KPMG

 

 

A chance to do work that matters

KPMG in the UK is part of a global network of member firms. Through the talent of our c.16,000 people in the UK we make a meaningful and positive difference for clients, people and the communities we serve. We’ve been doing this for more than 150 years.

Our work spans five areas: we Audit many of the UK’s largest companies. And our people in ConsultingDeal AdvisoryTax & Law and Technology & Engineering work shoulder-to-shoulder with clients, ranging from small start-ups and individuals to major multinationals, in virtually every industry imaginable.  

Our work is often complex, yet our mission is simple: to support the UK in a connected world. It guides everything we do, underpinned by Our Values: Courage, Integrity, Excellence, Together and For Better. We use the power of our voice in UK business to spark debate, share ideas and bring about change, using our global network, to draw on expertise from beyond the UK’s borders.

Support for working families

Family comes first at our firm. Our tailored support for working families is designed to help colleagues balance successful work and personal lives, whatever stage of family life they’re at. And it’s not just about children – we know that caring for elder generations and other family members can be an equally difficult balancing act.

  • Our policies and processes aim to provide support and comfort to our working families, parents and carers:
  • We guide people through their journey to becoming parents with our Empowering Parents programme.
  • Our personal and parental leave policies enable colleagues to take time off work for childcare and other family responsibilities.
  • We provide emergency back-up care for dependants if care arrangements fall through.
  • Colleagues can also stretch their benefits to include family members on services like private medical and dental care.
  • Over the summer, we give colleagues time off each week to promote wellbeing.
  • Jump Start provides colleagues with the opportunity to start their weekend half a day early, or if their working hours or commitments don’t support this, on another day during the week.
  • We give all colleagues a day off for their birthday.

Our Families network aims to support our people as they embark on a new stage of family life, provide resources to colleagues with caring responsibilities, and help managers and peers understand the challenges colleagues with family responsibilities face, so they can better support them at work

Embracing flexible working

At KPMG, we operate a flexible hybrid model. Flexible because we put empowerment at the heart of our thinking and hybrid because we work across our UK offices, client sites and university partnership locations. We know that one size certainly doesn’t fit all, so rather than have a set of strict rules, we have guiding principles to support our ‘client-first’ mindset. These principles help leaders and their teams to strike the right balance, based on the needs of our clients, the specific requirements of each engagement and what works for our people.

Wellbeing

We’re committed to making health and wellbeing support accessible to everyone. We provide our colleagues with fast, convenient access to specialist information, advice and treatment when they need it. Colleagues have access to 24/7 remote GP; our BeWell.

service for confidential wellbeing support; private healthcare, dental care, physiotherapy, full health assessments with Nuffield Health and discounted gym memberships. They can also take advantage of our cycle to work scheme, which loans bikes and equipment to our people, to help them discover a more active commute.

“Another attraction for me was that I’ve got two young children, a four year old and a five month old, and there’s a lot of flexibility here. I can work from home a couple of days a week, for example.”

Mark studied e-Business at Liverpool University – a course that combined technology and business. After graduating, he joined a large digital agency based in the North West. He then went on to join a big retailer and met the team from KPMG who were implementing a procurement solution there. Today he’s a Programme Management Office (PMO) Manager based in Manchester.

“When I first came across KPMG, what really appealed to me was the way the team worked, the talent they had and how well they integrated with us as the client.

One of the key things for me was the KPMG reputation – there’s a lot of prestige to it and I feel very proud and privileged to be here. I didn’t think I’d be able to have a career like this at a leading professional services firm being based in the North West. I’d just assumed it would be more about audit and tax, and there’s so much more to it than that.

“I work with some brilliant talent, including the apprentices and graduates whom I mentor, develop and support. It’s really rewarding to be able to share my knowledge and experience to support these colleagues to establish their careers.”
There are always fresh challenges to address, which is perfect for me as a natural problem solver. The team is based in different locations, but we have a really good culture, utilising digital tools to communicate.

I’ve got huge scope to develop here both personally and professionally, working with Senior Managers, Directors and Partners. The opportunities really are endless.”
