Join our Vacation Program as we continue to solve important problems, together. 

If you're in your second last (penultimate) year of your graduate or post-graduate studies, we have a range of roles for you to explore. As our teams continue to grow, we need unique problem solvers just like you!

What type of solver are you?

You might be a Leader or an Analyst. An Entrepreneur, a Humanitarian or even a Trailblazer. No matter what type of solver you are, there's a fit for you here.

Why join our Vacation Program?

If you’re in your second last (or penultimate) year of an undergraduate or post-graduate degree, our Vacation Program offers you valuable career experience at the heart of our business. The program runs over three (3) to eight (8) weeks (length will vary across our offices) and includes full-time work experience during the university break.

Solve smarter with world class-training and development

From "The Outside" (PwC's corporate Coachella) to the 4,000 course strong PwC Academy, your learning won't stop. 

Here, we want you to grow. So we invest in your development to solve for today and tomorrow. 

Solve better with generous and kind colleagues.

We have great leaders. And they always have your back, so you can get on with making an impact. 

As a vacationer, you'll receive one-on-one coaching and mentoring to make the most of your time with us! 

Solve bigger when you're challenged (in a good way)!

Sometimes growing can be uncomfortable. You need to step outside your comfort zone and be vulnerable.

With support from buddies, team leaders and partners, you'll always be supported to solve the biggest challenges and learn some new skills along the way!

The Application Journey

  • Apply online
  • Digital Interview & Behavioural Assessment
  • Assessment Centre
  • Interview
  • Offer!

Applications closed for 2023 Prepare to apply for our Graduate program by finding where your skills fit and familiarising yourself with how we hire.
We'll be assessing applications immediately and progressing candidates who meet the program eligibility criteria to the online assessment and digital interview. All applications will be reviewed.
Digital Interview and Behavioural Assessment This is the stage where we get to know you better and you to learn a little more about yourself! 

Your digital interview is your chance to bring your application to life. You'll be asked questions that will help us get to know you better and understand why you're interested in creating a career with us.

For your behavioral assessment, you'll play a series of games designed to help us learn more about your strengths and to see if you're a good fit for the area you've applied to. This should take around 45 minutes to complete.
Assessment Centre This is where you get to put your problem solving skills to the test! 

As a part of a group, you’ll complete a case study assessment with a senior business representative from your chosen business area, and also a recent graduate from that team to share their experience - we will give you some tips on how to prepare for this when we invite you to complete it.
Interview  This is the last step! Hooray! 

The final part of our hiring process is a final interview with a Partner from the business area you are interested in joining. Again, this is a two way process - so come prepared with some questions to ask whilst you have this time with the most senior leaders of PwC!
Offer You made it! 
When you’re invited to join our community of solvers, you’ll receive a verbal offer followed by a written offer! That will have all the details on your remuneration, benefits and start date!
