Apprentice on the Management Consulting line of service, PwC
“I’m Oli I went to Manchester Grammar and I work in Consulting, I joined PwC in September after deciding uni wasn’t for me. I knew what I wanted to do with my career and so didn’t see the point in going to uni and getting in a load of debt especially since I was really comfortable with working and so didn’t need to delay a career.”
Higher Apprentice, PwC
My name is Saima Akbar, I am 19 years old and a Higher Apprentice at PwC. I have worked at PwC since April 2018 and have been here since.
I attended Runshaw College in Leyland where I sat my A-levels in Business, Economics and Mathematics.
I chose to do an apprenticeship as I wasn’t sure what to do at University and didn’t like any set subject enough to study it for the next 3 years. I also liked the idea of avoiding student debt which was an added bonus!
