Guys Im new to this forum. Ive also applied for PwC Assurance(Autumn intake). Well first of all, I read over some other blogs that PwC requires an essay to go with your application. The essay question the same as the “ideal client” one. I recently submitted my application and there was no such thing as Ideal Client essay. Within a day i got the response as PwC sent me a link to take an Online Reasoning test. I took the test and the following week I was told that PwC wishes to progress my application further!
The next step was, unsurprisingly to write an essay of about 500 words on the question i dreaded all along. Who would be your ideal client and what services etc etc.
thought about it for a while and decided to opt for ADIDAS Group as my Ideal client. I’ve done a little survey on their Financial position and i could see that Adidas is not performing at par. Their Profits are on the decline and their market share seems severely threatened by strong presence of Nike. Operating overheads and costs are on the rise whereas Sales revenue shows consistency. Even the mergers are not living up to their supposed standards… Theres more to it plus the backing of statistical numbers!
I think that Pwc could help Adidas by providing the following services(2 examples):
Audit and Assurance(from auditing of financial statements to setting up controls etc etc) Who doesnt needs the Audit service!
Consultancy(From assesing operational efficiency to addressing the issues regarding outsourcing, Cost cutting etc)
My question is am I moving in the right direction or is my understanding too vague? Forgot to mention that I have applied for Undergraduate Headstart programme in Assurance. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
