“We are looking for top calibre graduates with a track record of academic achievement who are commercially aware with strong communication skills and who want an exciting career in a professional services environment,” said Carmel O’Connor, HR Partner at PwC. “We support the personal and professional development of all graduates, offering outstanding training and secondment opportunities across PwC offices worldwide,” adding that the firm is encouraging applicants with non-business backgrounds to apply.

“The majority of our graduates come from various forms of accounting and business degrees, but we also encourage excellent graduates from other disciplines who desire a progressive career in business to apply."
