Sales and marketing

Join us on an 11-month work placement in our Sales and Marketing Team (SMT)

This large, fast-paced team covers a wide range of critical business activities within PwC; from event management, corporate hospitality, research, strategic marketing (proposition development and campaigns), through to business development, proposal support and key account management.

SMT are focussed on supporting the development and implementation of our market strategy - specifically, driving revenue growth, enhancing relationships and networks, and therefore creating a distinctive brand experience. This exciting work placement provides the opportunity to work within a market-leading professional services organisation.

What you'll do

You’ll develop the foundations of a marketing and business development career aligned to one of our regional, industry, or line of service business areas. We’re an innovative, creative and fun team operating at a fast pace to react to the market trends, take advantage of commercial opportunities and provide an insight to the PwC practice staff - from new joiners on our graduate scheme through to Partners. It’s an interesting place to work and a hands-on role.

The experience is gained by delivery and “doing” rather than sitting next to someone watching what they do. The nature of the role also provides opportunities to develop other “soft skills” which are highly valued by employers such as teamwork, leadership and influencing skills amongst others.

This placement will give you first-hand experience within an organisation that has marketing and business development at the core of its strategy. It will be challenging, exciting, fast-paced and most of all, rewarding.
