Who are we looking for?

We don’t just look at your academic record or qualification, we also want to know about you. Diversity of experience, background and viewpoints are a key part of a safe and healthy work environment, and central to KPMG’s values.

We look for enthusiasm, a willingness to try new things, resilience, and thinkers who can bring a fresh perspective and communicate their ideas with passion. So, if you love to learn, have a curious mindset, and want to make a difference, we’d love to hear from you.

Of course, there are some eligibility criteria – some teams need specific qualifications or fields of study, and there are rules around citizenship/visa status.
