Life at KPMG for graduates

KPMG is a place where the curious come together. A place where you’ll enjoy diverse challenges and bounce ideas with bright minds to help to deliver innovative approaches.

Wherever you join us – in Audit, Tax & Pensions, Deal Advisory, Consulting, Technology and Business Services – you’ll find yourself in a stimulating environment. One where disruptive technologies are embraced. One where collaboration is a way of life. One where your contribution can make a real difference to our colleagues, clients and communities.

Being part of KPMG means being part of a community of talented people. Our colleagues have incredibly diverse backgrounds and you’ll be encouraged to bring your own unique perspective. We’ll value your ideas, enthusiasm and curiosity.

You’ll also be encouraged to be innovative in your thinking. Rather than reacting to emerging trends, we anticipate them. Rather than being afraid of disruptive technologies, we embrace them. For example, we’re currently harnessing the power of artificial intelligence and predictive analytics to empower our clients like never before. It all adds up to an exciting environment.

People like you are at the heart of our success, so we’ll make sure you’re empowered at every turn. Whether it’s the training and development, support networks or the international opportunities, we’ll bring out your best.
