About the team
PwC Consulting helps organisations to work smarter and grow faster. With plans to treble its revenues over the next four years, Consulting is the fastest growing area of PwC. Part of the strategy to achieve this is to bring in experienced hires to help our clients meet the challenges they are facing in the Financial Services (FS) sector.
