All Graduate job news
Graduate job hunters do not necessarily have to possess degrees relating to accountancy in order to join PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), it has been suggested.
The 'Big Four' firm revealed that it recruited 153 graduates in its spring intake, of which 66 per cent emerged from university with qualifications in arts, science and humanities.
Sonja Stockton, head of recruitment at PwC, is now calling on university leavers to get in touch with the company as it plans to take on hundreds more graduates in September and October.
"PwC is open to graduates from all sorts of disciplines. The important thing is skills and experience," she said in an interview with the Independent.
"Make sure you check our website. We put a lot of effort into making sure the role and necessary skill requirements are clear, so that you can make a really good application."
Ms Stockton also revealed that a third of the company's spring intake were graduates from ethnic minority backgrounds.
PwC employed over 163,000 people in 151 countries, according to its accounts for the 2009 financial year.
