What's the recruitment process?

Our process has never been easier! Simply:

  1. Apply online and complete the application form (Guess what? You don’t need a CV)

  2. Complete an online aptitude test

  3. Record a video interview

  4. Attend an assessment centre (Canvas - PwC’s Career Jam)

Once you complete the process, offers will be issued from your local recruiter.

 

At PwC, Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) is an important part of everything we do. As part of this commitment, we want to remove any conscious or unconscious bias from impacting the recruitment process. Therefore, we no longer require you to upload a CV or resume as part of the application process. We care about your potential and ability, and look for people whose purpose and passions align with our values. We hope this will help create a more equitable, fair and diverse application experience for you.

Academic transcripts will be requested upon successfully reaching the final stage of assessment to verify your degree.

When will the Assessment Centre Days be held?

Career Jam is the final step in the application process. You’ll need to attend a Career Jam (assessment centre) to be eligible to receive an offer of employment. This is to ensure that all applicants are assessed in a fair and equitable manner. If you’re unable to make it to a Career Jam (for example, if you’re overseas for extended periods of time), we will not be able to progress your application.

  • Assessment centres commence 27th August onwards
