Course Info
Careers Graduate opportunities PwC has consistently been voted Best Graduate Employer in The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers survey. The vast majority of finalists on Flying Start programmes with PwC have received a job offer at the company after graduation, often becoming fully-qualified ICAEW Chartered Accountants just over a year after graduation. Graduates of Flying Start programmes have also moved into non-accounting roles at PwC. There is no obligation (on the part of the student or PwC) to progress to a role at PwC following completion of the course. Career support PwC will provide each student with a career coach, who will guide the student through PwC’s annual performance management process. Prior to joining PwC for their first work placement, students will be allocated a named 'buddy' who will help induct them into the firm. A wealth of careers support is also available through both Queen Mary and the School of Business and Management.
