Technology is changing the world like never before, which makes it a really exciting time to join us. Working shoulder-to-shoulder with our clients, we are pioneering some of the most advanced tech-enabled solutions to help them solve some of their biggest business challenges and make a difference.
We’re looking for people who are curious and passionate about technology – whether fresh out of school or ready to start a new opportunity. Help us innovate and take technology further, faster – for our firm and for our clients.
Join us on this 5-year apprenticeship, and you’ll learn to do just that. You’ll study towards a BSc (Hons) in Digital and Technology Solutions at Queen Mary University of London two days a week. For the other three days of the week, you’ll bring your academic learning to life and gain practical and relevant work experience on projects at KPMG. You’ll be inspired to learn every day – whether in the classroom, amongst your peers or working with experienced specialists.
Our work is both technical and diverse. You could find yourself learning more about specialisms such as software development, Cloud infrastructure, user experience design (UX), testing, coding or project management. Along the way, you’ll develop lots of technical skills, learning languages including Java, Python and SQL and work towards technical accreditations through the likes of AWS, Google and Microsoft.
Through the apprenticeship, you’ll develop a host of core skills to help you succeed in the workplace. From presenting on projects, to report writing and how to build your network, you’ll learn how to work as part of a professional team and keep up the pace on projects. We’ll make sure you have the support you need to take on new challenges every day.
Your study will be fully funded by KPMG, and you’ll also receive a competitive salary and benefits such as 25 days holiday and a day off on your birthday. Join us, and take the opportunity to gain experience and a degree, all whilst building an exceptional career in technology.
