Do you need a work permit?

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

We are now accepting applications for 2019 opportunities. 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.

We welcome applications from candidates who have their own right to work within the UK. For both temporary and permanent roles you will be asked to provide evidence of your right to work during the early stages of the application process and you must maintain and be able to demonstrate your right to work throughout the duration of your employment.

In limited circumstances, where we are able to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test (RLMT) and a visa application can be made from within the UK, we may be able to sponsor a Tier 2 (General) visa for you to obtain the right to work. The RLMT requires us to demonstrate that there are no suitably qualified settled workers to fill the vacancy. If you require a Tier 2 (General) visa and your application will not be exempt from the RLMT, you will complete the initial online testing stage when you apply and, if successful, your application will be held. If we are able to fill our vacancies with candidates not subject to the RLMT, we will not be able to pursue your application. If you are currently holding a Tier 4 (General) Student visa your application is likely to be exempt from the RLMT and will therefore be progressed alongside our standard recruitment process.

Please note that PwC is unable to sponsor any candidates for the following graduate roles as the Home Office's eligibility criteria will not be satisfied:

  • Northern Ireland - all business areas
  • Legal Company Secretarial - all regions
  • Deals (Business Recovery Services, Forensics, Valuations, Transaction Services) - Leeds, Manchester & Birmingham

Immigration rules are subject to change and the above information is correct as at July 2018.
