What is the Leading Women programme?
If you're in your penultimate year at university, have an interest or experience in leadership and want to get ahead in your career - our Leading Women programme could be right for you. It’s one week of paid work experience within one of our service line teams (Assurance, Tax or Transactions) across the UK.
