Management Consulting is a priority area for our Advisory business – and invaluable to our clients' businesses too, as we help them to address some of their hottest topics. We focus on helping clients add lasting value and enhance their performance by delivering sustainable improvements to their business. 

Our Financial Transformation Graduate Programme within Management Consulting focuses on working with clients to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the Finance function and generate real insights to help deliver value to the business. Through our core propositions we work to provide our clients with fact-based insights, utilising leading technology solutions to transform Finance functions. The key drivers of change for our clients are regulatory reform, cost reduction and finance optimisation, and our service offerings reflect this demand. 

As part of the team you will work with a range of clients including some of the most well-known and largest organisations in the world, spanning all sectors and industries. A key part of this role will be reacting to current industry issues and challenges; working with clients to understand the external pressures on their Finance functions and implementing and executing on their future finance strategies to enhance and grow the business. The Finance Transformation programme will give you the opportunity to work across the team’s core propositions: Enterprise Performance Management, Powered Finance, Intelligent Automation, Finance Systems and Data, Finance Function Transformation and Regulatory Change.

We welcome difference which is why we’re actively looking to attract and develop people from all walks of life.

Additional important information

As a large part of our work is done at our clients’ offices, we go where we’re needed – down the road, in another part of the UK or even on the other side of the world! Like our clients, we are having to adapt. This means new working patterns, physical adjustments in our offices and new ways of interacting with our colleagues as well as the organisations we work with.

Whilst you will apply to a specific office location, you will likely be required to work flexibly across the region, at KPMG offices, client sites and with varying levels of home working.
