Job description

The Global Collaboration and Knowledge department reports to the Global Head of GC&K and works collaboratively across several teams to deliver an integrated GC&K service. We work closely with functions and member firms to provide collaboration and knowledge programs and products that enable KPMG employees to turn knowledge into insights and value for KPMG and our clients.


Communities are made-up of experts or people with a common interest. They enable richer relationships to be developed, trust to be established and target outcomes to be achieved and rewarded. The GC&K Community Enablement Program will enable KPMG to leverage best-practice community management approaches to achieve business goals such as:

- More effectively supporting clients through peer-to-peer knowledge sharing.
- More quickly ramping-up new employees by giving them access to the tacit expertise of peers

You will understand how both emergent leaders (community advocates) and formal leaders (Partners) influence community performance. They will be skilled at securing Partner sponsorship and participation as well as emergent community leadership and involvement in the community ecosystem.
