Which accountancy firm is best?

So who is the best accountancy firm to work for?

November 2016

Well, PwC was recently named the UK’s leading graduate employer for the 13th consecutive year in The Times ‘Top 100 Graduate Employers 2016–17’.
PwC remains the country’s largest private-sector employer of new graduates and plans to take on 1,500 in 2017. Up to half of these will go into the accountancy practice side. The rest will join PwC’s consulting, actuarial, tax, technology and legal businesses.
KPMG, Deloitte and EY all make into The Times’ top eight. Together the three will be recruiting 3,100 graduates next year.
However, when the UK’s top employers for school leavers was revealed one of the Big 4 accountancy firms didn’t even make it into the top 100.
Top of this list was Mercedes-Benz, followed by Schroders in second place. The best-placed accountancy firm was Smith & Williamson at number 15. Mazars came in at number 21 ahead of EY at 23. PwC just about scrapes into the top 50, at 49.
Crowe Clark Whitehill, MHA MacIntyre Hudson, RSM and Grant Thornton all make the list ahead of Deloitte, who came in at number 78. But we couldn’t find KPMG anywhere on in the top 100.
The list was compiled by AllAboutSchoolLeavers.co.uk.
