Our strategy, The New Equation, is about how PwC brings together unique combinations of people, powered by technology, galvanizing ourselves as a community of solvers to address those dual challenges. The foundation of the strategy is our multidisciplinary model, which allows us to help clients build trust and deliver sustained outcomes by bringing together deep expertise across a broad range of capabilities. It is this combination of capabilities and the ability to look at things from different perspectives that is so essential to delivering high quality and real impacts for clients, stakeholders and society at large in Africa and globally.
We run our programme alongside the South African Institute of Professional Accountants (SAIPA). Our graduates in this programme serve their articles over three years in our Assurance practice and learn through hands-on coaching. During your time with us you’ll gain exceptional business, personal and technical skills which you will be able to use across the business and throughout your career.

Capture transactions in accounting records.
Perform bookkeeping to balance sheets.
Prepare financial statements.

A completed financial accounting degree with the intention to qualify as a professional accountant.
Great communication and interpersonal skills, and fluency in English – the ability to communicate in Afrikaans is a plus but not a must.
