The first time we went to the PwC classroom at the Birmingham branch, the group were welcomed with a helpful greeting allowing the students to socialise with the other students from various schools as they conversed about what they expected from this experience. When the presentations began the students were introduced by a Senior Member of the PwC firm who guided the group through what the firm stands for and the principles they are built upon; excellence, teamwork and leadership.
The group also got to hear from various staff members who varied from different sectors of the firm, from Senior Partners, Tax Consultants, HR staff and to Graduates and students have secured a PwC apprenticeship scheme! They all spoke to the group about potential career paths and what it is like to be a part of the PwC family, this gave the students hope that there is always a suitable path route that they can follow regardless if they choose if the academic route or if they can secure the apprenticeship route.
