One Year Business Placement
KPMG in the UK has 22 offices and is part of a global network of member firms offering Audit, Tax and Advisory services to some of the world’s biggest businesses. Being part of KPMG is being part of a community of talented and innovative people, working together to have a positive, lasting impact on clients. No one type of person succeeds at KPMG; a diverse business requires diverse personalities, characters and perspectives. And with the opportunity to work across different functional sectors, there really is a place for you here.
What is the One Year Business Placement?
Essentially, this is a sandwich year. A chance to build on and complement your studies by gaining practical experience. On our programme, you can develop a broad range of professional skills and experiences while working with a wide variety of people within KPMG. You can look forward to both technical training and personal development opportunities that will help equip you with the skills you need to succeed in your future career. Not least because you’ll be working on real projects with real impact.
What you can expect
We offer four distinct programmes on the One Year Business Placement. Join our Tax – Capital Allowances programme and you’ll work alongside surveyors, tax advisors, accountants and property professionals to assist companies and individuals in analysing their fixed asset spend in a whole range of different ways. Or elsewhere within tax, you could apply to our Tax Global Mobility Services (GMS) Technology programme, which offers a fantastic opportunity to gain experience in one of the world's leading tax and advisory organisations. The programme will give you an insight into a career within tax and business advisory.
You might spend your year in Technology Consulting where you’ll build on your skills and knowledge in one of the following technology areas: Technology Risk, Information Protection (Security), Data Insights Services or Intellectual Property and Contract Governance. Or alternatively, within our Audit team you’ll get exposure to a broad range of work, allowing you to build up both area expertise and client relationship expertise too.
Who’s it for?
Smart, ambitious and career-focused, you should be on a degree programme that gives you the option of undertaking a year-long business placement. As a general rule, you’ll be expected to have at least a grade B in GCSE Maths and English and 300 UCAS points (or the equivalents). We only consider your ‘top’ three ‘A’ level grades and don’t accept General Studies. You should also be on course for a 2:1 degree in any discipline. However, it’s not just your academic performance we’re interested in – we’ll assess your application by combining a number of different factors.
Why choose KPMG?
At KPMG, your long-term future is every bit as important to us as it is to you. That’s why our aim is to give you experiences that will stay with you for a lifetime. Whether it’s great training and development, mobility opportunities or corporate responsibility volunteering activities – you’ll gain a wealth of experiences on which to build a rewarding career. We’re proud of our culture – it’s one that recognises hard work, encourages new ways of thinking and embraces diversity and inclusion. We have an innovative spirit which inspires what we do and how we do it – striving to be better lies at the heart of who we are
