What you will be doing

Who we are

We use technical and business knowledge to solve our clients’ problems. And because we offer so many different technology services we need people with different experiences to help us deliver them effectively. Digital is the new normal, transforming how we work and live.

At PwC, as we focus on future innovations, we’re investing in the best and most diverse workforce of today and tomorrow. We’re pushing forward with the use of technology within our own business – enabling our people to work more efficiently and collaborate more easily. All this is part of our commitment to put technology at the centre of our strategy as we continue to help our clients navigate the future digital landscape.

Deals Insights and Analytics – Financial Modelling

We are one of the world’s largest and most successful deal analytics and modelling practices. Sitting at the heart of PwC’s +$10bn global deals business, we work with the world’s largest investors on their most complex transactions and restructurings.

Our purpose is to support the increasingly sophisticated client demand for advanced modelling and data-driven insights to underpin their critical investment decisions. We deliver this with:

• A range of products and services that deliver transformational insights to our clients throughout the deal cycle;

• Significant investments in cutting edge technologies and platforms

• A world class and truly diverse team with a range of data science, technology, commercial, financial and industry backgrounds

For the right candidate, this is an amazing opportunity to build a career in an environment that fosters a creative and entrepreneurial spirit, with the unrivalled security, personal development, client access and investment that PwC brings.

What you'll do

Your main area of focus will be Financial Modelling which is used by our clients to support almost every critical business decision. You’ll initially focus on reviewing client financial models, moving onto a broader range of modelling projects when you are more experienced and progressing with your accountancy studies. Through this experience you’ll become an advisor to our clients, translating and communicating your analysis to help answer the critical commercial questions.

As part of this team you will help design and deliver truly game changing analysis and insights to meet a range of business needs. For example:

• Providing critical independent model review services to increase investor confidence

• Improving clarity and transparency for investors and finance providers with KPI-driven analytics that provide critical insight into key operational, commercial and financing aspects

• Adding credibility to the business growth story with insightful analysis of historic performance translated into a robust articulation of cash and profit dynamics to strengthen our clients understanding

What you will have

• You’ll be technically-minded, driven by solving complex problems, and you get a kick out of explaining how you do it. You’ll be working with some excellent analytical brains, but also varying stakeholders for our clients, and for this reason you will know how to explain the technical details to non-technical people.

• You’ll need a 2.1 degree or be on target to achieve a 2.1 degree in a STEM related subject (Science / Technology / Engineering / Mathematics) and demonstrate a passion for a career in technology and how organisations use it.

• 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.

What you will gain

On joining, you’ll study for the ICAEW Certificate in Finance, Accounting and Business (CFAB) with the option to later study towards your Chartered Accountant (ACA) qualification. This will be discussed with you during your graduate programme.

When to apply

Although there is no application deadline, each year we have only a small number of 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.

It clearly articulates what a career with PwC really looks and feels like and sets out what you can expect from your experience at the firm.

In return we ask that you’ll be eager to learn, with business awareness, intellectual and cultural curiosity and the ability to build strong relationships. You’ll be encouraged to work together, share knowledge and insights that foster innovation, drive impact and deliver quality to your clients.
