organisations. If you're successful with PwC and not with Teach First, we'd envisage you contacting the local recruiter to discuss the option of joining earlier. This will need to be managed on a case by case basis based on the vacancies we have available.
When applying for this vacancy please state your location and business area preference in the career choice section of the application form. Please note we can’t guarantee your first choice will be available and we’ll discuss this with you if it isn’t.
