The digital age is bringing rapid change. Businesses are becoming increasingly interconnected, and borders around supply/value chains are becoming increasingly blurred. At PwC, we recognize the importance of IT Risk Assurance as a key enabler in organizations. You’ll work closely with IT, the business, and the audit and risk functions to align business processes and risk to the business environment through identifying risks and recommending mitigation controls.
We offer a three-year contract, on-site training and valuable work experience. We’re looking for talented, skilled graduates who can bring new ideas and a fresh approach to Risk Assurance.
In Data and Analytics we help our clients analyze big and complex data sets by linking performance and decision making with data and technology. This could mean driving new growth opportunities, operating more efficiently or identifying and managing risk. Data and analytics is revolutionizing business, underpinning decision making and driving innovation.
But greater volumes and more detailed data bring new challenges for businesses in converting that data into a more comprehensible and user-friendly format - Creating actionable insights and applying these to transform an organization.
What will you gain from joining us:
- A blend of commercial, technical, financial and data experiences working with iconic clients across industry sectors and countries.
- Structured technical training in a suite of data analytics/visualization tools (e.g. Alteryx, Power BI) and structured accounting and finance training (where relevant).
