Job description

Our work in the Regulatory & Risk Advisory team is not only interesting and varied, but it's also high profile. With the current economic climate and in a world of increasing complexity, clients and regulators are focusing ever more closely on risk and regulatory issues. For example, we're helping them overcome global issues like Climate Risk and the rise of digital assets.

Financial Services firm are at the forefront of the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) regulatory agenda with governments turning their attention towards how the Financial sector can contribute to sustainable economic development. We advise our clients on dynamic regulatory compliance programmes and help them to integrate sustainability into risk management functions to ensure they are doing right by the environment and society.

We help our clients solve business problems by developing tailored and pragmatic solutions that make a meaningful and positive difference. It's become an area of high priority, change and growth within KPMG too. The work we do helps to make Financial Services safer and protects clients and their customers. This is what makes this an endlessly fascinating area for new graduate joiners.

Based in either our Risk or Regulatory team, our three-year programme gives graduates the chance to build their experience and develop their expertise in risk management across the entire financial sector, as part of our 'learn for a lifetime' philosophy. Sectors include:

  • Banking Risk and Regulatory: Banking Risk & Regulatory work involves understanding clients’ issues and providing support, advice and project delivery across their Boards, risk functions and finance functions.
  • Insurance Risk and Regulatory: Here we help clients to respond to intervention and change from the Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority.
  • Wealth and Asset Management: KPMG's Wealth and Asset Management Regulatory practice looks after the interests, and helps, a broad range of clients, from global asset managers with operations in multiple jurisdictions to smaller wealth managers who are predominantly UK focused.

Our people have always worked flexibly – so this way of working isn't new for us.
