What you will do in your working day
KPMG in the UK is part of a global organisation of independent firms that offers Audit, Consulting, Deal Advisory, Tax & Law and Technology services. Through the talent of over 16,000 people, we turn insights into opportunities, making a positive difference for businesses, people and communities.

Audit is KPMG’s largest practice in the UK, supporting many of the world’s largest organisations and helping to build trust in businesses and the economy. We examine organisations and ensure their published financial statements provide a true and fair view of their financial position. Through this work, we’re also committed to helping to build sustainable organisations from an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) perspective. We behave ethically, uphold high standards and build trust.

As an Audit apprentice you’ll focus on:
  • Delivering high quality audits using an investigative approach
  • Learning about the components that make a successful business, and;
  • You’ll begin to use new technologies and tools such as artificial intelligence and predicative analytics to analyse data and produce quality audits outcomes.

All whilst studying towards a valuable professional qualification.

You'll have the resources and support you need to thrive with us and reach your full potential, learning to handle each audit engagement with confidence. You’ll work as part of a team and may spend time on site at the companies you’re auditing, in virtual or hybrid forms of audit delivery. From the start, you’ll be working on complex projects alongside some of the brightest minds in business and benefit from learning every day.

The work is challenging and rewarding, especially during busier periods - and throughout the programme you’ll have the support of your senior leaders and the broader Audit community, enabling you to be at your best.
The training you will be getting
With the KPMG community by your side, you’ll have the support to grow in your own way, gaining learning for a lifetime. You’ll have access to funded, relevant professional qualifications or accreditations and an extensive programme of internal training geared towards your career and personal development.

On this programme, you’ll study towards the AAT Level 3.

Our firm’s hybrid working model balances the flexibility of working from home with the importance of collaborating and learning in offices or at engagement sites. We trust our people to be where the business we work with need them to be, with our colleagues working together in person as often as needed. You’ll be empowered by the technology that supports us to work flexibly and build friendships and shared experiences, innovating, and learning together with your colleagues.

Please note we recruit on a rolling basis and encourage you to apply as soon as possible.
What to expect at the end of your apprenticeship
