KPMG Bursaries : How to Apply

We have to be honest. There’s a lot of competition for graduate opportunities at KPMG and not everyone gets offered a job. As you’d expect, our standards are high. We do believe, however, that the process of applying should be as easy as we can make it. As we recruit on a first come, first served basis, we recommend that you apply as soon as possible.

Our top tips are:

Tip 1

Apply as soon as you’ve decided that you want to join KPMG. We don’t have deadlines. So once we’ve filled all the positions in a particular area we’ll stop recruiting for it.

Tip 2

Give your application enough time and attention to make sure you provide all the information we need.

Tip 3

Practise and research – where practise tests are available, take them. Read up on our recruitment process on our website, and think about examples from your experience that you can use.

Tip 4

There are certain key behaviours that we look for in our graduates, so it’s worth keeping these in mind throughout the process, as we assess against them.

Tip 5

Find out about us too. The process is two-way and gives you the opportunity to see if KPMG is right for you, so make sure you research our business thoroughly.
