Off-Cycle Risk Assurance - Transformation Assurance Internship

The Programme

Transformation Assurance is one of the five operating units in Risk Assurance, which is the advisory arm under the Assurance “Line of Service” as part of the PwC Network in Singapore. Risk Assurance brings insights and independent assurance to provide an invaluable safeguard in today's complex operating environment.

Risk Assurance works with clients in their boardrooms and their back offices, delivering business control to help them to protect and strengthen every aspect of their business from people to performance, systems to strategy, business plans to business resilience.

Transformation Assurance provides holistic project advisory and execution support to organisations that plan to or are undergoing transformations. Changes in the global economic social world order are accelerating the need to digitally transform. Businesses need to create a differentiated experience for their customers in the digital marketplace, but this comes with its own set of challenges: consistently driving innovation while meeting regulatory requirements, rethinking the supply chain strategy, identifying an optimal operating model, staying cost-efficient but also cutting edge - and challenging the norm to explore new ways of working.

Transformation Assurance offers programme initiative advisory, programme assurance, readiness assessment, deep dive reviews and post-implementation reviews.

We are looking for candidates for off-cycle internship from July to December 2022 (6 months).
