Apprentice of the Year award, at the Management Consultancies Association (MCA) Awards 2023
Ranjodh Bains has been shortlisted for the Apprentice of the Year award at the Management Consultancies Association (MCA) Awards 2023, due to his strong performance during his year placement year.
Ranjodh’s outstanding work ethic, passion and talent have made a real impact at PwC. He cares deeply about his firm, demonstrating relentless commitment and attention to detail…
“...He delivers high-quality solutions for clients, with his programming skills meeting a very high standard, and he’s shown maturity in his ability to bring together business and technology in his project management and assurance work.”
Ranjodh’s strong performance has already been recognised by the Department for Education, as he won the Degree Apprentice of the Year 2022 Award for Yorkshire and the Humber at the National Apprenticeship Awards.
Ranjodh regularly supports, mentors, and trains people. He has a true passion for coding and adding value to businesses. He recognises he has just begun his consulting journey, but can’t wait to see what learning, development and successes the next few years will bring.
PwC’s purpose is to solve important problems, and Ranjodh believes the firm is one of the best places to be able to do that. He’d love nothing more than to make a difference to the world through his work, with the hope that it could one day have a lasting impression that improves the lives of us all.
I'm delighted to be up for another award! I feel incredibly honoured to have been selected as one of the top 8 individuals in this category from out of over 80 management consultancy firms in the UK that are part of the MCA. It's a genuine privilege.
