Our support for working parents

Working parents bring huge value to our firm and we want to ensure that they are supported at every stage and feel confident balancing their work and home lives.

No matter your role, grade or location, the support we provide to working parents is available to all PwC employees from day 1. 


Maternity and Adoption

We offer 22 weeks full pay (known as PwC “payroll cash”), inclusive of statutory maternity/adoption pay to all eligible employees, subject to taking a minimum of 4 weeks leave.


We offer 4 weeks leave at full pay (called PwC “payroll cash”) to eligible employees, inclusive of statutory paternity pay. 

Shared Parental Leave

We offer eligible parents up to 20 weeks full pay (known as PwC “payroll cash”), inclusive of statutory shared parental pay, so that when combined with maternity/paternity/adoption leave, all new parents can access up to 22 weeks paid leave. 

The number of weeks shared parental leave an employee can access will depend on how they are sharing leave with their partner/spouse, as per the statutory rules. However, entitlement to shared parental pay at PwC (PwC full payroll cash) is unaffected by the level of pay an employee’s partner may receive from their employer. Employees may also be entitled to statutory pay for additional weeks leave depending on how leave and pay are shared, as per the statutory rules.

In order to qualify for full pay, employees must take a minimum 4 week continuous block. It will be possible to take leave at any point up to the baby’s first birthday, or the anniversary of their placement in an adoption. 

In summary, as outlined above,all eligible parents can access up to a maximum of 22 weeks full pay based on a combination of maternity/adoption/paternity/shared parental leave

Parental Leave

We also offer parental leave, which is unpaid and allows you to take up to 18 weeks leave per child. We have waived the normal statutory rules which require one year’s service.

Miscarriage and baby loss

We offer up to 10 days leave to anyone who experiences a miscarriage before the end of week 24 of their pregnancy (before any statutory entitlement to leave applies). Partners are also entitled to up to 10 days leave in these circumstances.

Fertility leave

We offer up to 8 days paid fertility leave to any employee undergoing fertility treatment and up to 2 days paid leave for anyone whose Partner is undergoing fertility treatment to enable them to provide support.
