PwC audit the greatest number of FTSE 100 companies, as well as thousands of smaller organisations, tailoring our approach to each and every one. Our purpose is to build trust in society. We provide decision-makers with information they can trust – getting to grips with every aspect of our clients’ activities and then advising them on whether it is sustainable, profitable and legal. Its critical work that underpins investor confidence, adds real value to our clients’ businesses and develops the market economy.

Our clients are major corporations in the UK and across Europe, including many of the 250 largest companies in the world.
About the Role
As financial markets became ever-more sophisticated, so do the strategies and financial instruments utilised by corporations. Keeping pace with these advances, you’ll help leading businesses to manage the risks associated with treasury and commodity transactions and market exposures.
As a PwC employee you will need to demonstrate the skills and behaviours that support us in delivering our business strategy. This is important to the work we do for our business, and our clients. These skills and behaviours make up our global leadership framework, ‘The PwC Professional’.
Reporting directly to a Senior Manager, Director or Partner, you'll support one of two aspects of our work. The first is to help handle the growing portfolio of clients and ad hoc projects, which include due diligence, organisational reviews and benchmarking reviews. The second is to help with the development and commercialisation of a new business modelling and optimisation tool that will help our clients be more certain that they are making the right business decisions in complex situations.
