Information for parents & teachers

Tackling the PwC recruitment process can be daunting. And although we’ll be supporting your child or learner with information and feedback throughout the process, the best way that you can help is by offering general support and encouragement.

Right now, your child or learners are at a critical stage in their lives, with lots of options and opportunities available to them.

Do they want to go into further education? Do they want to go to university? Do they want to take some time out and have a gap year? Or explore opportunities for starting work now?

We understand that making important decisions about their future and submitting applications can be daunting. That’s why we think it’s important to support you with information about the full range of opportunities available, so that you can help your children or learners make the choice that’s right for them and give themselves the best possible chance of success.
 

 

What can you do to help?

Tackling the PwC recruitment process can be daunting. And although we’ll be supporting your child or learner with information and feedback throughout the process, the best way that you can help is by offering general support and encouragement.

During the recruitment process you can help by:

  • Encourage your child or learners to thoroughly research the different options and routes available and help them to work through the options available to decide on the best route for them. 
  • Encourage your child or learners to search our events list and attend a Career Day at school, sign-up for the job shadowing programme or attend the accounting workshop programme. These are all fantastic ways for them to find out more about us, the business and what we do. Click here to search our events.
  • You could offer to proofread their application – accuracy of all the information they provide is essential here, so a second pair of eyes could be useful.
     
  • Make sure your child or learners are familiar with our application process and what is required from them at each stage. 
  • Help them to research the skills we look for and brainstorm where and how they might already have demonstrated these - sports teams, part-time jobs or extra-curricular activities are just a few examples of everyday activities which they can talk about to show us they've got what we're looking for.
  • Help them prepare for their interview by working through the information in the ‘recruitment process’ section of our website. Help them understand the skills we look for and how they can demonstrate the skills we are looking for in the PwC Professional leadership framework. 
  • Help them prepare for the interview by preparing answers to questions they may be asked, questions they can ask themselves and how best to showcase what they can bring to the organisation.
     
  • Help them prepare for their first day at work by helping them feel comfortable about their travel arrangements and how they will get to the office. 
  • Ensure they have thought about what to wear during the interview.
  • Address any concerns and anxiety they may have.
