1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
The PwC business insight week involved me shadowing team members from tax and assurance. Each day I was working on a client project, which gave me experience of working with real clients and how to deal with the clients.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I have learnt how to interact with the clients of PwC in a manner which exerts professionalism but also friendliness. I have also improved my communication skills by speaking with clients and also speaking to other Pwc employees.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
The programme was enjoyable because you were made to feel welcome every step of the way by everyone at Pwc. The team always ensured that I felt comfortable with what was going on as to begin with it could feel slightly daunting.
4. How valued do you feel by PwC?
Right from the start I felt valued by PwC because of the amount of effort which was put into making the week a success. We were given laptops for the week, which were used to carry out work on a day to day basis. From day one within the office I was working on real client projects.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
The programme was organiesed extremely well as on the first day we all met and had an induction day. This enabled us to undertand what the week would entail and what was expected of us. There was contious contact leading up to and throughout the week, and there was always a number of people to contact if I had a query.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
I received a vast amount of support as everything was meticulously planned out for the week. If there was ever a problem they would aim to sort it as soon as possible, which was a great help.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
The team at the office were great with making sure that I knew what was going on and if there was anything specific I wanted to get out of the week. If I didnt understand something they would always explain and make sure I was comfortable with what was happening.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
Travel costs to the induction day and client project were covered, however travel to and from the base office was not reimbursed. The salary was very good, and no other costs were incurred.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
During my work experience week I got the opportunity to attend a chamber of Commerce meeting, which enable me to speak to potential clients for PwC.
9a. Would you recommend PwC to a friend? *
9b. Why? *
I would recommend PwC to a freind because the vast amount of effort put into the week was astonishing. Also how valued they make you feel really makes you feel like you are part of the team.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to PwC? *
I would advise people to ask as many questions as you can so that you dont get left behind. I would also advise people to be passionate about what they are doing and get stuck into the week, as it is a great opportunity.
