PricewaterhouseCoopers bucks graduate job trend

Published: Monday, 15 February 2010   Category: All Graduate job news

PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) has opened a new graduate job entry route this week which aims to target and assess candidate's capabilities beyond academic performance alone.

The PwC Inspired Talent scheme will examine an applicant's all-round quality through modified entry requirements and assessment as opposed to simply judging past academic achievements.

Candidates will have to complete online tests and submit a business case to demonstrate their skills outside of the classroom, which may be of interest to graduates who do not have a flawless academic track record.

Sonja Stockton, head of recruitment at PwC, said: "We are targeting truly exceptional talent from all backgrounds and extending the reach of career opportunities with PwC to a wider pool.

"It is getting harder for employers to distinguish between the mass of degree qualifications in the jobs market at the moment. People develop at different stage of academic life and those that demonstrate exceptional drive, capacity and entrepreneurial spirit can have great careers with us. We've no doubt that we will discover real gems."
