PwC UK has appointed 61 partners.
The partners, among which there are 11 women, have been appointed across all of the firm’s service lines and 39 of them will take up their positions from 1 July.
PwC chairman Ian Powell said the recruitment of the partners is part of the firm’s plans to recruit more partners from a wide range of skill backgrounds. The Big Four firm will also continue to focus on recruitment in general over the course of the rest of the year.
“This year, we will bring on board around 2,200 people at student, intern, graduate and experienced levels. Earlier this month, we also announced that we will be the first firm to offer a Higher Apprenticeship in professional services, with 60 places available starting this summer and autumn,” Powell said.
