Create your career, differently.

There used to be one pathway into professional services. University. Degree. Grad program. Career.

We've changed that now.

You can join us straight out of high school as part of our very own PwC Higher Apprenticeship program. You'll build business and technology skills while working toward a qualification in IT. And with study support, you won't need to worry about course fees or the cost of textbooks and materials.

A new way to learn

Apprentices will have the opportunity to obtain two VET(Vocational education and training) qualifications in Information Technology (IT), earning the Certificate IV followed by a Diploma.

Experts will coach you in their field. You'll learn in a hands-on environment, forming relationships that will set you apart. You'll tackle varied, challenging work with a tangible impact on the community and business world.

Once you complete the Higher Apprenticeship program, you’ll have the chance to join our Graduate program and continue growing at PwC. In 2022, 90% of the Higher Apprentices were offered graduate roles. 

The types of problems you’ll get to solve:

Your strengths

  • Curious: You love to explore. You want to take apart things, figure out how they work and put them back together.  
  • Independent: Although you enjoy having teammates, you’re happy to be working on your own, crushing your to-do list. 
  • Data-driven: No data set is too big or too small. You love diving deep into the numbers and making decisions based on the latest facts. 
  • Honest: You believe honesty is the best policy (within reason of course).
  • Responsible: If you say you’re going to do something, you’re going to do it.
  • Order: Whether it’s colour coding your post-it notes and making sure all the fonts are the same, you thrive in a world of order. 
  • Jack-of-all-trades: You like mastering lots of different talents. You see value in being able to dabble across disciplines.
