What you'll do

Deals offers a two year graduate rotation program called ‘Deals NextGen’. We acknowledge that graduates of today are looking for broader experience and as a result, we have designed Deals NextGen to equip graduates with a global skillset that is agile in multiple environments.

New graduates will be aligned to a home team and will experience a three month structured rotation in their first year into another service team. In their second year, experiences will be more fluid and bespoke based on interests, career development goals and business needs.

Training & Development

Graduates entering Deals will take part in our Deals NextGen rotation. This is a 2 year program which sets you up in a 'home base' team where you'll commence building the core skillsets you'll need to succeed. There's also a 3 month structured rotation where participants leave their home-base teams to link with other service teams. As the program progresses into year 2, the learning you receive will become more tailored to your personal interests and developmental goals. During the course of the program, NextGen Blitz week is also held. This series of events allows graduates across all offices to come together to learn, connect and network.

PwC's learning philosophy is very much based on the 70:20:10 approach and the same applies here to how our Deals program has been created.

70% - Learn from doing - Participants will work with clients, experiencing their issues and working with them to solve real business problems.

20% - Learn from others - Graduates will regularly receive and discuss feedback on their work, allowing them to learn, develop and grow.

10% - Formal learning - Educational classroom based activities will be undertaken to provide firm wide learning opportunities and Deals specific opportunities.

In addition, Deals supports the gaining of CA (Chartered Accountant) and CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) qualifications. Assistance will be provided to individuals wishing to seek these qualifications, however this may vary depending on the specific requirements of the team.

FAQs

How is my home-base team decided?

The campus recruitment team and the Deals business will decide which home-base team a NextGen participant belongs to based on their competency, skill, experience, development goals and aspirations

How much time do I spend with my home-base team?

NextGen participants will spend 60-70% of their first 2 years aligned to a specific team - known as the home-base team. For the remaining 30-40%, NextGen participants will have the opportunity to spend time in other teams.

How is my rotation decided?

The Resource Manager, HCRM and business will work with each NextGen participant to determine which team they will rotate into. This will be based on individual interests and business needs. If you do not get rotated into the team of choice- you will still have the opportunity to rotate in year 2.

What happens at the end of year 1 of the program?

Agility experiences in year 2 will be more fluid and bespoke, based on individual interests & development goals, and business needs. In conjunction with the Deals Resource Manager, HCRM, the relevant team and the NextGen participant, a decision will be made as to whether the individual will return to their home-base or complete another rotation.

What happens at the end of the 2 year rotation program?

At the end of the 2 year rotation program, NextGen participants will join their home-base team pending that they have satisfied KPI’s and their performance has been deemed satisfactory.
