    Are you joining in April? If so, I imagine you should have been sent an e-mail by PwC Recruitment with a link inviting you to use the app, along with a unique activation code. Maybe if you're in the September intake they do it later?

    Is this the case everywhere? Its just that I read they give blackberries to people who spend a lot of their time out the office (which is us for the fist 3 years).

    A quick search clears this up Blackberry's can be applied for by managers and automatic for partners. Anyone below manager can apply for a company phone (probably not a Blackberry), but that is based on a need basis. For £25 a month though, I am sure most people could afford their own!

    Managers and above only, get a Blackberry. If you need a mobile for work purposes below manager, then I believe you can get a very basic Nokia.

    Your laptop is not chained to you for 3 years, but 2.5 years, as every 2.5 years your laptop is replaced with a new one.

    1st round or partner? Wikijobs seems to be well supported in this either way.

    Hi guys,

    bit of a stupid question, but where is the best place to look at PwC's current clients? Assurance based?

    Thanks.

    Risk Assurance I would say. Most grads do audit.

    And the reason for that is because it opens more doors.
