About PwC

Be part of something special. Join the organisation that's been voted number one in The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers survey for the last eight years. You'll enjoy exceptional business exposure, build wide-ranging skills and life-long relationships, and gain valuable professional qualifications.


Deliver practical, insightful advice that gets straight to the heart of the big business issues. Whichever part of Consulting you join, you'll help businesses of all shapes and sizes grow faster and work smarter. And whatever issues you're tackling on their behalf, you'll deliver results they can measure and a standard of client service that's truly second to none.

As a graduate, you can choose to start your career in Management Consulting, building****a range of core skills on a two-year structured programme where you'll experience the full range of what we do, developing your skills in all industries. This will give you a taste of what it's like to help clients drive innovation and growth, manage cost and operate effectively. At the same time it will help you decide where you want to specialise within Consulting. Or, if you'd rather specialise from the beginning, you can join one of three consulting practices straight away - Strategy, Economics or Sustainability and Climate Change,

In Strategy Consulting you'll address the key strategic issues on the minds of CEOs and senior executives. The advice you'll offer covers both corporate strategy - such as market entry, competitive strategy and organisation structure - and Merger & Acquisition strategy, helping private equity investors with the strategic aspects of deals.

In Economics Consulting you'll work alongside and learn from experienced economists who use their expertise to tackle complex business and policy issues.

Sustainability & Climate Change Consulting helps clients embed sustainability in their strategies and throughout their organisations, while making the most of the opportunities for innovation and growth created by a world economy that's becoming greener.

    What makes us different

In short, this is your chance to enjoy a huge variety of experiences, develop an enormous breadth of skills and build relationships that will stay with you throughout your life. Like all PwC people, you can also look forward to a competitive salary and a personally tailored benefits package.

Who we look for

  • A 2:1 or above in any degree discipline

  • A UCAS tariff of at least 340 (or equivalent) If you're applying for Sustainability and Climate Change you must also have a Masters in the Sustainability or Environmental field.

Equally important will be your ability to build relationships, to put yourself in others' shoes and make a positive impact on our clients and us, while shaping your own future.

Exceptional exam results or exceptional potential?

But maybe you don't have the grades we're after because you've invested time in extra-curricular activities that show you're exceptional. If so, you could still join us. 'Inspired Talent' is our entry route that recognises exam results aren't the only way to prove you have potential.
