Level of interest in PwC graduate scheme 'promising'

Published: Monday, 13 December 2010   Category: Banking and Finance

Top accountancy firm PricewaterhouseCoopers' (PwC) new graduate scheme has been inundated with applications from people looking for graduate jobs in London.

Around 8,000 students have applied for the 1,200 jobs on offer at the leading professional services firm, including 600 in the capital.

The level of interest represents a 112 per cent increase in application levels from last year.

As well as the 600 London-based positions, the company have created 200 internships and work placements for recent graduates.

Richard Irwin, the company's head of student recruitment, said the levels of interest in the recruitment scheme, also seen at university events, were "a promising start" to the jobs drive.

"Record attendance at our campus events suggests that there’s a much stronger determination amongst students to get a job or experience as early as possible," he added.

The graduate scheme launched in October 2010 and the company says by 2011 it will have employed 1,200 more graduates.
