KPMG in the UK is part of a global network of member firms that offers Audit, Consulting, Deal Advisory, Tax & Law and Technology services. Through the talent of over 15,000 people, we turn insights into opportunities, making a positive difference for our clients and the communities we serve.
What is Audit?
Audit is the largest of our UK practices and our teams provide independent insight, challenge, and high-quality audit expertise to organisations of all shapes and sizes. Put simply, our work in audit is about examining organisations and ensuring their published accounts provide a ‘true and fair’ view of their financial position. Through this work, we’re also committed to helping to build sustainable organisations from an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) perspective. The work we do helps to build trust in the economy and supports companies as they grow, making a meaningful difference to the businesses and communities we serve.
KPMG Audit Graduate Programmes
We audit some of the world’s biggest companies, who rely on us to provide independent insight, challenge and high-quality audit expertise. As a graduate trainee, you’ll have the opportunity to work on complex audit engagements, from big retailers to UK banks and multinational companies. It’s intellectually challenging work, but you’ll have our diverse Audit community by your side, providing the support you need to grow and thrive.
On this programme, you’ll study for the ACA qualification and have the chance to gain experience in different areas of the Audit practice. You’ll develop valuable skills, commercial understanding and in-depth industry knowledge, all of which will empower you to build an exciting and varied long-term career with us in audit.
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 Audit graduate programme, you’ll study towards the ACA qualification.
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.
