About the Programme
A position on our School and College Leaver programme is one of the best ways to kickstart your career with PwC. All of our School and College Leaver programmes are designed to help you develop your business skills through real client work, while also completing formal training and studying towards qualifications to give you a head start in your career.
PwC will provide you with support all the way. You’ll earn a competitive salary, benefit from our excellent support networks and have the opportunity to continually progress your career. Just like our graduate joiners, you’ll work on varied and challenging client and internal projects, which make a real difference to the world of business. You’ll be coached by our people, who are experts in their field, and at the same time, thanks to our study support, you won’t need to worry about paying for course and exam fees, textbooks or revision materials.
What to Expect
Our Core Tax programme will see you rotate across our Direct, Indirect and Reward & Employment Tax teams in the first two years of your PwC journey, before aligning to a particular part of our Tax practice in your third year.
In Direct Tax you’ll help clients manage their tax risk and comply with complex legislation. Our clients are wide ranging: from FTSE 100 companies and global organisations, to budding entrepreneurs, high-net worth individuals and family businesses.
As part of our Indirect Tax practice, you could be involved in everything from advising clients on the VAT implications of their UK activities, to a global project looking at the clients’ supply chain. Or considering the impact of case law developments, to advising on a merger or acquisition.
Our multidisciplinary Reward and Employment team advises clients on the most effective way of incentivising and rewarding their employees. You’ll draw on your problem-solving and analytical skills to develop reward structures that support business strategy, drive appropriate behaviours, and are considered fair to shareholders and employees alike.
Qualifications You’ll Gain
ATT – You’ll enjoy plenty of practical, on-the-job training while studying for a professional qualification with the ATT (Association of Tax Technicians) as a core part of your programme, which is a nationally recognised qualification.
Minimum requirements are 96 UCAS* for the ATT pathway or 112 UCAS * for the CFAB pathway from up to three full A-Levels (or equivalent), and a Grade C or 4 or above in GCSE (or equivalent) English Language and Mathematics.
