Being part of KPMG means being part of our vibrant community. This sense of community will be apparent from the moment you join us. Our colleagues come from incredibly diverse backgrounds, but all share a natural curiosity and a desire to work together.  You'll be encouraged to bring your own unique perspective, and we'll support you every step of the way to develop your talents and achieve your potential. 

What might a day in this job look like?

On our KPMG360˚ Programme, starting in autumn 2019, you'll have the chance to rotate around different business areas and teams, providing you with broad experience and insight into our firm, before you choose an area to specialise in. 

You could work as part of our Audit teams learning how to do bank reconciliations, develop your client communication skills within our Tax & Pensions teams, or build your business knowledge within our Advisory teams. This programme will last three or six years, depending on the career path you decide to take.

We'll give you access to KPMG employee networks, societies, and sports and leisure clubs, as well as the opportunity to get involved in volunteering activities that give back to communities.
