Life as a KPMG Experienced Hire in KPMG

My KPMG story started on Monday 24 February 2014. Before then, I had previously worked with Horwath Dafinone (Chartered Accountants) and Ernst & Young.

I joined KPMG as a Semi-Senior. Upon resumption, I was determined to, among other things, understand the KPMG culture which I considered to be the bedrock of my future success with the Firm. I was immediately impressed by the efforts put in place, by everyone I met, to assist me in settling into the Firm.

Over the course of my 40 months experience with KPMG, I have had the privilege of working with some of the most extraordinary minds and the level of exposure has been awesome. KPMG’s style is an inclusive one, which encourages all team members, regardless of their levels, to speak up to contribute to technical discussions. What I have found most interesting is that there is always a solution, within KPMG, to virtually every challenge that a client might be faced with. The speed at which we respond to clients’ needs is practically unrivalled and the relentless focus that we have consistently placed on the quality of our work is the difference that our clients see in us.

Early in my career in the Firm, I was trusted to work on a project that required me to engage in a technical discussion with a Director at the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) to obtain certain clarifications for a client. I discharged my responsibility excellently to the amazement of both the FIRS Director and my senior team members! This experience inspired my confidence and further confirmed the positive impression that I had about the Firm before I joined.

Today, I am well convinced and feel a great sense of pride that I took the right step in joining KPMG. I have gained significant leverage over the exposure I had prior to the commencement of my KPMG story and I can only look forward to the future with pride, knowing that I belong to this great family of extraordinary professionals.
