School & College Leaver Programme - Assurance

Vacancy Description

A position on our school & college leaver Assurance programme is one of the earliest ways of joining PwC to start training for a professional qualification.

Our school & college leaver programme students get involved in many different tasks, supporting our audit teams on assignments working for FTSE 100 companies, large multinational organisations as well as small, fast-growing enterprises, charities and government bodies.

You will learn about all aspects of an audit and you will be given responsibility. For example:

  • Reviewing assets
  • Attending stocktakes
  • Calculating depreciation
  • Verifying expenditure and preparing accounts
  • Collating company information
  • Dealing with clients' creditors, suppliers and customers

Each audit will involve some office-based work, but the majority of your time will be spent out at clients' offices. This may involve frequent travel and sometimes staying away from home.

Professional Qualifications

You will be able to study towards the ACCA qualification to become a Chartered Certified Accountant. Or alternatively you can study towards the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales (ICAEW).

Who is this vacancy for?

Do you need a Work Permit?
