"I first heard about Forensics and Financial Crime from a friend who interned in the team a few years ago. She told me that many interns who decided to stay with the team are now certified private investigators. This made me curious about the work and day-to-day activities."
As a Forensics and Financial Crime graduate, Helen says her favourite part about her job "is knowing that from a big-picture view, I am impacting society and our clients positively."
Helen loves the flexibility that PwC offers. For her, it means “that 'working' looks different to me every day depending on my situation or circumstance. For example, I have personal training lessons every Tuesday, so I will opt to start work early or finish late to make up the time. And if I need a change of scenery, I can work from the library, office, or even my parents' place!"
This flexible nature has dispelled some myths about working in big firms like ours. Helen finds that she benefits from choosing her hours and work location as it allows her to accommodate her personal life, increase productivity and balance her mental health needs. She thinks that the three most essential parts of utilising flexibility are the balance it creates in her life for:
- Managing work-life commitments
- Increasing her productivity
- Finding space to clear her head and prioritise her mental health
