Our People: Nabil
Nabil joined KPMG after finishing his A-levels at college. He’s now specialising in the technology route of our KPMG360° Apprenticeship programme.
After finishing sixth form, I joined KPMG’s apprenticeship programme. I got a great overview of the company through each of my rotations.
I then applied to the KMPG360° Digital programme and have been working in Forensic Technology for the past 18 months. Thanks to KPMG’s work with BPP University, I’m completing a degree in Digital and Technology Solutions while working.
“I wanted to work here because of the collaboration. People work together to solve each other’s problems or client issues.”
Forensic Technology is more like white-collar policing. When investigations come up, for things like money laundering, we help clients with our powerful reviewing tools that help narrow down what data we need to analyse to find the problem.
Technology is a must, especially in our forensic department. Without such powerful tools there would be an increase in client cost and time and a decrease in KPMG’s productivity.
Working towards my degree has really helped with my work. We also do Relativity Certified Administrator (RCA) training as a department every week, which means I can assist with more in
After I’ve completed my degree, I see myself being promoted to Assistant Manager within Forensic Technology. Long term, I want to have the knowledge to assist in other KPMG departments as well.
The environment here is all about encouraging new ideas. No matter how junior you are, more experienced colleagues recognise you can provide useful knowledge and techniques from your training.
Your hard work gets recognised, whether it’s at the Encore awards – our internal recognition scheme - or during a team meeting. It encourages you to keep performing well. We also have a great social diary for the whole team with events like table tennis competitions. They give us a chance to catch up and boost morale.
At KPMG, you need to be open-minded and a good communicator. You should want to network and learn as much as you can about different people in the business.
