When we started KPMG in Russia and the CIS in the early 1990s, clients primarily used us for our Audit services. But in the last seven to eight years we have seen some dramatic changes - there has been huge demand for our Advisory and Tax services, and now our Audit work accounts for about 50 percent (B) of our business. This means we have more balance to our business, and it reflects an economy that has developed enormously since we began working here.
What’s more, the economy in Russia and the CIS is still evolving and growing. We, in turn, can continue to help shape the Russian business environment, and support our firms’ clients as their businesses face new challenges and opportunities.
Russia as an economy still has huge potential and is still expected to grow over the coming years. It has huge natural and financial resources, a large skilled workforce and very little consumer debt. It also has low public exposure to the stock market. While KPMG in Russia and the CIS is not expecting to see the rapid levels of growth that we have seen in recent years (over 50 percent year-on-year) we are continuing to focus long-term - investing in our people and our skills base, and reinforcing our reputation so that we can deliver long-term, sustainable growth.
KPMG in Russia and the CIS is a great place to be. We already have an incredibly strong market share of leading companies, and offer them a diverse range of services. Our working environment is friendly and meritocratic, and it’s getting even better - our regular internal surveys show that we continuously improve in all areas of employee satisfaction, from cultural aspects right through to developing our corporate citizenship strategies.
We are here for success in the long term – that’s why we’re continuing to hire the best talent, locally and internationally. So if you want a fresh challenge with the scope for an enormously rewarding career, then you should consider Russia and the CIS.
