Who we are looking for
We have ambitious plans to grow our Forensic healthcare business over the next 3 years. We are experiencing increasing demand from clients for ‘crisis’ related support, particularly in relation to regulatory intervention and enforcement, compliance risk and regulatory remediation, with a focus on governance and leadership challenges. Our team already includes a number of healthcare industry specialists, including accountants and clinicians. This team of industry specialists work with a range of healthcare clients including NHS and private providers of care, NHS commissioners and also regulators both in the UK and internationally.
We are now looking to recruit a Manchester/ Reading based Senior Manager into the team who will be a dedicated health industry specialist working across a portfolio of health client engagements.
As a Senior Manager, you will have responsibility for leading the delivery of projects and drafting reports. In addition, you will have business development responsibilities which will require you to build effective business relationships, both within the Firm and with target clients in the healthcare market.
You’ll be joining a team who welcome your outlook and knowledge, whilst developing your skill set further within one of the world’s leading professional services firms. With an increasingly agile, technology enabled workforce, we're open to flexible working requirements where appropriate and have many successful arrangements currently in place. Please apply if you have a keen interest in the work we do.
Our Deals business is an exciting, fast-paced and an ever-growing business that focuses on deals and crisis situations for our clients. Collectively, we deal with the types of situations you hear about regularly in the news and we provide support, insight and analysis to the management, shareholders and financiers of business.

All our people need to demonstrate the skills and behaviours that support us in delivering our business strategy. This is important to the work we do for our business, and our clients. These skills and behaviours make up our global leadership framework, ‘The PwC Professional’ and are made up of five core attributes; whole leadership, technical capabilities, business acumen, global acumen and relationships.
We work in a changing world which offers great opportunities for people with diverse backgrounds and experiences. We seek to attract and employ the best people from the widest talent pool, as well as those who reflect the diverse nature of our society. And we aim to encourage a culture where people can be themselves and be valued for their strengths. Creating value through diversity is what makes us strong as a business and as an organisation with an increasingly agile workforce, we're open to flexible working arrangements where appropriate.
