Graduate Programmes: What is Technology?

At KPMG, we’re far more than accountants. As technical specialists, we’re as good with a leading-edge technology as we are with stats, facts and figures.

Technology is a real area of focus for our business – as it is for clients. Take cyber security — one of the world’s biggest threats. Working with everyone from governments to blue chip clients, we’re at the forefront of developing game-changing technology that’s set to counter this ever-increasing security risk. Supporting clients through advisory, creating learning technologies to technical delivery and implementation, our graduates help to develop forward-thinking solutions to interesting and important issues — from online banking and new financial technologies to large scale infrastructure changes.

Untapped potential

As one of the fastest-growing business areas within KPMG, Technology offers plenty of scope for our graduates’ career development too. Here, you’ll be helping to shape our offer for the future and setting the scene for why technology is an increasingly critical part of any business.

Whether you already have technical experience or just the desire to work in this field, you’ll definitely need a passion for technology and the untapped potential it holds for ambitious businesses.

Technology Consulting

Technology underpins many of the most influential organisations in the world.  It enables the biggest business decisions and connects people around the globe.  The opportunities that technology brings are matched only by its potential threats.

We help to dramatically enhance our clients’ performance through sustainable improvements to their technology.  Some might even say that technology is the lifeblood of most organisations, which is why we provide independent, jargon-free advice and technical expertise to help our clients realise the potential of their technology, manage their technology risks, and enable them to make the best use of their data.  

We encourage applicants who are interested in a career in technology and display a willingness to learn new technical roles. Graduates who have prior application development experience in some mainstream languages can pursue more technical roles if desired, but all graduates get the chance to acquire and deepen technical skills and navigate their career as suits them best.

Whilst you don’t necessarily need to be a technical guru we are looking for individuals who have:

  • A keen interest in technology and a desire to get involved in a variety of projects but not necessarily a background in technology (our current graduates have degrees in a variety of subjects).
  • Most importantly, you’ll have an appetite to learn about technology and how we can best support our clients.

If you have evidence of programming experience listed below then please also apply and we will assess your needs and ensure you join a relevent team where your skills will be best utilised:

  • This may be derived from a Computer Science degree or Mathematics / Engineering with a significant technology-based component for a thesis or major project. Application development from other sources, such as work experience or personal interest is also beneficial and experience in a mainstream language e.g. Java, C family, .Net, SQL and a good understanding of development methodologies is ideal.

Once you’ve received your Technology Consulting Graduate offer, you can express a preference to work in one of our Technology departments. Available departments for each location will vary and may be subject to change. Your degree and/or any technical experience may also be taken into consideration for some teams.
