KPMG’s School Leavers’ Programme
Apply now to join the programme in September 2011
The Offer: Build a rewarding accountancy career straight from School or College at Europe’s largest professional services firm. Our new School Leavers’ Programme is a compelling alternative to pursuing a traditional university route.
Benefits: Earn and learn; KPMG’s new 6 year programme offers the opportunity to gain an Accountancy degree with honours at Exeter University, a professional accountancy qualification with ICAS (the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland), and gain work experience. There are no tuition fees to pay and applicants will earn a competitive starting salary.
Requirements: Applicants must have (or be anticipating) achieving 320 UCAS points. There is no need to have studied Business, Finance or Accountancy to join. However applicants will need to have achieved a Grade 2 in Maths and English Standards.
Following a typical university route is not right for everyone. At KPMG we believe that if you’re bright, ambitious and hard working you should not be held back by financial constraints or the desire to start your career straight from school or college.
Applying: We have vacancies in both our Edinburgh and Aberdeen offices. Apply now as places are being offered on a ‘first-come first serve’ basis. Applicants could soon be working alongside our industry leading professionals on challenging assignments with organisations such as PepsiCo, Liverpool FC or IKEA.
Applications are done on line and the application form can be viewed by following this link: http://www.kpmgapplygrad.co.uk/
