Professional services firm PwC says it has received almost 400 applications for its new female partner shadowing scheme which aims to encourage more women to enter accountancy and climb to the top of the career ladder. 

The week-long scheme, which will take place over the summer, gives talented female students a chance to gain an insight into the firm while shadowing a female partner or director. They will attend meetings, work with clients and other PwC teams. They will also gain exposure to the firm and experience of what it’s like to work within a leadership role.

Gaenor Bagley, PwC head of people, said: “We’re really proud to have a high number of women in leadership positions at PwC and we think it’s right to share our expertise with talented students to help them reach their potential. We’re keen to show the variety of opportunities available to everyone at PwC and give a true insight into what it takes to make it to the very top in a firm like ours.

“The decisions you make about your career are some of the toughest you face. By taking part in a shadowing scheme students can get some great first-hand experience and insights.”

Positions on the female partner shadowing scheme throughout the summer are in various PwC offices across the firm’s tax, consulting and audit businesses. Pwc says those students who impress during their week will go on to complete an interview and the door will be open for them to return as an intern or a full-time graduate trainee depending on their year of study.
