Working with Purpose

Our purpose is to build trust in society and solve important problems. Helping clients and communities address the biggest challenges they face has never been more important.

Our global strategy, called The New Equation, brings our purpose to life by bringing our people together to solve problems, often in unexpected ways to reflect the unique challenges of our times. We employ over 22,000 people across the UK, and attracting and retaining the best people is critical - as is empowering you with the best technology to power innovation. We'll support you to create a career that works for you, as part of a team and an environment where you can be the best you can be. Which is why we have ‘The Deal’ - our firmwide Employee Value Proposition. It clearly articulates what a career with PwC really looks and feels like and sets out what you can expect from your experience at the firm. Investing in our people is central to our strategy and in some areas, this could mean working towards a professional qualification. In return we ask that you’ll be eager to learn, with business awareness, intellectual and cultural curiosity and the ability to build strong relationships. You’ll be encouraged to work together, share knowledge and insights that foster innovation, drive impact and deliver quality to your clients. Joining PwC is your opportunity to learn with purpose, lead with heart and make a positive impact on the world. You can expect to be part of a stimulating environment working on challenging projects in a culture that embraces the different perspectives our people bring.

  • Support and encouragement

    There are so many routes into PwC. Once you’ve joined, everyone helps you fit into a role that really suits you, and you find yourself surrounded by so much support and encouragement - it really is a brilliant place to work.
  • Invaluable hands-on experience

    One of the reasons why I chose the Degree Apprenticeship is that it gave me the opportunity to earn a salary while I study. The theory I learn at university is completely relevant to the tasks I complete within my role at PwC - it’s invaluable hands-on experience
  • Lots to learn

    If you’re considering applying to PwC, I’d recommend it wholeheartedly. When you join the firm, you’ll receive unwavering support and respect from all your colleagues, who are eager to see you succeed. There’s lots to learn and so many new people to meet.
You will not be disappointed, and the opportunities are endless. It’s a real pleasure being able to work alongside people who are the best in their field - not only does it push you to work harder to unlock your full potential, but it provides an insight of what your own career could look like in the near future if you make the most out of the resources around you. No two journeys or experiences here are the same, which means that collaboratively we excel as a team and as a firm overall.
