Graduate training programme

Grads 2019

Do you want a career that lets you seek out new opportunities, challenges the status quo and expands your horizons? Do you want to work for an organisation that sees you as an individual with knowledge, ambition and a distinctive identity? PwC is that organisation. Each year PwC Gibraltar recruits graduates to train as Chartered or Certified Accountants.

Successful applicants will be given a three year training contract which will get you through your professional qualifications.  We will support your studies financially and will allocate study leave to you for your exams at your first attempts.

Our firm is proud to have a proven track record of successfully supporting and assisting trainees in passing their professional qualifications.

You start learning on day one, with a full training programme introducing you to the PwC ethos and methodology as well as training with all of the computer software that the firm utilises. In order to ensure that our people receive the best training possible, we work very closely with other PwC firms within Europe and  send our people to appropriate training programmes that are available within the network.

Studying towards a professional qualification

As an accredited Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) training firm, you will register as a student member of one of these professional bodies and encouraged to join a training scheme, at the local college or distance learning, under which they study with external tutors for the examinations of the professional body.

ACCA - The ACCA examinations comprise up to 14 examinations. We encourage students to sit their examinations in June and December. Details of the ACCA examinations and registration can be found on

ICAEW - The ACA examinations comprise up to 15 examinations. We encourage students to sit their examinations in June, September and December.

The number of examinations you will sit will be dependent on the relevance of your degree and therefore the number of exemptions you qualify for. We will provide study support to help you achieve your professional qualification whichever professional body you chose.

Appraising performance and continued development

We ensure that you are constantly aware of your progress and have the opportunity to develop your capabilities and potential. You will then be appointed a councillor who will assist you with your development and at least once a year formally reviews your contribution and performance during your appraisal meeting. This is an opportunity for open and positive two-way communication between you and your councillor. It is designed to identify your strengths as well as identify any areas where performance may need to be enhanced.

In addition, you will receive on-going and constructive feedback on your client assignments through performance appraisal discussions with your managers and in-charges.

What type of degree to I need to join PwC?

You should be aiming to achieve a 2.1 or better in your chosen degree. The professional examinations are very demanding and candidates who do not achieve a high degree grade will struggle.

Does my degree need to be in accountancy?

No. Whilst the elements of a relevant degree will assist you in your studies, any suitable academic subject is acceptable.

How do I qualify as a Chartered Certified Accountant?

You will join us on a training contract during which time you will study for your professional examinations as a student member of the ACCA, whilst gaining valuable on the job experience.

PwC, Gibraltar, is a registered training centre with the ACCA.

What study support will I get during my training contract?

We pay for your student registration, examination fees, text books and tuition costs for your first attempt at each stage of the examinations. We will also give you paid study leave.


How will you help me develop my working skills?

The PwC methodology is about working in teams, in which more senior, experienced members of team coach the junior team members, to assist them in their understanding of their assigned work and helping them achieve the objectives set for them.

When should I apply?
