About the programme
This programme is aimed primarily at women seeking an insight into careers in Technology at KPMG. You’ll have the opportunity to network with women from our Technology teams, gain and insight into the work they do and discover the variety of career opportunities available in Technology.
The programme is packed with practical takeaways. You’ll be empowered to develop your professional skills - from standing out in interviews to effectively managing projects. We’ll give you an insider’s view into the range of industries we work in, the new technologies we’re working with and some of the big issues facing our clients - from cyber security, to managing business risks using technology.
This is a fantastic opportunity to fast-track through our recruitment process. Whilst on the programme, we’ll give you the chance to take part in an assessment, and if successful, secure a position on our Technology Vacation Programme, starting in summer 2020. More information about our Vacation Programmes can be found here.
