Job Description
KPMG’s Infrastructure Advisory Group (IAG) is widely recognised as one of the world’s leading independent strategic advisors in the infrastructure sector. The group has won many awards, including financial advisor of the year (Infrastructure Journal). In the UK the group consists of over 150 professionals, with locations in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds and Edinburgh and is organised as a single national team.
We provide in-depth advice on the strategic, economic, financial and commercial issues driving infrastructure projects spanning the transport, power and utilities and social infrastructure sectors in the UK and internationally. This broad range of projects involves work with both public and private sector clients.

IAG’s Infrastructure Strategy business provides market-leading advice to major city region authorities, central government departments and private sector developers on the economic and financial impacts of transport, housing, regeneration projects and other strategic local infrastructure.

Over the last decade we have designed innovative new funding solutions that have underpinned the delivery of multi-billion pound infrastructure projects and programmes across the UK. We have also pioneered cutting-edge analytical approaches that allow our clients to understand the wider impacts of transformational infrastructure on the local, regional and national economy.

We have been economic and financial advisors for the country’s largest and most high-profile infrastructure projects, including HS2, Crossrail 2, East West Rail, the Northern Line Extension to Battersea, Northern Powerhouse Rail and Highways England’s Roads Investment Strategy programme, as well as the major infrastructure-led City Deals and Devolution Deals for UK cities.

- Be an independent thinker with the ability to identify problems and contribute to the development of solutions using first principles in economics, helping us to remain at the cutting edge of thinking in the sector;

- Be confident in steering and managing the work of junior colleagues, ensuring that technical and analytical work is undertaken to the highest possible standard;
- Have the ability to communicate complex concepts and analysis to colleagues and clients in plain English and with impact.

- Designing and implementing innovative and rigorous economic analysis and modelling tools in order to assess the case for investment in transport and other infrastructure.
- Managing and delivering engagements, or discrete workstreams of an engagement, to the highest standard, on time and to budget.
