Pricewaterhouse-Coopers (PwC) has been voted top graduate employer for the fifth consecutive year in the Times Top 100 Graduate Employers list.
Ian Powell, UK chairman and PwC senior partner, said: “Each year we recruit more than 1,000 talented graduates into our business, reflecting our investment in people. It is a great accolade for our firm to be seen by graduates as providing an excellent business schooling and long-term career.”
Sonja Stockton, the firm’s UK head of student recruitment, added: “This year on campus we will be continuing to work with students with a particular focus on developing their employability through a number of events and activities.”
The ranking is based on interviews with final year students who graduated from university this summer. More than 15,000 students took part in the poll to find the UK’s most sought after employers.
PwC beat fellow consultants Deloitte, KPMG and Accenture to the top spot, with the NHS ranked fifth. Bankrupt bank Lehman Brothers polled number 56 in the list, which was completed over the summer.
