Six reasons to work at KPMG

Working at KPMG

KPMG is a leading provider of tax, audit, and advisory services and is one of over 150 members of the Swiss-based KPMG International Cooperative, a global network of independently operated firms. As an employer, KPMG has offered flexible work opportunities that include part-time, freelance, flexible schedule, seasonal, temporary, and remote jobs in categories like project management, computer & IT, accounting & finance, engineering, and graphic design. The company fosters a diverse, inclusive, and rewarding work environment for its large team and has been ranked on Fortune magazine's list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For. Furthermore, KPMG once received the Innovative Excellence in Workforce Engagement Award from the human resources association WorldatWork.

The KPMG network was established through the 1987 merger of Peat Marwick International and Klynveld Main Goerdeler. Together, its network makes up one of the global Big Four accounting firms, and all of the independent member firms within the cooperative incorporate the KPMG brand into their names. With a multidisciplinary approach and a thorough understanding of its clients’ industries, KPMG helps companies negotiate risks and successfully meet challenges. The company serves clients in industries such as banking, diversified industrials, energy, and natural resources, financial services, food and drink, government and the public sector, insurance, media, private equity, and more.

Six reasons to work at KPMG


1. Personal development


Once you become an assistant we will make your professional start easier with a five-week training course. Our KPMG Business School, a sophisticated educational and development system, will support the timely development of your career. This system consists of hundreds of local as well as international seminars, training courses, and other educational activities, taking advantage of the most modern educational technology including social networks. At KPMG, you can also work towards various distinguished professional certifications (e.g. auditor, tax advisor, ACCA, CISA, MBA, CFA).

2. Internships abroad


As we are part of an international network of firms, our employees have the chance to go on internships to Australia, the US, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and elsewhere. Talented colleagues can broaden their professional experience in other offices of the KPMG global network of advisory firms. Offered internships vary in length and scope and participants can go on short-term or three-month stays or even remain abroad for several years.

3. Social responsibility


We care about what goes on around us. Social responsibility is part of our firm’s culture, our values and our business strategy. We act ethically and transparently, minimise the environmental effects of our business activities and use our expert skills to support the communities in which we function. See for yourself.

4. Work-life balance


Our working hours are flexible, and if a project’s nature allows, we can also work from home. Every year, we can spend 25 days on vacation, including three days of firm-wide leave, traditionally between Christmas and New Year’s. It is possible to extend one’s holidays by taking compensatory leave for worked overtime. When preparing for professional exams and certifications, we can ask for study leave.

KPMG organizes cultural events and supports the sports activities of its employees. For our bigger departments, we organize group meetings combined with team-building activities and entertainment, twice a year. In the fall, our employees get the chance to take their partners to the theatre; our employee’s children enjoy our annual St. Nicholas Party. Close to the end of the year, all of us get together for our yearly Christmas Party. We stay in touch with former employees and annually invite them to a KPMG Alumni Party. A lot of alumni have become our loyal clients.

5. Friendly work environment


A supportive and friendly work environment means a lot to us. We all are on a first-name basis, regardless of age or position. Our doors are always open, be they to a Partner’s office or to that of a Manager or Secretary. In senior positions, we aim to share our experience, to advise others in their tasks and lead them towards their further development. We respect individuality as well as differing opinions – what’s important is our common success. We know that our work is often very demanding, giving us all the more reason to value a pleasant work environment and a friendly and supportive team spirit. We know that it is teamwork and courtesy which help our employees to grow and attain the best results.

6. Remuneration and benefits


Our employees’ remunerations are above-standard and reflect our standing on the market and the importance of our staff. Our employees also receive financial bonuses in the form of variable salary components, extraordinary bonuses, and overtime pay. The overall salary level depends on an employee’s position and the results of the firm and the individual. Our cafeteria-style benefit system offers a wide range of benefits annually worth several tens of thousands of crowns. Benefits offered include meal vouchers and the services of more than 4 000 service providers, including insurance, travel, culture, sports, wellness, health care, and education.
