Join our community of solvers in cultivating a collaborative workplace driven by unique perspectives. We’re proud PwC Canada advances a culture that helps everyone thrive. It's one of the reasons we're recognized as a top employer in Canada. As you build a career with purpose and build meaningful connections that’ll last a lifetime, you'll work with people from diverse backgrounds and industries to help solve important problems, powered by the latest technology, to turn today's ideas into tomorrow's solutions.

PwC Canada is committed to cultivating an inclusive, hybrid work environment - one that is collaborative, supportive and productive. We work in-person and virtually, as is best suited for our clients, teams and people. We want you to be intentional with your work, how you do it and where it’s done. PwC offices are hubs of connectivity and learning. We strongly encourage our people to prioritize in-person work, whether it’s in the office or at a client site. This means we expect you to be in-person (either with clients or in the office) at least half of your time.

We know that hybrid work is all about balance, and capturing the benefits of in-person work is essential to your growth at the firm. Exact expectations for your team can be discussed with your interviewer.

Position Description

What you’ll create and do
Today’s interconnected digital ecosystem means that handling the immediate and long-term impact of risks is a major concern for our clients. Our clients are also investing in technology to transform their businesses and turn risks into opportunities. Our team in risk assurance helps our clients create proactive, preventative and holistic approaches to information risk, bringing a full range of expertise to address our clients’ business challenges. We help clients navigate today’s complex business and technology environment and help them build trust and confidence in the systems and processes enabled by technology they depend on to run their businesses.

In Risk Assurance Services, you’ll gain exposure to a variety of clients, industries and technologies. You’ll gain knowledge, experience and mentorship needed to grow as a professional who not only understands the relevant technology risks of today, but can also communicate and provide guidance to our clients in this constantly evolving space. You’ll gain opportunities to interact with senior management at clients and continue to build your own brand in the marketplace.

By creatively using the many resources at your disposal (off-shore service centers, data transformation and visualisation tools as well as purpose built tools and accelerators), you’ll help provide assurance to our clients over their technology driven controls and business processes. The increase in significant client transformations as a result of cloud based technology and emerging technologies further creates an opportunity for you to gain diverse and interesting experiences.
