Big Four audit firm PwC (PricewaterhouseCoopers) India is set to hire 10,000 people over the next 3-4 years, according to chairman Sanjeev Krishan, PwC India. The hiring is on the back of a strong growth momentum driven by the rebounding of the Indian economy after the second wave of COVID-19.
“Looking at the scale at which we are growing and our confidence in the future, this year we had nearly 100 partner and executive director promotions. I expect our hiring at both people and partner levels to continue at an enhanced pace. We aspire to be a 25,000-strong firm in four years. A large part of the hiring will be in the advisory practice – tech and management consulting, and risk and deals,” says Krishan.
In 2021, PwC launched a new growth strategy called ‘The New Equation’, wherein the firm would invest over ₹1,600 crore in its India practice over a five-year tenure based on client needs and changes in the business landscape.
Krishan says that the firm wishes to deliver businesses that focus on digital transformation in cloud, analytics, and emerging technologies. The central belief of the new strategy is to build trust, delivering sustained outcomes.
Being one of the first MNCs to set up business in India, the firm is planning to start its 150th anniversary celebrations soon.
