UWA Consulting Society & PwC Consulting in Perth invite you to register your interest and enter into the 2015 Challenge.
The Challenge

The PwC Challenge requires teams (of up to 3) to identify a problem (local/state/national/international), propose initial high level potential solutions and devise a plan highlighting key data and steps that must be taken to further address the problem. There are two rounds to the process.

Round 1: Written Submission

Teams are required to provide a written response (template provided on registration) that will address their problem, reason for choosing and an overview of identified solutions. Round 1 entries must be submitted by 11.59pm on 19 March 2015. Entries will be judged by PwC Consultants and a shortlist of finalists will be selected to move through to Round 2.

Submissions are to be sent to: competitions@consultinguwa.com

Round 2: Office Presentation

Round 2 will see teams add further rigour and detail to their analysis and present their findings to a panel of PwC Consulting leaders. To help in the preparations, each team will be assigned their own experienced PwC Consultant and will be invited into the office for a 1:1 coaching session. The presentation will be held in PwC's Perth office on Tuesday 24 March 2015.

The Prize

The winning team will be guaranteed an interview for a PwC Summer Vacationer role in Consulting for 2015/16.

This is a fantastic opportunity for penultimate students looking to stand out from the crowd and secure a vacation placement.
