Audit Trainee Programme
The KPMG Audit Trainee Programme is a 2-year programme aimed at developing your technical skills as an auditor. The trainee programme starts with a week-long on-boarding programme, where you will meet the other graduates and trainees, learn about KPMG and receive the training you need to start your career.
As a trainee, you will receive audit technical training and personal development training. At the same time, you will be enrolled in an HD programme to learn the fundamentals. In addition to learning classic audit techniques, where you will apply your knowledge from your studies to the job, you will also work with new technologies as we focus on digitalizing the audit process at KPMG. We believe in harnessing the power of artificial intelligence and using disruptive data and analytics tools to make audit more modern and relevant for today’s society.

Patrick explains: “Here, many complete their education and have bought an apartment – and they have savings instead of huge student loans.“
Working at KPMG, you will meet many different types of clients, and no two days are the same.

“It was one of my very first clients – there I was, on my way to an inventory count. And I have no idea what it’s going to be like…. It turns out that I’m supposed to count explosives at a restricted military area, where we enter a bunker…”
Audit = Excel, right? True, but as Patrick explains, working as an auditor is much more than just numbers and formulas.

“Obviously, Excel is a big part of it, and there is also some truth to these stereotypes [about auditors]. But we like that part, too… Often, we’re also out talking to a lot of people and doing all sorts of other things, as well.”
What is it like to start at KPMG as an Audit Trainee?
Click on the video and hear Therese tell about her first day at KPMG.
“Everyone was really nice, and if you had a question, you could just go and ask, “How am I supposed to do this now?” And everyone was happy to help.”
As an Audit Trainee at KPMG, you will have the chance to combine your university studies with hands-on experience.
Click on the video and hear Therese explain why she chose to start her career as an Audit Trainee.
“When I finished high school, I was really unsure about what I wanted to do afterwards, and I think I still had some doubts before I started at KPMG…. . I wanted to get out and gain hands-on experience. So then I just thought that this was a really good combination – the fact that you could work full-time and still study on the side and get a university degree.”
