The PwC Professional

The PwC Professional is our global framework for defining and encouraging leadership at all levels

Our Leadership Development Framework

Our development approach emphasizes frequent, informal feedback against these principles to maximize strengths, quickly close gaps and drive learning in real-time throughout the year. It centers on giving our people the skills to deliver the highest technical quality, enhance credibility and forge and sustain high-quality professional relationships. All our staff are recruited, developed and managed against the PwC Professional’s five attributes for leadership.

The combination of these attributes helps our people bring their best self to work and to inspire their colleagues and clients to do the same. It also means that PwC people will be strongly and uniquely positioned to meet the challenges of the future wherever their careers might lead them.

Whether you're an experienced professional or starting out in your career, we’ll look for you to provide examples of how you've demonstrated the PwC Professional attributes throughout your work experience, academic studies, extra-curricular or volunteer activities.
