At KPMG, we provide Audit, Tax and Advisory, services to some of the world’s biggest businesses. And we believe that all business and solutions boil down to one thing: people. So whatever we do, we see people first. And our own people are at the heart of our continued success.

There’s no one type of person that succeeds at KPMG. It’s a massively diverse business, welcoming all kinds of personalities and characters, skills sets and, indeed, degree disciplines. If you thrive on responsibility, intellectual challenge, and variety, this could be just the place for you.

So what can you look forward to here? Exceptional training. Professional qualifications. Exposure to clients from day one. And tons of ‘real world, real time’ responsibility.

It’s a great place to learn and develop your skills. But it’s more than a fast-moving, technology-driven working environment – it’s a community you’ll feel a part of for the rest of your life.

And it’s not all work and no play. Whether it’s joining societies and sports teams or enjoying volunteering and secondment opportunities, KPMG is a place where you can really be yourself.

Audit focuses on finding definitive answers to some big questions. As experts in the field, we could be asked:

  • Does a business own its fixed assets? How much is its stock really worth?
  • Does a company’s record of its cash balance agree with the records of the bank?
  • What are the values of a company’s investments?
  • How effective are the company’s financial controls?
  • Does the company satisfy regulatory requirements?

The fundamental role of an auditor is defined as “reporting on whether the annual accounts show ‘a true and fair view’ of the company’s financial activity and position to its shareholders”. That’s what makes audit so challenging.

It’s possible for company employees to interpret accounting policies and present financial information so that their business is shown in the best light. That’s where audit comes in. Our job is to help ensure that the right accounting processes are applied and any irregularities in financial reporting are identified. As the industries and economic environments that our clients work in are constantly evolving, we need to stay one step ahead of any changes if we’re to understand the implications on their business.

It’s a complex area, with three Graduate Programmes available:

  • Audit Mandarin
  • Business Audit
  • Public Sector Audit
