“I had studied both Accounting and Economics, so working for a professional services firm seemed the obvious choice for me. It has an exceptional reputation all around the world. I also enjoyed the interview process and was drawn by how nice and welcoming everyone was.
“I’ve had a lot of great professional development opportunities since I joined – particularly in terms of training. And it hasn’t just been formal training: I’ve been able to learn so much from just talking to my colleagues.
“I was struck by how much support there is for new joiners too: the Directors, Partners and Senior Managers go out of their way to help you. I was also able to get a lot of early experience and responsibility, and that was important for my ongoing development.
“Because of KPMG’s global reach, I’ve had a lot of opportunities to use my German, Chinese and English language skills.”
“Because of KPMG’s global reach, I’ve also had a lot of opportunities to use my German, Chinese and English language skills. I would like to keep pushing that and use those skills to work with bigger clients around the world. Aside from that, my main aim is just to keep growing my skills and responsibilities at KPMG.
“I’m really proud of working here. We’re well respected: clients rely on our work and trust our judgement and experience. I’m also proud of our people – they’re the ones who make the difference and uphold our image. I’m particularly proud of my team too – of how hard we work and the impact we have on the firm.
“At KPMG we’re defined by our working culture – our collaborative approach – so you’ll need to be a real team player who can cooperate with everyone.”
