It takes talented people to support the US firm of the largest professional services organization in the world. Not all of us work directly with external clients. Some of our best people choose to apply their talents inside PwC.
As part of Internal Firm Services, you're serving an organization on par with many of our external clients. Our Internal Firm Services team consists of first-rate marketers, human resource professionals, computer technologists, knowledge managers, accountants, financial planners, administrators and leaders. Internal Firm Services staff are the people who make it work for the people who make it work for our clients.
The Start Internship (Start) is designed to introduce PwC to high-performing students from traditionally underrepresented racial and ethnic minority groups within the professional services industry.
Start is the first step in the PwC internship experience.
After successful completion of this internship, Start interns will have the opportunity to intern in a client service role in one of our three service lines: Assurance, Tax or Advisory.
Start interns will work in PwC's Internal Firm Services (IFS), PwC's internal support organization.
While supporting IFS, Start interns will utilize problem-solving, analytical and organizational skills to assist PwC teams with select projects where they are providing strategic service to internal clients, service lines and functional units.
Our Assurance practice collaborates with clients, so that the financial information they report to the investing public and other stakeholders is clear and reliable.
When we fulfill our role as Assurance professionals, by standing firm on quality and integrity, we have a direct impact on how well the world's capital market system functions.
The highly trained and educated Assurance teams go inside companies, and get to know those businesses.
They ask questions, test assumptions, and provide assurance that the companies are reporting information on which investors and others can rely.
The PwC network is a global market leader in tax services.
We assist businesses, individuals, and organizations with tax strategy, planning, and compliance, while also delivering a wide range of business advisory services.
With over 23,000 tax professionals, this means that the PwC network can support our clients both locally and globally.
We have experience working with an expansive and diverse client-base, which comprises all types of businesses-multinationals, local companies, privately-owned organizations, entrepreneurs, family businesses, trusts, partnerships, and private individuals.
From strategy through execution, PwC Advisory helps clients build their next competitive advantage. As the world's second largest global consulting provider, we combine the breadth of knowledge of over 35,000 global professionals with deep industry knowledge to deliver custom solutions for our clients. A long history of working with many of the world's largest and most complex companies means we really understand the unique business challenges our clients face better than most consultancies.
