With offices across the UK, we work with organisations from small start-ups and individuals to major multinationals. Our people have incredibly diverse backgrounds and each brings their own unique perspective.
We aim to attract exceptional people from diverse backgrounds who can deliver real results for our clients and drive the firm forward. If you are looking to Return to Work or for a part-time role, with a more flexible approach to work that can fit around your lifestyle, KPMG have a range of opportunities that will develop your skills.
We expect a lot from you, but you can expect as much in return. From options for Intelligent Working, our commitment to getting you back into work and our extensive Employee Networks offer an inclusive environment where everyone feels empowered.
That’s why we believe we’re the place where you can develop your career faster and with more support than anywhere else.
Everybody has their own unique circumstances. We’ll try hard to accommodate yours, creating a schedule that works for you.
It’s called Intelligent Working. That means considering any working schedule that’s outside the traditional working pattern, focusing on outcomes rather than time spent at work. The aim is to achieve the right balance for everyone, enabling us to help our people build their careers without sacrificing their personal priorities. It’s all about focusing on outcomes and trusting our people to do the right thing for themselves and our firm.

Like many professional employers, there has been pockets of the business where flexible working is more complex. This has certainly applied to Deal Advisory, however surprisingly there are many examples of our colleagues who have adopted flexible working to fit both business and individual needs.
All our Deal Advisory roles now offer Intelligent Working practices.

“It’s one firm but we do so many different things, from marketing to accounting and technology.”
Nana joined us after taking a six year career break to look after her children – in which time she also set up an online business. She’s a Senior Manager in our new Pensions Centre of Excellence, a division created as part of our audit quality transformation programme to bring together a group of pension’s specialists.
“As a Senior Manager, I work with our largest audited entities, focusing on the pension’s side of things. I plan our audit work, deliver it and manage my team throughout the process.
One of the reasons why I like working here is the fact that there’s a lot of flexibility. I support audit colleagues with technical areas of our work, which enables me too often work from home.
“I actually joined under the Return to Audit programme. Whoever thought of that, needs to be congratulated, because they thought of everything that worried me. Can I work flexibly? Will I come in at the same level where I left off? I read about the role and I thought, ‘I can’t believe this!’ It’s perfect.”
I joined KPMG because I wanted a senior role that would make full use of my experience and expertise. But at the same time, I work part-time on an annualised day’s contract, which means you just work a percentage of days in a year.
I think it’s a very authentic working environment. We’re sincere. We’re true to ourselves. There’s no falsification in the way that people work and interact. And for me, what particularly resonated is the fact that I see senior partners who are women, who are mothers, who might also be working flexibly.
There’s a really collaborative spirit. We’re all in pursuit of excellence in everything that we do. To do well here, you have to buy into that and really value it. If you do, you’ll thrive.”
