The Programme will give you the chance to meet people who make KPMG an inspiring place to work and support you to explore the variety of opportunities available across our organisation.
It is the perfect opportunity to learn more about our business and develop your professional skills – it could even lead to an offer for an autumn 2020 Graduate Programme in either Audit, Tax, Technology, Consulting or Deal Advisory.
Over three days you’ll network with colleagues from all areas of our business, from recent Apprentices to Partners, so you can find out what life and a career at KPMG is really like. Most importantly, this is a fantastic opportunity to fast-track yourself through our recruitment process. Whilst on the programme, you’ll have the opportunity to take part in an assessment, and if successful, secure a position on an autumn 2020 Graduate Programme. Please note - Graduate conversion offers will be subject to candidates having obtained the minimum UCAS requirements for that particular Graduate programme. Further information on our Graduate Programmes and academic requirements can be found on the graduate section of our careers site.
The Insight programme will run in London from the 16th - 18th September 2019 and in Birmingham from the 24th – 26th September 2019.
Please note that by attending our London Insight Programme, your Graduate conversion offer would be for London. By attending our Birmingham Insight Programme, your Graduate conversion offer would be based in a regional office of your choice. Further information on our regional offices can be found on our website.
