A record 1,200 graduates will be joining PwC offices across the
UK this week.

PwC received 33,000 applications across its graduate, A Level and
internship programmes, of which 22,000 were competing for graduate
roles – double the number who applied last year.

A significant number of the full time roles
were offered to the firm’s interns, PwC head of student recruitment
Richard Irwin said.

The graduates will join the firm’s tax,
assurance, consulting, actuarial, legal, consulting and advisory
practices. This year’s intake will include 40 technology jobs for
the first time.
