    Overview

  • 1. Please give an overview of the insight and what was involved on a day-to-day basis.
  • The insight was a group of 24 female students and was a three day programme. The first day was in London and the recruitment team did a fantastic job of welcoming all of us to KPMG. The following two days were virtual (10am-5pm approximately), with the final day being an assessment centre called a launch pad. The sessions were incredibly insightful and it was great to hear from a variety of colleagues!

    Business Insight

  • 3. What was it like understanding all about the business and potential roles available?
  • Incredibly insightful learning about all the different roles within Deals Advisory and working out which ones would suit my skill set the most. The sessions were fantastic (running for approximately 30 mins to one hour) and there were plenty of breaks too! It was fascinating to hear KPMG's work in ESG and climate risk within valuations, as well as Deal Executions and addressing the impacts of M&A in terms of organisational change.
