1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:

10/10

I work in a team that deals with private Client tax affairr. I assist very high-net worht individuals with their tax affairs and issues that may arise. I am part of a dual handlist team so I work in UK and US tax.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?

10/10

I have become much more confident when presenting and talking to others, as I have to have this level on confidence when speaking to clients.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?

10/10

I really enjoy working proffesionally, and getting money for a job that I enjoy. I am happy to be learning on the job everyday, rather than having to go to Uni.

4. How valued do you feel by PwC?

7/10

I feel really valued. From day one, I was not treated as the 'apprentice' as such, I was put in the deep end straight away, guided by my buddy to be doing proper, chargable clinet work.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?

6/10

I feel the programme is structured and organised and this has improved a lot from previous years where it was not so organised.

6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?

5/10

I feel that we should have more college days at Kaplan, and more study materails, espeically for the E-assessments that we are required to take.

6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?

10/10

Lots of support - we are not expected to work late when we have exams, even if this is close to busy deadline periods. The staff are very supportiuve and always offer help.

7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?

6/10

I feel that if I was to be renting in London, in order to come to work everyday, the starting costs of the job would not be enough. However, I am libing at home becasue of this reason and the pay is suffiecent.

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?

10/10

PwC offers many opportunites to get involved with the community and coming together as a firm. We gert many benefits which are great to use.

Yes

9b. Why? *

The firm is friendly and intergrating. The offices are proffessional and I really enjoy working there. There are many opportunites to get involved in within PwC, and the job (although callenging) is very rewarding.

Make sure you are prepared for your interview with details of the business unit you are applying to. Make sure you are interested and enjoy what line of service you are applying to. Make sure you are yourself.
