We’ve designed an innovative, 6-year programme that gives you the opportunity to join our fantastic Audit team, gain an accounting degree from either the University of Birmingham, Durham University or the University of Exeter, and become a fully qualified Chartered Accountant with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) or the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS). And it gets better.

We’ll pay all your tuition and university accommodation fees too. We’ll even pay you a starting salary of around £20,000 (in London). So wave goodbye to any fears of mounting up a hefty student debt. Interested? Great, let’s see if it’s for you.

What is Audit?
Every so often, businesses need assurance about their performance and reliability – a bit like when a car goes for an MOT. Only at KPMG, we go way beyond the simple nuts and bolts of financial statements. We like to get right to the heart of an organisation, and get to grips with the inner workings of the business so we can spot any problems before they happen.

For you, the best part is that it affects all businesses. So you’ll have the opportunity to experience life across a huge variety of industries. You’ll also get to meet lots of interesting people and develop skills that are always in demand. Plus, it’ll give you access to senior business people from across many different sectors.

Who’s it for?
It’s for students who have just completed their A-levels. You’ll also be someone who truly aspires to a career in business and recognises the role we play in the wider business world.

How do I apply?
The next step will be online verbal and numerical tests. If successful in the tests, you will be invited to attend a first stage assessment in the office to which you have applied to. This will include an interview which is all about introducing yourself, telling us why you’re the one for us, and finding out more about what we’ll do for your career as well as a written exercise. For the final stage, you’ll have an interview with one of our partners, and you will also be asked to deliver a presentation.
