Consulting School and College Leaver Apprenticeship

A position on our School and College Leaver programme is one of the best ways to kickstart your career with PwC. All of our School and College Leaver programmes 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.

Management Consulting

Transformation is in our DNA. Our unique combination of strategy, technology and management consulting expertise positions us as the go-to specialists for strategy-led, digitally-enabled, results-driven transformation programmes.

Through transformation we improve the way our clients operate; manage costs; better align people, process and technology initiatives; support business growth to maintain or improve competitive edge. In doing so, we focus on their strategic objectives and the big issues they need to deal with, both today and in the future.

You can choose to start in Management Consulting, where you’ll develop your core consulting and technical skills and gain a breadth of experience through a variety of roles, either across industries or engagements. Our Consulting practice has been in the top three The Times Top 100 Graduate Employer of Choice for Consulting, for the past seven consecutive years. We’ve also been externally recognised within the industry, winning two Management Consultancies Association Awards.

Join us, and like hundreds of consultants who have joined the programme previously you too can enjoy a successful career with us at PwC.

What you’ll do

You’ll typically find yourself working as part of a team of anything from 2 to 30 people or more, working on projects that can be based anywhere from the UK to the USA, or Middle East to Africa. Our Client projects are resourced Nationally, so travelling and living away from home will be required. When you are not on a project you are expected to be based out of your home office.

You’ll spend a lot of time with clients at their base locations dealing with issues as they arise, and gaining valuable exposure to different types of projects, internal and external, and diverse industries.
You’ll carry out detailed analysis and help make recommendations that change our clients’ businesses. This experience, combined with deep technical training, an emphasis on continual learning through different projects and the opportunity to work on internal support roles to gain specialist knowledge from within the network, will equip you with the skills to really make a difference.

We’ll monitor your development so you know how you're doing and where you can improve.
At this early stage in your career you’ll have access to inspirational leaders and this, coupled with the quality of the training you'll receive, means you'll become a recognised expert in the profession.

What you’ll gain

You will complete PwC’s Junior Management Consulting programme and you’ll also gain a Level 4 apprenticeship. We’ll support you to study for these qualifications whilst also learning the ropes by working with our internal teams.

What you’ll need

Minimum requirements are 112 UCAS tariff from up to three full A-Levels or equivalent (not including General Studies or Critical Thinking), and a Grade C or 4 or above in GCSE (or equivalent) English Language and Mathematics.

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.

Explore. Inspire. Reimagine.
