Change in recruitment practice for KPMG

 

KPMG

  • CityCareers visited KPMG this month and learned that the firm is keen to recruit a wider range of graduates including those from  widening participation backgrounds. They have dropped their requirements from 320 UCAS points to 300  for graduate entry.   They are also willing to look at the broader picture e.g. disappointing A level results but a good degree result.
  • Audit  is seen by the firm as a good grounding for progression into their other services and KPMG are planning to increase intake. 
  • The firm are continuing to experience problems recruiting to regional offices (but have no problems recruiting to London).  There is also a growth in audit practice outside of London.
  • Some readers  might be interested to know (perhaps for interested siblings) that KPMG are also changing their recruitment expectations for their School leaver programme. They are  launching a new programme with lower requirements, additional to their current school leaver programme which will require BCC A level grades (current programme requires ABB).  The new programme does not include degree study but does involve studying for professional accountancy qualifications.
