We support a culture of greater flexibility in the workplace
Whether you’ve taken a career break, had time out to support family, are semi-retired, or looking to balance your career with another passion, we can offer the flexibility you might need to continue to progress your ambitions.
Our Flexible Talent Network (FTN) is one way that we support flexible working and provide mutual benefits – for you and for PwC.
Depending on the role you apply for, we can offer flexibility tailored 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’re interested in a specific opportunity please apply to the role directly.
Unfortunately we're unable to offer visa sponsorship for these roles. To be eligible you will need to have your own right to live and work in the UK for the duration of your employment.
A traditional working pattern may not be quite right for you, and working more flexibly with us could be just what you’re looking for.
Our Flexible Talent Network is a network of individuals who have registered their interest to work for PwC in a pattern that’s outside of the traditional working week. We offer a variety of roles which may suit the type of commitment you’re looking for.
In addition to registering to become part of the FTN pool, you can apply to any of our live flexible working roles that suit your skills and experience. Click here to review live roles and apply.
As well as offering specific flexible roles, we offer all our employees the opportunity to work flexibly each day, which we call ‘Everyday Flexibility’. We want our employees to see work as an activity, not a place, and feel empowered to choose the working space that best suits the type of work being undertaken, or the expectations of our clients or your personal commitments.
We'll support your integration into the firm from day one to ensure you're set up for success.
You'll have the support of your career coach, onboarding buddy and team to support you throughout your journey at PwC, enabling you to have a fulfilling and rewarding career with us.
For those who have taken a career break, we'll provide a tailored training programme to give you the opportunity to upskill before working on clients. You’ll also benefit from our pastoral programme that’s been specifically designed for flexible workers to support your integration into the firm.
Reduced days / hours
This is a part-time contract allowing you to be a permanent employee whilst not having to commit to working full time hours.
With an annualised days contract you would be on a permanent contract whilst working a certain number of days over the whole year. The expectation of when these days will be worked is flexible.
Our fixed-term contracts last for a specific amount of time, set and agreed in advance. Fixed-term employees enjoy all of the same rights and benefits as with any other permanent contract, although factors such as holiday entitlement and employee benefits will depend on contract length. Depending on the role, and an individual’s performance, fixed-term contracts can sometimes lead to longer term positions.
If you are looking to be part of our extended workforce on a non-permanent basis then look at our contract opportunities here.
Who can apply to our Flexible Talent Network?
We’re looking for people seeking a flexible working pattern who we can trust, and who will work with our clients and teams. We want people who share our values, culture and behaviours, so that our work reflects our purpose and we can successfully deliver our strategy.
What roles can I apply for that allow me to work flexibly?
We work with the business to identify live opportunities that will require a range of skills and expertise that can be suitable for people who want or need to work in a more flexible way. Click here to view the live roles that you can apply for now.
What would PwC need from you?
Let us know about a flexible pattern that most suits you and we’ll try and match it with a role in our business. As part of our FTN we would need you to keep in touch with your availability and any relevant new skills and experience that you may have acquired, along with your commitment and loyalty.
What’s in it for us?
It provides us with qualified, talented professionals who we can deploy on a recurring basis, and according to our business needs. It means that we have a wider breadth of people we trust who can work with our clients and teams, and allow for seamless client service and continuity.
What if I can't see a job that fits my skills or experience?
If there are no live roles that fit your criteria, then you are still able to sign up to be included in our Flexible Talent Network pool. Click here to register with your skills and experience as well as your preferred working pattern. This will enable you to receive notifications about any new flexible roles.
Who can register for the FTN?
Anyone. If you’re interested in working flexibly at PwC, just register through the FTN and we’ll do the rest.
What is the recruitment process through FTN?
All our people need to demonstrate the skills and behaviours that support us in delivering our strategy. This is important to the work we do for our business, and our clients. These skills and behaviours make up our global leadership framework, ‘The PwC Professional’. After you’ve applied to a vacancy, you’ll be prompted to answer some qualifying screening questions.
If successful, you’ll be invited for an interview. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet and talk to people from the business.
I’m interested in working on a temporary basis or as a contractor, is the FTN for me?
The FTN is for individuals who’d like to work with us on a permanent or fixed-term contract (FTC) basis. If you’d prefer to work with PwC on a more informal basis, you can register your skills and experience here for our contract opportunities.
How long is my FTN contract?
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.
I like to spend the summer travelling, can I still work at PwC?
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 the offer stage.
Can I take annual leave?
As an employee on a permanent or fixed-term contract basis, you’ll accrue holiday allowance in the same way as any other employee of the firm.
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.
