Becoming Advisors at PwC

A group of Year 12 Business students had the opportunity to spend the day at the Newcastle offices of PwC (Pricewaterhouse Coopers), the largest professional services firm in the UK and one of the top four worldwide. Students posed as a team of PwC advisors for a client who asked for support to solve a problem they’re currently facing. Students had to work together to prepare a presentation outlining how they would support their client. They pitched their presentation to a PwC panel who offered feedback, both in terms of their proposal and their delivery. The students covered a range of key skills throughout the day and were able to hear about the day-to-day life of the workers there. The team at PwC were so welcoming and a tour of the offices really provided an opportunity for students to see what it could be like to work at such a prestigious firm!
