PricewaterhouseCoopers is 'top graduate employer'
Friday, 18 September 2009
The Times has released the latest rundown of its Top 100 Graduate Employers and professional services firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) has bagged the number one spot for the sixth year in a row.
Some 16,000 of those who have already found a graduate job since leaving university last year voted in the poll and the accountancy specialists were once again found to be the best employer in the country.
James Chalmers, head of strategy and talent for PwC, told the newspaper: "To be voted the top graduate employer in the UK for six years running by students is a fantastic recognition of our continued investment in universities, students and graduates."
Second place was taken by fellow financial company Deloitte, while supermarket Aldi, which offers a starting graduate job salary of £40,000 and a company car, jumped from fifth place to third.
PwC recently advised university leavers wishing to find employment this year that they must not be fussy about which sector they work in.
