Job Description & Summary

PwC’s Business & Client Development function includes Business Development, Account Driver and GRP support (Center of Excellence) teams.

The Account Driver team is both inwardly focused (helping our Relationship Partners manage our largest and most complex accounts), as well as client-facing in terms of building strategic relationships with certain teams from the client(s). Account Drivers are responsible for helping drive account management excellence internally (strategic planning, pursuit lifecycle support, knowledge capture, account rhythm) as well as building key relationships with relevant client teams. They support the Relationship Partners and the different teams working on an account to bring the best of the firm to the client and to support in ensuring we go to clients as one firm. The Account Driver team is accountable for a comprehensive account management role.

As an account driver, you will support the largest accounts for PwC in the ME region. This will involve working with the account’s Global Relationship Partner, Engagement Partners active on the account, as well as their teams from across our different Lines of Service.

The role combines two priorities

An Account Driver is a person who brings strong networking & relationship building skills (both internally and externally), as well as comes from a strong account management background. Prior experience in a Big4, strategy house, or large multinational company is not necessary, but is a plus.

  • Manage internal stakeholders and build knowledge about the firm's offerings to generate potential business opportunities.

Requirements:

  • The candidate will be a highly motivated and a high performing individual with the ability to be flexible and adaptive on a daily basis
  • Education: Bachelor's degree or equivalent
  • Years of experience: 0-4 years in an account management or BD role - preferably within a professional services environment
  • Fluency in spoken and written English and Arabic is preferred (with some exceptions)
