KPMG Business Services – Apprenticeship Autumn 2022

  • Company: KPMG
  • Location: Watford, Birmingham
  • Closing Date: 31-07-2022


The KPMG Business Services Apprenticeship is a two-year programme where you’ll be fully supported with guidance from KPMG teams, as well as our external training provider, in everything there is to learn about Business Services.

KPMG’s Business Services (KBS) function is the single provider of internal business services, advice and expertise to KPMG. KBS is structured around three groups:

  • Business Partnering – providing strategic support and insight to business leaders
  • Centres of Expertise – deep specialist expertise and delivery of transformation initiatives
  • Operational Excellence Hubs – delivering services and support that keeps our business running efficiently

Those joining this programme will be based at our Watford or Birmingham offices, spending their first year within the Administration Services KPMG (ASK) team and will undertake structured work, activities and project opportunities across our KBS function. This varied experience will provide you with a unique and exciting opportunity to learn about the breadth of support that is provided to enable our colleagues and clients to succeed. On completion of your first foundation year, you will have the opportunity to specialise within an OEH team.

Throughout the apprenticeship, you’ll develop a host of core skills to help you succeed in the workplace. From delivering and working on projects, developing a customer focused mindset and learning how to work as part of a professional team. We’ll make sure you have the support you need to take on new challenges and thrive within a professional workplace environment. You’ll have the opportunity to understand the work the teams do, build a diverse range of experiences and grow successful networks – whilst working on anything from the recruitment of new talent to the provision of administrative support.
