Technology Consulting Vacation Programme

Sign up to hear first when we open

If you're applying to the Technology Consulting vacation programme, there is no doubt you'll be aware of the vast, unstoppable reach of technology. Present in every industry and every household, technology and the use of data, shape the way we live and work.

Our Technology teams have the connectivity to make possibilities happen – like using data science to support UK health delivery or helping energy sector businesses to design emissions reduction technology. Technology Consulting is a dynamic and fast-paced place to be. We invest in new methods, new tools and new capabilities, and combine expertise from across our Risk Consulting and Technology Transformation teams to deliver a broad mix of tailormade solutions to our clients.

On this programme, you'll develop skills to analyse, advise and deliver digital solutions for some of our clients’ most pressing business issues. You’ll learn how to work collaboratively in our diverse teams and alongside industry experts to shape a project from requirements through to technical delivery. And if you’re successful on the programme, you’ll have the opportunity to be considered for our Technology Consulting Graduate programme in the same office location starting in 2023.

We look for people with some existing technical skills, as well as those keen to develop a career in technology and who are curious about solving business issues in an innovative and sustainable way.  If you're interested in Technology Consulting, then we'll empower you grow and start to shape an exciting technology career.

We’re reimagining how we work at KPMG. Our firm is creating a tech-driven business to empower and equip our people to be outstanding in delivery – through inspiring workspaces, innovative ways to collaborate and hybrid ways of working. In your role, you’ll work flexibly across your location region – at KPMG offices, engagement sites and from home.
