Accounting giant PricewaterhouseCoopers is looking to meet the increased Asian demand for financial services pros by adding 10,000 new jobs in the region over the next five years. The new hires are set to join PwC's 10,000 employees already based in mainland China and Hong Kong, where portions of its advisory and consulting businesses are based.
PwC's current Asian operations include advising and consulting practices for M&A, corporate finance and restructuring, and financial due diligence. The growth will be centralized in the firm's advisory arm. Specifically, the firm will add 2,000 fresh graduates to their Asia-Pacific ranks in 2011, and will more than double its headcount in its Guangzhou, China, location, bringing in 650 staffers to fill its newly expanded downtown office space.
