More hiring at a Big Four firm is underway.
PricewaterhouseCoopers will hire 400 employees in North Texas over the next year, the managing partner of the office, Tom Codd, told Dallas Business Journal. Most of the hires will be in Dallas, where PwC currently has 1,400 people. The rest will hole up in Fort Worth, where PwC employs 100.
Revenue at the firm increased 21.5% in the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2011, and the firm is still hiring to meet its goal of bringing on 40,000 people by the end of June 2012, FINS reported in February.
In an interview earlier this year with Paula Loop, U.S. and global talent leader, Loop said the firm wants to hire accountants who can help financial services clients navigate new regulatory issues stemming from legislation like the Dodd-Frank Act.
