Why Audit at KPMG?

Audit is the largest of our UK practices. Put simply, audit is about examining organisations and ensuring their published accounts provide a ‘true and fair’ view of their financial position and results. The work we do makes a meaningful difference to businesses and communities. It is critical to the everyday working of society, helps build trust in the economy and supports companies as they grow.

From the start, you'll be working on complex audit engagements, which could include big retailers, UK banks and multinational organisations – putting you at the heart of the world of business. We audit some of the world’s biggest companies, who rely on us to provide independent insight, challenge and high-quality audit expertise. Through this work, we’re also committed to helping to build sustainable organisations from an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) perspective. It’s challenging work, but you’ll also enjoy a lot of support as part of our KPMG community.

Those who are curious, resilient and agile will thrive, working alongside some of the brightest minds in Audit. Our people are persistent, resilient, and inquisitive – questioning assumptions and providing deep insights to deliver quality results.

We strive to deliver robust outcomes by working to the highest standards. You’ll play a key part in our continuous improvement of audit quality. As part of that, we continue to invest heavily in tech-enabled solutions, which not only allow us to offer higher-quality audits, but also a better experience for our auditors. At the heart of this investment is KPMG Clara, our progressive global collaboration and analytics tool, which has been developed to help deliver even greater consistency and collaborative working.

You can also look forward to thorough ongoing internal and external training – on most of our programmes, you'll study for the ACA professional qualification. You’ll finish the programme with valuable technical skills, broad commercial understanding and in-depth knowledge of one or more industry sectors.

At KPMG, you’ll find that we’re creating a tech-driven business to empower and equip our people to be outstanding in delivery, no matter where they work – through inspiring collaboration spaces and new technologies. In your role, you’ll work flexibly across your location region – at engagement sites, our offices and home. Some travel is likely for audit work and, because the work is seasonal, you can expect a greater workload at the busiest times of the year.

Join us and you can expect to carry out work that's both challenging and rewarding, with the KPMG community at your side providing the support you need to be at your best. There’s a real sense of team across Audit – we care about each other’s wellbeing and welcome different perspectives and ideas that can contribute to our vision of being the most trusted professional services firm, delivering the highest quality audits.
