PwC looks for the following skills when recruiting graduates:

All our people need to demonstrate the skills and behaviours that support us in delivering our business strategy. This is important to the work we do for our business, and our clients.  These skills and behaviours make up our global leadership framework, ‘The PwC Professional’.  

The PwC Professional focuses on five core attributes; whole leadership, business acumen, technical capabilities, global acumen and relationships.  We use this framework to recruit, develop and assess our people at all grades and in all areas of our business, because we expect all of our people to be leaders.

How you apply the skills you developed at UCL to your current role:         Playing hockey throughout my 3 years at UCL has developed my interpersonal skills, meeting a diverse range of people and helping me work in large teams and network with colleagues and clients at PwC. My degree in Economics has helped me think analytically in my role and specific modules in Mergers and Valuations and Micro-economics have helped me with more technical aspects of my job. My involvement with the Economics and Finance society helped prepare me for job applications and interviews, as well as keeping me informed me on potential career paths and employers.
