Job Description

PwC's Marketing and Sales function is a client-focused, high-performing team, which is strategically aligned to the Firm's priorities and passionately focused on positioning a distinctive PwC brand in the marketplace and driving long-term revenue growth for the Firm.

The Corporate Responsibility (CR) strategy focuses on three pillars to effectively elevate the firm's brand and reputation as a responsible leader and serve as part of the experience of doing business with and working for PwC. The areas of Employee Engagement, Brand & Reputation and Impact Investing help to structure our efforts and serve as a guide for our actions, but do not stand in a siloed manner. Team responsibilities cross pillars and a detailed knowledge of the key goals, activities, challenges and successes is central to a well-rounded and high performing team. The small nature of the team compels each resource to have a sophisticated understanding of a particular area of responsibility but an equally robust working understanding of the related pillars to step in, as appropriate, and serve as an overall CR subject matter expert both internally and externally.
