All our people need to demonstrate the skills and behaviours that support us in delivering our business strategy.

This is important to the work we do for our business, and our clients. These skills and behaviours make up our global leadership framework, the PwC professional. The precise details of each stage will vary according to where you want to work, but the focus throughout will be on the qualities you need to do well. Having the right academic results is only part of it.

Important information to consider

3rd party providers of assessment support

We’re aware that there are providers selling guidance and assistance on how to complete our recruitment assessments. We have no relationship with and do not endorse any of those providers. Our PwC Careers page offers access to hints and tips on our process, opportunities to sign up to events to find out more and talk to our recruiters. We encourage applicants to use these channels available.

Candidate professional conduct

We take candidate professional conduct very seriously. This means we undertake periodic reviews of candidate applications to identify activity we believe undermines the integrity of our recruitment process. This includes, but is not limited to, comparing candidate video interview responses, assessing if transcripts are identical and proactively looking for duplicate accounts across our systems. Where we find evidence of undermining our recruitment processes, you will/may be disqualify(ied) from our recruitment process.

6 month re-apply rule

You’re restricted to one application at a time with student recruitment. In addition, we’ll only consider one application from you every six months (i.e. 6 months from the date you submitted your previous application). For these purposes, the definition of an 'application' includes any roles that you have been made an offer for. Therefore if you have been offered / accepted a role, you cannot apply to another vacancy. Please take the time to check that you're able to make a new application to us now. Our employees act with honesty and integrity so we expect the same from you. If you already work at PwC, please ensure that you have contacted the student recruitment team to discuss your application before you proceed. We take any attempts to circumvent this policy very seriously.
