In addition to being an international workplace, with colleagues from all over the world, KPMG also believes in a relatively horizontal management structure. This means that people listen to each other’s ideas and, more importantly, that people are never afraid to share their ideas. Whether you are working on a project on your own or in a team, there is always someone to help bounce off ideas. Sometimes some of the best ideas form in the break-room over a cup of coffee.
It is a philosophy that shines through every part of KPMG, starting with the Graduate Programme, where you spend two weeks overseas together with all the other graduates. It teaches you to appreciate and recognize the benefits of other perspectives. Above all else, that is what KPMG does best: we look at things from new angles and come up with ideas no one has thought of before. It is part of why we are the best at what we do. It keeps us on our toes.
When you get out of bed in the morning, you know today is never going to be the same as yesterday. Unless you count the days when today turns into tomorrow, and you are all still working on an exciting project not because your bosses are telling you to but because you want to deliver something to your clients that you can be proud of. Nothing beats that.
“We look at things from new angles.”
