April intake of graduates 'brings diversity' to PwC
The latest set of graduates to join Big Four firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) have brought more diversity to the company, it has said.

These new recruits started work in April, as part of a new intitiative by the company, which means graduates can now start with PwC in the spring or, following tradition, the autumn, reports Consultant News.

While a third of the new starters graduated from university in June 2007, 43 per cent are aged 25 or over.

Sonja Stockton, head of student recruitment at the firm, stated that some applicants were looking for a career change.

"By launching an intake in the spring we had hoped to appeal to those seeking to break with the traditional pattern of starting work straight after graduation or deferring for an entire year," she remarked.

PwC was named as the top graduate employer by the Times recently, the fourth year the company has received the accolade.
