What is Consulting?

Our Consulting teams immerse themselves in our clients’ business, applying sector knowledge and technology solutions to help companies grow and thrive. As a graduate on our Consulting programmes, we offer limitless opportunities to work on interesting projects and really make your mark. We offer programmes across a range of areas, such as Customer, Risk & Regulatory, People, Financial and Operational Transformation through to Actuarial.

KPMG Actuarial Graduate Programme

As expert advisors, our Actuarial team helps organisations to manage financial risk. It's work that makes a meaningful and positive difference for our clients.

Within the Actuarial Graduate programme, you could join us two different areas: Life Actuarial Services or General Insurance. In Life Actuarial Services you’ll learn how to provide advice to the Life Insurance industry, who in turn provide investment related products (such as workplace pensions) or protection products (such as critical illness cover). You’ll advise on various practical business issues including strategic planning, transactions and risk optimisation, and work with UK and overseas clients such as life insurance companies, reinsurance companies, venture capital firms, industry regulators, investment banks and retail banks.

As part of the General Insurance team, you might be working on start-ups and close downs of insurance businesses, transactions, risk modelling, capital management liability valuation and catastrophe modelling. On either option, you’ll work with some of the biggest companies in the UK and global insurance market.

This programme is highly technical and suited to graduates who are numerate, ambitious and able to communicate complex ideas. You’ll have the opportunity to gain the Actuarial qualification, do work that really matters and build a varied career.

Training and Benefits

With the KPMG community by your side, you’ll have the support to grow in your own way, gaining learning for a lifetime. You’ll have access to funded, relevant professional qualifications or accreditations and an extensive programme of internal training geared towards your career and personal development. On the Actuarial graduate programme, you’ll study towards the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) fellowship qualification, which is the highest level of qualification attainable with the institute.

We offer a competitive salary and a host of great benefits too, including 25 days’ holiday, study leave and a day off on your birthday. What’s more, you can take up to six days of time off to take part in volunteering initiatives.

What we look for

KPMG is a place where you can be yourself and give your best - whoever you are and whatever your degree background. We look at more than just your academic results and will also consider your strengths, values and motivations. See the specific programme page on our Careers Portal for entry requirements and our ‘How to Apply’ section for detailed application guidance.
