Job Description

If you are interested in understanding how businesses operate, what risks they face and how decisions are made, then Internal Audit, Risk and Compliance Services (IARCS) is for you. Joining us means you’ll develop and refine your specialist business and accounting skills by improving our clients’ governance, risk management and controls.

Our clients rely on us to provide valuable insight and commercial recommendations by conducting in-depth analysis and assessments of data and business processes. Our services incorporate; Internal Audit and Risk Assurance, Governance Risk and Compliance.

  • Internal Audit and Risk Assurance - Internal Audit is about independent assurance that an organisation's risk management, governance and internal control processes are operating effectively. We have a professional duty to provide an unbiased and objective view, and we report and advise. We apply a combination of assurance and consulting to look beyond financial risks and financial statements to consider wider issues such as the organisation's reputation, growth, environmental factors and the way it treats its employees. Areas of focus can include: Audits of processes and functions; Themed and rapid-response reviews; Regulatory assurance and Enterprise level risk reviews.
  • Governance Risk and Compliance - robust governance is critical to businesses in a changing environment, and as the landscape evolves, new risks and compliance requirements emerge. We help organisations in areas such as: Governance and risk services; Internal controls transformation and, Internal controls compliance services.

On our 3 year IARCS Graduate Programme you’ll build your commercial and financial awareness by servicing the companies we work with across a variety of sectors, supported by a structured internal training program and study towards the ACA or CA (in Scotland) qualification.

We offer two different training paths for our IARCS Graduate Programmes – Empowered or Intensive. All programmes take 3 years to complete; they just offer different routes to achieving success. Our Empowered Programme offers you the chance to work and study near your KPMG office and follow blended work experience and study (classroom and online learning) towards ACA or CA (Scotland) qualification - local to your home office location. Some travel will be required for work and exams will be spread out over the 3 year programme.

Like the organisations we work with, we're having to adapt. This means new working patterns, physical adjustments in our offices and new ways of interacting with our colleagues as well as the organisations we work with - we are harnessing technology to help underpin this change.
