PwC reports receiving 800 applicants for 60 posts in the firm's post A-level recruitment scheme HEADstart.
As students contemplate their university careers, PwC said candidates were increasingly seeing direct entry to training after A-level as a viable alternative to higher education.
James Chalmers, board partner, strategy and talent, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP said:“We’ve no doubt that interest in schemes like ours is only going to grow over the next twelve months, following students’ recent experiences of budget cuts, rising debts and fewer places."
PwC reports that applications are 25% up for its HEADstart programme. A-level students are paid between £16,000 and £20,000pa.
