School and College Leaver programme
A position on our School and college leaver programme is one of the best ways of jumping into a career with PwC early. You'll learn and develop the specialist skills our clients look for and value most and study towards a professional qualification, with support from us all the way.
The work is varied and includes investigating and analysing operational and financial risk, processes, systems and controls in order to make recommendations for improvement. Good communication, analytical skills and a strong eye for detail are therefore really important.
Accounting Services provides outsourced accounting services for large national, multinational and inbound clients across a multitude of situations. Working with a varied and prestigious portfolio of clients, Accounting Services provides an excellent opportunity for career development.
What you’ll do
Your responsibilities will include a range of tasks, however generally this will involve:
•Contributing to major proposals to help manage and grow the Accounting Services accounting compliance portfolio worldwide.
•The preparation of local and cross border client GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) statutory financial statements (SFS).
•Bookkeeping and preparation of periodic management accounts.
•Advising on statutory accounting compliance requirements.
•Advising on improvements to the SFS cycle i.e. the production, audit and filing of SFS.
•Attending group technical training meetings
•Participating in ad hoc projects
This gives you the opportunity to learn from different clients and develop your transferable skills
What you'll gain
You'll enjoy plenty of practical, on-the-job training while studying for a professional qualification with the Association of Taxation Technicians (ATT). This takes two years to complete and we'll give you study leave to go to college plus plenty of support, but you'll need to study in your own time too. The hard work will be worth it though when you pick up your qualification. And the great thing is, by the time you complete your exams, you'll have lots of valuable experience to build on.
