7.8/10

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

8/10

My role was under the assurance line where I worked as an internal auditor for three days. I researched relevant information and inputted the data onto Excel. I also learnt how to use specific systems like CRM which my client uses.

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

8/10

I have developed my networking skills and communications skills. Whilst working at the client site I discussed with the clients about the different matters and they had been friendly with me and helped me with my work.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?

8/10

I enjoyed this programme especially since it was my first time ever doing any type of work in assurance in a real life office. Not only that my assigned PwC buddy was very friendly and helpful like the clients.

4. How valued do you feel by PwC?

8/10

I felt that everyone in my surroundings made me feel welcomed and were also engaging with me.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?

8/10

The programme was very well organised. There was an induction day where PwC staff went over my schedule for the week. They had also emailed me this schedule before the programme which I found helpful. There were also a lot of opportunities and schemes that PwC offered. They talked to us about the different schemes and told us more information on it.

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

7/10

I received a lot of guidance from my training provider. PwC made sure I was assigned to a supportive PwC employee who helped me with various tasks throughout the week and also gave me tours around the building.

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

8/10

Similarly, I did receive a lot of support. The recruitment team went through the various offers they have and how it might help us in the future. Not only that the local recruiter will call me to talk to me about my next steps after the work experience week had ended.

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

8/10

I had the option to reimburse any travel costs and lunch was supplied at times. Since it is a paid work placement,the salary is good.

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?

7/10

There are some opportunities outside of work. However it is difficult to find paid work placements where you actually do work instead of just shadowing.

9a. Would you recommend PwC to a friend? *

Yes

9b. Why? *

I think PwC is a great firm. The Insight Week is really useful even if you don't want to go down that route. This is because throughout the week I did not only learn about assurance I also developed key business acumen like networking skills and also learnt about the importance of personal brands etc.

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to PwC? *

Make sure you are up to date with current affairs and have an understanding of how it may impact businesses.
