Be challenged and supported to deliver quality outcomes
Why Audit at KPMG?
Audit is the largest of our UK practices. Some of the world's biggest companies rely on us to provide independent insight, challenge and expertise. The work we undertake makes a meaningful difference to businesses and communities – it affects investment decisions and supports economic growth. As part of our Audit community, you'll be helping to build the confidence and trust that business and society need to thrive.
Our Audit teams deliver quality outcomes by working to the very highest auditing standards and provide businesses with the insights they need to navigate a continually evolving regulatory environment. Through this work, we’re also committed to helping to build sustainable organisations from an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) perspective. The work is challenging, but you’ll have the KPMG community at your side, empowering you to be at your best.
We want to lead the conversation when it comes to shaping the future of the profession. And given the scale and variety of our audit engagements in both the UK and globally, we are well placed to create this change. To better challenge assumptions and provide deeper insights, we also continue to invest in tech-enabled solutions, such as KPMG Clara, our progressive global collaboration and analytics tool.
As a KPMG Auditor, you’ll have the opportunity to work with some of the brightest minds in Audit, feed your curiosity and stretch your experience and skills across diverse engagements. In return for your commitment, we offer rewarding, long-term career paths in Audit, supported by continuous learning opportunities, to help you grow in your own way. Our dedicated Audit University will provide access best practice guidance whenever you need it.
At KPMG, you’ll find that we’re creating a tech-driven business to empower and equip our people to be outstanding in delivery, no matter where they work – through inspiring collaboration spaces and new technologies. In your role, you’ll work flexibly across your location region – at engagement sites, our offices and home.
