Talent Academy

Spend two days in the company of like-minded peers, learning from top business professionals and recruiters.

You’ll get the kind of preparation for the world of work that’s available only to the most talented and ambitious students.

Our Talent Academy and Tech Academy is a great way to develop your business acumen - and it could lead to an offer to join our summer internship or undergraduate work placement programme the following year.


What is a Talent Academy?

You’ll spend time with PwC staff and Partners – who’ll share their experiences and career progression. Benefiting from a tailored development experience, you’ll select employability electives aligned to your area of interest.

Straight away, you'll realise how much you already know – for instance, about dealing with different people and situations – thanks to a job you’ve had, a team you’ve been part of or perhaps voluntary work you’ve done for a society or charity. More importantly, you'll be amazed at how quickly you can develop your commercial knowledge, gaining an insight into typical business scenarios you'd come across daily at PwC. You’ll also tackle a challenging team project, where you’ll work in groups to formulate an argument to a proposal. And at the end, you'll debate your group's findings with other teams – in a fun and highly interactive climax to the day. The course will be intensive – but you'll be under the watchful eye of experienced business professionals.

What is a Tech Academy?

Technology is at the heart of all transformational changes that organisations go through. It has a big part to play when we help our clients and often drives the change agenda. We combine our business and technical skills in response to our clients' rapidly changing business and technical needs. If you're passionate about technology, you'll get expert training and the opportunity to specialise in a sought after discipline.

You'll take part in this unique opportunity to spend time with our Technology team who'll reveal the innovative work we're doing to keep at the forefront of data, digital and cyber security for our clients at a global reach.

During this 4 day paid placement, you'll shadow members of our Technology team spanning across Technology Consulting, Data Analytics and Forensic Technology Solutions:

  • Attend meetings
  • Work with external clients and internal teams
  • Gain exposure to the type of work we do
