At KPMG, the people make the place. And what’s that place like exactly? In short, it’s one where everyone feels valued, and hard work is recognised and rewarded.
It’s also a place that’s growing. Since a number of European firms merged to form KPMG Europe LLP, they have become the largest fully-integrated accountancy firm in Europe, offering Audit, Tax and Advisory services to everyone from oil companies to music gurus. But it’s not just what KPMG does that’s important. It’s the way that we do it. The values don’t just live on a wall. They’re a way of life, underpinning the way KPMG works with clients and with each other.
So what can you look forward to at KPMG? Exposure to clients from day one and the chance to work on challenging projects. Consider it the perfect opportunity to find out more about working in professional services and discovering whether it is the right path for you.
Despite the focus on developing your skills, it’s not all work and no play. Whether it’s joining societies and sports teams or enjoying volunteering days, free lunches and social activities, KPMG is a fantastic place to start developing your technical and personal skills.
What do we look for in new recruits? Smart people. Switched-on thinking and, as a general rule, you’ll be expected to meet the following requirements:
- Minimum grade B GCSE Maths and minimum grade B GCSE English Language or equivalent
- Minimum of 320 UCAS Tariff points (or 26 UCAS points) or equivalent
- Minimum 2:1 degree in any discipline
Whether you’re looking to kickstart a successful career in business, develop your commercial insight or play a key role in the firm’s success, we have graduate opportunities available across our business in Audit, Tax & Pensions, Advisory and Central Services. Your voice matters to us, so make sure it’s heard.
Equality and Diversity
The reason why KPMG is so successful at working with all kinds of clients in all types of industries is relatively simple really. It’s because their people come from all kinds of backgrounds, and bring with them all types of skills, views and perspectives.
As you’ll quickly discover, KPMG is committed to creating the sort of inclusive workplace that treats everyone with respect, where people can be themselves and still achieve their potential, regardless of their background.
To that end, KPMG’s diversity strategy and approach are set by a dedicated team – the UK Diversity Leadership Group. To help keep diversity high on the agenda, KPMG has appointed a number of champions across the business.
There’s also a dedicated Diversity Department, which works alongside managers to implement diversity policies. And, to help ensure an inclusive culture is truly embedded within the firm, KPMG has set up Diversity Action Groups. These are made up of people from all of KPMG’s functions, working alongside their usual jobs to champion diversity throughout every aspect of their departments' work.
The success of KPMG’s diversity strategy speaks for itself. Amongst other things, the firm has been named in the Top Employer for Working Families’ inaugural list of best family-friendly employers. Appeared in The Times Top 50 places Where Women Want To Work, for the past five years. And ranked highly in the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index for lesbians, gay men and bisexual people.
Whatever your background, you’re guaranteed a warm reception at KPMG.
