Audit is the largest of KPMG UK's practices, providing independent challenge and delivering quality audits to organisations of all shapes and sizes. Audit requires a deep understanding of the company, their controls, processes and systems as well as their aims and the risks they face. Audit helps to assure stakeholders that published accounts are ‘true and fair’.
Working in audit equips you with valuable technical skills, broad commercial understanding and in-depth knowledge of different industry sectors and business as a whole.

When you return from your final year at university you will pick up where you left off and have even more time to gain relevant work experience.

And if that’s the case, we’ll give you all the support you need to become an expert in your field. In addition to studying for a professional qualification, you’ll also gain access to The Academy which provides an innovative approach to training and development to bring out the best in you.
