Stage 1

Online Application Form

Firstly, you will be given a standard application form to complete. Depending on your specific application, you may also be asked to complete some questions to assess your competency.

Stage 2

Online Numerical and Verbal Reasoning Tests

Depending on the business area you applied for, you will be asked to complete numerical and inductive or verbal reasoning tests online. You will have to complete the tests again, under supervision, on the assessment day. They will be timed and done on paper, so sitting them online is good practice.

Stage 3

Occupational Personality Questionnaire (OPQ)

This is a work style preference questionnaire designed to assess your behavioural preferences by asking you to choose a statement (from a set of various statements) which represents your least likely behaviour in work situations. Try to answer as quick as possible as this will represent your most natural answer – and thus, the most accurate answer.

Stage 4

First Round Interview

A one-to-one interview, lasting around 45 minutes. Depending on the programme you have applied to, this may be a telephone interview or a face-to-face interview with a PwC manager at your chosen office.

Stage 5

Assessment Day

During the assessment day, you will be asked to complete the aforementioned numerical; and inductive or verbal reasoning tests again. You will also be given the chance to explore the centre and learn more about life at PwC.

Succeed on the assessment day and you’ll be invited back to complete a final interview.

Stage 6

Final Interview

A one-to-one interview with a partner/director from your chosen business area.
