National: Finance, Tech and Business Management: PwC Flying Start Insight Day online

Tuesday, October 12, 2021
10:00 AM - 12:30 PM


Please note: this event is an online session.
There are 60 spaces available for this event, and all students are welcome to register, regardless of location. You will just need a reliable internet connection or be able to telephone dial-in. Please make sure you have access to Zoom from your chosen device.


PwC is one of the Big Four Accounting Firms that provide professional services to companies worldwide. They specialise in finance, accountancy (audit), advisory, tax and technology.

PwC tackles lots of different issues faced by different organisations, entrepreneurs and private businesses to help them run their organisations better. 

The agenda for this session could include:

  • Introduction
  • Finance, Business Management and Technology career overview
  • Interactive industry task (real-life client problem solving)
  • Meeting ambassadors from the Flying Start Programme
  • Wrap up and Q&A. 

Dive into Flying Start and University 

Attending this virtual event will give you the chance to discover more about life at PwC. During this interactive session, you'll find out about their flying start programmes, and you'll hear from their people. You'll pick up lots of information about the work they do and the application process, to help you to decide which of the flying start options interests you most and how to get there. In this session, they'll focus particularly on the work they do in finance, business management and technology, how they help their clients, and what it takes to pursue a career in this exciting, fast-changing sector.

So what's Flying Start?

If you want to go to university but you're also keen to begin your career, PwC's Flying Start degree programmes offer the best of both worlds.

You’ll get to work with world-class clients and be part of their highly skilled teams. Studying at university you’ll get to experience the full-time student lifestyle but with integrated paid placements at PwC, you’ll have some money to enjoy it too. You’ll gain a degree and hopefully impress PwC enough to secure a graduate job with them after you graduate.
