Our application process

From your application to starting work with us

Learn about the stages your application will pass through, about our selection criteria for new hires, and what we value in our new colleagues. To determine the latter, we asked our clients and staff to tell us what makes people at PwC successful. We have based our core competencies on their answers: 

  • Team-oriented outlook
  • Motivation
  • Client focus
  • Ability to analyse and solve problems

Our selection process is based on these core competencies.
