KPMG Apprentices

Why does KPMG recruit apprentices?

Quite simply, because they're our future. Research shows there’s a growing pool of talent considering starting a career straight after their A-Levels or Scottish Highers rather than going down the traditional university route. We think these students have just as much potential to succeed at KPMG as our graduate trainees and our entry-routes reflect this belief.

Our drive to recruit trainees into KPMG is part of our long-term recruitment strategy to attract talented people from all walks of life. We're really proud to say our trainees come from all kinds of diverse backgrounds so you can rest assured that anyone you know will fit in just fine here.

KPMG is our innovative apprenticeship programme, giving students the chance to join KPMG and work with some of the best and brightest in the business world. Importantly, it includes a foundation year that's specifically designed so they can experience all areas of the business before they go on to choose an area of specialisation and gain a professional qualification.

KPMG Digital is a new four-year apprenticeship programme that combines academic study with practical work experience. Based in London, Leeds or Manchester, you'll undertake varied work experience with technology teams across the firm. At the same time, you'll also study for a BSc degree in Digital and Technology Solutions with our training provider, BPP University.

KPMG Business Services is a two-year apprenticeship programme will give you an overview of Business Services and how we support the wider organisation. As a new apprentice, you will be fully supported throughout the programme with guidance from KPMG teams and gain a professional qualification

KPMG Discovery is for Year 12 students looking to gain work experience, an insight into KPMG and our departments. This two, three or five-day (depending on office location) programme will give them useful industry knowledge, career opportunities and the chance to develop the skills they'll need to apply for a role with us.

Our apprenticeship programmes offer the training and support to help students reach their full potential. We're looking for ambitious, bright, motivated students who are interested in building a long-term career in business at a leading professional services firm.
