Our Consulting practice is focused on results, supporting our clients with fast track, profitable growth. We use our understanding of how business works and a knowledge of how the right technology in the right place can create competitive advantage.
Our clients might want us to help them enter new markets; address the challenges created by organisational change; or draw up a sustainability strategy that aligns their commercial objectives with broader environmental and social concerns. Our clients range from household names across a diverse range of industries, everyone from big-name broadcasters and high-street banks, to multinational telecoms operators and energy companies.
You’ll get to work closely with the best in industry, finance and government in the UK and abroad, bringing fresh insights and motivation to the problems they face.
You’ll help clients look at things in new ways, make suggestions and change things when needed. And as every client is different, the work is really varied and projects can last from a few days to a few years. Our consultants have the opportunity to work on internal projects too. Amongst other things, they keep us up to speed with the latest business developments and provide the systems that support the complex work we do.
We help some of the world’s most significant organisations transform their business. From improving the way they operate, accelerating their growth and reducing their costs, managing risk to developing their talent, we focus on their agendas and the big issues they need to deal with, both today and in the future.
You’ll build core skills on a market‑leading programme where you'll have the opportunity to experience a broad range of what we do, across different industries. You'll have the opportunity to learn about our different consulting business areas and work directly with clients which will help you decide where you might want to specialise within core Consulting.

PwC will provide you with support all the way. You’ll earn a competitive salary, benefit from our excellent support networks and have the opportunity to continually progress your career.

You’ll typically find yourself working as part of a team of anything from 2 to 30 people or more, working on projects that can be based anywhere from the UK to the USA, or Middle East to Africa. Our Client projects are resourced Nationally, so travelling and living away from home will be required. When you are not on a project you are expected to be based out of your home office.
You’ll spend a lot of time with clients at their base locations dealing with issues as they arise, and gaining valuable exposure to different types of projects, internal and external, and diverse industries.
