About the programme
Our Business Technology programme is designed to deliver the client exposure and core consulting skills you need to get your career off to a flying start. Developing technology and commercial skills together with business acumen, you’ll help us to deliver real value to our clients.
As a graduate, you’ll join our London office and follow a structured programme that offers the chance to work with a range of clients within your Line of Business and gain experience of our technology. Highly diverse, this work will span the delivery lifecycle, from project shaping and initiation through to technical delivery and benefits realisation.
During the programme, you’ll also undertake a number of structured training modules designed to hone your productivity, technical and business skills. As you progress into your second year, your performance manager will work with you to identify and agree your development goals and tailor any additional training requirements you might need.
In addition to the structured programme, KPMG will provide you with plenty of support and a blend of development opportunities to help you reach your potential – including client work, technical qualifications and skills training.
Key Skills Required
People who excel within Management Consulting are passionate about continually adapting their skills and knowledge to find solutions that meet our clients' needs. We also ask for a keen interest in IT and business issues, as well as good communication skills and the desire to take on early responsibility. Candidates should also be highly organised, efficient and comfortable in their ability to meet challenging deadlines.
You don’t need to have a technology degree to join, however, a keen interest in technology is essential, and an element of technology in your degree would be ideal. That said, a number of our graduates have had no formal IT background at all. More importantly, you’ll have an appetite to learn about IT and a desire to get stuck in!

Your first role may be client delivery focused and will offer opportunities to learn and apply the latest technologies. You’ll be expected to quickly pick up essential information about the firm and industry that you’re working in, as well as the basics of technology consulting.
Qualifications you'll work for
Joining the IT Advisory Service Line in one of our Lines of Business (LoBs) – Financial Services, Corporates or Public Sector – you’ll benefit from formal training, on the job mentoring and self study to grow your knowledge in Business Technology. This will consist of Technical, Industry, Professional and Consulting skills. Additionally, there will also be scope to study for externally-recognised industry qualifications where these are appropriate to your Line of Business.
You must have technical programming skills for this role, for example, experience within development methodologies or mainstream languages.
As a general rule, you'll be expected to meet the following requirements:
- Minimum grade B GCSE* Maths
- Minimum grade B GCSE* English Language
- Minimum of 320 UCAS Tariff points (or 26 UCAS points)
