Job Description

Spend an action-packed, paid week in one of our offices during your summer holiday – meeting our people, experiencing the work we do and making new friends.

Technology is changing the way we work, and we’re at the forefront – exploring new technologies and trends as they emerge. From Artificial Intelligence to Augmented Reality and 3D Printing to Drones, we’re using technology to help our clients work better and prepare for the future. On this programme, you’ll take part in interactive and engaging workshops, led by our Technology experts to explore what Digital means to us.

During the Digital Insight Week we’ll welcome you with a day’s training so you can meet and collaborate with other students on the programme, and staff at PwC. You’ll participate in a range of interactive workshops delivered by our tech teams, to help you gain a good understanding of how we’re embracing the digital transformation and what area of technology interests you most. You’ll have the opportunity to gain lots of valuable skills, build your network and learn more about our fully funded Flying Start Technology Degree Apprenticeship programmes, which are available at the University of Birmingham, Queen's University Belfast, University of Edinburgh and University of Leeds. Our recruitment team and technology professionals will also help you to get several steps ahead with your preparation for an application to one of our Flying Start Technology Degree Apprenticeships.
