20 PwC business training places now open for open for applications

  • Applications for PwC’s Future Business Assured Skills Academy are now open, with 20 training places available.

    Applicants require a degree background in any discipline. Successful participants will receive eight weeks of industry-relevant training delivered by Belfast Met and Ulster University, and are guaranteed a job interview with PwC NI upon completion.

    They will also receive a training allowance of £150 per week, travel expenses and may be eligible for childcare allowance.

    The Academy aims to teach skills across project management, business analysis, business acumen and CIMA Fundamentals in Financial Accounting.

    PwC announced that it would be providing 600 Assured Skills training places for potential career roles in November last year. This Academy is the next stage in the delivery of that plan, and is being supported by the Department for the Economy.
