PwC today said that it will no longer just look for new recruits with a first or 2:1 degree.
“Talent and potential is determined by more than academic grades,” PwC said, adding it was removing the requirement for all its graduate roles, internships and placements in order to open up opportunities for more people and improve social mobility.
“Whilst academic achievement has its place, for far too many students there are other factors that influence results,” said Ian Elliott, chief people officer at PwC.
“This move isn’t primarily about attracting more applications but opening our roles to students from a broader range of backgrounds, including those from lower income households,” he added.
