There is no doubt that the programme will challenge you and stretch your capabilities, but it will also be a rewarding journey that will equip you for the next stage in your career.
Your journey into Edge will officially kick off and end with an international event.

…to become an international Deals expert
The Edge programme has been designed by PwC Deals EMEA to support the best and brightest graduates at the start of their careers by boosting their development from their first days at our Deals practice. It comprises a three-year journey that officially begins with an International Deals Foundation event.

To help you through this learning process, you will be supported by relevant training courses, as well as by a team of professionals offering mentoring and "buddy" support. At the end of the Edge Programme, the Top Performers will also have the opportunity to take part in an international exchange programme and work in another country.
