Apprenticeship Programmes: KPMG360°
Our KPMG360° Apprenticeship programmes offer a practical way to build an exciting career, earn a salary, gain valuable work experience and be supported to achieve a professional qualification – providing the opportunity to not only build skills and confidence, but an exceptional future too.
The Programme is ideal if you’re not quite sure which area is right for you and gives you the opportunity to rotate around different business areas, offering you a broad insight into the firm before you choose to specialise. There'll be lots of opportunities to learn, meet new people and develop, with the chance to gain professional qualifications, following the study pathway that’s right for you and your career ambitions.
How is the programme structured?
KPMG360˚ consists of three levels: Foundation, Technician and Professional:
Foundation Level (Year 1)
Once you join the programme you will normally complete two placements in different business areas. The exact rotations vary between offices, determined by the availability of roles within each region. You’ll also complete the AAT Level Three Qualification.
Technician Level (Years 2 and 3)
Completion of the AAT Level four combined with longer placements will deepen your industry and technical knowledge.
Professional Level (Years 4, 5 and 6)
You will decide whether to specialise in Audit, Tax, Consulting or Deal Advisory and your learning pathway will reflect this decision. Where relevant, you will study towards further professional qualifications (qualifications could include ACA, CTA, CIMA).
Please note that the availability of business placements varies from office to office, depending on the roles available in each location.
