Develop your potential

We develop our talents through the 70-20-10 approach.

Besides technical courses we offer you development solutions focussing on soft & business skills. We offer you the most adapted frame for development if you take the ownership to identify and use the most appropriate learning experiences according to your business and development requirements:
A wide range of courses is available to be trained on knowledge and skills (10% - Education). Mentors, role models and executive coaches can accompany you through your development (20% - Exchange & Exposure). The most effective learning comes from doing. Up to you to grad the opportunities to get out of your comfort and work on unfamiliar projects and challenges (70% - Experience).

  • Technical training

    One of our priorities is to support you in getting strong technical skills and in becoming a knowledgeable expert. Accordingly, we provide you with a wide range of training courses responding to the technical features and international regulations (i.e. Ordre des Experts Comptables, Réviseurs d'Entreprises, Wirtschaftsprüfer, other EU or International Professional Qualifications).

  • Soft skills programme

    Working with an international clientele and dealing with various teams of co-workers requires sound behavioural capabilities. This is why we set up a dedicated programme focused on self-awareness, client and people development skills.
    We designed the soft skills curriculum in a scalable format matching your various career steps and maturity levels. Each programme is run on a cross-competency basis to connect people, create synergies and promote the sharing of experiences.

  • Individual Training Leave

    Besides the training path set up and sponsored by the Firm, you can also enrol in training courses responding to your personal needs and aspirations on a private basis. The Luxembourgish law allows you to take an Individual Training Leave to acquire new skills and qualifications.

  • Language training

    With more than 70 different nationalities in our Firm, cultural diversity is a reality. Given the predominantly French-speaking environment in Luxembourg, we offer French courses to all our non-French speaking people. And, for those who wish to improve their level of English or learn Luxembourgish, we can put you in touch with external institutions that have attractive conditions.

  • Real time development

    When you watch a sports competition like football, you see the coach constantly providing directions to the team throughout the entire match so they can be at their best. At PwC we follow the same principle. We do not wait for the end of year to ask and give feedback but we make everyday an opportunity to grow and develop by engaging in real-time feedback. Snapshot: a mobile-enabled technology allows to capture our progress as a PwC Professional throughout the year.

  • Mind Your Self

    In addition to technical, soft and business skills included in our various training plans, we developed and implemented an innovative approach called "Mind your Self" to help our People reflect on their own internal resources and fulfil their whole potential.
    We offer a wide range of sessions focussed on Mental, Emotional, Body and Relations aspects. They include tai chi mental, emotions' control, quit smoking, sport coaching and intercultural management among others.

    Your career coach plays a critical role in enhancing your development, inspiring you to be at your best and in guiding you to career success day to day. He/she supports you in informal and formal ways—spontaneously and in planned long-term career discussions.

  • Be well, Work well

When you arrive at the firm you will learn more about our Be Well, Work Well initiative and we will provide you with resources to energize and empower you.
