Corporate Finance – we offer a full range of financial advisory services, from acquisitions and disposals for corporate and private equity clients, to advice on infrastructure, energy and public sector projects
Business Restructuring Services – we advise under-performing UK and European companies on restructuring, refinancing, accelerated mergers and acquisitions and insolvency – finding the best way forward for the business and its stakeholders
Forensic Services – we help our clients to prepare for, respond to and emerge stronger from a wide range of business risks and issues. These include major public enquiries, rogue trader or bribery allegations, and commercial and transactional disputes across all industry sectors.
What you’ll do:
During this three-day paid placement you’ll work closely with a variety of people at all grades to learn what it’s like to work at PwC, experiencing first hand the nature of the work that we do. You’ll choose which office you’d like to come to and which area of the business you’re interested in. You’ll spend time with lots of different people, from graduates to senior leaders, attending meetings and working with our clients and teams to get real exposure to our business. You should also have done plenty of research into the area of PwC you’d like to join. We strongly advise you to apply for the business area and office that interests you the most as any subsequent offers will be made for this area only.

You’ll need to have or be on course for a 2.1 degree or above in any subject. We determine whether you’re on course for a 2.1 based on the grades you achieved in your last completed year of academic study.
