We guide. We support. You grow.
Looking for an exciting job in a continuously growing and globally operating company? Are you interested in several industries and like to work analytically with figures? Eager to learn about or contribute to our (in-house developed) data analytics and robotic tools that make our lives easier? Curious to see the bigger picture and attracted by client-facing work? If this sounds like you, then start your career as a junior auditor in Industry at PwC!
As an auditor in the non-financial sector, your clients will be active in sectors like retail, Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG), telecom, automotive, technology, pharmaceuticals and services. PwC has a variety of clients with whom you’ll be working: public interest, family-owned businesses, international clients, scale-ups, and more.
You’ll help clients investigate the reality behind the core of their company: their annual accounts. By being part of a team that performs an independent verification of clients' financials, you play an important role in helping companies accurately reflect their business in a financial picture. You’ll learn about your clients’ businesses, internal control processes and risks they face. You’ll have the opportunity to get to know their products by attending stock counts, and you’ll review the balance sheet and profit and loss accounts and assist in formally approving the annual accounts.

Who you are
