PwC offices are hubs of connectivity and learning. We strongly encourage our people to prioritize in-person work, whether it’s in the office or at a client site. This means we expect you to be in-person (either with clients or in the office) at least half of your time.

We know that hybrid work is all about balance, and capturing the benefits of in-person work is essential to your growth at the firm. Exact expectations for your team can be discussed with your interviewer.

What you’ll create and do

Today, organizations are striving to improve business performance, effectively managing through crises and getting the most value from transactions. Risk assurance involves identifying, understanding and managing risk of our clients, and discovering where those risk mitigation strategies can be converted into business opportunities. We do this through our collective expertise and by always challenging the status quo to find new, innovative approaches.

Our Risk Assurance professionals use technology and analytics to bring new advancements and efficiencies to our clients, all while excelling in teaming and leadership. From strategy through execution, we help clients build their next competitive advantage.
