Meet Darcy Roper

Darcy is a passionate, analytical and driven athlete and aspiring data assurance associate who is striving to represent Australia for long jump at an Olympic Games.
I liked having the opportunity to connect with some of the senior managers, directors and partners throughout the program and hearing each of their unique career journeys was really insightful. It helped reassure me that there is rarely a set pathway in getting to a senior level within a big 4 consultancy firm."

Our purpose at PwC is to build trust in society and solve important problems, and you will be able to impact and learn from that purpose during your time here.

We celebrate all types of degree backgrounds and life experiences, and bring our unique views to our teams.

As an Elite Athlete, you’ll be assessed against the competencies of our global framework, the PwC Professional. This is how we define and encourage leadership at all levels, and many of our leaders began their careers just like you and understand the intrinsic value of growth and mentoring at a pivotal stage. So if you can solve problems, analyse and understand situations or grow in development from those around you, then you may be a great fit.
