Service Line InformationAt KPMG, our vision is to be the clear choice on the future of Audit. In today’s complex and ever-changing business world, we recognise that we need to be one step ahead for our clients - rather than reacting to emerging trends we need to anticipate them by harnessing technology. Our people are integral to this, bringing their natural curiosity, diversity of ideas and perspectives to help deliver client excellence.

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.

Job DescriptionAt KPMG in the UK, we continue to transform audit to help unlock value for our audit engagements. We’re leading the debate on the future shape of corporate reporting through our Restoring Trust initiative. And we’re raising the bar for audit quality. How? By leveraging our advanced technology and data analytics to interpret ever-greater quantities of information.

Audit and assurance are essential to the effective allocation of capital around the globe – capital that powers growth, the creation of jobs, prosperity and innovation. In that sense, our work touches almost everybody and we now have opportunities for qualified professionals nationwide to work on audit engagements s across diverse industry sectors.



What we’re looking for

- Excellent project management techniques including decision-making ability, analytical skills, time management, prioritisation, organisation and evaluative skills

- Previous experience in a similar Manager, or Senior Manager, role

- Exceptional communication skills; both written and verbal

- Digital / IT capability
