PwC is inviting 150 graduates to join its consulting practice through its new fast-track recruitment programme 05/04/2013
The professional services firm, which is a member of the financial 'big four', is accepting applications this week for 50 of the available places.
The new scheme shortens the application process from an average of eight weeks to one, with applicants required to complete a series of online tests before making it to the next stage.
If successful, applicants will attend a one-day assessment process led by the firm's growing consulting practice, with formal interviews taking place a week later.
Graduates who miss out on the initial vacancies can re-apply later in the year when 100 more positions are set to be offered.
Head of consulting, Ashley Unwin, said, 'For the third year in a row we have expanded graduate vacancies in the consulting practice, and the investment is paying off in terms of the quality of people we're attracting.
'Opening a fast-track recruitment scheme means we speed up the identification of talented students, without compromising on the quality. We like to challenge people from day one, and this is a new way of testing people's ability to hit the ground running.'
PwC is forecast to employ 1,200 students and 400 interns this year, and is one of the largest graduate recruiters in the private sector. It has seen a 110% increase in applications for its consulting graduate scheme over the last three years, matching business growth of 50% over the same period.
