PWC Early Careers Event

PricewaterhouseCoopers (the second-largest professional services network in the world) is seeking to raise awareness of various early careers opportunities within their organisation among students of African Caribbean heritage, noting their underrepresentation on these programmes and in these environments nationally.
If you are, or know a Black student in years 11 & 12 who may be interested in doing an apprenticeship, going to university, or a combination of both, or perhaps are still unsure, and simply want to find out more about PwC, our event will help answer these questions by providing a glimpse into their different business areas on:
Thursday 22nd February 2024
16:00 – 17:30


Degree Apprenticeships
Degree apprenticeships are becoming increasingly popular options for students seeking to attend a top-tier university whilst gaining invaluable corporate training, without the financial burden of a student loan. The PwC Technology and Accounting Degree Schemes on offer could provide a particularly compelling option for them.
Each Flying Start university has different entry criteria. For technology, entry requirements range from AAA to BBB for the study first pathway in, Birmingham, Belfast, and London, or 112 UCAS points (96 for those from lower socio-economic backgrounds) for the Manchester work first pathway. Accounting admission criteria range from AAA to AAB.
Working as part of PwC’s world-class team, students will have the opportunity to work with high-profile clients whilst experiencing the full-time student lifestyle with integrated paid placements. As well as gaining a funded degree, there is also the possibility of securing a graduate job on completion.
This is an exceptional opportunity for students, especially those who are more likely to find access to these high-profile spaces more challenging, and who might have concerns around financing their tertiary education.
Schools can register and facilitate groups of students to attend this event (preferred). Alternatively, students can register to attend independently.


The event will help students gain a better understanding of various schemes and working in professional services, and they will be able to interact with current scheme members and senior Black PwC staff. In addition, the event will include hands-on, guided sessions with advice on the application process and personal statements.
