Careers for graduates: learn how you can use your data capabilities
Our Chief Data Office (CDO) team is the centre of excellence for data capabilities within KPMG Australia. Our vision is to ensure KPMG Australia is a leader in using the right data at the right time to drive smart decisions and unlock new business opportunities. Our team achieves this through two main approaches: by developing a data community, data governance and thought leadership across our firm, and to deliver monetisable data products that enable each division to better support our clients.
The data community supports our data analysts, scientists, engineers and other data practitioners with the right thought leadership, tools and standards, and a general sense of community to better enable their careers and help our clients. The data products are also an extension of our data capabilities by enabling our data practitioners to have a conversation with our clients around benchmarks, potential areas that maybe at risk and to enable management controls to improve their business.
KPMG’s CDO is a step in the right direction as the firm understands the importance of data as a strategic asset for us and our clients. The CDO will help establish KPMG as a leader in data and enable us to better help engage with our clients, and to improve our own data capabilities.
As a new team, there is a variety of roles that can be adopted in our journey together. An average day here within KPMG will differ based on what role you play within the team and how you can contribute and express your abilities. Though the roles will be initially ambiguous, this is an opportunity to establish yourself and your growth.

There is potential to support a select number of these outcomes along your journey here.
Everything you will learn within your first year at KPMG with CDO will depend upon your ambition and desire to learn. As a growing team, there is room to support in different capacities and grow in all aspects of your career.
There are a few key recommendations to help maximise your growth in your first year:
The best part of the role is working shoulder-to-shoulder with a great team and joining us on a journey to establish data excellence within KPMG. The team consists of leaders in the field of data with decades of global experience across the many industries.
Being a smaller team, we are able to provide more freedom and responsibility to help you grow and achieve your outcomes. This will bring you closer to more senior stakeholders, and more room to learn, council and grow. There is never a dull day on the team and our recommendation is to be outcome-focused and feel rewarded from the journey and vision we are establishing.
