Recruitment Process

PWC

First step in the process is Why PwC?

As part of getting ready to apply to PwC, be ready to tell us why you’ve chosen us and in which part of the business you want to work.

Application form

To apply, you’ll need all the usual stuff (CV, academic transcript etc) for your application form, and we’ll also want to know all about you. Success at PwC isn’t just about your grades - let us know about your hobbies, your achievements and the things that you’re passionate about. 

Please read the Summer Internship or Graduate Programme FAQs before applying. It's important that you don't apply for more than one role. We'll ask you for your first, second and third choices.

Check out which part of the business you want to work in to find out further information about the business units before applying.This will give you a really good understanding of what each area does.

Our roles fill quickly so please get your application in as soon as possible.

Assessment and video interview

At this step we’ll ask you to do some online testing and a video of yourself answering some questions.

For the video interview we recommend using the STAR method:

  • Situation - clearly set the context and provide a brief description of a situation where you demonstrated a specific capability.
  • Task - provide a brief description of the task that you were required to undertake to address the situation.
  • Action - describe the actions that you took to resolve the situation. This is the most important part of your answer.
  • Results - share an achievement statement that provides the evidence that your actions were effective and this should include the outcome.

And don’t forget to breathe - you got this!

Please complete these steps of the application process as soon as possible.

Business leader interview

The final step will be a conversation with a business leader. This is about making sure that we’re a good fit for each other.

As much as we’re interviewing you, you’re also interviewing us - so make sure you have your questions ready, particularly about the specific business area you want to work with.

For the interviews we recommend using the STAR method again.

Just be yourself - you got this!

The outcome

If we’re a good match, we'll verbally offer you a role and then send you a contract - woohoo!

If you're unsuccessful after the business leader interview, then we’ll let you know and give you the opportunity to ask for feedback. We know you’ve invested time in our process and we do appreciate it.
