Raising Aspirations – Digital Careers Talk with PwC - Price Waterhouse Coopers
We are pleased to announce the start of a partnership with PwC, who are the largest professional services network in the world and is one of the big four accounting firms, along with Deloitte, EY and KPMG.
PwC has over 24,000 employees working in the UK, with around 284,000 also working around the world in over 155 countries.
PwC are one of the UK’s largest recruiters of school leavers, undergraduates and graduates and we hope this partnership will forge future pathways within this global company for our students. The programme will help equip our students with the skills to help them fulfil their potential and achieve positive outcomes in their career of choice, whether at PwC or elsewhere.
A team of ten PwC associates visited our Year 12 and 13 IT students to talk about PwC and what they do as Digital Auditors. Garvin Gomez, a Senior Manager at PwC, introduced the company to students and spoke about his very relatable journey he undertook to get to the position where he is today.
Garvin also spoke about removing those barriers to access, telling our students to think big, to be ambitious and curious which are all traits of being an Active Citizen.
The ten associates then spent time with our students, answering any questions they had about their career pathways and journey into PwC. This gave our students an insight into different pathways the associates went through in order to work for PwC.
The next part of this exciting programme will offer the students the chance to visit one of their many offices in London. This will give our students an excellent opportunity to see what it’s like to work for one of the most renowned companies in the world.
