PwC

Business Insight Week - 2017

On our Business Insight Week we’ll put you through your paces, with guidance and support every step of the way to explore the work we do and the opportunities we can offer you. You’ll spend time with teams working on live projects and buddying up with a member of the PwC team just a little older than you. You'll get a unique insight into how the world of business works and what it’s like to start your career here. We'll spend time helping you identify the employability skills you already have and how you can develop these further to give you the best possible start to a career in business. We'll top it all off by sharing your experiences with other students on the programme and celebrating a fantastic week.

Once you've finished the programme, we'll spend time giving you valuable feedback on your performance, talking you through your options and helping you to decide on your next steps - which could include a fast track to securing a permanent School and College Leaver role with us.
