Training contract rise
25 March 2019
The number of trainees on contracts with the UK’s top 75 accountancy firms is pushing on 20,000, says new Research from Accountancy Daily.
The study found that there are currently 19,887 trainees studying to become qualified accountants, tax advisers or a consultant at these top firms. This represents a 4% increase on the same study last year.
The Big 4 firms account for 12,884 of the total, with PwC increasing its student numbers by 18% to 4,275, which represents 20% of the total for the top 75. Louise Farra told Accountancy Daily: “Student recruitment is the bread and butter of the firm. We will be taking on 1,300 graduates and 200 school leavers for this coming year, with about 60% of these roles outside London. And we have seen large growth in opportunities around technology.”
