Job description

As a constantly changing and increasingly high profile field, tax can offer a surprisingly broad range of career paths to ambitious graduates. As part of a dynamic and successful area of our business, our Tax Teams work with a wide range of organisations and individuals, helping them to implement the tax approaches that best suit their commercial needs within domestic and international legal and regulatory requirements.

Taxation is a fast moving field where our advice can prove invaluable to clients. Every day, in ways big and small, we make a meaningful and positive difference for them. This is partly because complex issues can be open to interpretation, and partly due to ever-changing legislation that can have major implications for our clients. Our job is to keep up with those developments, advising them of new risks and opportunities that come up.

We offer advice to help our clients manage tax issues as digital transforms business models and prompts significant changes to taxation policy. Across the spectrum of company and personal tax issues we offer holistic advice spanning international tax, transfer pricing, VAT and deal advisory tax and other tax service lines. Our People Services team advise on all aspects of employee reward, as well as managing tax issues for a global workforce, whist our Private Client teams support high net worth individuals and entrepreneurial families manage their tax affairs and preserve their legacies.

With such a wide-ranging remit, Tax can offer a variety of challenging and high profile projects as part of a stimulating graduate career – and our programme is an excellent foundation for that. Tackling challenges at the heart of client organisations, you’ll develop a broad commercial understanding whilst gaining valuable technical skills and professional qualifications.

We’re reimagining how we work at KPMG. Our firm is creating a tech-driven business to empower and equip our people to be outstanding in delivery – through inspiring workspaces, innovative ways to collaborate and hybrid ways of working. In your role, you’ll work flexibly across your location region – at KPMG offices, engagement sites and from home.

Training and Development:

The training and development of our people is critical to the future success of our business. We want all of our trainees to embrace a growth mindset of learning every day, which is why we have created a rich curriculum and learning community to help trainees build their skills and fulfil their potential. This ranges from an immersive 5-day induction experience, formal training courses, leadership knowledge bites, learning journals, online courses and networking events – all aligned to our life-long learning strategy and part of our overall student package.

In addition, in Tax, we currently offer the CFAB ATT CTA qualifications including those that are joining our Scottish offices.

The CFAB ATT CTA Programme uses innovative technology and is delivered via a blend of Online Classroom Live and recorded courses in addition to in-centre classroom courses. It also has wrap-around support which consists of dedicated professional coaches, online portal content and live and recorded additional study sessions which means there is a form of support for your every need.

This blended approach enables you to study and learn the content at a pace suited to your learning style, but ensures all are at the right technical level prior to stepping into revision elements so you can focus on your exam technique before the exam. The structure of the programme spreads your examinations over the lifetime of the training contract so that you are able to build up your technical knowledge, and can gradually apply what you are learning in training to your workplace experience.
