Working in Risk Assurance as a Graduate

Whichever programme you join in Risk Assurance, you’ll have the opportunity to work with a variety of clients and industries. You’ll be on the front line working in a team, closely supporting our clients to help them reduce their exposure to risk. 

Our work continues to evolve – working with clients exposed to heightened market and business risk while also meeting the continued demand for more reliable data, stronger corporate governance, accountability and transparency. 

Our Risk Assurance teams include:

  • Technology, Data and Analytics - Brings technology risk and data and analytics experts together to help our clients transform their technology, deal with risk & regulatory challenges, respond to crises and operate their businesses effectively.

  • Cyber Security - Works with organisations to build and assure their cyber security defences and if attacked help respond to breaches.

  • Business Risk and Controls -  Delivers independent business assurance and advisory to the Board (and Board Committees) to support the effectiveness of risk management, control and governance processes.

  • Risk Modelling Services - Delivers analytics, validation and model risk management solutions across credit risk, market risk, operational risk and compliance risk areas.

We’re investing in our talent and innovating our tools and technologies to strengthen our business - staying at the cutting edge with new techniques.  Our people have a sense of pride as Risk professionals - pushing boundaries to become truly distinctive in the marketplace.

Joining as a graduate

From the moment you join us, our Risk Assurance graduate training pathways will equip you with the digital, technical and professional skills needed to progress and succeed in PwC. Investing in our people is important to us. During your career we'll support your development, providing the skills and knowledge you need to become a Risk professional. 

You'll work closely with your individual teams and collaborate with other graduates to build a strong, meaningful cohort that you’ll grow with in the future years. You’ll never stop learning and we will continue to invest in your development as your career progresses. 

From the outset you’ll be delivering solutions for our clients to meet their needs today and prepare them for what comes tomorrow.  

For our Risk Assurance programmes, you'll need to have or be on course for a 2.1 degree or above and for the majority of roles this can be in any subject. However some of our specialist areas may have specific degree requirements.

Life in Risk Assurance

Organisations are looking for trusted partners, now more than ever, to help them navigate disruption and change. For an ever-growing group of clients, we’re that partner. Many of our teams will visit their clients, providing a unique insight to establish the core route of issues impacting their business and to project manage solutions end-to-end.

Our Risk Assurance practice is focused on developing leaders of society at all levels within the firm. Those who are authentic, who inspire, who lead by example and who consistently demonstrate the right behaviours and values. Leadership isn’t always about leading others, it’s also about leading yourself. You’ll be at the forefront of many of the big issues impacting society. 

Our Risk teams have an inclusive culture where people can bring their real selves to work and where difference and individuality is celebrated. We also encourage our people to support many of the charity partnerships we have at PwC and spend time focusing on personal wellbeing and resilience. 

The future of Risk Assurance

The age of disruption is bringing new complexities, new opportunities, and new risks to the business landscape. Alongside this the potential for crises has intensified — driven by rapid technological change and amplified by societal expectations around trust and social responsibility.

We’ve invested heavily in our internal technologies. Our Frontier Labs have been designed to help us bring client issues to life in a real, practical and engaging way, allowing us to work much more collaboratively. Think augmented reality experiences, robotics and the latest tools for measuring emotional intelligence through wearable technology - over the next few years, our Risk Assurance teams will play a vital role in developing how this technology will be used for virtual collaborations, idea generation and information sharing.

Our Ideas Refinery platform encourages innovation and creativity and gives our people the opportunity to share ideas and to help shape the way that we do business in the future. Whether quick wins or big moves, all ideas are considered.

Throughout your time with us, we’ll support you to reach your potential and access career enhancing opportunities. Our Graduates of today will be leaders of tomorrow.
