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.
  • Opportunities: The opportunities afforded to you will include but not be limited to, proactively assisting in the management of a portfolio of clients, while reporting to Directors and above; being involved in the financial management of clients; and being actively involved in business development activities to help identify and research opportunities on new/existing clients.
