School and College leaver programme
A position on our School and College Leaver programme is one of the best ways to kickstart your career with PwC. All of our apprenticeships are designed to help you develop your business skills through real client work, while also completing formal training and studying towards qualifications to give you a head start in your career. PwC will provide you with support all the way. You’ll earn a competitive salary, benefit from our excellent support networks and have the opportunity to continually progress your career. Just like our graduate joiners, you’ll work on varied and challenging client and internal projects, which make a real difference to the world of business. You’ll be coached by our people, who are experts in their field, and at the same time, thanks to our study support, you won’t need to worry about paying for course and exam fees, textbooks or revision materials.
Your knowledge will help high-profile businesses, entrepreneurs and family businesses understand complex rules and make informed decisions with significant impacts. You'll also help governments ensure the efficient operation of tax systems, and use your insight to solve long-term problems. You'll be part of a business that's committed to proactively engaging with the tax policy debate and focused on leading views and new ideas.
Our tax practice has transformed our Tax Compliance proposition and delivery model to combine our three service streams; Corporate, Personal and Global Mobility compliance.
This role is for Compliance Services - Global Mobility.
Specifically, you will have the opportunity to work with our high profile clients, whether on, individual, partnership, trust or expatriate tax returns.
What you will do
Work with our clients, taxpayers and overseas PwC offices to gather information required for tax calculations and manipulate the data as needed.
Prepare tax calculations ensuring all income is reported and all applicable tax reliefs / deductions are claimed; researching any complex points; liaising with the client / taxpayer to request additional information / clarify areas of uncertainty; and make any necessary amendments based on instruction from the reviewer, client portfolio leader, client or taxpayer.
Flag opportunities for clients to optimise tax savings, increase compliance with regulations, and improve data reporting.
What you will gain
As part of the programme you will undertake a structured, self-directed learning programme gaining knowledge of the industry and market, technical skills, self-development, self- awareness, leadership skills, and commercial awareness.
You will enjoy plenty of practical, on-the-job training while studying for the Association of Taxation Technicians (ATT) professional qualification. The great thing is, by the time you complete your exams, you will have lots of valuable experience to build on. After completion of the ATT, there may be the opportunity to pursue further professional qualifications such as the CTA qualification with the Chartered Institute of Taxation.
What you need to get in
You'll need to have or be on course for 96 UCAS tariff* (or equivalent)
You'll need to have a Grade C or above in GCSE English Language and Mathematics (or equivalent)
*from up to three A Levels (excluding General Studies) or equivalent, taken in the same academic year and achieved at first sitting
