Our Virtual Insight Week programme provides opportunities to gain lots of valuable skills and explore your career options with PwC. You may be interested in doing an apprenticeship, going to university, or a combination of both. Perhaps you’re still not sure, and you simply want to find out more about PwC and the different areas that you could join. Our Virtual Insight Week will help you answer these questions by giving you an insight into our different business areas, and you’ll also hear from our people who joined through a range of pathways and programmes.
Through our interactive sessions, you’ll get to experience our different business areas. Some of the technical skills sessions will be differentiated so that you’re able to select either a ‘beginner’ or ‘advanced’ level based on your individual knowledge or experience of a topic. You can also take part in a variety of skills sessions on topics such as wellbeing, resilience and personal values. These sessions will equip you with the skills and knowledge to help you succeed with a future application to PwC and beyond.
The programme will run virtually across five days. For the optimum experience, you’ll need a laptop or computer and internet connection to join the online sessions, but many sessions will also be accessible via a smartphone. The week will include both live and recorded sessions to offer you as much flexibility as possible and you’ll be able to choose which sessions you’d like to attend. If you don’t have a personal laptop or you’re worried about your internet connection, please still apply to the programme, and we may be able to provide support with access to the necessary equipment. We’ll be contacting all successful applicants regarding what support may be available after we have confirmed offers for the programme.
Monday 25 July – Friday 29 July 2022.
