Careers & Employability
Technology is at the heart of what we do and part of the very DNA of our business. Our tech teams have the access, capability and connectivity to make possibilities happen, blending tech and business expertise to solve complex problems that help our clients and communities to thrive.
This programme is aimed primarily at students seeking an insight into a career in Technology & Engineering who come from a low socioeconomic background. It is the perfect opportunity for you to learn more about our business and develop your professional skills.
During your Insight experience, you’ll have the chance to meet inspirational people from our diverse Technology & Engineering teams and explore our variety of career opportunities available. Over three days you'll network with our colleagues, learn more about what we do and the meaningful difference we make to businesses and the communities we serve.
Whilst on the programme, you’ll have the opportunity to take an assessment, and if successful, you could secure a position on one of our 2023 Technology & Engineering graduate programmes.
What we look for:
At KPMG, everyone brings a unique perspective, and we want to ensure that you have the best opportunity to demonstrate your potential. We’ve designed our application process to assess everyone’s potential and to ensure that you have the skills to succeed at KPMG.
We will be considering your strengths and achievements alongside several other metrics, including technical background and/or experience. You’ll generally be expected to demonstrate the following:
- 2:2 (or on track to obtain a 2:2) undergraduate degree in any discipline.
This programme is aimed primarily at students who come from a low socioeconomic background. By low socioeconomic background we mean:
- Attended state school or college, and
- The occupation of your main household earner when you were aged 14 is categorised as coming from a lower socio-economic background*, or
- Whilst at school you were eligible for free school meals (or you attended a school with ‘above regional average’ free school meals**), or
- Your immediate family did not attend university.
*Parental occupation socio-economic classification is a national standard and the Social Mobility Work’s toolkit (found here) provides details on the categorisations.
**Free School Meals are a statutory benefit available to school-aged children from families who receive other qualifying benefits and who have been through the relevant registration process. It does not include those who receive meals at school through other means e.g. boarding school.
