Business Insight Week, Aberdeen, Summer 2020

Business Insight Week

Spend an action-packed, paid week in one of our offices during your summer holiday, and find out what it’s like to work at PwC and which skills you’ll need for a successful career in one of our teams.

If you currently attend a state school and meet our widening participation or social mobility criteria (see details below) then you may be eligible to apply for our Business Insight Week programme. If you don’t meet these criteria, then please have a look at our Accounting or Digital Insight Week programmes.

The Week

During your Business Insight Week, we’ll welcome you with a day’s training so you can meet other students on the programme and staff at PwC. You’ll set up your PwC laptop and find out more about what we do and we’ll help you prepare for the rest of your week before you get started with shadowing and workshops from your second day.

Throughout the week, you’ll have the opportunity to gain lots of valuable skills, build your network of professionals and explore your career options with PwC. Maybe you’re interested in doing an apprenticeship, you’re considering going to university, or you’re still not sure, and you simply want to find out more about PwC and which areas of business or technology interest you most. The Business Insight Week will help you to answer these questions by giving you an insight into our business areas, and you’ll hear from staff who have joined PwC through a range of pathways and programmes. The experiences that you gain should help you understand what we do at PwC, why we do it, and what area of the business will suit you best. You’ll see how we support household brands, governments, charities and global companies with everything from planning for the future, to how they can make the most of their technology and meet the challenges of the changing world of business.

Make the most of your summer, and take the opportunity to develop new skills, meet new people, and pave the way for a future career in professional services.
