1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
We work on a rotational programme so we do a series of different roles for different teams across the business. No day is ever the same, I could be in a meeting with a clients one day and making powerpoints the next. Very varied.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
The most important skill I have learnt is how to articulate myself and how to communicate effectively.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I really enjoy it. Not every day is going to be sunshine and lollipops but overall I've had a good time and met some really interesting people.
4. How valued do you feel by PwC?
I would say they are still getting to grips with the value and position of apprentices in the business but I do feel valued.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
Again It is well structured but in time it will become even better as they make continuous improvements
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
The training provider we use has changed to a better one for continuous improvement and from what I hear they are good.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
We have a dedicated person to help us with our learning and development and I definitely appreciate having someone to ask questions when needed.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
Well paid with no student debt. You also get added benefits. I no longer live at home, I'm independent because my salary more then covers the cost.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
There are lots of things to do outside your normal role. Things like the GLEE club, the yearly Panto, an array of sports clubs etc.
9a. Would you recommend PwC to a friend? *
9b. Why? *
They treat their staff well and are a good employer. Very good training programmes and good progression through the firm.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to PwC? *
Don't go into an interview thinking you can 'wing it' it will not work. Do some research read the news. Know who PwC are before you apply.
