We want to treat everyone fairly and equally throughout our recruitment process. Therefore we would encourage you to disclose this within the Inclusion and Diversity section of your application. We want everyone to be able to perform at their best, therefore if there are any adjustments you feel would benefit you during the recruitment process, you can provide information within the relevant section of your application. We will also ask you to confirm if adjustments are needed before each stage of the process.

Question: How do I know what opportunities are open for applications?

You can visit our graduate, apprentice and undergraduate pages and click the 'search and apply' button. Although we don’t have closing dates, it is worth noting that we recruit on a rolling basis, which means we close routes when we have sufficient applications to fill roles available. It is therefore important that you submit your application sooner rather than later!

If you can’t see the opportunity you are interested in open, please register your interest through our Talent Community. Should the opportunity open, you will be notified.

Question: Can I apply to more than one country?

If you apply to an Apprenticeship role in the UK your application will only be considered for that office location.

Question: When is the deadline for Apprenticeship online applications?

KPMG recruits on a ‘rolling’ basis. This means that we don’t have a deadline for applications. However, some business areas and offices receive a large number of applications so we strongly advise you to apply sooner rather than later. The only exception to this is for applicants requiring a work permit, who need to submit their application by the April before the start date.

Question: Can I apply if I have a degree? (KPMG360° Digital)

For example, if you have a degree in computer sciences, you would not be eligible for the KPMG360˚ Digital apprenticeship programme however, you may still be eligible to apply for one of our Graduate programmes. In addition to this, if you don't meet the grade requirements for any of our Graduate programmes, you may still be eligible to apply to the KPMG360˚ Digital programme provided you meet the above criteria.
