PwC recruits apprentices into business recovery for first time

PWC HAS RECRUITED apprenticeships into its business recovery services team for the first time.

The Big Four firm has expanded its Higher Apprenticeship recruitment to include business recovery in addition to tax, consulting and management consultancy. PwC will now hire 109 apprentices in total, an almost 10% increase on last year.

Students will join teams working on current cases as part of a two year training programme, during which they will gain knowledge of the industry and market, technical and leadership skills, as well as commercial awareness, while studying for a professional qualification accreditation.

Dan Schwarzmann, (pictured) head of business recovery services, PwC said: “As a firm we’re always on the lookout for talented people, irrespective of the career path they chose. This is an environment where those with the hunger to succeed will be given every opportunity to do so.

“The business recovery services team is about helping businesses recover first and foremost, whether or not an insolvency process is involved. It’s an incredibly exciting career, fast moving, commercial and innovative and on the front line of UK business growth and recovery.”

Since launching the Higher Apprenticeship, applications to the school leaver entry programmes have increased 43%. In February PwC received over 250 applications for the first 60 vacancies in the firm’s tax division.
