British legal and accounting services company PwC has announced plans to create 300 new jobs in the Financial Crime Unit at the company's competence centre in Gdańsk within the next two years. Established in 2012, the Financial Crime Unit (FCU) specialises in money laundry prevention. The expansion of the centre comes in response to the growing pressure put by regulatory and supervisory authorities on the compliance with the provisions on counteracting money laundering and financing of terrorism.

PwC operates in 158 countries and employs around 250,000 people worldwide. The company has been operating in Poland for 28 years and as of November 2018, operates two shared services centres (Katowice and Opole), a Competence Centre in Gdańsk and eight regional offices across the country.
