Join us and build your own exceptional future.

Join us and build your own exceptional future.

Audit is about examining organisations and ensuring their published annual accounts are a 'true and fair' reflection of their financial performance.

In Audit, we undertake work that affects investment decisions, inspires confidence in public sector expenditure and supports economic growth. Some of the world’s biggest companies rely on us to provide independent insight, challenge and high-quality audit expertise. Today, more than ever in disruptive times, audit is a function needed by society and in the future, to support growth.

As an Audit apprentice, you’ll focus on delivering high-quality audits. You’ll learn to use new technologies and tools such as artificial intelligence and predictive analytics to analyse data and produce quality audit outcomes - all whilst studying towards a valuable professional qualification. You'll gain a breadth of experience as well as become equipped with valuable technical skills, broad commercial understanding and in-depth knowledge of different industry sectors - from the biggest multinationals through to innovative start-ups.

You'll have the resources and support you need to learn to handle each audit engagement with confidence. You'll work as part of a team and may spend time on site at the companies you're auditing, in virtual or hybrid forms of audit delivery. From the start, you'll be working on complex projects alongside some of the brightest minds in business and benefit from learning every day. 

Years 1 and 2

Once you join the programme, you will have regular conversations about your career. Your foundation year will help you transition into life at KPMG and develop your professional skills and knowledge.

Years 3, 4 and 5

You’ll continue your professional development through a range of learning opportunities and build your technical skills through Audit engagements.

Like the companies we audit, 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.

Training and development

The training and development of our people is critical to the future success of our business.  We want all of our Apprentices to embrace a growth mindset of learning every day, which is why we have created a rich curriculum and learning community to help trainees build their skills and fulfil their potential.  This ranges from an immersive 5-day induction experience, formal training courses, leadership knowledge bites, learning journals, online courses and networking events – all aligned to our life-long learning strategy and part of our overall student package.

In addition as part of your KPMG Audit Gibraltar Apprenticeship you will complete the AAT Level 3 & 4 plus the Level 7 ACA/CA Professional Qualification, alongside our UK apprentices. On occasion you will be expected to attend the UK-based face to face course.

The KPMG Gibraltar Apprenticeship uses innovative technology and is delivered via a blend of Online Classroom Live and Recorded courses plus in-centre classroom courses. This blended approach enables you to study and learn the content at a pace suited to your learning style, but ensures all are at the right technical level at every stage of the qualification and apprenticeship. The structure of the programme spreads the AAT and ACA/CA examinations over the lifetime of the five year training agreement so that you are able to build up your technical knowledge, and can continuously apply what you are learning in training to your workplace experience through your apprenticeship skills and behaviours and off-the-job (OTJ) training. You will have both have wrap around support which consists of dedicated professional coaches, online portal content and live and recorded additional study sessions, which means there is a form of support for your every need.
