At KPMG, the people make the place. And what’s that place like exactly? In short, it’s one where everyone feels valued, and hard work is recognised and rewarded.
It’s also a place that’s growing. Since a number of European firms merged to form KPMG Europe LLP, we have become the largest fully-integrated accountancy firm in Europe, offering Audit, Tax and Pensions, and Advisory services to everyone from oil companies to music gurus.
But it’s not just what we do that’s important. It’s the way that we do it. Our values don’t just live on a wall. They’re a way of life, underpinning the way we work with clients and with each other.
Our people come to us from all kinds of backgrounds and degree courses. We wouldn’t want it any other way. And that’s why we’ve always been very open-minded about the type of graduates we recruit. Graduates with a 2:1 in any degree subject, from Archaeology to Engineering, Technology to Zoology, (and almost everything else in between). What’s most important is your enthusiasm and motivation.
We have graduate opportunities across Audit, Tax and Pensions, and Advisory, as well as a range of Vacation Programmes, including Placements, Internships and Gap Year Programmes.
KPMG has one of the largest Advisory practices in the world, and this is a major growth area of our organisation. By combining specialist skills across the globe, we provide objective advice and action, and help create and preserve value. We believe this is what sets us apart from advisors with a generalist approach, and as a result we’re continually gaining market share. We have programmes within Advisory within Management Consulting – IT Advisory and Risk Consulting – Technology.
So what can you look forward to at KPMG? Exposure to clients from day one. Working on challenging projects. And if you’re studying for a professional qualification, there’s a fantastic support network that includes a mentor and generous study leave.
Despite the focus on qualifications, it’s not all work and no play. Whether it’s joining societies and sports teams or enjoying volunteering days, free lunches and secondment opportunities, KPMG is a fantastic place to start developing your technical and personal skills.
In addition to offering the highest level of support backed by the most senior people in our business, you’ll find we use a variety of training methods too, including a full suite of e-learning products. These allow you to study at our own pace and enjoy the flexibility to take real ownership of your studies.
We also spread your exams over the full three years of your training agreement. This means you won’t be studying constantly, allowing you time to gain valuable, relevant work experience before you attempt the final, most technically challenging exams. We also have the largest, dedicated, full-time professional qualification training team of the Big 4, and you’ll quickly discover that everything we do is intended to help you fulfil your potential and get you through your exams first time.
We think KPMG is a great place to start your career, and we’re sure you will too.
