One of the biggest highlights for me has been meeting such a great bunch of people at the Christchurch office, who are all willing to help each other out.
I was awarded the PwC Scholarship straight out of high school, which gave me the opportunity to join the firm two years down the track. In high school I always wanted to pursue management and go down that path, but after PwC came in to present to my school, I was inspired to apply for a Scholarship and further pursue an internship opportunity. The internship really sealed the deal and confirmed that PwC was for me. I was able to experience first-hand all the exciting things that go on within the firm and was given the opportunity to interact with recent Graduates all the way through to Partners.
One of the biggest highlights for me has been meeting such a great bunch of people at the Christchurch office, who are all willing to help each other out. Some other highlights included interacting with a range of different clients and learning about their business, having the opportunity to travel overseas and of course the end of year Christmas party.
I really enjoy interacting with clients and learning all about their business. It’s really nice to get out of the office and no client experience is ever the same. The people at PwC make the working environment that much better, whether it be work or social; everyone is willing to have a good chat or share their knowledge and help you out.
PwC are very supportive of your career and personal development. Everyone within the firm is willing to put in the hard yards and help get the job done as a team. We all take pride in the services we offer to our clients and the standards at which we perform.
Defying the typical accountant stereotype we do like to ‘play hard’. The culture at PwC is ‘work hard, play hard’. PwC also hold numerous social functions throughout the year, which gives you the opportunity to socialise with everyone in the office and have some fun outside of work.
I would tell a potential Grad or summer intern to take the opportunity. I underestimated how much of a platform PwC can provide to kick start my career. Communicate your career aspirations as PwC are more than happy to get in behind you and assist you in reaching them.
