Accountancy firm PwC has announced plans to create 500 new jobs across the UK. The move is part of a plan to split its assurance practice into two divisions audit and risk assurance practice. The new jobs will be spread across the company's 25 UK offices, though there is no indication at this point when the new jobs are expected to be filled. The company has also announced that it will be increasing the amount it spends on technology and training of staff to an annual budget of GBP 30 million (€33.58 million).
