Enjoy greater exposure
Why Consulting at KPMG?
In an ever-changing, increasingly complex world, we work shoulder-to-shoulder with clients to help them overcome the challenges they're facing today, as well as those they might face tomorrow.
Our focus is on adding value, right from day one, across a breadth of areas, such as Strategy, Risk & Regulatory and Management Consulting through to Cyber and Technology. We do that by immersing ourselves in our clients' organisations and applying fresh thinking to deliver the best possible outcomes.
In Consulting, we work across diverse industries and sectors, offering advice on how companies can grow with confidence, avoid unnecessary risk or deal with the unexpected – and plenty more besides. The pace of change in technology underpins all of this. It is disrupting and transforming organisations like never before, so we always think about how we can apply the most innovative, tech-enabled and data-led solutions to give our clients real value and competitive edge.
As a graduate with us, you can look forward to the intellectual stimulation that comes from solving complex problems and creating positive change for lots of different organisations. This is a structured graduate programme that will give you the right balance of client experience, responsibility, training and support.
Consulting here is built on collaboration. We bring together broad specialisms and deep expertise to give our clients "Connected Consulting". It means you can expect exposure to a wide range of projects, working alongside – and learning from – some of the brightest minds in business. You'll also benefit from more formal training, including support towards a professional qualification or accreditations relevant to the programme you join.
We're proud to say that, for the second consecutive year, we've been rated the No.1 Management Consultant in the Financial Times' rankings (they're based on the recommendations of clients and peers alike). Put simply, if you'd like to embark on a Consulting career in a firm that will give you the quality experiences you need to thrive, we can help you to carve out a long-term career and define where you want to take it next. The opportunities here are almost limitless.
