Humaid Motala, PwC

Humaid is a truly brilliant individual whose drive and determination have enabled him to seize a range of challenging opportunities, working on high-profile and sensitive engagements across the UK and in the Middle East. 

He joined us as an apprentice and has just been promoted to associate. Over the past year, he has led pivotal workstreams with key clients, delivered interactive presentations in schools across the UK, and has taken on complex tasks requiring excellent analytical and interpersonal skills.   

He is to be particularly commended for his contribution to a landmark engagement that resulted in him presenting to the Cabinet Office alongside PwC’s chairman. Humaid spoke with poise and confidence, captivating the room with stories from his work. This would be an extraordinary achievement for even a seasoned consultant, so to do so at the early stages of your career is simply outstanding. 

As a former apprentice, Humaid is keen to repay support he’s received and is now a fantastic champion for potential recruits from diverse and underprivileged backgrounds. He’s directly responsible for six new joiners into PwC so far, and continues to mentor people both within and outside the firm. 

Beyond client work, Humaid is hugely passionate about supporting the BAME community, and has also set up PwC’s Muslim Network in the North. The group holds social, educational and networking events, as well as doing charity work for local communities.  

Humaid has had a stand-out year in a highly competitive environment. He is a talented, exceptional young man with a bright future ahead.
