KPMG, IT Advisory (Management Consultancy)

Information technology is transforming the way companies, governments and other organisations do business. It creates exciting opportunities, but also exposes organisations to new risks.

We are looking for graduates with a business focused approach, who can develop advanced IT skills. You don’t need to be a computer programmer – or even be studying a degree in IT – but you do need to have a sound knowledge of business and appreciate how IT can be used to attain key business goals.

At KPMG we’re open to all bright minds and by embracing difference we attract the right personalities – team players and forward thinkers who value honest and open communication. If this sounds like you and you want to make a real contribution, look at the exciting career opportunities at KPMG. We are open to all degree disciplines.
