PwC drops out of welfare employment tender

A TENDER for a government programme to bring the unemployed back into work saw PwC drop out of the bidding, reports suggest.

Sources claimed that PwC was originally part of the bidding process for the Work Programme – a welfare-to-work system – however, it dropped out after deciding it was not commercially viable, reported The Telegraph.

The firm had also lost out on subcontracting roles offering training skills in the south-east.

PwC declined to comment.
