Adjustments

If you’re a person with a disability, or if you have a condition that you believe may affect your performance during our selection process, we’ll be happy to make reasonable adjustments to our processes for you. You’ll have the opportunity to let us know about any adjustments you may need as you complete your application. We’ll continue this conversation if you join us as an employee, and we’ll work with you to make sure you have the adjustments you need to succeed in your role.

Here are some examples of adjustments we have made, to give you an idea of what is possible:

  • Extra time for online assessments.
  • Providing alternative accessible formats.
  • Laptops with assistive technology for the assessment day.
  • Hard copy accessible materials e.g. large print.
  • Office orientation before an in-person assessment.

For any queries relating to the adjustments process at PwC please contact our helpline (HC Direct): freephone 0808 100 1500, from outside the UK: +44 (0)1952 568470 or email HCCS_ExperiencedRecruitment@hccs.pwc.co.uk

Workplace Support

We know that people can have different needs in recruitment and in the workplace, so when you accept an offer of employment with us we’ll ask you to confirm any adjustments you need for the workplace (including any professional qualifications you may be taking).

We’ll discuss your adjustments with you before joining as far as possible and we’ll always fully collaborate with you on any support to be put into place. 

We also have a central cross-team IT Workplace Adjustments group who can help get you the equipment you need to carry out your role successfully, such as ergonomic hardware or assistive software, and our on-site Tech Lounges offer demos of different products.

Some example of adjustments we’ve made for colleagues currently working at PwC are:

  • BSL interpreters
  • Priority desks in our flexible workspace environment
  • Providing a different type of phone or laptop
  • Ergonomic chairs
  • Adapted keyboards and mice
  • Speech-to-text and magnification software, such as Dragon, ZoomText and SuperNova
  • Adjusted responsibilities and workload

Inclusive communities

Our eleven people networks share the aim of providing a sense of community, inspiring and supporting diverse talent and raising awareness of diversity within our firm and creating a genuinely inclusive culture at PwC.

DAWN, our Disability, AWareness Network, is for everyone, whether you're affected personally, support a colleague or relative.

We want to use our position as a large employer to challenge perceptions on disability and neurodiversity. One way we are doing this is by collaborating with partners such as Auticon. You can find out more about our partnership with Auticon in our annual report.
