What is KPMG 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 –

  • Operational Excellence Hubs -delivering services and support that keeps our business running efficiently.

On this apprenticeship, you’ll work within our Operational Excellence Hubs (OEH). OEH is made up of innovative and collaborative teams that provide services to support our client-facing colleagues and ensure the firm runs smoothly.  These services include dealing with customer queries, running day-to-day operations, managing records, generating reports and providing executive assistant and administrative support.
