Business insight week

Are you thinking about your next steps once you leave school or college? Do you want to work with some of the most successful companies and high profile public sector organisations in the world?

Attend our exclusive business insight day where you'll benefit from employability skills coaching, find out more about the business insight week and sit the psychometric tests which are required for the business insight week. Spend an action-packed week in a PwC office of your choice during your summer holiday – meeting our people, experiencing the work we do and making new friends.

 

If you’re interested in business, then our paid work experience programme is for you. We welcome people from all cultures and backgrounds at PwC, as different perspectives and approaches are key to our success. So no matter your situation or what you study, we want to hear from you. This is your opportunity to find out what the world of business is all about and see whether it might be for you – particularly if you don’t already have a network in the profession. You don’t need any experience – just a desire to learn.

What is it?

We’ll welcome you with a day’s training to get you started. You’ll get to meet other people doing the placement during the same week, helping you make friends right from the start. You’ll then spend time in the office you’ve chosen, working alongside our people. By spending time with teams working on live projects and buddying up with a PwC school and college leaver or graduate trainee, you’ll get a unique insight into how the world of business works, putting you a step ahead of the competition when you start looking for a job.
