About Us
PwC and Microsoft

PwC is the leading global professional services firm and acclaimed as one of the world's leading employers. We offer diverse and rewarding experiences for our people: through the variety of clients we engage with and projects we deliver; the calibre of our teams; and the exceptional training and career development opportunities we provide.

As organisations increasingly seek to respond to the challenges of operating in the digital age, PwC provides independent advice and extensive capability to help our clients deal with the impact of digital disruption on traditional ways of doing business. Our distinctive insight is that organisations don't need a digital strategy, but a business strategy for the digital age, as digital impacts every aspect of the organisation.

The real imperative for our clients now is to become 'digitally fit', in order to survive and thrive in the modern digital economy. For PwC, this means that we must offer our clients a range of digital platforms so that they can respond to the digital threat and opportunity: we help our clients understand its impact on their markets and customers; define their strategy; evolve their existing capabilities; create new opportunities; accelerate delivery; and build digital trust in their brand.

One such digital platform that PwC is now investing in is Dynamics365 covering its CRM, Financials and Supply Chain offerings. As the only business transformation partners of Microsoft, PwC is well placed to offer its clients full business transformation services for the digital age and specifically needs to offer Microsoft implementation services.

A key strength of PwC is our ability to operate as one firm across multiple disciplines: we bring expertise in consulting, strategy & economics, assurance, risk, tax, business recovery and corporate finance to help our clients respond to digital disruption. Within consulting, we strive to become trusted advisers, combining industry insight, functional expertise and practical experience to help our clients achieve measurable, positive, and sustainable business outcomes. Combined with Salesforce.com implementation services, PwC's offering in the digital market is unique and a powerful one. As well as Microsoft technical skills we are able to engage business transformation professionals.

To develop our digital capability at PwC, we are looking for people who enjoy the excitement of shaping new ideas and working as part of multi-disciplinary teams on complex challenges, where each project is likely to be different to the last. We are looking for candidates with the passion and commitment, intellect and experience that can enable our clients' success in the intensely competitive economic environment of the digital age.

The skills we look for in future employees

All our people need to demonstrate the skills and behaviours that support us in delivering our business strategy. This is important to the work we do for our business, and our clients. These skills and behaviours make up our global leadership framework, 'The PwC Professional' and are made up of five core attributes; whole leadership, technical capabilities, business acumen, global acumen and relationships.
