Our Consulting practice is focused on results, supporting our clients in solving important problems so that they can transform their business. 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’ needs are what lead our thinking and drive our ambition. Our goal is to be our clients first choice on the issues that matter most because we deliver outcomes that matter. Clients might want us to help them manage disruption and transform their business to adapt in an ever changing world, or draw up a sustainability strategy that aligns their commercial objectives with broader environmental and social concerns.
We work with clients across the Financial Services, Government and Health Industries and the Private Sector and include household names from Government Departments, NHS Trusts, retailers, banks, multinational telecoms operators and energy companies.
You’ll get to work closely with the best in industry, finance and Government in the UK and collaborate with clients and colleagues globally, bringing fresh insights and motivation to the problems they face.
Transformation is in our DNA. Our unique combination of strategy, technology and
management consulting expertise positions us as the go-to specialists for strategy-led, digitally-enabled, results-driven transformation programmes.
Through transformation we improve the way our clients operate; manage costs; better align people, process and technology initiatives; support business growth to maintain or improve competitive edge. In doing so, we focus on their strategic objectives and the big issues they need to deal with, both today and in the future.
You can choose to start in Management Consulting, where you’ll develop your core consulting and technical skills and gain a breadth of experience through a variety of roles, either across industries or engagements. Our Consulting practice has been in the top three The Times Top 100 Graduate Employer of Choice for Consulting, for the past seven consecutive years.

Join us, and like hundreds of consultants who have joined the programme previously you too can enjoy a successful career with us at PwC.
Our Summer Internships offer high calibre students the opportunity to experience work and life at PwC, and gain a valuable insight into our business and culture. You’ll work alongside graduate trainees and experienced professionals on live and interesting client projects. You will be doing real work on real clients so be prepared to get stuck in.
What you’ll do
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 available to be based out of your home office.
You’ll spend a lot of time working with clients both virtually and at their base locations dealing with issues as they arise, and gaining valuable exposure to different types of projects and diverse industries. Your role may be to carry out detailed analysis, helping support the recommendations that transform our clients’ businesses.
You’ll also have the opportunity to work on strategically important internal roles and secondment opportunities within the firm, where you can gain specialist knowledge from within the network. These experiences, combined with tailored training covering Consulting skills, emerging digital tools and technology, will equip you with the capabilities to really make a difference.
The client and internal roles that you will undertake during your time on the programme will vary depending on the specific project goal. You can expect to have the opportunity to demonstrate and develop all the core skills that you will learn as part of the induction training. For example, but not limited to:
Collecting, analysing and presenting data
Facilitating client workshops, presenting findings
Supporting project management activity
World class meeting facilitation, time management and organisational skills
Commercial management and engagement economics
Thought leadership/ research
Contributions to communities with their asset development and efforts to drive up diversity inclusion and engagement amongst teams
You’ll have the opportunity to put these skills into practice through various roles focussed on key areas of change.
