I need an adjustment for a disability. What do I do?

PwC recognises the benefits of diversity and is committed to increasing the diversity of our workforce, including the number of employees with a disability.

As part of our commitment to creating a culture of inclusion, if you have a disability we'll be happy to make reasonable adjustments to our processes for you.

When applying, you’ll be asked if you require any adjustments during our recruitment process, or if you anticipate needing any workplace adjustments to enable you to perform the role you're applying for. If so, we’ll be in touch to discuss your needs so that we can help you perform to the best of your ability.

What do you look for in a candidate?

As a Vacationer you’ll be assessed against the competencies of our global framework, the PwC Professional. This is how we define and encourage leadership at all levels - from Vacationer to Partner. Learn more about the framework and the skills we look for.

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.

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.
