What is Audit?

Auditing is not just about numbers; it is about training bright young professionals to understand how businesses operate, how businesses seek out commercial opportunities, manage risks and how they are then accurately presented in a set of annual financial statements. It is for this reason that audit training is an excellent business foundation for students with an ambition to become extraordinary business advisors.

At KPMG, quality is critical to us in all that we do. We only recruit the brightest and the best people. You will learn and grow working alongside experienced and committed professionals as you undertake your higher level degree and your professional examinations.

We are at an exciting time in auditing, where technology is changing how we all work. At KPMG, we are at the forefront of adopting sophisticated tools to make sense of the explosion of data in our market. As an audit team member, you will learn how to integrate technology in the audit whilst providing clients with the highest quality insights into their businesses.

What we are looking for

KPMG are looking for bright and ambitious students that have strong motivation to work in professional services, specifically Audit. Students that want to bypass the full university experience but gain a higher level degree while working and earning money.

Minimum requirements are AAB in your A Level qualifications (or equivalent), preferably with Maths or Business as one of your subjects.

Students must be able to demonstrate ambition, career motivation, business acumen and have a desire to learn from this experience with KPMG. This will be assessed through an assessment day.
