A top choice for graduate talent

We were proud for KPMG to once again be ranked in the Top 10 global employers in the latest Universum rankings, voted for by over 200,000 students around the world.

Our people are trained to work to the highest professional and ethical standards, to combine professional excellence and rigor with a willingness to look at every client issue with an open mind. At KPMG we encourage our people to work collaboratively in diverse teams united by a commitment to deliver the right solutions.

A two-way conversation

We are committed to maintaining the position of KPMG as a world-class employer. We recognize the importance of great people management based on honest two-way feedback, discussing and shaping career development plans.

KPMG’s people management is focused on regular feedback and objective- setting designed to help our people achieve their potential, feel recognized and be rewarded for their efforts and achievements. Our approach is thoughtful and balances support from the local firm and manager with members of staff taking personal responsibility for helping to shape their own development plans.

We continue to work with Harvard Business School to offer partners and staff access to some of the world's leading business study programs, self-study learning and senior level mentoring.

Our Global People Survey is just one part of a determined effort to listen to KPMG people around the world, to better understand their views and to learn how KPMG can develop to continue to offer the opportunities and working environment demanded by the world's most talented business professionals.
