We’re committed to treating all our job applicants fairly and with respect, irrespective of their actual or assumed background, disability or any other protected characteristic. 

We want you to have every opportunity to thrive in our selection process. Do you need adjustments in relation to a disability, a learning difficulty such as dyslexia, a medical condition or other individual need?

We’re committed to removing disability-related barriers, and are happy to discuss adjustments to our processes with you. Advise us in good time, so that we can support you to perform at your best. You’ll have the opportunity to let us know what adjustments you need within your online application form, and you can find some details of our selection process on this site to help you know what to expect.

Some examples of things we’ve put in place previously include: extra time for online assessments, hard copy materials, office orientations, and use of laptops with assistive technology for in-person assessments.

We understand that sharing your needs with us can feel like a big step, but please rest assured that we only ask so that we can understand how you are impacted. Please share what you’re comfortable with to help us put the right support in place. Anything you tell us will be kept completely confidential.

If you have any questions about adjustments before or during your application, we welcome the opportunity to discuss this  with you and talk about any adjustments we can make to appropriately adapt our process for you fairly.

For any queries relating to the adjustments process at PwC please contact the student careers helpline (HC Direct): freephone 0808 100 1500, from outside the UK: +44 (0)1952 568470  or email hccsstudentrecruitment@uk.pwc.com in the first instance.

Workplace Support

We know that people can have different needs in recruitment and in the workplace, so when you accept an offer of employment with us we’ll ask you to confirm any adjustments you need for the workplace (including any professional qualifications you may be taking).

We’ll discuss your adjustments with you before joining as far as possible and we’ll always fully collaborate with you on any support to be put into place. 

We also have a central cross-team IT Workplace Adjustments group who can help get you the equipment you need to carry out your role successfully, such as ergonomic hardware or assistive software, and our on-site Tech Lounges offer demos of different products.

Some example of adjustments we’ve made for colleagues currently working at PwC are:

  • BSL interpreters
  • Priority desks in our flexible workspace environment
  • Providing a different type of phone or laptop
  • Ergonomic chairs
  • Adapted keyboards and mice
  • Speech-to-text and magnification software, such as Dragon, ZoomText and SuperNova
  • Adjusted responsibilities and workload

Inclusive communities

Our eleven people networks share the aim of providing a sense of community, inspiring and supporting diverse talent and raising awareness of diversity within our firm and creating a genuinely inclusive culture at PwC.

DAWN, our Disability, AWareness Network, is for everyone, whether you're affected personally, support a colleague or relative.

We want to use our position as a large employer to challenge the perception of those with disabilities. One way we are doing this is by collaborating with partners such as Auticon. You can find out more about our partnership with Auticon here.

We look forward to receiving your application.
