Graduate Audit ACA / CA - Empowered

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 one or more industry sectors and business as a whole.

Dependent upon the office you join, you may be allocated to a specific industry sector or across a variety of industries - the companies we audit vary in size, complexity and maturity. This provides experience in an environment that embraces diversity and the positive impact it has on our business, companies and the community. From day one, you will build strong relationships, and gain an understanding of both the issues companies face today and the challenges on their horizons tomorrow.

Graduates joining the Audit Programme will also have the chance to work in a specific business area whilst studying towards a valuable professional qualification. Additionally, all of our employees have access to an extensive programme of internal training geared towards your career and personal development, meaning progression can be rapid. From the start you’ll be an integral part of a team, and throughout your training you will be coached and supported to manage and develop your wider team, together with nurturing relationships and delivering quality audit work.

We offer two different training paths for our Audit Graduate Programmes – Empowered or Intensive. All programmes take 3 years to complete; they just offer different routes to achieving success. Our Empowered Programme offers you the chance to work and study near your KPMG office and follow blended work experience and study (classroom and online learning) towards ACA or CA (Scotland) qualification - local to your home office location. Some travel will be required for work and because audit is seasonal, you can expect a greater workload at the busiest times of the year. Exams will be spread out over the 3 year programme.
