Now more than ever, an auditor's work is forward-thinking, innovative and brings you straight to the heart of business issues. With the introduction of big data, analytics and the transformation of technology, the role of an Auditor is ever-changing and evolving.

Audit at KPMG takes you behind the scenes of some of the world's most renowned companies, allowing you to provide market-leading insight, critically informed solutions and trustworthy expertise to understand every aspect of a business from the inside out.

One of the best parts of Audit here is that you're working on something different all the time. In our work, we help our clients establish that their financial statements are presented in a true and fair way to their stakeholders.

Can Audit fuel your future? Definitely:

  • if you want to access top tools and technologies to compete in our fast-moving market
  • if you want to play detective and gain insider knowledge of complex and dynamic businesses
  • if you enjoy interacting with a variety of people and achieving goals as a team

Within your first month at KPMG you'll have:

  • met your whole cohort, your buddy and completed a jam-packed two-day induction
  • been on Grad Camp – our culturally immersive induction held in a marae
  • begun to understand what does and doesn't make a business tick

In your first six months at KPMG you'll have:

  • met your key clients and visited their offices, often working from their sites
  • joined the social club at KPMG and activities like skiing, boat trips and mini golf
  • met with the L&D team to prepare a further study plan and how it will fit around your work

By the end of your first year at KPMG you'll have:

  • made connections for life and worked on some amazing engagements
  • maybe been asked to become a buddy for our new interns or grads
  • fuelled New Zealand's prosperity by doing work that matters

As an Audit Graduate or Intern at KPMG, we devote significant resources to growing you as an Audit professional; you'll be able to combine technology-based training, self-taught programmes and immersive classroom-style learning to build and develop your career. Joining Audit at KPMG means building a future, not just a career.

Audit Data and Innovation

We are also looking for Graduates to join the Audit Data & Innovation Team. Sitting within the broader Audit Division this team is responsible for providing the latest Data and Analytics tools to the audit process across the country. We are seeking Auditors with an added interest in Data and Analytics to join our growing team based in Auckland and Wellington. Please flag your interest and any relevant exposure in your application!

In order to apply for Audit or Audit Data and Innovation you will need to have studied (or intend to study) the prerequisite papers to enable you to commence CPA or CAANZ programs upon your graduation.
