What we look for

At KPMG, attitude is every bit as important as ability. Being a team player, having passion for what you do and a desire to continuously improve will take you far. If you love to learn and sincerely want to make an impact, you’ll feel at home from day one.

Independent thinking is essential. We want interns that can look at a problem from a variety of angles. You’ll need to be prepared to challenge assumptions and bring new perspectives to our clients' business.

KPMG is much more than an accounting firm. We provide Audit, Tax, Deals and Legal services across a wide range of industries, government and not for profit sectors.

While we are probably best known for the work we do with top-tier clients, we also provide services tailored to meet the unique needs of mid-sized, fast growing and family owned businesses. We do this through KPMG Enterprise.

KPMG Enterprise is a rapidly expanding part of our business where you get to work with a diverse range of exciting businesses. Because of the size of the clients, you get better exposure to the whole company, CEOs included. Which you just wouldn’t get with our larger corporates.

We recruit across a range of degree disciplines, skills, abilities and backgrounds. We want diversity, commitment and ambition. We value innovative ideas and we're interested in you and your unique take on the world.
