About the programme

People Consulting is an integral part of KPMG’s Consulting practice and a growing part of our business. This team helps to transform the performance of organisations by changing the way people are led, managed and developed.  

We do this by focusing on two key areas – delivering the people agenda on large scale, complex, transformational change programmes and transforming the HR function. We work with clients across all sectors, including Corporates, Financial Services, Infrastructure, Government & Healthcare and National Markets. 

In People Consulting we work with big blue chip clients to help them transform their business through four key proposition areas: organisational transformation, workforce transformation, learning solutions and digital HR transformation.

Our Graduate Programme is designed to give you the experience and core consulting skills you need to get your career off to a flying start. Starting as you mean to go on, you’ll build your commercial understanding and business acumen to deliver real value to our clients straight away.
