The PwC Deal
No matter which area of the business you choose to join, all routes offer the same deal. The opportunity to grow as an individual, to meet new people, and build lasting relationships that will stay with you for life. Your hard work will be rewarded with a competitive salary and a personally tailored benefits package.

Graduate programme
Our graduate training programme is underpinned by a development framework that broadens and deepens your knowledge. You'll learn from hands-on coaching and an outstanding variety of work, picking up business, personal and technical skills you can use across the network, and throughout your career

Cyber Security
We help our clients with detailed data and technical analysis, as well as advise senior management and boards in shaping a broader strategic response to cyber risk. Our specialists help clients reduce their exposure to cyber threats, improve their defences and respond to cyber incidents. We also help our clients address the legal issues around breaches, data protection and privacy, and implement a culture and environment where people understand how to behave securely and do the right thing.

It's a vast and complex field that involves everything from cyber security strategy and technical design, to implementing effective security solutions, creating security processes with human behaviour in mind and responding to cyber incidents and breaches.

Network Information Security (NIS)
PwC is driving major change across information and cyber security by building a centralized model to provide security services across the entire member firm network.

Mandated at the network level, Network Information Security (NIS) operates outside Information Technology (IT) and is responsible for this major program initiative, from definition of the security strategy to execution of the global Cyber Readiness Program, moving from local to global services.

Our mission is to identify, control and reduce the attack surface across the member firm network while increasing our adversaries’ cost of attack.

In order to deliver the Cyber Readiness Program the NIS team is structured into the following Pillars:
  • Information Security Risk and Compliance (ISRC)
  • Chief Information Security Office (CISO)
  • Security Architecture, Engineering, Innovation and Transformation (SAEIT)
  • Cyber Security Services
  • Strategy and Alliances
  • Chief of Staff
NIS are building the first global cyber security function at PwC. Our mission protects 223,000 PwC members across 157 member firms worldwide as well as our global clients.

If you are seeking an exciting career with the scope to grow your security skills through major change on a global scale, then NIS will empower you to do so.

What you need to get in
  • You'll need to have or be on course for a 2.1 degree or above in a Technology related discipline e.g. Computer Science, Software Engineering, Maths, Physics, Computer Forensics or Artificial Intelligence or relevant work experience.
  • In addition to the above, we will also consider candidates with a 2.2 undergraduate degree coupled with a Masters in a STEM related degree such as Computing, Software Engineering, Maths, Physics and Engineering disciplines
Outstanding potential takes many forms and academic success is just one measure. That's why we have our 'Outstanding Achievement' entry route - it's an innovative way we're able to support applications from people who may not have met the academic requirements we're looking for, but have excelled in something else.

Do you need sponsorship to work in the UK?
Under the Home Office Points Based System', PwC holds a sponsor licence and can sponsor eligible applicants under the Tier 2 Skilled Worker category.

Eligibility for a Tier 2 Certificate of Sponsorship ("CoS") will be assessed by the Home Office with reference to the following:
  • Job role
  • Salary
  • English language
  • Maintenance.
The minimum requirements for each role are set out in the Home Office Immigration Standard Occupation Classification ("SOC") codes and this includes minimum salary requirements.

For this role PwC cannot sponsor under the Tier 2 Skilled Worker category because the Home Office eligibility requirements cannot be met.

We know that the skills and experiences you develop with us will stay with you throughout your career. So join PwC. We'll help you reach your full potential.

Take the opportunity of a lifetime.
