Our people are at the heart of our continued success. Being part of KPMG is being part of a community of talented and innovative people, working together to have a positive, lasting impact on clients. No one type of person succeeds at KPMG; a diverse business requires diverse personalities, characters and perspectives. Whoever you are, there is a place for you here.

About the programme

Deal Advisory is a fast paced area of our Advisory business. Continually enhancing value for clients across the deal and economic cycle, our specialists guide them through the process - from the initial concept of buying a business to turning their business around in times of difficulty.

Our wealth of experience across the deal cycle gives us access to what's happening in the heart of key sectors, and enables you to learn from our very best.

Combining structured training, work experience and on-the-job coaching, this three-year programme is a great foundation to your career - giving you a broad commercial awareness of the challenges a business faces across the deal and economic cycle.

What are we looking for you to show us?

During the recruitment process, you will need to demonstrate KPMG's Global Behavioural Capabilities which will give us confidence you’ll be successful in the firm. By this, we mean the skills and behaviours that every person here at KPMG shares. To us, ‘behaviours’ are more than the way you act – they represent the set of values that underpin our business.

KPMG's Global Behavioural Capabilities are:

  • Career Motivation
  • Delivers Quality
  • Drives Collaboration and Inclusion
  • Strives for Continual Improvement
  • Exercises Professional Judgement
  • Makes an Impact
  • Seizes Business Opportunities
  • Demonstrates Innovation and Curiosity
  • Resilience
What your job will involve

Initially joining Corporate Finance, Restructuring or Transaction Services, during the three years you will have the opportunity to apply for a secondment into a different area of the business. A secondment can enhance your commercial understanding and help to broaden your knowledge and network.

Training, support and development towards Your Professional Qualifications

In addition to your role responsibilities we will support you to gain the Associate of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales Qualification (ACA) or the Institute of Chartered Accountants (CA) in Scotland.

KPMG also has a large full-time Professional Qualification & Accreditation (PQA) team – dedicated to giving you the best chance of passing your exams first time. KPMG's programmes are underpinned by an online portal so you can access technical content and learning activities, share information and contact your tutors for all the support you need at the click of a button.

By joining KPMG you'll be joining a long list of graduates who've already excelled in their professional exams. The fact that KPMG trainees consistently outperform Institute pass marks is a real testament to our people and the quality of our training.

What do we look for?

Within our recruitment process, we look for more than just your academic results. This wider perspective helps us ensure that we are giving you the best opportunity to demonstrate your potential. We assess your application against KPMG’s Global Behavioural Capabilities and a number of other metrics to build our confidence in whether you will be a success at KPMG.

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*
  • Minimum 2:1 degree in any discipline * or equivalent

Please note that we only consider a candidate's top 3 A-level grades and do not accept General Studies.
