Congratulations to Stephen Sandford who secured a place in the PWC 2018 Head Start school leaver programme. This opportunity offers a full time employment contract post A-levels, a salary and a Professional Qualification (ATT), which will enable him to become a Tax Advisor in the future.

Stephen underwent psychometric tests, took part in tasks in the Assessment Centre and attended a competency-based interview. When asked about the process and the skills he needed to show, he stated, “Listening makes you a winner”. Stephen is looking forward to taking up his position in September, 2018. We are all very proud of him at Breda Academy.

The PwC Head Start School Leaver Programme is designed to help students develop their business skills by working on real client work, whilst completing formal training and studying towards a professional qualification.

Students will earn a competitive salary and just like our graduate joiners,they will work on varied, challenging clients or internal projects, which make a real difference to the world of business. They will be coached by experts in their field, and at the same time, thanks to our study support, they won’t need to worry about paying for course and exam fees, textbooks or revision materials.
