PwC Edge Programme

Edge - PwC's Deals Graduate Programme

You bring the passion and the talent, and we’ll give you the edge to be an international deals expert.

Are you in your final year of university, looking for a great way to start your career, and interested in helping companies do deals? If so, then we have a unique opportunity for you! Join Edge, the PwC Deals Graduate Programme for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), and become part of a unique, leading-edge development experience.

At the International Deals Foundation Event (IDFE) you will meet all other newly joined “Edgies” (this is how we call our programme participants) and PwC Deals leaders from across EMEA. You will get a taste of the work that you’ll be doing in the Deals business. Following that, you’ll commence in the Deals business at our Zurich office where you will rotate through different Deals competency groups across the Deals platform. You will be involved in a variety of project work with numerous local and international clients and teams.

Our Deals teams help provide transaction support in major mergers and acquisitions.

We call it Edge, because it’s cutting-edge.

She is a deal-maker

Our Edge graduate programme positively encourages applications from females and is committed to creating an inclusive workplace that actively supports female career progression throughout our Deals business. We asked some of our senior female Deals colleagues and role models to tell us why they chose Deals and to share their experiences working in the dynamic and diverse Deals business at PwC.

An exciting graduate programme tailored by PwC Deals across Europe, Middle East, Africa (EMEA) and Asia Pacific to launch your career in an international Deals environment.

What you can expect from the Edge programme

The Swiss Edge programme foresees four nine-month rotations 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. The last 9-months will take place in the final team where your further Deals career starts.

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).
