Service Line InformationIn KPMG's Management Consulting practice, we don't limit ourselves to either strategy or implementation. Instead, we deliver both - equally well. Indeed, it's this broad capability that's seen us accelerate to become a 1000-strong team in less than five years. Since our creation, we've developed in-depth knowledge of an incredibly broad spread of sectors.

In IT Advisory we leverage technology to help achieve clients' business strategy and help deliver sustainable business benefits.

KPMG OverviewKPMG is part of a global network of firms that offers Audit, Tax & Pensions, Consulting, Deal Advisory and Technology services. Through the talent of over 16,000 colleagues, we bring our creativity and insight to our clients’ most critical challenges.
With offices across the UK, we work with everyone from small start-ups and individuals to major multinationals, in virtually every industry imaginable. Our work is often complex, yet our vision is simple: to be the clear choice for our clients, for our people and for the communities we work in.

Job DescriptionOrganisations across all industries are using cost, financial and data models of growing complexity in key decision making areas such as project evaluation, investment appraisals, on-going reporting of financial and operational metrics.

KPMG’s Modelling team support our clients across a diverse range of sectors, such as defence, transport, infrastructure, communications, health, energy, financial services, leisure, retail and manufacturing. Our modelling services include:

- Model risk assessment;
- Model assurance;
- Best practice appraisals;
- Cost modelling;
- Business planning and forecasting;
- Modelling the impacts of business restructuring including options analysis, cost optimisation, outsourcing and other operational and financial restructuring;
- Management reporting and dashboard development;

We work closely with teams across all functions within KPMG such as Transaction Services, Corporate Finance, Restructuring, Tax, Financial Risk Management, Internal Audit and Regulatory and Compliance Services. You will work on some of the most exciting projects in KPMG, delivering high quality, flexible and bespoke analytics and modelling solutions.

The Opportunity

You will join our rapidly growing Bristol Modelling team delivering modelling services primarily to our defence clients. These services, provided as part of KPMG’s broader and market-leading defence advisory services, will include designing and constructing cost and operational models, model reviews and model audits, for defence clients.

The role will be challenging and require you to develop trusted relationships with key stakeholders, work to deadlines, prioritise workload, run projects and providing a high level of client service at all times. Your level of responsibility will only be limited by your own aptitude and passion to learn and to take on new challenges. You should have a proven track record of managing your own time, as well as others. Previous experience in cost modelling is essential, and experience of working in a consulting or professional services environment is desirable. VBA and SQL skills are desirable but not essential.
