The Team


Organisations across all industries are using financial and data models of increasing complexity in key decision making areas such as project evaluation, investment appraisals, on-going operational and financial reporting purposes.

The roles are within the Modelling team based in London, Canary Wharf. We provide a wide range of modelling services to our clients in a diverse range of sectors such as transport, infrastructure, communications, health energy / natural resources, financial services, leisure, retail and manufacturing. Our modelling services include:

• business planning and forecasting;
• modelling the impacts of business restructuring, including options analysis, cost optimisation, outsourcing and other operational and financial restructuring;
• transaction modelling (mergers & acquisitions, buyouts, refinancing, bids and bid defence);
• management and KPI reporting solutions;
• data analysis and presentation;
• model risk assessment;
• model assurance;
• financial model best practice reviews

We work closely with teams across all functions within KPMG such as Transaction Services, Corporate Finance, Restructuring, Tax, Performance Management, Financial Management, Financial Risk Management, Internal Audit and Regulatory and Compliance Services. We work on some of the most exciting projects in KPMG, delivering high quality, flexible and bespoke analytics and modelling solutions for our clients.

As the candidate’s familiarity with best practice financial modelling increases, they will be given the opportunity to work on business and transaction modelling projects with senior staff. The candidate will be expected to pass on this knowledge to more junior analysts through mentoring and on-the-job training.

The role requires working to deadlines, prioritising workload, project management and providing a high level of client service at all times. The level of responsibility you will be given will only be limited by your own aptitude and willingness to learn and to take on new challenges.
