Grads say PwC most desired place to work

Big Four prominent as graduate favourites

PwC was named the most desired company to work for by UK graduates in the
Guardian UK 300.

The Big Four firm moved up from second place last year to first on the
Trendence
survey.

Last year’s winners Deloitte came fifth with Ernst & Young moving up from
fourth to second.

“Some organisations will be over the moon at their rankings; others may be
relatively disappointed. However our robust methodology ensures that the results
are an accurate reflection of organisations’ employer brands as perceived by
students,” said Trendence’s UK account director Jo-Anne Coppock.

“This means some employers clearly still have plenty of work to do if they’re
to recruit the graduates they really need!”

KPMG fell to 21, having previously entered the listing at ten last year. They
were followed by HM Revenue & Customs who moved up from 40 last year to seal
the 33 spot.

Grant Thornton moved up three places to 165 this year compared to last year
and Baker Tilly came in at 308 narrowly missing out on the official listing.

Walt Disney was the highest new entry ranking at 23, and the National Audit
Office fell 38 places landing at 114.
