KPMG ups graduate intake
Friday, 23 April 2010
Recent university leavers looking for graduate jobs in business management may be interested to hear that 'big four' accounting firm KPMG has increased its UK graduate intake this year.
The firm said it was able to do this because market demand for accountancy services were on the rise so now it can increase the number of graduates it plans to recruit for the September intake to 820, an increase on last year when they only took 600.
Including school leavers and interns, the number of junior positions on offer at the firm has risen to 1,000 after it opened up 100 more places than originally announced in February.
Michelle Quest, the head of people at KPMG, said: "The signs are - in other employers as well as KPMG - that the situation is improving. There are places for the right people."
KPMG's plans fall relatively in line with rivals PricewaterhouseCoopers and Deloitte, who both recruit around 1,000 university leavers a year, while Ernst & Young is planning to take on around 950 graduates and interns this year.
