We use technical and business knowledge to solve our clients’ problems. And because we offer so many different technology services we need people with different experiences to help us deliver them effectively. Digital is the new normal, transforming how we work and live.
At PwC, as we focus on future innovations, we’re investing in the best and most diverse talent of today and tomorrow. We’re pushing forward with the use of technology within our own business – enabling our people to work more efficiently and collaborate more easily. All this is part of our commitment to put technology at the centre of our strategy as we continue to help our clients navigate the future digital landscape.
In Forensic Technology we develop and utilise cutting edge technology to help our clients in times of crisis, to understand past challenges and prevent future ones. We could be searching the personal computer and smartphone of an executive suspected of intellectual property theft, analysing large volumes of financial data to uncover hidden patterns, or identifying emails containing evidence of price fixing.
Our growing practice serves a diverse international client base, across a variety of industries and in many geographic markets, often working with our colleagues abroad. We’re passionate about technology, help clients solve important problems and work on some of the most high profile projects in the UK and globally.
Our global team of licensing professionals conduct software reviews across a range of multinational companies on behalf of our clients who represent some of the largest Software Vendors globally.
Using a range of skill sets, we work to capture the relevant software applications deployed across an organisation, and ensure they are being used in accordance with the license restrictions.
As part of this role our team members have regular client contact and interaction, the opportunity to travel and a clear pathway to build a career among a fast paced team with clear plans for future growth.
As part of its daily work our team collates and analyses data, address discrepancies, summarise findings, and ensures continuous project management.
You will be responsible for your own caseload, meeting deadlines agreed with clients, and will be actively encouraged to contribute to the development and improvement of program delivery and efficiency.
More specifically, as a member of our team you will have the opportunity to
Manage the delivery of multiple software license compliance reviews to agreed timeframes and budgets, with assistance from other colleagues within the team
Build your own network of relationships with the Global Software Vendors that we work with on a daily basis
