Careers in Canberra

Create a career path that comes with both opportunity and lifestyle.

Build a next generation government

We live in such exciting technology enabled times. What would living in Australia be like if the government caught up? 

At PwC Australia, we're passionate about driving this change. But, we need your help to create our 21st Century Government. This means we're hiring Consultants with diverse skill sets across Technology, Operations and Human Resources to work on some of the biggest projects attempted in the public sector. 

What might this future look like? Think working smarter, not harder. A government with a clear mission, self service technology and effective ways of harnessing data. They'll be able to react to our life events without being prompted.

Our people on making the move to Canberra

"We have grown substantially, but we all have common roots and everyone knows each other. Everyone can put a name to a face - it sounds corny, but it really is like a mini family." - Rahul Verma, Director in Risk Assurance.

"I love the fact that Canberra is big enough in that it has everything you need, yet it is so much easier to live here than Sydney or Melbourne." - Rob Tyson, Director in Economics & Policy. 

"I really noticed the positive difference in terms of lifestyle. There's no traffic and commutes are easy. There's no hassle involved in going out and taking advantage of different hubs or surrounding suburbs. " - Emilia Christoforou, Manager in Operations.
