Digital Audit will give you the right blend of technology expertise with a real understanding of how technology relates to business. Digital Audit is a specialist team within our Audit practice that combines a mix of technology, data, business and accounting expertise to how we audit clients across all industries. We're constantly investing in audit technology and the skills of our people to keep up with the rapid pace of change and to deliver trust that is deeper, broader, and more forward-looking. There are two sides to Digital Audit : Auditing Digital : You'll be Auditing our client's technology to give them assurance that security and controls are in place.

Programme

Our graduate training programme is underpinned by a development framework that broadens and deepens your knowledge. You'll learn from hands-on coaching and an outstanding variety of work, picking up business, personal and technical skills you can use across the network, and throughout your career.

What you'll do

Our Digital Audit programme will give you a unique opportunity to focus on the technology aspect of the Audit. As a Digital Audit technology graduate, you'll develop deep technology and data skills through a structured training programme. You'll have the opportunity to work with a variety of clients, industries and technologies. You'll be hands-on straight away, working at client sites or virtually from one of our PwC offices. You'll need to be a people person, tenacious and resilient. You'll have exposure to contacts such as financial controllers, heads of IT or finance directors to understand and test IT systems and controls. You'll be checking IT systems to ensure they're appropriately controlled by management and to check that data produced is accurate, highlighting and questioning any differences. Above all, your work is client focused, often requiring working longer hours to meet the needs of the client. It's hard work but rewarding.

You'll follow a structured technical training curriculum which will allow you to develop the deeper technical and data skills required as a technology auditor. What you get out of it is the opportunity to build the skills and experience that can open many doors to you, taking your career in whatever direction you choose. This programme does not offer the ACA qualification. If you're interested in studying for your ACA, please refer back to the Audit homepage on the student careers website and look under our Digital Audit page for more information on the pathway which has a more financial focus and includes the opportunity to study towards the Chartered Accountant (ACA) qualification.

What you'll need

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.

When to apply

Although there is no application deadline, each year we have only a small number of Graduate roles available. We therefore advise applying early, but please be prepared for a short wait in processing your application at each stage of our process while we consider your application alongside others.
