We welcome applications from all candidates but there are restrictions to some areas of our business and some points you should note below.

See all our opportunities


We welcome applications from all candidates and will look to provide sponsorship to those who require a visa to live and work in the UK, subject to meeting all the necessary Home Office requirements.

Student and work visas
If you hold a valid student or work visa we may be able to switch to a Tier 2 (General) visa sponsored by PwC from within the UK. PwC has a set number of Certificate of Sponsorship applications that can be made each year. If this limit is reached and other Home Office requirements can not be met, it may prevent us from being able to sponsor and therefore employ you.

Tourist and business visitor visas
If you currently hold a tourist or business visitor visa and are offered a permanent role you will need to return to your home country to make a visa application.

Tier 2 (General) visa requirements
There are minimum salary requirements that need to be met in order to be eligible for a Tier 2 (General) visa. Full details on visa restrictions can be found on the Home Office website and immigration rules are subject to change.

The above information is correct as of September 2020.


Working with a permit

Restricted Certificate of Sponsorship

On 19 July 2010, the UK Government introduced a monthly limit on the number of migrant workers coming into the UK from outside the EU on a Restricted Certificate of Sponsorship. PwC, along with all other employers, is subject to such a limit. This may prevent PwC from being able to sponsor your Certificate of Sponsorship if the national limit is reached.



Offer of employment

Any employment offer made by PwC is contingent upon you obtaining and maintaining the right to work and reside legally in the UK. You are required to notify us immediately if your immigration status changes after you have submitted your application.

Resident Labour Market Test (RLMT)

The RLMT requires us to demonstrate that there are no suitably qualified settled workers to fill the vacancy and we need to satisfy this to meet Home Office requirements. If we are unable to do this we will not be able to offer sponsorship.

Own right to work in the UK

We welcome applications from candidates already eligible to work in the UK or those that can apply for a visa granting permission to work in the UK (e.g. dependent visas, ancestry etc.) that do not require sponsorship from PwC. You will be asked to share proof of this prior to receiving any offer of employment.

In addition we would like to make you aware that if you are made an offer of employment with PwC you will need to remain on your current visa / permit. If for any reason your visa status changes, we will be unable to offer you sponsorship in the future. In addition, the firm would not fund any subsequent non sponsored visa applications - you will be solely responsible for paying and maintaining your own right to work in the UK. In some instances we may not be able to offer you a permanent contract.

If you're unsure of your right to work in the UK without sponsorship, visit the Home Office website for more information:
