Job description

Our Consulting practice is focused on results, supporting our clients with fast track, profitable growth. We use our understanding of how business works and a knowledge of how the right technology in the right place can create competitive advantage.

Our clients might want us to help them enter new markets; address the challenges created by organisational change; or draw up a sustainability strategy that aligns their commercial objectives with broader environmental and social concerns. Our clients range from household names across a diverse range of industries, everyone from big-name broadcasters and high-street banks, to multinational telecoms operators and energy companies.

You'll get to work closely with the best in industry, finance and government in the UK and abroad, bringing fresh insights and motivation to the problems they face.


Strategy& is our Strategy Consulting practice. You'll work on interesting and varied assignments - from helping a company identify attractive new markets, advising a private equity client on game-changing investments, to supporting industry leaders solve their toughest corporate and mergers and acquisitions challenges.

We organise ourselves in two market-winning teams - Corporate Strategy and Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) Strategy. We work together to bring the best to our clients, and we offer a unique, powerful, and distinctive combination of capabilities that allows us to develop and deliver world-class strategies.

As a graduate you'll be aligned to one of our two teams, but occasionally you'll experience working in both as we often resource projects together, providing you the opportunity to transfer your skills across our Strategy& practice.

Our Summer Internships offer high calibre students the opportunity to experience work and life at PwC, and gain a valuable insight into our business and culture. You'll work alongside graduate trainees and experienced professionals on live and interesting client projects. You will be doing real work on real clients so be prepared to get stuck in.

What you'll do
As an Associate you'll work with your team to create new approaches to difficult problems, bringing a new perspective compared to your seniors. Depending on the project, you may be required to develop and deliver presentations, analyse large quantities of data, conduct interviews with subject matter experts, or more. Every day will bring about new opportunities and challenges, and no two projects are the same.

To be eligible for the programme you'll need to be:
  • In your penultimate year of study or in your final year of study with a one year postgraduate degree place confirmed
  • Be on track/ or have achieved a 2.1 in your undergraduate degree
  • Have the right visa eligibility to start a graduate programme in September 2022 or Spring 2023
How to apply
Complete an online application form and submit a cover letter and CV.

We'd recommend you make an 'open' application to both teams. However, if you have a preference and you'd like to focus on joining a particular team, you'll have the opportunity to state this on our application.

Do you need a work permit?
