International students have the opportunity to apply for positions at KPMG.

International students

At KPMG we firmly believe that a workforce containing a diverse range of backgrounds, skills and experiences helps us to achieve our business objectives.

KPMG in Australia accepts applications from international students for our Vacation and Graduate Program in Adelaide, Brisbane, Hobart, Launceston, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney who have not yet obtained their Australian permanent residency but have full time working rights in Australia. (Note – This opportunity is not available in our Canberra office due to client requirements).


To be eligible to apply, candidates will need to demonstrate that they have full time working rights within Australia at the time of their application. We will accept applications from candidates who hold one of the following visa types:

  • Temporary Graduate Subclass 485 Visa and provide evidence of an invitation to apply for the Skilled Independent Subclass 189/ 190 visa
  • Skilled Independent Subclass 189 or 190 Visa
  • Subclass 820/801 partner visa
  • Secondary employer sponsored visas e.g. Subclass 457, 482 or 186 Visas (where the primary visa holder is a family member).

Candidates will also need to demonstrate their:

  • ability to obtain permanent residency
  • legal right to work in Australia up until such time that permanent residency is granted
  • completion of an approved English language test and proof that they have reached ‘Superior English’ by meeting required benchmarks as set by the Department of Home Affairs
  • in line with immigration requirements, if you hold a passport from the UK, USA, Canada or the Republic of Ireland you are not required to provide evidence of English language proficiency.

KPMG will not sponsor students for the purposes of residency. Successful candidates who are not permanent residents when made an offer of employment will be required, as a condition of their employment, to independently apply for and obtain permanent residency.

Information obtained in the process of assessing your eligibility to apply for graduate employment with KPMG will not be used in any way other than determining your suitability to apply for and obtain permanent residency.

Only applications from international students that meet the above criteria, and therefore qualify for permanent residence after graduation, will be accepted.
