Job Description & Qualifications

Strategy& Women in Consulting is a supported recruitment pathway to a Summer Internship.  On this pathway you'll meet and learn from our inspiring women and find out what a future career with us in strategy consulting could look like. You’ll have the opportunity to attend a virtual insight day followed by an (optional) in-person networking event hosted in our London office. Strategy& Women in Consulting is designed to highlight our talented women, de-mystify the world of strategy consulting and offer support for the remainder of our application process. 

Business Area

PwC’s Strategy& team is a market-leading consulting practice consisting of approximately 400 consultants in London, and benefits from the broad expertise and international reach of the wider PwC and Strategy& networks. Strategy& can offer you a career with diverse and challenging assignments - our teams work with a wide variety of UK, European and Global corporate clients (from large consumer goods companies, online retailers, start-ups and FinTechs to charities, government departments and the public sector) and investors (private equity and investment funds). We help our clients solve their most important challenges and redefine the future through a range of projects, such as growth strategy, market entry, mergers and acquisitions and value creation. We evaluate each client's unique proposition and market positioning, identifying both innovative opportunities for growth and risk areas that need to be addressed.

What you'll do

During the insight day, we’ll provide hints and tips on how to showcase your skills and experiences on your CV, how to write effective and relevant motivational question responses and begin to build your commercial awareness. There will also be a dedicated case study workshop based on a project that the Strategy& team has recently completed, allowing you the opportunity to practice in a friendly, open and supportive environment. Throughout the day there are many opportunities to ask questions and network with the team.

At a later date, attendees will then have the opportunity to join us in our London office for a networking evening, where you’ll meet our team in-person. They will speak candidly about strategy consulting and our firm, and answer any questions you may have.

What you'll gain

After attending the insight day and networking event, you’ll be able to continue the application process for a Summer Internship within the Strategy& team. If successful at the next stage, you’ll be invited to take part in our assessment days. Participants will also be allocated a buddy to offer help and support throughout the remainder of the process. 

Please note that you’ll not be assessed during the insight day or at the networking event.
