Tax School and College Leaver Programme - Corporate, Indirect, OneGM and R&E - Northern Ireland
A position on our School and College Leaver programme is one of the best ways to kickstart your career with PwC. All of our apprenticeships are designed to help you develop your business skills through real client work, while also completing formal training and studying towards qualifications to give you a head start in your career. PwC will provide you with support all the way. You’ll earn a competitive salary, benefit from our excellent support networks and have the opportunity to continually progress your career. Just like our graduate joiners, you’ll work on varied and challenging client and internal projects, which make a real difference to the world of business. You’ll be coached by our people, who are experts in their field, and at the same time, thanks to our study support, you won’t need to worry about paying for course and exam fees, textbooks or revision materials.
Every time you buy a packet of crisps, go to the cinema, download an app or get paid for your part-time job, some of your money gets paid to the Government in tax. And it gets spent on schools, the NHS and a host of other public services. But it’s not straightforward.
As individuals, we pay different rates of tax. So imagine how tricky it is as a business when you’re employing staff, making millions of pounds in profits or relocating to another country. And if you don’t get it right, there are penalties. That’s why it’s essential our clients understand their tax obligations and how to manage them effectively, ethically and within legislation.
You could work in the following teams:
- Corporate Tax
- Indirect Tax
- People and Organisation
From day one you'll start to build a promising career, specialising in the ever-changing field of tax. Your responsibilities will include a range of tasks which will vary depending upon the area of Tax you join. However generally this will involve:
- technical research
- attending meetings with senior staff
- establishing and developing third party relationships such as with the Inland Revenue
- drafting client correspondence
- general office duties.
What you’ll gain
You'll enjoy plenty of practical, on-the-job training while studying for a professional qualification with the ATT (Association of Tax Technicians) as a core part of your apprenticeship.
What you’ll need
- Minimum requirements are 96 UCAS tariff from up to three full A-Levels (or equivalent), and a Grade C or 4 or above in GCSE (or equivalent) English Language and Mathematics. Please check our website for specific requirements.
- Exams must have been taken in the same sitting and resits are accepted only where modules or papers have been retaken in the same academic year. If you have any extenuating circumstances related to your exam marks or the sequencing of your exams, please declare this on your application and this will be considered as we review your application.
Opportunities are at the heart of a career with PwC. Our purpose is to build trust in society and solve important problems for our clients, helping them tackle business challenges and improving how they work. We have school and college leaver opportunities in Assurance, Consulting, Deals, Tax or Technology.
Our aim is to be ‘the leading professional services firm’, and to achieve this we must be innovative, responsible and attract outstanding people. With almost 18,000 employees at offices UK-wide, attracting the right talent continues to be paramount and, as a progressive employer, we continue to develop a diverse and agile workforce who feel empowered to be the best they can be. This includes supporting different ways of working, with ‘Everyday Flexibility’ allowing our people to better balance work and life, and ‘dress for your day’, where employees decide what’s appropriate to wear given their daily responsibilities.
