2017 Assurance – Full Time (CPA)

 PwC Canada

Our purpose is to build trust in society and solve important problems. Our shared global values help us achieve our purpose and guide our actions. We act with integrity, make a difference, care, work together and reimagine the possible.

At PwC, we work together to provide exceptional industry-focused services to clients from 26 offices across Canada. We’re a member of the PwC network of firms, with more than 223,000 people in 157 countries.

Our culture

We pride ourselves on providing equal opportunities for success and development, with leaders focused on ensuring everyone’s success. We work together and create an environment that’s fun and social, where everyone can bring their passions and whole selves to work. Plus, as part of a global network, there’s opportunity to work with international teams and clients while based in Canada or as part of a global secondment.

The role

PwC's Assurance professionals understand how businesses work from the inside. With more than 3,100 Assurance professionals in 26 cities across Canada, working closely with public and private companies, we help solve complex business issues faced by management and boards, and serve the public interest by supporting the capital markets system through reliable financial reporting.

Our teams ask questions, test assumptions and evaluate whether companies are reporting information upon which investors and others can rely on. We combine deep technical skills and sector experience to help our clients address the challenges of a rapidly changing environment and strengthen their businesses.

As an Associate working towards your CPA designation you’ll be put at the heart of understanding how businesses operate. You’ll add credibility to the assertions of management about the financial condition and performance of a company, while using leading-edge technology (such as Aura, Halo and Connect). This ensures you're at the forefront of understanding how audits are delivered to clients.

What you’ll benefit from

We provide industry-leading opportunities to develop you as a professional, while ensuring flexibility for you to pursue your personal interests. With us, you’ll have a clear career path, leaders who care about and support your development and many learning and development opportunities on and off the job.

Our Enhanced Working Practices really set us apart. We teach rather than tell, developing you through shadowing, lessons learned, team workshops, rounds and observation, and feedback.

We recognize the importance of providing flexible ways to work, so we’ve developed a variety of flexibility programs to help our people make the most of their working time. We’re also flexible in the way we work and how we embrace technology like Google Hangouts and tools for work.

Benefit from where you work—join us and seize the opportunity of a lifetime.
