KPMG graduate programmes – open for business
08 August 2018
KPMG in the UK has opened applications for its 2019 graduate programmes for the audit and tax, pensions and legal services practices. Roles are available throughout the UK from Aberdeen to Southampton – and graduates from all subjects are invited to apply.
In 2018 the firm welcomed 620 new audit graduates into the firm, that’s a 36% increase on the class of 2017. While in London the number of audit graduates increased by 30%, regionally there was a 42% increase, highlighting the firm’s commitment to audit across the UK, not just in the capital.
KPMG’s head of audit, Michelle Hinchliffe, said: “Being an auditor requires a specific set of skills, but not all of these may be what you might typically imagine."
She went to say that the modern auditor is part accountant, part detective and part data scientist. KPMG also wants someone with natural curiosity, a degree of independent thinking and a keen eye for detail.
Hinchliffe emphasised: “Those who love technology should also take a close look at a career in audit. We are on the lookout for expert coders, data analysts and tech specialists. For those who don’t have those skills yet, but want to learn we provide world class on-the-job training in our growing Data Science Centre of Excellence.”
