Life at KPMG

An organisation's culture can be difficult to define, however ask our people what makes KPMG different, and most will tell you the same thing: it's our open and friendly culture. Of course, it's also a performance-oriented culture. We recognise the hard work and achievements of our people in many different ways. We understand that talented individuals look to their careers for personal development and fulfilment, not just financial reward.

Full-time KPMG employees work 8 hours per day from 8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, plus one hour for lunch. We embrace and encourage flexible working so you can make your own choices about where, when and how you work. We work from three hubs: the office, client site and home. Depending on the work, you can choose what works for you.

KPMG has a structured training program that all graduates, independent of their business unit, will participate in as well as business specific training. All graduates are encouraged to participate in further KPMG learning and development programs to develop their careers.

Yes. We strongly encourage our people to undertake relevant professional qualification. We provide a range of support including study leave, exam leave and financial assistance.
