Talent must be nurtured

With us you can develop both personally and professionally. Here, you won't be asked to set a final goal, because that might limit your progress. That's why we invest nine per cent of our annual turnover in the personal development, as well as the training, of our employees.

'Personal responsibility is very important here. I was really challenged and fully involved in projects from day one. The team spirit is incredibly motivating, and I learned a lot from my personal mentor – much more than I ever expected. Thanks for a great time!'

Education and training opportunities for:

Be the best you can be

Working at PwC, you'll never stop learning. During your internship, we will support and challenge you. For example, you will be involved in exciting customer projects right from the start, and working closely with your team, you'll learn something new every day.

You'll be assigned a personal mentor from the beginning, and have a 'buddy' by your side. They are there to answer your questions and help you find your feet.

Your mentor will give you regular constructive feedback to help you keep on track with your personal and professional goals. Mentors are also there to guide you through the process of translating theory into practice, and to actively support your daily learning.

Your personal buddy helps you create your own networks. He'll share his experience with you, allowing you to gain confidence and rapidly get to grips with office routines. So you'll never be just on your own at PwC!

Where you go and how long you spend abroad will depend on your personal development goals and your host country's requirements. That could perhaps mean a two-week stay in London, or a two-year work placement in Buenos Aires.
