I found the PwC Ignite Programme advertised on Linkedin and applied hoping that I would gain a network of driven work colleagues and further develop my skills in the corporate world. The Ignite experience has met and even surpassed my expectations so far. Working towards my Salesforce Platform App Builder certification, I’ve had access to the best training and support platforms and, most importantly, I enjoy being part of an inclusive and diverse workplace culture.
Prior to joining the Ignite programme, I was working as a Sales and Marketing Manager in a small-to medium-business, and had the most basic understanding of technology you can imagine. But, after two years there, I decided it was time for me to follow my interest in corporate business and be exposed to a more process-driven and structured environment.
I felt extremely welcomed at PwC from the outset. It was a little strange coming onboard amidst a pandemic and having to do my induction and learning all online without actually meeting my team face-to-face, but PwC made it a very smooth transition with constant support.
My teammates are definitely my champions at PwC. It’s made a huge difference starting with others in the Ignite programme and knowing you’re all there for each other. We talk through challenges, walk each other through problems to find a solution, and we also have fun along the way.
