KPMG Governance Risk & Compliance Services (GRCS) Graduate Programme

On our GRCS Graduate Programme, you’ll learn how businesses operate, what risks they face and how major decisions are made. You’ll develop and refine specialist business and accounting skills whilst improving our clients’ governance, risk management and control environments.

Our GRCS teams provide insight and commercial recommendations that support clients in achieving their business objectives, by conducting in-depth analysis and assessments of data and business processes. Our services include Internal Audit and Risk Assurance, as well as Governance, Risk and Compliance.

Internal Audit is all about independent assurance that an organisation's risk management, governance and internal control processes are operating effectively. You’ll learn how to apply a combination of assurance and consulting skills to look beyond financial risks and financial statements, and consider wider issues such as the organisation's reputation, growth, environmental factors, and the way it treats its employees.

As part of our Governance, Risk and Compliance teams, you’ll help organisations in areas such as governance and risk services, internal controls transformation and internal controls compliance services. The key is to help organisations identify and then effectively mitigate the risks that could prevent them from meeting their strategic objectives.

We’ll empower you to do work that makes a positive difference to the businesses and communities we serve, as you grow in your own way and build the career you want.
