KPMG Digital Submission
The KPMG digital submission is a digital recording that you upload yourself. You have 3 days to complete a 2 minute submission which will highlight your career aspirations and ability to communicate them.
KPMG Assessment Centre
The KPMG assessment centre is now called the launch pad recruitment event. It’s the final stage of the recruitment process and includes a range of exercises, meetings, talks and interviews. Some of the key ones are highlighted below.
KPMG Analysis Exercise
The KPMG analysis exercise will also take place at the assessment day. You’ll be presented with information and be given an hour to write up a report with your recommendations. Ensure that you address all aspects within the information provided and be clear in your analysis.
KPMG E-tray Exercise
The KPMG e-tray exercise makes use of a simulation in which you receive e-mails which you are expected to read, prioritise and process in order to complete several tasks. These tasks are representative of those that you might be expected to undertake in a work or business setting. This exercise is laptop based and may also include voicemails or other types of messages.
KPMG Simulated Meeting
KPMG have two simulated meetings, one with a client and one internal. These are designed to show the assessors how you would handle these types of meetings. It will also provide you with an insight into the type of experiences that you would have if you joined the company.
In your KPMG interviews you’ll meet a range of people from graduate trainees to partners. The interviews will include both aspirations and standard competency based questions such as ‘give an example of a time you worked in a difficult team’.
