Student Delivery Model | PwC

Organise your work yourself: you decide when and where you want to do your tasks.

The Student Delivery Model (SDM) allows audit teams to handover specific tasks to students. This innovative collaboration enables highly flexible working hours. We give you the freedom to decide which tasks you want to complete and when. You can complete tasks in the university library after the lecture or directly from your desk at home.

We offer internships in all our line of services: Assurance, Tax & Legal Services, Internal Firm Services, Deals, Consulting and Digital Services.

How our Student Delivery Model works

What requirements do you have to meet

Have you already successfully completed an internship at PwC? Or are you looking for a student job that allows you to work flexibly? Perfect! Then you can apply as a working student for our Student Delivery Model! You’ll go through our standard interview process and if it’s a match, you’ll receive a job contract and a laptop from us.

What do you need to get started

It’s very easy to get started! You can login and access our SDM-Platform where you’ll see all available tasks and apply for the one you like best. And as soon as a new task is available, you will receive an email.

You decide when, where, how and how much you work

Work when it suits you! You can take tasks flexibly and above all you can work wherever you want. All you have to do is make sure that you follow the guidelines of the respective tasks. And due to Swiss tax regulations, you need to conduct the work in Switzerland.

You have questions about your task

Your contact person in the audit team is always available for further questions. You are, as in an internship, part of the audit team.

Task completed?

When you have completed your task, just send it back and it will be reviewed by the audit team. You will report the hours you needed for the task. Afterwards you will receive an hourly payment.
