Applications for the KPMG Discovery programme are now open!
We wanted you to be one of the first to know that the KPMG Discovery programme is open for applications. It’s the chance for ambitious and enthusiastic students to gain an insight into life at KPMG and find out if a career in business is right for them.
This work experience programme offers Year 12 & S5 students the opportunity to gain invaluable work experience in the professional services industry whilst also developing the skills students need to build a successful career. We are offering this programme in all our offices across the UK.
The KPMG Discovery programme will run in summer 2017 and give students an excellent insight into the work we do at KPMG and the way we do it. Specific dates and locations can be found here. During the programme students will undertake a series of business challenges, skills workshops and research tasks designed to develop some of the key skills needed to thrive at KPMG. Students will meet and network with KPMG staff across the business and on our 5-day and 3-day programmes, work shadow to see the type of work our staff undertake on a day-to-day basis.
The programme will also give students a chance to find out more about our range of School Leaver Programmes and students that complete the Discovery programme will be eligible to be fast tracked through the application stage for KPMG360º, KPMG’s rotational apprenticeship programme*.
