COVID-19 Update

In light of the ever-changing COVID-19 situation, it is our priority to protect the health and wellbeing of our colleagues, candidates and the operation of our firm at this challenging time. As you would expect, we are closely monitoring the situation and taking a precautionary approach, as we continue to evolve and adapt in response to the COVID-19 status in the UK.

Our application process is now a fully virtual process, and as applicants progress through each stage of the process our Student Recruitment team will be in touch with them to explain the next steps.

About Apprenticeships at KPMG

If you’re a parent, carer, teacher or careers advisor, you have an important role to play in helping people to make the right choices about their future. And while university might seem like the obvious next step, an apprenticeship can offer just as many opportunities – especially here at KPMG.

We offer a range of programmes across our firm in specific areas such as Digital Technology, KPMG Business Services, Audit and Software Engineering. On every programme, we offer structured training and support towards professional qualifications – we even cover the tuition costs. Some programmes involve studying for a degree, fully-funded by KPMG. As well as that, all of our apprentices earn a salary and have access to our excellent range of benefits.

Ours is a collaborative culture offering candidates the chance to be part of a supportive and welcoming team. Our apprentices also join The Academy – a unique learning community for both apprentices and graduates. It’s an environment in which people can quickly grow their networks, learn and develop.

Put simply, an apprenticeship here offers the best of both worlds. The chance to earn while they learn. Exploring our business, apprentices will gain the skills and experience needed to become a truly successful professional.
