The programme

The programme is called Edge, because it is cutting-edge. We offer you the means to get ahead and become an international deals expert with a broad skillset and good network. The programme challenges you and puts a lot of pressure on you, but the result ensures that you will be ready for the next step in your career. The programme lasts two years and officially starts with an International Deals Foundation event, where you will meet 400 other starters and Deals colleagues from PwC EMEA.

 Once you have started the traineeship, you will switch between different competencies every six months, so that you will come into contact with different facets and types of clients.
