Our Forensic team helps clients to protect their businesses by reducing reputational risk and commercial loss. Combining accounting investigation, technology and industry skills, we come in where facts and figures don’t agree, or where behaviour doesn’t comply with expectations or regulations. Through investigations and compliance, fraud risk management, corporate intelligence, anti-bribery, anti-money laundering, and dispute advisory services, we help to diffuse challenging situations.

Our Forensic Graduate Programme is designed to build your commercial and business awareness across the Forensic practice and enable you to qualify in 3 years. As well as the chance to study towards the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales qualification (ACA). You’ll receive structured internal training and opportunities to help clients across a variety of sectors and services.

The Empowered Programme is KPMG’s blended ACA product where the onus is on you to take ownership of your  studies  and  help  shape your learning. The structure of the programme spreads the ACA examinations over the lifetime of the 3 year training contract so that you are able to build up your technical knowledge, and can gradually apply what you are learning in training to your workplace experience.

This job actually didn’t cross my mind until I read about the scheme online. It looked really varied, something that wouldn’t be the same thing day in, day out.

Then KPMG came to Durham and I met some of their grads. You couldn’t fail to notice how they genuinely enjoyed their jobs. They talked about the friendly environment, how they were still learning. When I compared that to other people I knew, it seemed really different, in a positive way.
