Earn while you learn

On one of our Higher Apprenticeships in Assurance, Consulting, Financial Advisory or Tax, you’ll earn a competitive salary while you study towards a professional qualification. You’ll be part of a team, working on client projects, which means you’ll be learning on the job, building the in-depth business knowledge you’ll need to progress through our business. You can find out more information about our opportunities for school and college leavers and more about the firm by attending one of our Career Information Days. We’ll be running them all year at our offices UK-wide. Find out more at www.pwc.com/uk/schools
Fast track your accounting career
If you want to go to university, and know you want to ultimately have a career as an accountant, then our PwC-endorsed degree offers the best of both worlds. It could set you on your path to qualify more quickly as a Chartered Accountant, and means you could even secure a job offer with us once you graduate. That’s why we call it our Flying Start Degree Programme. You get a traditional university experience as a full-time student, alongside paid work placements with our Assurance practice, and exposure to our world-class clients.

Undergraduates and graduates
If you’re going to university and want to study a subject you’re passionate about, this still could lead you to join one of our graduate trainee programmes. It may seem a long way off now, but if you’re serious about a career in business you should consider finding out about our work experience programmes for undergraduates. We have some aimed at first years – with our Insight day or Talent Academy. We have other programmes too. We’ve designed different experiences for each year you’re at university. Each of them gives you an opportunity to meet us, and find out what we do. As well as gain work experience, which will help with your job applications.
