Learning & development 

The skills, knowledge and capabilities of our people are absolutely central to the success of KPMG and so we invest significant amounts of money, time and energy in developing our people.

What has been your biggest achievement?


Sydney – Becoming a Chartered Accountant — they have been very supportive with training and guidance, despite a busy working schedule. That is my biggest achievement.


Toronto – I think my biggest achievement so far is making manager and moving to a new group, a new industry, getting that kind of exposure and just immersing myself into that group and excelling during this year.  


Sydney – It is quite challenging, being straight out of the school and having to adapt to working in a full-time environment as well as studying. But KPMG really helps you through that.



London – Coming on secondment has helped me emeet lots of new people, build good networks, experience different clients, and learn about IFRS. So, I think that was probably the best.


Manchester – This summer I passed my Chartered Accountancy exams and last November I passed my Chartered Tax Adviser exams.


New York – I have been with the firm for three years and I have been promoted from a senior associate to senior manager within those three years. So, that, to me, is a great achievement. I was also involved in all the client activities and I was responsible for certain analysis. This is something I could not do three years ago and now I am responsible for.

We offer our people fantastic opportunities to be personally stretched and challenged. Yes, it's a big investment. But the business case is indisputable. If we are to continue our success and maintain our reputation in the market place our people must have outstanding skills.

We believe we have developed one of the strongest learning and development packages you will find anywhere — a powerful combination of technical training, coaching and mentoring, skill building programs, industry secondments and recognition to celebrate key milestones like becoming a new manager. Each KPMG member firm has its own range of national training and development programs and this is complemented by our global learning and development initiative, Compass.


Whatever level you join KPMG at you can be sure of our superb learning and development opportunities, from graduate inductions to our Chairman's 25 program for more senior high fliers. And as you pursue your goals, you can monitor your progress and obtain regular feedback with 'Dialogue', our global performance management system. It all adds up to the support you need to feel challenged and inspired at every stage of your career whether you're a graduate trainee, a new manager or a senior manager looking to become a partner.
