About us

Third party challenges are closely linked to wider industry hot topics, so the Commercial Assurance team works closely with other PwC FS propositions including the regulatory, technology, business resilience and the operations transformation advisory teams to bring clients joined up solutions.

This means that there is a wide range of opportunities for career and personal development both not just within the team, but within the wider PwC firm.
