When working in Audit, you are provided with structured training covering new and revised accounting and auditing standards, topical issues as well as industry specific training to ensure you perform at the highest quality levels. Our learning and development teams are continuously in contact with engagement teams throughout the region to understand where you need further guidance and thus ensuring that focused training is delivered as and when required.

Our support is guaranteed if you wish to deepen your tax knowledge by following external courses or programmes leading to an academic qualification or relevant tax knowledge. International centres such as KPMG’s EU Tax Centre help you understand the complexities of certain tax developments, enable you to better predict how rules will develop and how to leverage opportunities and minimize risks arising from tax developments. All this is in addition to the endless on-the-job training opportunities that you will get.
