What you can expect from the Edge programme

The Swiss Edge programme foresees four six-months rotations and one twelve months rotation (in your third year) within Corporate Finance / M&A, Transaction Services, Valuations, Delivering Deal Value, Capital Markets & Accounting Advisory Services and M&A Tax, across our Deals industries. All rotations are planned depending on our business needs.

Please note, that the Edge programme for Financial Services (FS) will have rotations within our FS Deals competency groups.

Our 10-15% top performers will have the opportunity to take part in an international exchange and work in another EMEA country for a period of six months. To be selected, you will need to perform at the highest-level right from the start of the Edge programme. Something worth aiming for, right?

 

Have a grasp of the programme

At PwC we’re inspired to help you grow

We designed Edge to give you a ‘helicopter’ view of our Deals business. This will mean you’ll continuously learn something new and exciting. To help you through this learning process, you will be supported by relevant training courses, as well as by a team of professionals offering mentoring and “buddy” support.

To ensure that you get the best technical training to complement what you learn on the job, the programme requires the completion of a professional qualification (ACCA, CFA or CMA).
