Career Launch Work Experience
Join us in our Belfast or Manchester offices to find out what it’s like to work at PwC as part of our in-person, paid work experience programme.
Applications for our summer 2023 Career Launch Work Experience programme are now open.
Our Career Launch Work Experience programme for Year 12 (Year 13 in Northern Ireland) is running from 7 – 11 August 2023. Taking place in our Belfast and Manchester offices, you’ll have the opportunity to network with current and past students on our programmes, participate in interactive skills sessions, experience what it’s like to work in one of our business areas, and collaborate on group projects.
Impress us enough during the week, and any subsequent application you make for one of our School and College Leaver or Flying Start degree programmes, could be fast tracked.
We’ll pay you a salary, cover the cost of your travel and provide you with lunch and a PwC laptop for the week.
Our top tips for landing a work experience placement
Getting work experience with a well known company can be quite competitive. Here’s four top tips that will help give you an edge during your application.
- Tailor your communication. If you are applying for more than one work experience position, ensure that each of your applications is unique. Bonus points if you also shuffle your CV and experience to best suit the role.
- Make the most of limited experience. Nobody has lots of skills or experience at the beginning of their career, so make the most of what you have done, and look for innovative ways to show learnings from any outside-of-school activities or work.
- Be proactive and reach out to companies directly. If you are unsure about a specific requirement, then ask a question.
- You could look to do some volunteer work, or a virtual work experience, to help boost your skills and make your application look even stronger.
