  • Risk and regulatory requirements have never been higher on the boardroom agenda. Our Risk Assurance professionals help organizations effectively manage their risks and increasingly complex regulatory requirements. We help clients demonstrate that, whatever the threat, there's a plan in place to deal with and mitigate that risk.
  • As a Co-op or Winter Intern in our Accelerate program you will gain exposure to the following areas within Risk Assurance Services:
  • Assurance Development: Redefine how PwC performs its assurance services by building a strong understanding of commonly used client information systems (ERPs) to develop automated solutions to problems encountered by existing engagement teams.
  • Specialised Assurance: Engage with clients in highly specialised assurance tasks, using advanced data analysis and automation to deliver results. Includes testing of key client reports, testing over client's ERP system conversions and developing solutions for industry specific assurance.
  • Data Analysis: Help clients manage their data better and feel confident that the information generated from their business data is reliable and can help them make the right business decisions.
  • Acquire Data: Work with clients to understand and set up and optimize the process to acquire comprehensive datasets used as the foundation of PwC's audits. This includes implementing the cutting edge technology (such as PwC Extract) for data extraction and transformation to facilitate end to end automation.
  • With connectivity being a key enabler of our strategy, our objective is to become the most connected firm - connected to our clients, our communities and to each other. PwC follows an Activity Based Work model, where our PwC professionals engage in a diverse range of activities from our offices, from client sites, or our home.
