PwC offers 20 training places in Software Testing and Automation Academy

  • PwC is offering 20 spaces in its Software Testing and Automation Academy, a paid training scheme that can lead to a job with the company.

    The demand for new people in tech is still rising every year, and not everyone goes into the tech industry via the same route. The Department for the Economy teams up with major tech firms across NI each year to run dozens of Assured Skills Academies that help people re-train into specific industry roles that are in high demand.

    The new PwC Software Testing and Automation Academy is looking for 20 people who want jobs in software testing. The scheme will put the participants through a nine-week remote training course delivered by Belfast Met, and those who complete the course will automatically get an interview for an open job role at PwC where they can apply their new-found skills.

    Applicants don't necessarily need to have any experience in the field, but must meet the minimum requirement of having a 2:2 degree qualification or higher in any discipline. The scheme is recommended for recent graduates or people in industry who want to retrain and change career.

    Deborah Stevenson, Operate Director at PwC, commented on the scheme: "Software Testing and Automation skills are increasingly in-demand in Northern Ireland and within PwC globally. This Academy will enable people to embark on careers in this key growth area. We’re keen to hear from recent graduates and people wishing to change career as we continue to grow our tech-enabled business."
