Our selection process 

Learning about KPMG and completing the online application is the first stage in the selection process. Below we have provided you with some information on the stages between deciding to apply and receiving a job offer.

1. Application phase

Once you've decided to apply for a career with KPMG, you can apply online. You’ll receive a confirmation on submission of your application. If you do not receive this, please email gradrecruiting@kpmg.com.au. While we are reviewing your application we ask that you complete our online abilities assessments.

 

2. Abilities assessments

Our abilities assessments include an online numerical, logical and verbal reasoning assessment. The numerical, logical and verbal assessments are designed to obtain an understanding of your ability to evaluate and make decisions based on reasoning questions. These assessments will take no longer than 55 minutes to complete and can be taken from any computer. We ask that you complete these assessments within 48 hours, as they are required in order to progress your application to the next stage of our selection process.   

 

3. Final stage — information session, personality questionnaire, written exercise and interviews

The final stage of our recruitment process is a half-day assessment centre where you’ll have the opportunity to demonstrate your talents in a friendly and relaxed environment. You’ll also hear from our recent graduates, find out more about the benefits of working at KPMG and have the opportunity to ask any questions you have about our process and programs.

 

Before you attend the Assessment Centre, we will also ask you to undertake a personality questionnaire which will be used to assess personality traits that are indicative of the style with which you approach your work. This online questionnaire will takes about 45 minutes to complete.

 

During your Assessment Centre you will have two one-to-one behavioural-based interviews with a partner, director or senior manager from the business group you’ve expressed interest in. These interviews will last approximately 40 minutes each and allow us to find out more about you, and for you to ask questions about us. Your interviewer will ask you questions about your life, your time at school and/or university, your extra-curricular activities and any work experience you’ve acquired. You will also be asked to complete our written exercise, which is a 30-minute task that gives you the opportunity to demonstrate your written communication skills.

 

4. Our offer

If you're successful at the final stage of our process you’ll be contacted by KPMG and a written offer of employment will be forwarded to you. If you have any questions about our offer, or about working at KPMG, then we encourage you to talk to our Graduate Recruitment team.
