One of the Big Four auditors, KPMG, have announced a brand new apprenticeship programme
The professional services firm will take on a whopping 110 apprentices initially. These talented young souls will be located across the country on the KPMG360° programme, which “will offer apprentices a variety of routes to careers within different parts of KPMG".
Apprentices, who will have A-level grades of BCC and five GCSEs grades A-C, will work toward professional qualification.
Marianne Fallon, UK head of corporate affairs at KPMG, said, “KPMG’s success depends on recruiting the best people from the widest possible talent pool… KPMG360° is a bolder move to ensure the long-term diversity of the Professional Services sector.”
David Gauke, Financial Secretary to the Treasury said, “Apprenticeships should be viewed on a par with academic routes, and this scheme is a decisive step towards that.”
