Section 1 Introduction to the programme About the Work Experience Programme This programme is a fantastic opportunity for students interested in a career in business and/or accountancy. Applicants should be open to new experiences and willing to make the most of their time with KPMG. Applicants must be on track to meet the minimum requirements for our Audit School/College Leaver Programme (ABB at A level or equivalent with grade B in GCSE English Language and Maths). Our aim is to provide an insight into life at KPMG through a range of planned activities, which will simulate many of the tasks our staff carry out on a daily / weekly basis and will require application of the kinds of skills and behaviours that we look for in our people. The week will also give students the chance to experience and observe a real life working environment in a vibrant professional services setting through work shadowing and day to day contact with our people. Students will be given the opportunity to discuss careers and question our staff about their career choices. Students will be working in small groups and advice / support will be on hand at all times from a member of KPMG staff. At KPMG we are committed to the aim that young people from all backgrounds, understand business and their future role in it, and are better able to make informed choices about their future. We understand the role that we can play in achieving this aim and our work experience programme is just one of a number of activities being undertaken by KPMG to help support young people within our communities.
