Who we are looking for

Due to unprecedented demand for our Total Impact Measurement & Management (TIMM) services, PwC is looking to expand its current team by up to 10 people. This is an opportunity to be part of a unique offering in the market, one which answers a fundamental question many leading organisations have been asking: “How can we measure and value our true impacts?”

We are particularly seeking Manager level candidates with the necessary breadth of experience and depth of expertise to run large, complex and intellectually challenging client projects. We will also consider exceptional candidates at both more junior and more senior levels.

Our team can offer you a highly stimulating work environment, a breadth of experience rarely matched and a competitive salary and benefits package, as well as the opportunity to make a real difference.
 
CLOSING DATE:  Friday 24th October 2014

About the role

Over the past four years a multi-disciplinary team drawn from our Sustainability & Climate Change, Economics and Tax practices have collaborated to develop the TIMM framework. Our TIMM White Paper was formally launched in September 2013 at the UN General Assembly at a meeting hosted by Ban Ki-moon focused on the contributions of business to the Post-2015 development agenda. Full details at www.pwc.com/totalimpact.

TIMM allows organisations to measure and value the social, environmental, economic and fiscal impacts resulting from their operations, as well as their extended value chains. It can be applied at the product, project, regional or enterprise level. It is being used by our clients to manage trade-offs in decision making, drive innovation, identify risk and opportunity in their supply chains, communicate with greater simplicity and credibility and, in some cases, to help them transform their business models.
 
As part of the role you will be expected to:
  • Manage large, complex, multi-disciplinary projects involving both more junior staff and input from internal and external specialists
  • Apply your analytical skills and specialist knowledge in a range of UK and international contexts from corporate strategy and transformation to major public infrastructure projects
  • Contribute to the continued intellectual and practical development of our TIMM methodologies and models and our related service offerings
  • Contribute to the growth of the team and business development
  • Work with clients in the UK and internationally

The skills we look for in future employees

We use this framework to recruit, develop and assess our people, at all grades and all areas of our business, because we expect all of our people to be leaders.
