I joined KPMG in my efforts to explore tax professional career growth and KPMG has never disappoint me to date. I have gained tax compliance, tax advisory, international tax and transfer pricing skills.
I have worked with a lot of professionals in other countries in the KPMG network. This has helped me to gain global experience.
The tax professionals I work with are just as enthusiastic as I am. There are real camaraderie, one that extends beyond the office. It’s great to connect with the people you spend most of my daytime with. I have made a lot of genuine friends at KPMG office. Every single day I enjoy chatting with other KPMG professionals on the social media groups.
I am a very religious person who fitted well into the diversity workforce with different belief systems. I am respected regardless of my spiritual belief system. The KPMG values are the same as my religious belief system. As a result I have lived a single lifestyle and serve as deacon at church.
The KPMG culture is such that we fly together and drag each other to great heights. The fact that every individual contribution is valued makes everyone willing to share ideas and help others. I’m never afraid to ask for help, no matter what the issue is. The managing partner always encourage us to reach out when we need coaching and advice. He always say “Consult if not sure, if you fly alone, you will die alone”.
KPMG has taught me to be committed to my community. In this regard, besides the tax related duties, I assist in championing the corporate social responsibility initiatives, training of clerks and organising seminars and workshops for clients. The experience has molded me to become a most sought after part time ACCA Business Tax and part time ACCA Advanced tax lecturer. The combined veteran experience has attracted more responsibilities such as appointment into the Educational Committee of Zimbabwe Institute of Tax (ZITA) and examiner for tax modules.
KPMG is the organization that is committed to my personal development progress. The regular goal settings, performance evaluations and mentoring programs constantly empower me take on new challenges. I am not scared of learning something new at my work place. I am always above board in a country where the tax legislation is constantly changing. KPMG is known as the source of latest and up to date technical knowledge. I enjoy the fact that our clients are confident with us. I am happy to be part of the extra ordinary people. I am confident that I am a great and extraordinary person. Of course, I will always bring the ship home.
