From day one, it was great to find others that I could come to for support, especially as a grad at a big firm! BeWell have also supported me to heighten the focus on wellbeing in my team with regular information to share - it's so easy to get lost in the busy times of work, and I am always supported to prioritise self care in our fast-paced firm everyday but also through policies like our Wellness Benefit Policy and our Balanced Lifestyle Benefit Policy.”

Sustainability

We have a long-held commitment to managing our impact on the environment and supporting environmental sustainability. That is why we’ve made a worldwide commitment to reach net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2030, in line with a 1.5°C pathway to mitigate the most severe impacts of climate change. 

Our commitment is focussed on driving progress across four pillars: operations, supply chain, clients and climate agenda. Learn more about our commitment to environmental sustainability.

Our highlights in FY22

  • Achieved our goal to transition to 100% renewable electricity in all of our Australian offices, in line with our global membership of RE100. 
  • Continued certification as a Climate Active carbon neutral organisation and a selection of our people became Climate Active registered consultants to support our clients to achieve their own carbon neutral ambitions.
  • Achieved certification as a bronze-level Carbon Literate Organisation by the Carbon Literacy Project.
  • Achieved 60% growth in membership of our Green Team (from 250 members in FY21 to 400 members in FY22), which is a passionate and engaged people network focused on driving sustainable behaviour change. 
  • Engaged some of our key suppliers in discussions about sustainability and how we could collaborate to reduce our collective emissions impact and developed a new sustainable supply chain strategy. 
  • Launched a new Energy Transition business on 1 July 2022 to support clients in their decarbonisation journey, bringing together expertise from across the firm in one team.
  • As a global PwC network we joined Carbon Call, a group of leading organisations committed to developing more comprehensive and integrated carbon accounting solutions. 
  • We’ve made progress against our net zero commitment in recent years, but there’s still more we need to do. 

Our priorities for the coming year include implementing continuous improvements to our measurement and disclosure activities, managing our business travel impact through a focus on behavioural transformation, and continuing to purchase high-quality carbon credits to offset our emissions.

We will also continue to engage with suppliers on our environmental commitments; incorporate a climate lens into strategy, governance and risk decisions; and communicate with our people to build on our culture of care for our planet and natural resources.

Please take a look at our full report for more information on our environmental commitments, including our approach to net zero and detail on our progress.

A certified Indigenous business, PwC's Indigenous Consulting is a majority Indigenous owned, led and staffed consulting firm. Our purpose is to enable meaningful change in Indigenous communities by realising futures through Indigenous knowledge.

We believe that meaningful change happens when it is created by Indigenous people, not for Indigenous people. Our desire to create this firm reflects our belief in the rights of our communities to determine their own futures.

Who we are

PIC is an Indigenous Consulting business which maintains a majority owned, led and staffed Indigenous operation. The Indigenous Co-Owners, have a 51% share in PIC and PwC Australia owns the remaining 49%. We are a separate member firm in the PwC global network.

The unique power of our business is the combination of our Indigenous expertise and experience, with PwC's world-leading professional services capability. Our aim is to help enable positive change by providing trusted professional services and advice to government, corporate and community clients on Indigenous matters.

We are a values-based consulting business

PIC has a passionate belief that Indigenous people should have the opportunities to fulfil their aspirations. Our desire to create this firm reflects our belief in the rights of our communities to create and determine their own futures. As an Indigenous led partnership with corporate Australia, PIC aims to be an emblem for Indigenous self-determination.

PIC’s culture is firmly grounded in our values and is guided by the following principles:

  • We respect diversity and different points of view
  • We respect those who have walked this earth before us
  • We are accountable to our clients, our communities and ourselves
  • We strive for excellence in Indigenous consulting and operate with integrity
  • We aim to do the right thing, in the right way.

PwC Australia and PwC's Indigenous Consulting (PIC) aim to be an employer of choice for First Nations people, who are supported to build careers and are empowered to follow their chosen pathway. Our First Nations Career Strategy is brand defining and is First Nations led with First Nations people at the heart.

Life & Culture

Building a culture of belonging opens up new opportunities for our people and our firm. When we feel we belong, we feel connected and have a sense of purpose. When we feel we belong, we can thrive.

Values

Care 

Care is more than just benefits like wellness days and perks. It's about being surrounded by people who want to invest in you. Sometimes, it's the small things like our open-plan offices where you can sit next to partners, interns, or anyone. Or our 'Dress for Your Day' culture, so you can express yourself in style. And sometimes it's big things, like the care provided by your leaders and colleagues. We have team leaders who care deeply about your goals and help you hit that next career milestone.

Working Together

To solve important problems, we need to aim to include our diverse talent. We empower our people to use their creativity, authenticity and human differences to be champions of change. We know that when people from diverse backgrounds and with different points of view work together, we create the most value for our clients, people, and society.

Reimagine the Possible

The future of work is changing. We want to make our offices a place of connection for our community. Our offices are a place to connect and collaborate - with each other and our clients. When you work from our offices, we want you to feel energised and enabled, with access to the suitable spaces and tools to do your job and come together with your PwC colleagues and your clients.

Make a Difference

We encourage our people to amplify the work and build the capacity of not-for-profits and social enterprises. Our people can create social impact through various programs, including flexible community and skilled volunteering/mentoring, workplace giving, pro/low bono engagements, social impact fellowships, joining a not-for-profit board and being a Social Impact Champion. If there's a cause you care about, we empower you to make a difference!

Act with Integrity

We are at our best when we have people from diverse backgrounds and with different points of view work together. Our diversity and inclusion plan embeds the right behaviours to build a truly diverse and inclusive culture. Building on the progress we have made, our latest plan details how we will embed diversity, inclusion and well-being into everything we do so we create an environment where everyone belongs. Because a culture of belonging is crucial to enable individual well-being to thrive.

Perks & Benefits

Wellness Benefit

We think that investing in your mental health is both important and personal. We’ll give you $295 a year to spend on items or activities that support your wellness, whatever that might be.

Flexible work arrangements

New shoes? A standing desk? Board games for the family? Finding balance can be tricky. Here, you can spend up to $205 a year on things that will help support your balanced lifestyle.

Together Anywhere

With lockdowns ending and borders opening, we know flexibility is now the norm. We’re hearing loud and clear that our people would like to combine work with travel to spend time with family and friends within Australia and overseas. Our new Together Anywhere program will let you work up to 4 weeks remotely in Australia or overseas. *Subject to certain working rights.

Dress For Your Day

Our diversity is our greatest asset, and it comes in many forms. Our choice of dress is a part of how we express ourselves. Our most important job at PwC is to delight our clients, challenge ourselves, and learn new things. When you wake up each day, consider the day of work ahead. What will you be doing? Where will you be? Who will you be with? You might choose a suit, some jeans or something else – we trust you to choose clothes that best represent yourself and the PwC brand that day.

Floating Public Holidays

You’re unique. And your public holidays should suit you. You can work on all national or state public holidays and swap them for other days that may better serve your cultural, religious or individual preferences.

Parental Leave

Becoming a parent is unforgettable. We don't want you to miss a moment of it. Our Parental Leave Policy includes 26 weeks with enhancements to support parents returning to work. Either carer can take parental leave until a child is two years of age. So more non-birth parents can take 26 weeks of parental leave flexibly and without minimum service requirements.

Explore more perks (plus free barista-made coffee and biccies) on our benefits page.

Application Process

  1. Online Application

    You should prepare to apply 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.

  2. Digital Interview & Pymetrics

    This is the stage where we get to know you better and 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 Pymetrics 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. 

  3. Solution Lab (Assessment Centres) 

    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. 

  4. 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 please come prepared with some questions to ask while you have this time with the most senior leaders of PwC!

Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion diversity icon

We are committed to addressing inequality in our workplace - it’s a commitment we make from the top down and bottom up. While we are making progress, there is still much more work to be done. We want everyone at work to have equal access to opportunities and to reach their full potential which is why we have introduced targeted interventions to address this.

Established under our Belonging strategy, our 2025 D&I targets include:

  • 40% of all partners are women
  • 20-25% of of all partners are from a non-European diverse cultural background
  • 10% people with disability
  • 8% LGBTIQ+ representation
  • 2% First Nations peoples
  • 80% of people have meaningful conversations about managing their wellbeing

Targets alone can be a blunt instrument but when coupled with a plan to build greater inclusivity they can deliver powerful results. We have already introduced and will continue to introduce a range of interventions - including policies, processes and training - to support our targets and to build an environment where all our people feel they belong. 

"Our people are at the centre of everything we do and we want to ensure everyone is able to reach their full potential. Providing an environment where everyone feels they belong is essential to ensuring everyone is productive, motivated and engaged."
- Tom Seymour, CEO of PwC Australia

First Nations Internship

Our Internship for First Nations students is an opportunity to gain industry work experience whilst you’re still studying. This is your chance to take part in the important work we do and discover how we solve problems with our collaborative approach. You’ll work on client engagements, attend networking events to build business relationships and take part in projects that are making an impact and building trust in society

Joining the Firm as part of a cohort, our internships allow you to enhance your skills complementing your studies and be on a pathway to potentially join our Graduate Program. No matter what degree you are studying or what year you are in, our Internships offer you valuable career experience at the heart of our business.

Chiara

Chiara

Bachelor, Global Business
Associate, Transformation Assurance

Self introduction

Chiara DCruz is an Associate in Transformation Assurance at PwC's Adelaide office. Launching her career with PwC in 2020, Chiara brought her diverse skill set and passion for experience design and project management to a role where she gets to make real change. 

"I studied in Hong Kong, graduating with a degree in Global Business. It was a broad degree, so I found my interests through the extracurriculars I did: internships, managing the university's TEDx events program, exchanges in Germany and Canada, and founding my sustainability social enterprise”
 
“During one of my internships, I joined an experience design team where I was exposed to concepts like design thinking, agile, and customer experience, which really piqued my interest. As I learnt more and determined my strong suits, I realised that everything I enjoyed fell within the project space”
 
“Then I came across Transformation Assurance. I loved the idea of helping businesses transition from where they are to where they need to be and had some experience doing so on a micro-level at university. The potential to create change on a larger scale was what really drew me into the role”
 
Chiara says her favourite thing about Transformation Assurance is the variety of projects and skills, so she is constantly learning and trying something new.
 
“My favourite project that I've worked on is designing a client's strategic portfolio framework from scratch. We got to create and implement the entire process from start to finish. Seeing my ideas and contributions come to life throughout this engagement and how much my expertise in the area had developed was really rewarding”

Cultural Diversity

Cultural Diversity diversity icon

Our Cultural Connections network provides a place for advice, support and connection for our people from all cultures. It celebrates cultural differences and increases cultural awareness across the firm. Cultural Connections offers cultural awareness training, through a 1.5 hour facilitated session designed to build awareness of individual culture, learn how the culture of others impacts the way they communicate and act, and develop a culturally inclusive mindset.

“When I started at PwC, the Cultural Connections network instantly gave me a greater sense of belonging. It is a community of like-minded people, both with lived experience and allies, who share a passion for building cultural awareness. As a person from a different culture, I am proud to work at a firm that prioritises challenging unconscious bias and talking action against racial inequity - and I loved that I was able to prioritise cultural days of significance for my family by using the Floating Public Holidays Policy!”

 
 

Trainee Program

As a Trainee, you'll embark on a three-year journey of combined work and study with PwC. You'll join us as a full-time employee while you study part-time for two (2) years. You will take a break from full-time work to complete your degree in the third year! 

Balance is important. That's why you'll receive one (1) day of paid study while you work four days a week! This means you’ll receive a full-time salary while you study! As a trainee, you’ll combine your university studies with work experience to build the perfect foundation for your career, all while receiving professional and financial support in a full-time paid role. 

Our Trainee program offers mentoring, training and networking opportunities with real career experience. You’ll work alongside industry leaders who are experts in their field and passionate about their work. With the vast array of projects, clients and practices at our firm, there is an opportunity to learn and grow in any area you choose.

Strategy& Diversity and Inclusion Scholarship

Strategy& understands that we’ll only solve our clients’ most challenging strategic problems if our team includes a diverse range of experience, talent and ideas. For this to happen, we empower our people  and encourage them to bring their whole self to work. This creates an environment that’s inclusive, collaborative and harnesses our unique differences to solve tough problems. 

We are looking to hire and reward exceptional students who share our commitment to diversity and inclusion (D&I). If you are in your penultimate year of undergraduate or postgraduate studies (completing in 2022) and are interested in joining Strategy&, we welcome your application to our scholarship program. We’re looking to engage with students from a range of academic disciplines, backgrounds and experience.

About Strategy&

Using your consulting and advisory skills as part of Strategy&, PwC's global strategy consulting business, you will use your diverse skill set to take a bold and pragmatic approach to solve our client's most important problems. Driven by your intellectual curiosity and desire to find practical solutions to complex problems, you will use your problem-solving, analytics, communications and leadership skills to develop and bring to life strategies that help clients identify, clarify and resolve complex issues critical to their overall success. You will play a crucial part in gathering and analysing data, identifying key issues, and recommending approaches we can use to address them. From the day you join Strategy&, you will work on the most challenging strategic problems, have a real impact on clients, and be mentored by global professionals at the top of their game.

Disability

Disability diversity icon

Our Ability network offers a place for people with disability, carers of people with disability and those interested in building a more inclusive workplace. In addition to the support it offers network members and the events it runs, Ability also delivers Disability Confidence Training - a 1.5 hour facilitated awareness session on disability, to help build confidence in working with people with disability, reduce stigma and shift to an inclusive mindset.

“As someone who experiences ADHD, I feel empowered to share my accessibility needs with my leader supported by our Reasonable Adjustments Policy. I have received all of the support I need to be myself and at my best every day, and I’m so appreciative of the disability awareness that the Ability network are driving for our people.”

To solve important problems we need diverse talent. We empower our people to use their creativity, authenticity and human differences to be the champions of change. We know that when people from diverse backgrounds and with different points of view work together, we create the most value - for our clients, our people and our society. If you don’t think you quite meet all of the qualifications, we’d still love to hear from you.  

We believe the best work is human-led and tech-powered. If you’re keen to apply and need reasonable adjustments or would like to note which pronouns you use at any point in the application or interview process, please let us know.  

 
 

Gender Equality

Gender Equality diversity icon

Symmetry is our employee led network that is focused on gender equality. It supports an equal workplace and society for all.

“I joined Symmetry as I am incredibly passionate about gender equity for all, and love participating in bringing this to life in the firm and beyond. I love the events Symmetry provides across a broad range of topics - fireside chats; sponsorship versus mentorship; International Women’s Day. These events are insightful and practical and help me to better navigate my career. I love the incredible connections I have been able to build with people outside of my team.”

Firmwide policies that support gender equality:
The firm has a number of policies that support gender equality including a domestic and family violence leave policy; parental leave policy; flexible work policy; personal/carer’s leave policy and compassionate leave policy. You can find out more about these policies here.The firm also publishes information on its gender pay gap annually as part of its Transparency Report.

This year we also launched a new parental leave policy: 

  • Parental leave increased from 18 weeks to 26 weeks - can be taken as a block and/or flexibly
  • ‘Primary’ and ‘secondary’ carer labels abolished to provide entire team opportunity to undertake caring responsibilities
  • Parental leave can be taken up until the child is two years of age
  • Miscarriage leave of 10 days per annum introduced for miscarriage prior to 20 weeks gestation, with stillbirth eligible for full 26 weeks parental leave
 
 

LGBTIQ+

LGBTIQ+ diversity icon

Our Shine network, for our LGBTIQ+ community and allies, helps to increase awareness of the LGBTIQ+ community among our people and offers information, support and networking opportunities. In addition to the support it offers, Shine delivers Shining Light on LGBTIQ+ Inclusivity training - a 1.5 hour facilitated awareness session on LGBTIQ+ inclusive language and behaviours, to help identify the challenges LGBTIQ+ people face and apply effective communication skills to foster inclusion.

“As a bisexual woman, I feel like I experience a double glass-ceiling when it comes to my identity. I knew that when I joined PwC that I wanted to find my safe space in Shine. One of the most rewarding aspects of being part of Shine is running our LGBTIQ+ inclusion training. It allows me to share my experiences and connect with colleagues on something that is very close to my heart. The conversations we have in those sessions not only raise awareness to impact today’s everyday behaviours, but help us to build a better tomorrow for the future generations to come through our workforce.”

Firmwide policies that support our LGBTIQ+ community:

The firm has a Transitioning / Gender Affirmation Support policy for any person who chooses to transition and affirm their gender while working at the firm. This includes 15 days paid leave, unrestricted unpaid leave, a clothing allowance and a support team to assist you with developing a plan.

Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islanders

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders diversity icon

Our Reconciliation network is focused on engaging and deepening relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities through activities such as volunteering, building cultural awareness and capacity building engagements.

“As a First Nations Person, I'm committed and passionate about progress towards Reconciliation in our organisations and communities, and feel privileged to be able to do this at PwC. I’m grateful to work with allies who lead with empathy and curiosity on how they can help to build an equitable society for First Nations people.”

It has been three years since we launched our joint Elevate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) between PwC and PwC’s Indigenous Consulting (PIC), and we’re excited to share our progress with you. 

Firmwide policies that support Reconciliation:

  • Our First Nations Cultural Leave is designed to protect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ right to maintain and strengthen their connection to community and to enable time to connect with their community to maintain and develop their culture.
  • We launched our additional cultural awareness training module and had 76% of our staff complete it.
