Imagine being fast tracked straight past the online tests and first round interview stages in the graduate recruitment process.

Not bad right? This is exactly what happens if you take part in our first year internship.

This two-week programme is aimed at first year university students and takes place around Easter time. After a one-day induction, you’ll join a team within one of our core business areas and get straight down to business. During your time with us, we’ll try to do everything we can to tailor the experience to your interests, ambitions and aspirations.

Then, once your internship’s complete, you’ll have an invaluable insight into life at KPMG, the work we do and whether KPMG is the place where you’d like to start your graduate career. And if you do, remember you’ll be given preference when it comes to the graduate recruitment process.

What support will I get?
We’ll give you the support of a mentor and a senior manager to make you feel at home from day one. Your mento’s role is to meet you on your first day and help you to settle in. They’ll also introduce you to your team and answer any questions you want to ask.

What different business areas can I join?
We have a few different business areas you could join. Once we’ve got your application, we’ll match your skills with the area we think is the right one for you. You’ll find a brief introduction to each area below. For more detailed information, see the ‘Programmes’ section of this site.

An internship in Audit could give you great exposure to a variety of different organisations. It could also give you the chance to find out exactly how their businesses work.

As you’ll discover, there’s so much more to Audit than checking expenses and balance sheets, although this is a big part of the job. For us, it’s more about getting to the heart of how a business works, understanding the detail of its processes and systems, and assessing the validity of its financial reporting.

And because we try to build strong professional relationships with our clients, we’re able to add value to their businesses by giving commercial advice on how to develop and improve their processes.

It’s pretty complex stuff. But once you’ve got your head around it, you’ll be in a really good place when it comes to making progress in your career.

If you get placed into our Tax practice, you’ll have the opportunity to get involved in real work for real clients, helping to provide them with tax strategies that support their wider business needs.

There’s so much more to the world of tax than you might think. That’s why we find it so fascinating. And we’re sure you will too. On this programme, you’ll learn about the many, varied and intellectually stimulating career paths available in Tax.

On top of that, you’ll meet a broad range of KPMG staff and obtain first-hand experience of how we work with clients to understand their businesses and respond to their individual needs.

Who can apply?
It’s for students who are in the first year of undergraduate study. On the other hand, you might be in your first or second year of a four-year undergraduate degree.
