    Could anyone let me know when applications for Audit are due to open for 2017 entry?

    I've been looking around online and have got the impression that it's:

    Deloitte: 18th July 2016
    PwC: Probably early September
    EY: Probably early August
    KPMG: I have no idea

    If anyone knows when they opened last year, I'd be very grateful

    pwc - first week of september
    ey - first week of august
    kpmg - last week of august

    mind you this is based on my experience from a couple of years ago, however, I don't think it's changed recently when thinking back to my friends applying last year

    Hey everyone, I've noticed PwC's applications for the assurance stream seem to have opened up already in the last couple of weeks. Anyone with any new information on this?

    I'm really not sure, sorry. I'm at a Scottish uni and applied for a Scottish city, for which the application link was sent directly to my email.

    All of them recruit c.1000 grads every year across all of their offices in the UK. There are indeed some vacancies left for 2016 in a range of streams.

    Do you have any idea why there are quite a few still open? I would've thought they would have been filled up by now.

    They haven't found the right people yet I guess so they keep on holding assessment centres. I'm waiting to be invited to a Big 4 AC myself but there is a high chance that I'll miss the 2016 entry since the intake is about to close soon.

    To be honest, nothing really to hide. I'm international and have most of my education, experience back home. Was just wondering how far they'd go in such checks. Maybe go secretly to my former employer or something especially cos the employer was a small business. And maybe i should give them a heads up.

    Was only curious. Do you have any idea how it works?

    At least for those who use Hire Right to do background screening, they'll request a contact and then contact them to verify you worked there when you said you did.
