The Degree Apprenticeship Programme provides the opportunity to earn a competitive salary and obtain a degree whilst developing a career in Technology at PwC.
Participants will complete an apprenticeship with PwC while studying for a degree at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL).
They will work on cutting-edge digital and technology client projects during their work placements, which are integrated throughout their degree. There are a huge range of teams, including
- Cyber Security - where we help other businesses and our clients, to protect themselves against cyber attacks, address vulnerabilities in their systems and respond to cyber attacks. We also have a team of ethical hackers
- Data and Analytics - Our Data Analysts are using a range of technologies, programming languages and machine learning, to help organisations make the most of the data that they're gathering in a secure way, so that they can make the best business decisions
- Technology Consulting - solving business problems through the design of technology strategies, development of technology architecture, delivery of enterprise applications, sourcing, project management and operational management. We deliver the technological solutions organisations need to compete and grow
- Forensic Technology - helping clients in times of crisis, or to understand past challenges and proactively prevent future ones. The team supports clients to manage vast amounts of electronic data and navigate the legal and business processes that are mandated by critical events
- Artificial Intelligence - which helps clients to operate their business more efficiently by automating and/or eliminating repetitive, mundane tasks through implementing leading software robotic solutions
Throughout the 4 year programme, the apprentices have a wide support network, designed to help them whilst at university as well as during all PwC placements. From day 1 of joining, apprentices will be assigned a PwC buddy from the same local office, who is there to ensure a smooth transition into the office. Whilst on placement, each apprentice will have a dedicated Career Coach who is there to support their ongoing personal development, as well as a point of contact for any wellbeing or ad-hoc issues.
