PwC remove their UCAS points criteria for graduate jobs

PwCHere at City Careers, we are always keeping an eye out for changes in recruitment practices. We have noticed that some graduate employers have started to be more flexible about their entry requirements, which has got to be good news for graduates. The latest of these is PwC who have removed their UCAS points criteria for graduate jobs. PwC have stated that they believed their old practice of requiring UCAS points resulted in a lack of diverse applications from graduates because this put people from poorer backgrounds at a disadvantage. Richard Irwin, Head of Student Recruitment at PwC, says: “We want to target bright, talented people and extend our career opportunities to untapped talent in wider pockets of society’. PwC has defended the new policy by asserting that it could “drive radical changes in the social mobility and diversity of the professional services industry.” Read more what PwC have to say here. Will be interesting to see how the other three in the Big Four respond, along with other key graduate recruiters…….
