Return to Audit Programme - Intelligent Working

Location: London

Capability: Audit

Service line: Audit

Experience level: Senior Manager

Employment type: Part Time



Return to Audit – as flexible as your life needs you to be

We know the corporate world can sometimes feel like you are expected to be just like everybody else – however you are an individual and we like that.

Our Audit business has designed a return to work programme to target qualified audit professionals who are looking for flexibility; ensuring that they can balance their commitments at home with a return to work. This includes people who may have taken time out and are now looking for opportunities to combine a rewarding career in a supportive working environment.

What is on offer?

Return to Audit will support individuals in roles that are structured around flexible hours and remote working, with a focus on bridging the skills gap and building confidence to return to the workplace environment. All the roles are internally focused, across the UK and based at KPMG offices with the six week school holidays built in as leave. The roles will be within our Audit Centre of Excellence IT Audit and Front Line Audit teams. They cover an array of capabilities and skills ranging from technical audit expertise to project management.

The roles broadly fall into two categories - you can either have:
1. Flexible working for 3 or 4 days per week, with one of those days working at home; or
2. Reduced hours working a shorter day from 9:30am to 2:30pm.

The roles will be a fixed term annualised days’ contract of one year with an initial month of full time training, and with a second month of training and work shadowing until you are fully comfortable. After the contract expires, candidates will be able to apply for permanent positions, depending on the success of their time at KPMG.

At the heart of the programme is a structured induction programme aimed at getting you up to speed with the latest industry developments, refreshing technical skills and becoming integrated into our professional services environment. You will receive ongoing support in the form of a working mentor and a buddy. The development opportunities won’t end once the induction is finished. You will enter an ongoing training path with check-in points to evaluate progress against goals and determine additional training needs.

Who we are looking for?


- Candidates with ACCA/ACA or equivalent qualification
- Candidates must have demonstrable experience working in Audit in the last six years
- For those looking for roles specifically in IT Audit a degree/masters qualification in IT/business and a recognised accounting and/or auditing (e.g. CISA, ACA, CIMA) qualification would also be desirable.


- Candidates will have a passion for returning to Audit working alongside our teams to deliver quality results for our clients
- Candidates will be assessed on an individual basis, looking at prior audit experience and qualifications

We aim to attract exceptional people from diverse backgrounds who can deliver real results for our clients and drive the firm forward. If this is you and you are looking for a more flexible approach to work that can fit around your lifestyle or commitments at home, then please complete the application. We want to hear from you!



Military Leavers' Programme

Location: London

Capability: Test

Service line: Test

Experience level: Any

Employment type: Full Time



What is the MLP?

- This is typically a six month, competitively paid Fixed Term Contract (FTC) to fulfil a pre-existing vacancy in the Firm; therefore, applicants may be competing against internal and external candidates (in addition to other military leavers).
- Following the six month FTC, there is often the opportunity to extend, go permanent in that role or move internally.
- Roles are in both internal and client facing areas of the business.
- We do not have quotas or intake dates - roles are based on demand.
- There is a range of roles across the business; from internal operations and project management to client facing and people lead positions.
- New joiners will be allocated a ‘buddy’ from the Forces in the Firm (FitF) Network who has been through the MLP themselves.

MLP Overview

- Inception. The Programme is run as part of the Forces in the Firm (FitF) Network and designed to enable the Firm to attract, recruit and retain high calibre individuals leaving the Armed Forces. Rather than having formal intakes, the Programme aims to pair individuals with vacant roles that already exist in the business.
- Eligibility. All ranks, from all three services, who are in the process of resettlement or have recently left and have not undertaken any other paid work prior to joining KPMG.
- Purpose. The Programme is of two-way benefit: Service Leavers demonstrate their ability to deliver and add value to the Firm through their skills and military experience, whilst the initial FTC offers invaluable insight in a corporate environment for the individual.
- Success. As of Nov 2019, we have added 100+ Service Leavers to KPMG’s ranks, landing roles in all corners of the business, both client-facing and internal. To date, it has a near 100% conversion rate onto permanent contracts.


MLP – what is expected from the candidate?

- Deliver. The Programme’s reputation has been built on the success of its members. You won’t be expected to know everything right away, but make sure you focus on delivering in your role and if you’re ever unsure, members of Forces in the Firm (FitF) will always be happy to help. You will need to demonstrate value-add during your FTC.
- Develop. There are a range of opportunities for you to pursue personal and professional development – use this time to expand your knowledge and skillset with online learning tools, webinars and knowledge shares held in KPMG offices.
- Network. You are encouraged to use the Programme as a platform to research and explore the wider business. FitF is a fantastic network for you to meet a range of people who can give advice.
- Succeed. Military Leavers have a strong reputation in KPMG and your team are willing you to succeed - your skillset and experience is in demand. Build your brand and promote yourself – seize the opportunity to impress.

We aim to attract exceptional people from diverse backgrounds who can deliver real results for our clients and drive the firm forward. If you are looking for your first opportunity after leaving the military and this sounds like the right path for you, then please follow the instructions to complete the application.
