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


The week consisted of an induction day, 3 days of shadowing and an assessment centre day. The 3 days of shadowing consisted of 1.5 days in Tax and 1.5 days in TS. In both departments I was given client projects to work on and got to use excel and other programmes. We got paired with a buddy who helped us complete our taks, although everyone in the office was more than happy to help.

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


I was able to enhance many skills such as communication, team work and technical skills to name a few. I received training in Excel which is very useful and over the week I learnt many new skills.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


I loved the programme: it was interactive and you got to work on actual projects and even listen in on live client projects. You were never bored!

4. How valued do you feel by PwC?


PwC were very nice to us: gave us freebies and treated us like actual employees. Our induction was very insightful and our final day was really enjoyable. PwC really value you.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?


You get a timetable so everything you will be doing is layed out. As descried above: Day 1 - Introduction Day 2 - Shadowing Day 3 - Shadowing Day 4 - Shadowing Day 5 - Assessment Centre/ Celebration

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


Lots! We got a buddy, all employees helped us and I even got talking to people sitting in reception. I talked to people on the HApps programme and even the flying start degree programme.

Same as above.
