Our Digital Platforms Practice

PwC has formed a world-leading digital practice to help our clients define the next generation of banking. Leveraging our heritage in financial services, plus our experience at the forefront of digital banking today, we bring a unique perspective on how to turn new and emerging technology into cut-through customer propositions, and help tomorrow's leaders to build or recalibrate business models for success.

PwC has unique assets to help clients get ahead in this new age of banking. These solutions give our clients access to premade digital platforms, ecosystems and business model blueprints, so that they don't have to start from scratch. This not only helps clients to accelerate digital transformation, but also gives leaders confidence that they are steering their business and business culture in the right direction to remain successful in the future.

To support this rapid growth we are looking for people who enjoy the excitement of shaping new ideas and working as part of multi-disciplinary teams on complex challenges, where each project is likely to be different to the last. We are looking for candidates with the passion and commitment, intellect and experience that can enable our clients' success in the intensely competitive economic environment of the digital age.
