You start learning on day one, with a two week training programme introducing you to the PwC ethos and methodology as well as training with the computer software that the firm utilises.
We ensure that you are constantly aware of your progress and have the opportunity to develop your capabilities and potential. Your contribution and performance will be formally reviewed at least annually in an appraisal meeting with your assigned councillor.
This is an opportunity for open and positive two-way communication between you and your manager. 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 ongoing and constructive feedback on your client assignments through performance appraisal discussions with your manager.
Graduates will become student members of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) or the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) and are 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. The examinations are taken in June and December. Details of the ACCA examinations and registration can be found on www.accaglobal.com
ICAEW - The ACA qualification consists of 15 examinations. The examinations are held four times a year in March, June, September and December.
The amount of examinations you will sit will be dependant 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.
