Also, KPMG encourages all professional staff to obtain the most appropriate professional qualification to enable them to perform their work effectively. Therefore examination assistance, such as study leave, exam leave, and exam training, is also provided.

How can I register for the relevant Certified Public Accountancy qualification?

The KPMG Training Department will contact you for registration and answer your questions regarding your professional qualification.

What kind of compensation and benefits will I receive at KPMG?

KPMG believes employees are the most important investment for success and our comprehensive compensation and benefits programme reflects this. The programme's purpose is to attract, retain and reward the people responsible for the company's long-term growth and profitability.
