As we continue to build on that success we are looking to add to our team with a commercially focused Senior Manager to help drive the business forward.
Work will focus on advising our UK and international client groups on a range of cross border tax matters, including group structuring and reorganisations, the efficient use of financing and intellectual property, and structuring cross-border investment.

This is an outstanding opportunity to work within a relatively small legal team of excellent calibre in a global organisation.
KPMG International is the entity with which all member firms of the KPMG network of independent firms are affiliated. KPMG member firms provide audit, tax and advisory services to clients and are based in 155 countries. KPMG purchases key insurance covers in different ways and has its own captive insurer for professional indemnity cover.
The International Office of the General Counsel is a team based in four countries. The team provides legal advice on key strategic issues for, and supports the execution of key business decisions made by, KPMG International. It also supports KPMG International and the KPMG global network in dealing with legal, regulatory and reputational issues and risks.
The role will involve advising and assisting on (primarily non-contentious) insurance matters, in particular on the renewal of KPMG’s global cyber security insurance program (placed in the commercial market) as well as issues relating to KPMG’s professional indemnity insurance program and D&O insurance. Where relevant, we would expect this to include giving input into strategic decisions on the overall structure of insurance arrangements, as well as advising on policy wording and assisting with regulatory compliance issues. The role will also include, as a secondary focus, advising and assisting on more general corporate and commercial matters. It is therefore important that the candidate is not seeking a position purely focused on insurance.
The person in this role will work under the supervision of a partner in the International Office of the General Counsel team and also work closely with KPMG’s Global Head of Insurance and a Director in KPMG’s internal global insurance team who is the Program Lead for the global cyber security insurance program.
Some international travel may be required but not usually at short notice.
We are looking for a qualified lawyer with approximately 6 years PQE (or equivalent, if not qualified in the UK), although all candidates with demonstrable ability to fulfil the role will be considered.
A successful candidate is likely to have or be able to demonstrate:
- Excellent legal technical skills.
- Legal experience of advising on and negotiating insurance policies and/or advising on disputes between insurers/insureds (in each case, whether on behalf of insurers/insureds).
- Experience of cyber security insurance will be an advantage but is not essential.
- Legal experience of advising on data privacy issues and/or legal issues arising from IT security matters will be an advantage. If the candidate does not have direct experience of cyber security insurance then this element will be more important.
- Legal experience of working on complex commercial matters involving multiple different jurisdictions. Previous experience of advising on issues arising from compliance with local insurance regulations across the world is an advantage, but not essential.
- Knowledge of the general process involved in placing and renewing large commercial insurance policies (including the role of brokers, insurers and reinsurers).
- An understanding of business drivers affecting, and legal, regulatory and business risks faced by, large global organizations.
- Awareness of own strengths and areas for development.
- Ability to work flexibly and collaboratively as part of a small, supportive team while taking responsibility for their own work.
- Ability to provide clear and pragmatic advice to, and deal confidently with, individuals at all levels.
- Ability to deal with people from different cultures in an appropriate way.
For any internal candidates, we can discuss role location based on the individual’s current office base. This role if offered on either a permanent basis or on a 12-18 month secondment.
The Ethics and Independence (“E&I”) team is part of KPMG UK’s Central Risk Management department. The E&I team is responsible for developing and deploying appropriate policy, procedure and guidance on Ethics and Independence (firm, personal and service-related) to ensure compliance with regulatory and KPMG International requirements, ensuring an adequate programme of communication and training in respect of those policies and procedures is in place and providing guidance and advice to partners and staff on E&I matters.
Following the implementation of the EU Audit Reform in the UK the relationships we have with a large number of our audit clients are now subject to more onerous and complex independence restrictions. It is critical for engagement teams to appropriately consider permissibility of proposed non-audit services and other relationships for our audit clients to ensure compliance with regulation. This is an area of increased regulatory focus and goes right to the heart of KPMG’s quality agenda.
In this interesting and challenging environment, the E&I team is looking to recruit senior manager level individuals to lead in the provision of high quality advice to engagement teams.
New matters and issues are always emerging, in particular in relation to interpretation of the Revised FRC Ethical Standard so the role will be varied but the role is likely to involve:
- Team consultations – dealing with queries from client facing partners and directors on non-audit services and reviewing and approving formal ethics & independence consultations.
- Independence clearances – taking an SME role with respect to review and sign off of independence clearances for prospective listed (EU PIE) audit clients, supporting engagement teams through this challenging process and providing a valuable contribution to an important part of the audit tender process.
- Sentinel secondary approvals – together with others in the team the individual would take on responsibility for secondary approvals (as a delegate to the E&I Partner) in Sentinel which will involve liaison at the highest levels with audit partners and engagement teams to understand services and ensure documentation is sufficient and threats and safeguards have been adequately documented.
- Projects - taking on the lead for various projects (as they arise) to respond to the regulators feedback and/or to enhance our processes and overall compliance - by using experience gained in the field, providing practical solutions, driving projects forward and maintaining momentum.
- Training/Communication – deciding how best to increase awareness and drafting communications and guidance and delivering training across the whole firm
Skills and Experience
Applicants should be able to demonstrate experience (ideally from a client-facing role within Audit or another capability or a Quality and Risk Management role) in the following key components of this role:
- Proven ability to build relationships and communicate with people at all levels including Partners
- Effective negotiation skills and ability to deliver difficult messages to all grades – including Partners
- Confident and comfortable to act as a delegate for a Director or Partner where required.
- Client-focused approach with a passion for delivering excellence
