We’ve all experienced the impact of extraordinary technological change over recent years. All of our clients are impacted by digital advancements, and so our propositions need to respond to that. We are also seeing that our clients are changing how they work – increasingly working remotely and across multiple locations. For PwC, this means designing an operating model where we’ll improve quality, deliver outstanding value to our clients, and create a better experience for our people.
Our Assurance Competency Centre is one of our key priorities to respond to this challenge. The centre will support our client facing teams across the UK in delivering non-judgmental aspects of an audit whilst supporting our objectives to drive efficiencies, reduce costs and improve quality.
As well as overseeing and driving improvements to quality and efficiency, through more focussed delivery, the Competency Centre will play a critical role in driving ongoing innovation in what we do and how we do it – most particularly how we further automate delivery of audit based activities. The Activity Leader will be absolutely fundamental to us achieving not just our growth strategy in terms of hours to be delivered under this model, but also in achieving full automation potential. The selected individual will be highly motivated to help drive this strategically significant change in our business.
A key objective of the Competency Centre is to support PwC’s social mobility agenda and as such we are looking for someone who is able to be open minded and creative about how and who we recruit and deploy on audit work, whilst understanding key quality criteria. Therefore being part of the Competency Centre provides you with the opportunity to make a real difference by supporting PwCs social mobility agenda as well as building highly sought after and transferable skills that will help you develop and progress more widely at PwC.
