Back to Business programme

Have you been out of the workplace for more than 2 years? Are you looking to work in, or return to Professional Services?

Back to Business is a 6 month paid senior internship programme, to encourage senior professional women to restart their career after an extended break.

We know that returning to work after a long break may not be easy, so we want to make this as successful and enjoyable for you as possible. The programme is designed to help you transition back into the work environment and give you an opportunity to upgrade your skills.

Our Back to Business programme will provide:

  • A week long induction
  • A dedicated Partner Sponsor
  • A member of your assigned team to shadow
  • The opportunity to work on real client projects
  • Touch points throughout the programme to see how you are getting on
  • Potential opportunities to become permanent at the end of the programme

Additional benefits of the programme:

  • Develop new relationships
  • Broaden your professional networks
  • Meet with other programme participants and people in your respective business area.

You’ll have the opportunity to make a real impact and contribute to our business with continued support throughout. At the end of the six months there may be an opportunity to become permanent depending on your performance and your desire to continue with us.

Our Back to Business programme helps to support our diversity and inclusion agenda of increasing the proportion of senior female talent within PwC.
