Job Details

Quality is at the heart of what we do. Combining passionate people with leading technology, we work together to build trust in society. We put the team first and solve important problems by challenging the organisations we audit and being open to challenge ourselves. We take pride in our work and the profession, recognising audit as a deep specialism. 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.
Capital Markets advises companies on important deals such as initial public offerings ("IPOs") and significant acquisitions/mergers or divestments. As part of the assurance we provide in connection with these transactions, we provide public opinions on the Historical Financial Information ("HFI") published within the circulars and prospectuses, as well as other opinions and comfort letters on the other financial information in these documents. We are specialists in the UK and US capital market regimes and also provide assurance and advice in connection with the financial reporting aspects of these deals, including financial projections, financial reporting procedures and offering documents.

We are building a team within Capital Markets to deliver our work on HFI, recognising the accounting and auditing expertise required to deliver these opinions to a high quality and the need to have a designated team to deploy at short notice in a deals environment. We are therefore looking for people to join our team who have recent knowledge of PwC audit methodology and a strong IFRS accounting background.

PwC is the market leader in providing assurance on these transactions. We provide services that our clients and their other advisers depend on. It's both a responsibility and a privilege to guide our clients through moments that matter deeply to them. Our breadth of clients in an ever-changing market means we need to be agile - responding when we need to, in a way that really makes a difference. We are looking for people with the interpersonal skills needed to develop trusted relationships with clients and work alongside them to help solve their issues. We apply the professionally skeptical mindset you will have learnt as an auditor in a deals context.

Our Capital Markets team works on some of the highest profile best deals in the market. We pride ourselves on our inclusive culture and the importance we place on wellbeing and development. This is underpinned by a blend of home/office working. We are a supportive and collaborative team, and empower and trust our people to work independently but with coaching and guidance as needed. Consultation is a core part of our culture and our partners and directors work closely with more junior team members to share knowledge and experiences.

We support an inclusive culture by acknowledging the unique experiences and perspectives each individual brings to the table, with our team representing a number of different backgrounds and cultures. Many of our team are working parents.
