Deferred entry graduate programme with PwC for Teach First participants
If you want to spend two years teaching on the Teach First Leadership Development Programme before working for PwC then you can apply to Teach First and PwC at the same time but defer your entry to us. Not only will schools and pupils benefit from your enthusiasm and expertise, you’ll also develop a host of skills with Teach First that you can bring to the business world. From leadership and communication, to planning and problem-solving.
Please note that PwC may share your personal data with Teach First for the purposes of Teach First’s oversight, management and evaluation of the Summer Projects programme. By applying to this vacancy you are agreeing to sharing your information with Teach First.
Using complex financial and statistical theories to calculate the likelihood of events - anything from a natural disaster to a wholesale IT system failure - you'll work out what that means financially for clients. It's highly technical work and it's made all the more challenging by the fact that you'll have to present your complex findings in simple, easy to understand ways. There are two business areas you can choose from, Actuarial Services and Actuarial People and Organisations, both are among the leading actuarial practices in the UK.
What you'll gain
You'll study with the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries. Once, you've completed the exams, you'll then be fully qualified and a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries.
What you need to get in
At PwC we no longer use UCAS tariff as an assessment tool for the majority of our undergraduate and graduate opportunities. However, the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries require you to have:
- Minimum Grade C in A Level mathematics or equivalent*
- A second A Level in any subject at a minimum Grade C
* Depending on your degree subject this A level requirement may be dropped.
In addition to this UCAS requirement, PwC also require you to be:
- Applying for or undertaking the Teach First Leadership Development Programme; and
- On target for a 2.1 in any degree discipline
If you are unable to meet these UCAS requirements, we won't be able to consider you for a role as an Actuary. Therefore, you may want to consider other programmes on offer which don't have a UCAS tariff requirement.
