Big Four training contracts increase in Ireland

Recruitment projections for the Big Four in Ireland have returned to pre-recession levels with training contract positions increasing 36% year-on-year.

The Chartered Accountants Ireland said while larger practices, such as KPMG, PwC, Deloitte and Ernst & Young, have the largest numbers of training vacancies other firms across Ireland are also currently recruiting more graduates.

Of the 3,900 positions reportedly on offer at the GradIreland graduate careers fair at the Royal Dublin Society, 915 vacancies were with accountancy practices. Five out of the top eight recruiters were chartered accountancy firms.

“This year’s significant rise in graduate recruitment indicates that Ireland’s leading financial advisers predict increased levels of activity to justify greater recruitment, and this bodes well for the Irish economy into the future,” Chartered Accountants Ireland president John Hannaway said.
