What you will be doing
What is Audit?
Audit is KPMG’s largest practice in the UK, supporting many of the world’s largest organisations and helping to build trust in businesses and the economy. We examine organisations and ensure their published financial statements 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. We behave ethically, uphold high standards and build trust.
KPMG Audit Graduate Programmes
We audit some of the world’s biggest companies, who rely on us to provide independent insight and opinion, 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 globally recognised brands and multinational companies. It’s intellectually challenging work, but you’ll be benefiting from our investment in tech-enabled solutions and have our diverse Audit community by your side, providing the support you need to grow and thrive.
On this programme, you’ll have structured development opportunities and the chance to gain experience in different areas of the Audit practice. You’ll develop valuable skills, commercial understanding, and in-depth business knowledge, all of which will empower you to build an exciting and varied long-term career with us.
What you will get
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.
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.
Our firm’s hybrid working model balances the flexibility of working from home with the importance of collaborating and learning in offices or at client sites. We trust our people to be where our clients need them to be, with our client-facing colleagues working together in person as often as needed. You’ll be empowered by the technology that supports us to work flexibly and our collaborative office spaces, building friendships and shared experiences, innovating, and learning together.
