KPMG Audit

Why Audit at KPMG?

The largest of our UK practices, in Audit we undertake work that affects investment decisions, inspires confidence in public sector expenditure and supports economic growth. Some of the world’s biggest companies rely on us to provide independent insight, challenge and high-quality audit expertise. Today, more than ever in disruptive times, audit is a function needed by society, and in the future, so we can capitalise and grow.

Audit is about examining organisations and ensuring their published accounts provide a ‘true and fair’ view of their financial position. As an auditor, you’ll help to build the confidence and trust that business and society need to thrive. If you’d like to get under the skin of a variety of organisations, this is the right place to be.

Like the companies we audit, we’re having to adapt. This means new working patterns, physical adjustments in our offices and new ways of interacting with our colleagues as well as the organisations we work with – we are harnessing technology to help underpin this change.

We deliver quality outcomes by working to the highest standards. As part of that, we continue to invest heavily in tech-enabled solutions. Machine learning, AI and advanced data analytics not only allow us to offer deeper and higher quality audits, but also a better user experience for our auditors. At the heart of this investment is KPMG Clara, our progressive global collaboration and analytics tool, evolved to help deliver even greater consistency and collaborative working.

As a graduate here, you’ll have the resources and support you need to handle each audit engagement with confidence. You’ll work as part of a team and may spend time on site at the companies you’re auditing, in virtual or hybrid forms of audit delivery. From the start, you’ll be working on complex projects alongside some of the brightest minds in business and benefit from learning every day. You can also look forward to thorough ongoing internal and external training – on most of our programmes, you’ll study for the ACA or the CA qualification.

We know everyone’s different and likes to learn in different ways, so we offer two different routes to your qualification. Some people opt to have a blend of work and study over three years (via our Empowered route); others prefer to frontload most of the exams in their first year (through our Intensive route).

Join us, and you can expect to carry out work that’s both challenging and rewarding. There’s also a real sense of community across our Audit team – we’re collaborative and value the different perspectives and ideas that contribute to our shared goal of delivering quality work. You’ll have the support of your fellow new joiners and our more experienced audit professionals will be on hand to guide you every step of the way.
