On Friday 19th of May, we went on a 15 mile charity walk in collaboration with our office charity – St Luke’s Hospice for PwC’s One Firm One Day event. The route we took was a slightly tailored version of the Sheffield Round Walk as we wanted to start the walk from the office. During the walk, we volunteered to use litter pickers to help clean up the city.
Here’s an extract of what St Luke’s does:
“We care for people aged 18 and above throughout Sheffield who have terminal illnesses. We aim to control their symptoms, alleviate pain, and give them the best possible quality of life – all free of charge.”

Here’s a picture of us setting off on our 15 mile walk just outside the office. It was a rainy Friday indeed!
With summer fast approaching, my last day at PwC is getting a lot closer. The question I keep getting from my peers lately is “are you looking forward to going back to uni?”
Honestly? ’m not sure how I feel about it. Obviously I am looking forward to be with my friends at uni again and working less hours in a day, but I definitely will be missing the new friends I’ve made in the past 9 months here. However this is a path I chose, and all I can do is continue to work hard each day.
If you’re still looking for a placement, don’t give up. There are firms out there with vacancies still available, all you have to do is search for them. I would highly recommend taking up a placement role as it is a huge learning curve full of benefits. You will return to uni with a year’s experience of working life, and a different (hopefully better) attitude towards time management.
Don’t fancy a year away from uni? Try a summer internship instead! At PwC, we offer a 6 week summer internship role with a majority of interns being offered a full time job offer at the end of the 6 week period. That’s definitely a win win situation in my books.
With the end of the uni semester approaching – I’d like to wish all of you the very best of luck in your exams (if you’ve not finished already) and have a wonderful summer, make the most of it!
