Everyday Flexibility

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.


What’s in it for you?

We'll support your integration into the firm from day one to ensure you're set up to bring your best.

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.

Joining through the Flexible Careers Network means you will have the opportunity to connect and build relationships with other flexible workers across the firm.

Types of roles available


Reduced days / hours

This is a part-time permanent contract allowing you to be a permanent employee whilst not having to commit to working full time hours. 

Annualised days

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. 

Fixed-term contracts 

We also offer flexibility on fixed term contracts. These 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 Careers 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 Flexible Careers Network 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?

What is the recruitment process through Flexible Careers Network?

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 Flexible Careers Network for me?

The Flexible Careers Network 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 flexible 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 terms and duration of your contract. Your recruitment contact will discuss this with you at the offer stage.

What benefit programs are Flexible Careers Network members eligible for?

Depending on the duration and terms 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 Flexible Careers Network 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.
