More than 80 graduates and students have been recruited by the Birmingham office of PwC.
The 82-strong cohort will work predominantly in the firm's tax and assurance teams including graduate level roles, student business placements and undergraduate internships.
The professional services firm has recruited 62 graduates from universities across the country with half of these coming from West Midlands institutions.
Ten students have taken up work placements on the firm's undergraduate programme, three students are on full-time business placements and seven higher apprentices have also joined.
In addition, 20 students are participating in the Flying Start programme - a degree course run in conjunction with PwC, ICAEW, University of Nottingham Business School, University of Reading and Newcastle University.
Matt Hammond, regional chairman of PwC in the Midlands said: "Our biggest intake of graduates is in the autumn and we are very pleased to welcome such a large group this year.
"Our business is expanding in the region, particularly in the private business community and, as a result, we have over 100 roles in our Birmingham office this year.
"In addition, we have over 3o roles in the East Midlands and 19 in Milton Keynes, taking our regional total to over 150.
"Due to our continued growth in Birmingham, another 18 graduates will be starting in November and we'll be talking to many students in our region's universities over the coming months with a view to filling places for next year's intake."
Following PwC's decision to scrap UCAS scores as an entry criteria for its graduate roles, applications increased 15 per cent on the same period last year, the firm said.
Mr Hammond added: "The surge in applications since we changed our graduate recruitment criteria is an early indicator that efforts to attract students from wider pockets of society is working.
"However, recruitment standards remain incredibly high so students must consider their options early and be prepared to demonstrate their capabilities through the recruitment process."
