PwC voted best place for graduates

PwC adds another graduate award to its growing collection this year

PricewaterhouseCoopers has scooped the top employer award for graduates for
the sixth year running.

The UK’s biggest private sector employer won The Times High Fliers
Top Graduate Employer of the year award, voted for by the students, and earlier
in 2009 was also voted Top Accountancy Employer for the tenth consecutive year.

PwC recruited around 1,000 new staff and has expanded its internship
programme to include international positions and created a summer business
academy.

Ian Powell, chairman and senior partner at PwC, said: “To be voted by the
students and graduates themselves as top employer for six years in a row is
fantastic recognition of our continued investment in universities, students and
graduates.”

The firm, which received a 48% increase in applications in 2009, was also
voted Top Finance Employer this year which is the first time an accountancy firm
has won the award. The gong usually goes to companies in the investment
management and banking sector.
