Graduate schemes are available in all lines of service. Like all accounting firms, graduates can specialise in a particular field early on (e.g. 'Public Sector Audit', or 'Corporate Tax'). Specific graduate schemes available are:

  • Audit
  • Tax
  • Advisory
  • Business services (Infrastructure & HR programmes)

Application Requirements

KPMG is looking for well-rounded individuals in terms of academic results, work experience, skills and abilities, and career motivation.

Specifically the firm are looking for evidence of good technical skills, problem-solving abilities and commercial focus.

You will be expected to meet the following requirements:

  • Grade A GCSE* Maths
  • At least grade A GCSE* English
  • Minimum of 320 UCAS Tariff points (or 26 UCAS points)
  • At least a 2:1 degree in any discipline
  • Only candidates' best three A-level grades are considered (not including General Studies)

For Tax, there are slightly different application requirements:

  • Minimum grade A GCSE* Maths
  • Minimum grade A GCSE* English
  • Minimum of 320 UCAS Tariff points (or 26 UCAS points)
  • At least a 2:1 degree in any discipline.

For the Audit ACCA entry route, you will need:

  • Minimum grade A GCSE* Maths
  • Minimum grade A GCSE* English
  • Minimum of 300 UCAS Tariff points (or 24 UCAS points)

On some occasions KPMG may overlook these minimum application requirements, particularly if you have a significant amount of relevant work experience, or if there are extenuating circumstances.
