Applications are now closed for our summer 2021 programme. Applications for our summer 2022 programme will open in autumn this year.

The aim of the programme is to foster Black undergraduate talent. Black talent is currently underrepresented in our industry and recent stats have shown that there are only 11 Black equity partners across the largest four accountancy firms in the UK, with over 50% of these being partners at PwC. Although 32% of PwC’s 2020 intake were from an ethnic minority background compared to the 25% ethnic minority students at UK Universities. However, only 2% of our graduates were Black compared to 4% of Black students in the UK university population eligible for our programmes. So we know we have more work to do in reaching Black students and encouraging them to explore opportunities at PwC.

Through our Black Talent in Business programme you’ll complete a 3-day virtual programme, which could lead to an offer of an internship or 11 month placement with the aim of securing a graduate role with us on completing your degree. 

Open to all first year students on a three-year degree or second year students on a four-year degree. We’re looking for students who are seeking an experience in professional services.

Through interactive sessions the programme will help you to develop confidence in a business setting and encourage you to bring your whole self to the workplace. At PwC, we nurture an environment where our people can be the best they can be.
