Trainee Program

Create your career at PwC

As a Trainee, you'll embark on a three-year journey of combined work and study with PwC. You'll join us as a full-time employee while you study part-time for two (2) years. You will take a break from full-time work to complete your degree in the third year! 

Balance is important. That's why you'll receive one (1) day of paid study while you work four days a week! This means you’ll receive a full-time salary while you study! As a trainee, you’ll combine your university studies with work experience to build the perfect foundation for your career, all while receiving professional and financial support in a full-time paid role. 

Our Trainee program offers mentoring, training and networking opportunities with real career experience. You’ll work alongside industry leaders who are experts in their field and passionate about their work. With the vast array of projects, clients and practices at our firm, there is an opportunity to learn and grow in any area you choose.

From university to a career

When you join our firm as a Trainee, you may have limited experience in your chosen field from university. We'll help you build upon that experience in environments you may not have access to in your studies in technical and practical areas rapidly evolving in a global environment.
Due to our firm's collaborative and business-led nature, you can work with several teams such as tax, projects, banking, deals and more. And each team is there to help you in this journey in a supportive and growth-oriented environment. 
You can join us and learn in an environment that is accessible and open, and we will provide work that will help you grow into your ideal career. You'll discover a wide range of challenging, rewarding and practical work with clients in a variety of industries, including:

  • Pharmaceutical
  • Retail
  • Digital and technology
  • Energy and resources
  • Automobile and airline
  • Food and beverage
  • And more

The work you do

Our core purpose is to solve important problems. We tackle this by serving our clients, our people and Australia by providing solutions to exciting and complex challenges. 

You can help us to solve these problems by learning and engaging with us. You may work on contracts in market transactions, litigation matters or mergers, acquisitions and restructuring. Or you could work within a team helping guide the future of end-to-end employment services.
Whatever role you take, your team will help you succeed in your career. Many of our trainees receive a full-time offer to join our Graduate program, so you can graduate from university and already have a job lined up.

Trainees will also have access to various social groups and events at PwC and get-togethers with your team and the broader trainee teams.
