Professional qualifications and career development
When you join us as a Graduate you’ll be part of our Graduate development programme from day one. You will spend your first day with other Graduates; learning how PwC supports you and your development to deliver our purpose and vision – defining what it means to be a PwC employee.
We’ll provide ongoing opportunities for you to develop your business skills as well as your personal and technical skills. You’ll also have a coach and buddy to support and guide you.
If you’re on the path to a professional qualification, we’re with you every step of the way. We’ll financially support you through your exams and help you prepare with study and exam leave. You’ll also have widespread support from mentors, managers and peers.
Leadership is a mindset at PwC, not a job title. To us ‘leadership’ is about being yourself, being courageous and being different. As a PwC professional you will have the opportunity to demonstrate and grow your leadership potential, learning life skills which will be valuable wherever your career takes you. You’ll be pleased to note that we also really embrace diversity and value the range of thinking this brings.
This online brochure will tell you everything you need to know about professional qualifications available to you at PwC. We encourage our people to continually upskill and will pay your fees for a range of professional qualifications, as well as providing time off to study.
What makes a great candidate?
So there’s no single answer to the question – “What makes a PwC person?” But if you’re someone with leadership skills or ability, who’s curious, fascinated by solving challenging problems and passionate about making a real difference in society, then there’s a place for you at PwC.
It’s not all about numbers
The diversity we bring to solving our client’s problems is central to what makes us the leading professional advisers in New Zealand.
We’re a team of business advisers, working alongside our clients to build long-lasting relationships that create value. We’re looking for motivated, energetic problem solvers who can help us be the best at what we do and also help our clients to be successful.
And it’s not just about academic achievement. You might not have gained the tertiary results you had hoped for but have shown you have the intellectual ability, drive and resilience to excel in our business in other ways. We’re also looking for diversity in our people and for people that stand out from the crowd – and that means great experiences and achievements both at university and in the outside world.
