PwC’s Internship Programme
Put your theory
Are you a dedicated, flexible
and creative team player
with strong analytical, conceptual
skills? And are you looking
for an opportunity to put
what you’ve learned into
practice? Then our internships
in Assurance, Tax &
Legal Services, Advisory
and Internal Services,
offered at almost all offices
in Switzerland, could be
just what you’re looking for.
What can you expect from an internship at PwC?
There’s no question that an internship is
the best way of gaining practical business
experience and seeing what your potential
career could look like. Your internship
starts with an introduction day where
you learn more about PwC. Then you’ll
do an induction programme where you’ll
be closely supported by your buddy and
your coach. You’ll be encouraged to contribute
your ideas and give feedback at all
times. Your internship is designed to help
you interact with your team and clients
on a technical and personal level. You’ll
be working in interdisciplinary, often
international teams, on real projects and
challenges inside or outside the firm.
And the best thing about an internship:
in mutual agreement you may well end
up with a permanent job afterwards.
What do we expect from you?
If you want to do an internship at PwC,
it isn’t just good results at university that
count, but the overall personal impression
you make. At PwC, the key to working
successfully with clients is not only
technical know-how; it also means teamwork,
strong communication skills and
dedication. We expect you to be interested
in the area in which you’d like to
do an internship, and assume you have
good skills in German or French (depending
on which office in Switzerland you’re
applying for), English and MS Office.
How can you apply?
You’ll find all our vacancies on our
careersite, www.pwc.ch/careers. Here
you can apply online and find further
important information about the application
process. Ideally, you should apply
six months before you intend to do your
internship with us, although we will also

notice. In our service lines Advisory, Tax

internships are possible all year round.
In Assurance we prefer to offer internships
during the period from October
