What does it mean to be a part of KPMG?

At KPMG, we do work that matters. You'll have the chance to bring your unique perspective, experiences and curiosity to a team that makes a meaningful difference to businesses, people and communities. Across many industries, we deliver independent insights that help some of the biggest organisations in the world to grow sustainably and thrive.

From the start, you’ll have the support of our KPMG community. Our teams are made up of inspiring colleagues, so every day will be an opportunity to learn from them and grow in your own way.

We want people from every walk of life, to join and build a career with us. In audit, our people come with a variety of degrees, experiences and backgrounds- you don’t need an accountancy degree to build a successful career in Audit.

Why join our Audit Graduate Programme?

Working in Audit means providing confidence in businesses, including big retailers, UK banks and multinational organisations. You’ll learn about the drivers and risks facing businesses, looking behind their numbers to ensure a fair and true reflection of their financial results. You could be speaking to chief operating officers about their systems or learning from industry leaders about the day-to-day of their operations.

You’ll be taking a step into a new career, and gaining real-world experience, but that doesn’t mean you won’t stop learning. Our people find their way into a career in Audit from a variety of backgrounds, so don’t worry if you think your degree won’t be a good fit.

As part of an Audit Graduate Programme, you’ll receive structured training and qualifications that include studying for the ACA professional qualification – so there’s no need to have a business or finance degree. Just be curious and bring your ambition to understand the businesses we audit, and you’ll fit in perfectly.
