At PwC our Capital Project Services (CPS) team comprises a multi-disciplined range of

Our CPS team advises clients on the business issues relating to the delivery of capital

design, project controls and project and contract reviews.

If you enjoy working with high profile clients and would relish the chance to see the bigger
picture, then our CPS team at PwC will provide you with that opportunity. You’ll have the
opportunity to work on high-profile, national and international projects that will enable you to
reach your full potential.

The role requires significant flexibility & mobility, with national & international travel often
required.

If you’d like to know more about our people, their backgrounds and the sorts of projects that
they’re currently involved in, please take a look at some of our team profiles where you can
