PwC in Jersey has recruited 19 new faces, including home-grown talent, who have embarked on a three-year training programme to gain professional qualifications.
Of the 19 recruits, 12 are young Islanders, fresh from completing further and higher education and setting out out on their chosen career paths. They are: Charlie Dunningham, Charlotte Sampson, Helena Eeles, Jacob James, Katharina Cole, Lisa Luce, Matthew Neal, Milly Thomas, Sam Noel, Will Durell, Sean Maclachlan and Jack Mills.
A further seven recruits have moved to Jersey from the UK and overseas: Abigail Farrer, Ed Claxton, Katerina Cervenkova, Pierre Ebert, Stefan James, Thomas O’Neill and Zohaib Zafrullah.
Brendan McMahon, Senior Partner at PwC Channel Islands said such a significant intake of graduates and school-leavers demonstrated that PwC continued to see the long-term value of investing in young local talent.
“The quality of our people is at the heart of our growth strategy and is critical to supporting the growth ambitions of our clients. While the business environment remains challenging, it is important that we continue to invest in talent so we can meet the future demands of clients and give them the confidence they need for the years ahead. I'm really pleased to welcome such a strong group of individuals to our teams in the Channel Islands,” he said
The "Class of 2014" also includes 16 new recruits in Guernsey.
Earlier this year, PwC nationally was included in the Sunday Times Best Big Companies to Work For survey and the only “Big Four” firm to be ranked in the top 25. In addition, it was also a record-breaking 11th year that PwC was ranked number one in the Times Top 100 Graduate Employer of the Year category, as well as retaining the Times Graduate Employer of Choice in Accounting for the 15th consecutive year.
