We are offering a Research Executive role within a dynamic agency environment that provides frequent new challenges and learning opportunities....
Summer Internship, Actuarial, People & Organisation, Leeds - Leeds
We help our clients and our people create the value they want. We work alongside our clients – from public and private companies to governments and charities – to measure, protect and enhance the things that matter most to them. We help our own people to learn, discover, develop and make a real difference throughout their working lives.
We have big ambitions to grow, and if you're serious about a career in business, we don't think anyone else can give you a better start. Students agree: we’re proud they’ve voted us number one in The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers survey for the last seven years based on the opportunity we offer.
The PwC Deal
No matter which area of the business you choose to join, all routes offer the same deal. The opportunity to grow as an individual, to meet new people, and build lasting relationships that will stay with you for life.
Running during the summer, our 8 week Summer Internships offer high calibre students the opportunity to experience work and life at PwC, and gain a valuable insight into our business and culture. You'll work alongside graduate trainees and experienced professionals on live and interesting client projects. You will be doing real work on real clients so be prepared to get stuck in.
Using complex financial and statistical theories to calculate the likelihood of events - anything from a natural disaster to a wholesale IT system failure - you'll work out what that means financially for clients. It's highly technical work and it's made all the more challenging by the fact that you'll have to present your complex findings in simple, easy to understand ways
People and Organisation
You'll work with a wide variety of companies, from large multi-national organisations to smaller UK-focused businesses, advising them on how best to achieve their objectives in relation to their pension/benefit schemes. You’ll consult on a spectrum of issues including redesign of pension benefits, de-risking legacy pension schemes, negotiating with trustees on how to fund schemes, potential Mergers or Acquisitions, and the impact of legislative changes. The key is to help clients manage the risks within their pension schemes while also achieving their long-term goals.
What you'll gain
You'll find out first-hand if this is the career for you. If it is - and you perform well - you could go back to university with a graduate job offer. And you'll certainly raise your commercial awareness and interpersonal skills to new levels. By experiencing life inside the world's leading professional services organisation, you'll develop many new skills and qualities that will be valuable whatever you choose to do..
We know that the skills and experiences you develop with us will stay with you throughout your career. So join PwC. We'll help you reach your full potential.
Take the opportunity of a lifetime.
