Graduate jobs at PwC

 

PwC still has around 50 vacancies for graduates to start working in the firms assurance practice in April 2011. Graduates should apply online at www.pwc.co.uk/careers by the beginning of March, so they can complete the recruitment process in time for the April start date.

Richard Irwin, PwCs head of student recruitment, said:

"This year weve expanded vacancies at graduate level, and there are opportunities still open to start as early as April.

"With vacancies nationwide, students shouldnt limit their career options by only focusing on London vacancies. The level of training, support and career opportunity is the same for all our recruits and some of our biggest teams and clients are run from our regional offices in Manchester, Scotland, Newcastle, Reading, Bristol and Birmingham.

Graduates join PwCs biggest and longest established business with clients in the FTSE 100, private sector and small but fast growing companies, training towards an internationally recognised qualification in accountancy.Positions in the mainstream audit practice provide an opportunity to work within PwCs biggest and longest established business but graduates can opt to join one of the more specialist teams in risk assurance, public services, or pensions audit.

A record 118% increase in early application levels to PwC has secured over 600 jobs for students and graduates in offices across the UK.

The recruits will join the UKs largest private sector graduate programme in March, April and September across the firms assurance, advisory and tax businesses.

Some 600 full time roles remain nationwide, including new consulting roles that opened in regional offices this month. The firms second recruitment campaign for this university year gets underway shortly, with employability skills, commercial awareness and career coaching on offer to students online, in local offices and on campus.

Richard Irwin, PwCs head of student recruitment, said:

"Weve seen early applications to the firm skyrocket this year because students wanted to be first in line for the jobs as soon as they were created.

"Add to that a pool of graduates from 2009 coming back to the jobs market, and more employers reviving their recruitment, means its a perfect storm of interest and competition for graduate jobs.

"Weve created the largest ever number of jobs for students and graduates at the firm, so theres plenty of opportunities remaining. Graduates applying now could be working with us as early as April.

Applications to London and the South continue to dominate interest in the firms trainee positions, but with vacancies nationwide Irwin warns students not to short change their job options by focusing on London vacancies:

"You can kick start your career anywhere, so students need to make sure theyre not limiting their job prospects. Some of our biggest teams and clients are run from Manchester, Scotland, Newcastle, Reading, Bristol and Birmingham. The training, support and career opportunity is the same for all our recruits, but the cost of living can be far more realistic for graduates concerned about student debts.

PwC opened recruitment for over 1200 graduates, 400 interns and around 70 A Level students in early October. In total, over 1600 roles have been created, representing the highest ever recruitment levels on record for the firm.
