The PwC Deal
No matter which area of the business you choose to join, all routes offer the same deal. The opportunity to grow as an individual, to meet new people, and build lasting relationships that will stay with you for life. Your hard work will be rewarded with a competitive salary and a personally tailored benefits package.
Head Start School and College leaver programme
A position on our Head Start School and College leaver programme is one of the best ways of jumping into a career with PwC early. You'll learn and develop the specialist skills our clients look for and value most and study towards a professional qualification, with support from us all the way.
Your knowledge will help high-profile businesses, entrepreneurs and family businesses understand complex rules and make informed decisions with significant impacts. You'll also help governments ensure the efficient operation of tax systems, and use your insight to solve long-term problems. You'll be part of a business that's committed to proactively engaging with the tax policy debate and focused on leading views and new ideas.
You’ll help some of the world’s leading employers make the most of their biggest asset – their people.
You’ll work on a broad range of projects helping clients design their global mobility programme, stay compliant in a world of ever changing legislation and move their people globally with ease.
Our clients range from household names with large scale employee mobility to organisations starting to move their people and needing help to formalise what they are doing.
Whatever stage they are at our clients all want to incentivise and retain their people. They are facing a changing world and need our help to think differently about how they do this. Mobility is at the heart of this conversation.
What you'll gain
As part of the programme you'll undertake a structured, self directed learning programme, gaining knowledge of the industry and market, technical skills, self development & awareness, leadership skills and commercial awareness.
You'll enjoy plenty of practical, on-the-job training while studying for a professional qualification with the Association of Taxation Technicians (ATT). The great thing is, by the time you complete your exams, you'll have lots of valuable experience to build on.
