Hear from our UK Head of Audit about the evolution of the Audit and what opportunities PwC could have for you.
It's a really exciting time to be joining us. We’re growing our teams across all areas of our Audit practice and investing a huge amount in our people, their skills and the technology available, as we continue to radically modernise our business and the way we serve our clients.
The South-East region Audit business at PwC is one of the largest within the UK firm and a strategic priority for growth. And we’re growing. Fast. We provide external audit and audit related services to a broad range of clients, from large multinationals to tech start-ups, from six offices with over 850 staff and Partners. Our clients are from an incredibly diverse mix of sectors; from engineering to financial services and gaming to pharmaceuticals. Our proximity to big business means that you’ll get to work on some of the largest and most complex projects across the firm, whilst maintaining an unparalleled breadth of client experience.
