  • Company: KPMG
  • Location: London
  • Closing Date: 30-09-2022


Our Discovery Virtual Work Experience programme has been designed with students like you in mind – bright, curious and enthusiastic. As well as giving you the chance to gain an invaluable overview of the professional services sector, this programme will give you an excellent virtual insight into the work we do, our culture and people – and provide you with some interactive learning opportunities to enhance your skills.

Available for students finishing Year 13/S5-S6 in 2022 and looking to start an apprenticeship career in autumn 2022, this the perfect chance to discover if KPMG is the place for you. You’ll get a chance to virtually interact with other students, participate in skills workshops to develop some of the key skills you’ll need to thrive – meeting colleagues from across the firm along the way.

This virtual experience will also give you the chance to get ahead and be fast-tracked through the recruitment process for one of our Apprenticeship Programmes upon completion of your Discovery experience.
