PwC Research - Research and insight role
We are a full service market research agency within the largest professional services firm in the world, and so this creates a unique positioning in the market. We bring connected insight to our clients using a variety of data sources, both primary (qualitative and quantitative) and secondary and through our business understanding. Put simply, we help our clients to better understand their customers, employees and stakeholders.
Undergraduate work placement
These eleven-month placements are for students who need to complete a placement as part of their degree. You’ll work alongside graduate trainees and experienced professionals on live and interesting client projects. So you’ll get a good insight into working life at PwC.
What you'll need
You’ll need to be on course for a 2.1 degree or above in any subject. A degree background in a STEM related subject is desirable but not mandatory and if you can demonstrate a strong interest and previous learning in Technology we will also consider your application. We determine whether you're on course for a 2.1 based on the grades you achieved in your last completed year of academic study. You'll need to be a second year undergraduate university student on a four-year degree expecting to do a work placement in your third year.
When to apply
Although there is no application deadline, each year we have only a small number of undergraduate roles remaining. We therefore advise applying as soon as possible, but please be prepared for a short wait in processing your application at each stage of our process while we consider your application alongside others.
