About the role
Our Flexible Talent Network (FTN) is one way we can support flexible working and provide mutual benefits – for you and for PwC.
One way of doing this is to provide you with a way you can work to a timetable that suits you. Our Flexible Talent Network programme provides a great way for you to work for part of the year, and use the rest of the year for other things that matter to you.
Everyone’s lives are different. Maybe you have a start-up business that only takes up some of your time, or perhaps you volunteer and want to get paid work around volunteering? Or you could be a parent or carer taking time-out to support your family? Or are you semi-retired but still want to supplement your income? There are all sorts of reasons why a traditional working pattern isn’t quite right for you and this is why our Flexible Talent Network could be just what you were looking for.
