Everyone’s lives are different. Maybe you have a start-up business that only takes up some of your time, or perhaps you volunteer and want to get paid work around volunteering? Or you could be a parent or carer taking timeout to support your family? Or are you semi-retired but still want to supplement your income? Maybe you’ve taken a career break and looking to get back into work?
There are all sorts of reasons why a traditional working pattern may not be quite right for you and why working more flexibly with us could be just what you were looking for. Our Flexible Talent Network (FTN) is one way we can support flexible working and provide mutual benefits – for you and for PwC.
We’re looking for talented professionals we can deploy on a recurring basis across all areas of PwC, depending on our business needs. The way you work is up to you, whether that’s full-time, part-time, term-time or reduced hours.
Click here to register for opportunities within our Flexible Talent Network. We’ll email you when new opportunities open. If you are interested in a specific opportunity please apply directly, or through the general route.
We're unable to offer visa sponsorship for these roles. In order to be eligible you will need to have your own right to live and work in the UK for the duration of your employment.
We’ll provide full technical training on PwC’s systems.
We’ll stay in touch so that you’re abreast of any business changes we have.
The opportunity to work with our interesting and like-minded clients and the varied work that we’re commissioned to do for them.
The opportunity to work in an agile way, freeing up time outside your employment with PwC to pursue your other interests.
Qualified, talented professionals who we can deploy on a recurring basis, according to our business needs.
People we trust and have relationships with, to work with our clients and teams.
Seamless client service and continuity.
This varies depending on the programme you join but mostly we're looking for people seeking a flexible working pattern.
For you to keep in touch with your availability and any relevant new skills and experience that you may have acquired.
Your commitment and loyalty.

This can be flexible based on your needs; we’re happy to discuss your ideal flexible working pattern and contract length to try and match you into a role.

Yes. We recognise that people have different reasons for wanting flexibility in how they work and we’ll try and find an opportunity that suits you. You might only want to work for half of the year because of childcare commitments, or because you like to travel during the summer. Whatever it is, please let us know and we’ll try and make it work.
How will I be compensated?
You’ll be paid monthly and at a competitive market rate in the same way as any employee that works at PwC.
Will I be eligible for a bonus?
You may be eligible for our bonus plan depending on the duration of your contract. Your recruitment contact will discuss this with you at offer stage.
What benefit programs are FTN members eligible for?
Depending on the duration of your employment with us, you’ll be eligible for all or some of the great range of benefits our employees enjoy. Your recruiter will talk you through these at offer stage.
Can I take holiday?

What type of training will I receive when I join PwC?
During your first week with us, you’ll receive an introduction to PwC’s culture and values. Additional technical training will depend on line of service, grade, role and responsibilities. You can be assured that you’ll receive all the training and support you need.
Am I allowed to have dual employment while i’m working as an FTN employee with the PwC?
As with traditional employees, in certain circumstances PwC employees may be able to have dual employment. If you wish to do this, please make it clear when discussing opportunities with your recruiter. You’ll need to agree in writing that you acknowledge you may not use PwC information or equipment, in such an arrangement. We’ll review all of the information we have and make a decision as to whether the circumstances allow us to accommodate dual employment.
