PwC elevates Lublin operations: scaling teams and office infrastructure
During the opening of the PwC Financial Crime Unit office in Lublin in 2019, the company announced a significant increase in the number of employees. Despite lockdowns, changes in work models, and economic slowdowns, this process is proceeding according to plan. As a result, the investor has increased office space by 250% in the current location at CZ Office Park A on Nałęczowska Street 14.
The existing employees are involved in projects in 10 countries. Additional recruitments are planned, especially for individuals with a good command of the German language. The company is continually seeking individuals interested in developing analytical skills.
Analytical work involves actively searching for and securing information from various sources, conducting in-depth analyses of complex data sets, identifying patterns of suspicious behavior, and other warning signals in the mosaic of client data. Since the inception of our office in Lublin, we have actively contributed to the local ecosystem of modern business services and IT services, says Maciej Dudkowski, Manager at PwC Poland, Financial Crime Unit, and leader of the Lublin office.
The technological team at PwC Ctech is also growing in Lublin, currently consisting of 25 people. The team includes both university graduates and experienced experts. In addition to building the Salesforce community on projects in Europe, the team is also developing Microsoft technologies and Marketing Automation. English is the predominant language in the team.
The rapid growth in the number of PwC employees demonstrates that Lublin is an excellent location for companies in the modern business services sector, with a great scientific and human capital. PwC’s decision to expand office space in Lublin is further evidence that our city is friendly to international corporations and actively supports the development of modern service sectors, adds Krzysztof Żuk, Mayor of Lublin.
Lublin does not disappoint us. We manage to strengthen our team with a strong group of experts. The opportunity for personal development, work on international projects, a positive atmosphere, and benefits are our authentic values for new employees, says Bartłomiej Styrnik, Partner at PwC Poland, Financial Crime Unit.
