Work placements give you the chance to see if professional services is right for you. They help you truly understand our business and get to know our firms' clients, people and culture. Work placements are also a great way to experience the business world, gain real commercial skills and have direct client contact.

During a KPMG work placement, you’ll benefit from the same high level of attention we give all our people, including mentor support and feedback from a performance manager. From day one, you’ll learn and discover what it’s like to be part of a professional team. You’ll be given the support and tools you need to explore which business areas that match your skills and interests. There will also be opportunities to join social and community activities with your colleagues, giving you the chance to get to know the people you work with.

Some of our member firms also participate in the Global Internship Program. This four-week internship is designed to give students genuine and valuable insight into the global business environment.

Our work placements vary from country to country and range from year-long to short-term during university vacation time. You can also search our graduate database for internship opportunities or visit the website of the country you are interested in joining.
