Job Description

We assist our clients in staying ahead of the changes that impact their businesses by navigating complexity and risk. Our team delivers deep tax technical, people, and legal expertise while providing the necessary context to make informed and compliant decisions.

Our diverse range of clients includes multinational organizations, public sector bodies, entrepreneurs, and family businesses. As a member of our Core Tax team, you will work with clients of all sizes, from large organizations to budding entrepreneurs and high-net-worth individuals. Your role will involve managing tax risks, understanding obligations, and ensuring compliance with complex legislation. You will have the opportunity to work on a wide range of projects, such as multinational advisory projects, mergers and acquisitions advice, tax compliance, and researching business issues that affect clients' tax affairs.

Working closely with our clients, you will interpret developments in case law, assess the implications of entering new territories or introducing new products, and provide guidance on matters critical to their business. Whether you are involved in UK activities or global projects, you may work on improving internal processes or assisting with a merger or acquisition.

Our summer internships provide invaluable insight into PwC's business and culture. You will have the chance to experience work and life at PwC and collaborate with experienced professionals on real client projects. This is an unrivaled opportunity to learn and grow, so be prepared to fully immerse yourself.

In our Core Tax program, you will have the opportunity to rotate across our Direct and Indirect Tax teams during your first two years at PwC. In the third year, you will align with a specific part of our Tax practice. In the Direct Tax team, you will assist clients in managing tax risks and complying with complex legislation. Our clients range from FTSE 100 companies and global organizations to budding entrepreneurs, high-net-worth individuals, and family businesses. In the Indirect Tax team, you may be involved in advising clients on the VAT implications of their UK activities or working on a global project examining the clients' supply chain. You may also consider the impact of case law developments or provide guidance on mergers and acquisitions.

By joining us, you will gain a deep understanding of our business, build valuable networks, and work alongside specialists in your chosen area. You will receive on-the-job training that will prepare you to work on client projects, giving you invaluable insight into what we do and what truly matters to our clients, the economy, and the wider community. Our internships are designed to launch your career, and based on your performance, you may be offered a place on one of our Graduate Programs after you graduate. If selected, your graduate offer will be for the same office and business area where you completed your internship.

To be eligible for this opportunity, you should be in your penultimate year of an undergraduate or postgraduate degree. Alternatively, you may be in your final year of an undergraduate degree with a confirmed one-year postgraduate place. Additionally, you should have achieved or be on track to pass an undergraduate degree or above in any subject. We assess your progress based on the grades you achieved in your last completed year of academic study.

Applications should be submitted as soon as possible. Once your application is submitted, you will have seven days to complete the online test, which is the first stage of our recruitment process. Assessment centers for this role will take place between December 18, 2023, and January 28, 2024, or between February 19 and March 4, 2024. We will provide at least one week's notice for you to attend the assessment center.
