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


I have learnt how to communicate with a range of different people and feel confident when working and talking with others. I have learnt how to act professionally and how to calculate many financial calculations and complete documents such as a Tax Return.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


I thoroughly enjoyed my programme and it completely exceeded my expectations. I enjoyed meeting everyone and have made friends for life. I would love to come back to PwC as it has been a pleasure.

Anything I needed my buddy/training provider was there to assist me with regardless of how big or small. I couldn't have asked for better they were fantastic!

The PwC employer was very welcoming and ensured we felt comfortable in the business environment. Any problems we had were dealt with quickly and with the upmost patience.

The package was an added bonus as I got paid for doing something I thoroughly enjoyed and covered all costs including travel and food such as lunch.

There are many opportunities outside of work. Social opportunities to bond with colleagues and other opportunities to develop as a person and further your career and qualifications.
