Flexible Talent Network

We support a culture that encourages greater flexibility in the workplace.

Everyone’s lives are different. Maybe you have a start-up business that only takes up some of your time, or perhaps you volunteer and want to get paid work around volunteering? Or you could be a parent or carer taking time-out to support your family? Or are you semi-retired but still want to supplement your income? Maybe you’ve taken a career break and looking to get back into work?

There are all sorts of reasons why a traditional working pattern may not be quite right for you and why working more flexibly with us could be just what you were looking for.

Our Flexible Talent Network (FTN) is one way we can support flexible working and provide mutual benefits – for you and for PwC.

One way of doing this is to provide you with a way you can work to a timetable that suits you. Our Flexible Talent Network programmes provide a great way for you to work for part of the year, and use the rest of the year for other things that matter to you.

What is the Flexible Talent Network (FTN)?

Put simply, the FTN is a network of individuals who have registered their interest in working for PwC outside of the traditional monday to friday 9-5. At PwC we offer our employees flexibility every day, and your requirements for flexible working will be considered if you apply to any role on our careers site.

The FTN is just a bit different in that we’re asking you to tell us about your skills and experience and your preferred working patterns. Using that information we’ll attempt to match you to opportunities that exist within the Firm. We’ll get in touch once we’ve found something you might be interested in.

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.

I’m interested in working on a temporary basis or as a contractor, is the FTN for me?

The flexible talent 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 then you can register your skills and experience here for our contract opportunities

What are the general guidelines working hours and the period of employment for the FTN?

You’ll work with us on a contract length that suits you and our clients. Our standard, full-time working hours are 37.5 hours per week. Let us know about a flexible pattern that most suits you and we’ll try and match it with a role in our business. It’s worth noting however that the opportunities within the Firm are limited if you’re looking to regularly work less than three days a week.

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 and 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 lots of different reasons for wanting flexibility in how they work and we’ll try and find an opportunity for you that fits. You might only want to work for half of the year because of childcare commitments, or because you like to hit the open road for the Summer. Whatever it is, if you tell us 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 our 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 offer stage.

Can I take holiday?

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?

You’ll receive an introduction to PwC focussed on our culture and values in your first week with us. Additional technical training will be based 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 to 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.

I’ve registered for flexible working at PwC, why haven’t I heard from anyone yet?

If you’ve registered your details and not heard back from us please don’t be concerned because we’re working to find suitable opportunities for you within the Firm. If we need to we’ll give you a call to gather some further information from you. Otherwise we’ll only get in touch with you when we’ve identified a role we think you might be interested in.
