Private Client Compliance (ATT) School Leaver Programme

We help our clients stay ahead of the changes that impact their business. Equipped with the scale of a seamlessly connected global network, we’re where they need us – delivering deep tax technical expertise, while providing the critical context to help make informed and compliant decisions that drive their operations forward. At a global and local level, we design best-in-class integrated tax and legal strategies that empower clients to move from complexity to execution.

Our expertise covers every conceivable area of taxation. Our tax experts proactively engage in the tax policy debate and are focused on leading views and new ideas. Your knowledge will help high-profile organisations, entrepreneurs and family businesses, understand complex rules and make informed decisions with significant impacts. Our people need to be flexible and ready to build strong relationships, networks and leadership skills.

Private Client Compliance Services

Working in Tax you’ll help clients – from the largest organisations to budding entrepreneurs and high net worth individuals – manage their tax risk, understand their obligations and comply with complex legislation. You’ll tackle a broad range of work that includes multinational advisory projects, mergers and acquisitions advice, tax compliance and researching business issues that affect clients’ tax affairs.

You’ll work with clients on matters critical to their business including interpreting developments in case law, the implications of moving into new territories or introducing new products.

You could be involved in purely UK activities or global projects, working on more efficient internal processes or on a merger or acquisition.

Programme

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.

What you’ll do

Working within the Compliance Services (CS) team you’ll have the opportunity to work with our high profile clients on their personal, corporate and indirect tax returns. Example activities might include:

  • Deliver clean data for preparation activities.
  • Work with our clients to gather information for data exchange.
  • Responsibility for requesting data from clients and taxpayers.
  • Ensuring that any non-standard activity is captured and shared in advance of undertaking the work
  • Prepare tax works/calculations, making any necessary amendments based on instruction from the reviewer, client portfolio leader, client or taxpayer.

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 programme, which is a nationally recognised qualification.

What you’ll need

Minimum requirements are 96 UCAS* for the ATT pathway or 112 UCAS * for the CFAB pathway 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.

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.

*The UCAS tariff varies depending on the team and the professional qualification.

Do you need a work permit?

Please take some time to confirm your eligibility for the role. We welcome applications from all candidates but there are restrictions to some areas of our business and some points you should note on our website.

Please note that PwC is unable to sponsor any candidates for some roles as the Home Office’s eligibility criteria will not be satisfied. For a list of these roles, please review the ‘Important information’ section of the work permit page on our website.

The Deal

We want all of our people to feel empowered to be the best that they can be, which is why we have ‘The Deal’.

Diversity

Valuing Difference. Driving Inclusion

We work in a changing world which offers great opportunities for people with diverse backgrounds and experiences. We seek to attract and employ the best people from the widest talent pool because creating value through diversity is what makes us strong as a business, enabling us to solve important problems and deliver value to our clients. We encourage an inclusive culture where people can be themselves, are valued for their strengths and are empowered to be the best they can be. As an organisation with an increasingly agile workforce, we also support different ways of working offering flexible working arrangements.

About PwC

Our purpose is to build trust in society and solve important problems. Helping clients and communities address the biggest challenges they face has never been more important. Our global strategy, called The New Equation, brings our purpose to life by bringing our people together to solve problems, often in unexpected ways to reflect the unique challenges of our times. We employ over 22,000 people across the UK, and attracting and retaining the best people is critical - as is empowering you with the best technology to power innovation.

We'll support you to create a career that works for you, as part of a team and an environment where you can be the best you can be. Which is why we have ‘The Deal’ - our firmwide Employee Value Proposition. It clearly articulates what a career with PwC really looks and feels like and sets out what you can expect from your experience at the firm.
