Accounting and consulting graduate jobs up for grabs with top firms

Published: Wednesday, 18 April 2012   Category: All Graduate Jobs News

The international accounting and consulting firms Deloitte and PwC are offering a large amount of graduate opportunities as part of their overall recruitment process. It is encouraging news for a graduate jobs sector that could do with a boost.


“The calibre of graduate applicants this year has been unprecedented, which reflects the strength of our business and of the region as a whole,” said Jane Boardman, Deloitte's partner in charge of talent in the region.

The firm has recruited 63 trainees at its North West offices - with 54 new graduate positions in the Manchester office alone. Future graduates working in Deloitte will work across all service areas, from audit to corporate tax.

“I am confident that the people we have recruited will have a long and successful future at Deloitte, and I am very much looking forward to seeing their skills and careers develop and flourish,” added Boardman.


“The massive increase in applications we've received this year shows that students are back in the game. They are realising that despite many saying otherwise, there are jobs out there with top notch training schemes and excellent prospects,” stated Nick Boden, senior partner on PwC's Manchester office.

PwC Manchester’s offices recently recruited up to 43 graduates and 12 school leavers from a group of 1200 new starters.

The firm said that North applicants faced high competition, doubling the number who applied last year.

“We held our nerve during the recession and continued to invest in graduate recruitment. That decision has paid off as we are seeing some exciting opportunities emerge despite the fragile state of the economic recovery,” commented Martin Heath, Head of the assurance practice in Manchester.

Both companies are also within the latest top ten ranking of the 2011 most attractive businesses. Have you ever considered looking for graduate jobs within these two organisations?
