KPMG is a multinational professional services firm. Recognised as one of the Big Four, KPMG provides tax, audit and advisory services worldwide and employs over 200,000 people. Roles at KPMG are highly sought after, and understanding the application process (including the importance of the various assessments) will help you to be more prepared.

KPMG Delivering Outcomes Online Assessment

In a similar way to the transforming small businesses assessment, the KPMG Delivering Outcomes online assessment is blended, so it combines situational judgement skills with written exercises and video interviews.

Moving deeper into the fictional but realistic scenario, you will have insight into your chosen business area, and will need to rank your response to questions based on what you would do in each situation.

You will also be asked to answer some questions on paper, and provide answers through video in some cases too. The video portion gives you two minutes to clearly and accurately answer the questions and provide more information for each question, with some preparation time beforehand.

The recruiters want to see you answering confidently, looking at the camera rather than notes, and demonstrating your knowledge and opinions clearly.

Again, this test is untimed, with the only expectation that it is completed within five calendar days. KPMG suggests that this part of the assessment will usually take about 60 minutes.

If you are successful, you will be invited to complete the third assessment.

Critical Thinker

This is a timed assessment that takes place online, facilitated by a member of the recruitment team.

You will be invited to a Microsoft Teams meeting along with other candidates, and with your audio muted and your video connected, you will be asked to complete 10 numerical reasoning questions across two sections.

You will have 30 minutes to complete this test, and if successful you will be asked to attend the next stage: the Virtual Launch Pad.

Virtual Launch Pad

In previous years, the Launch Pad was an all-day event, with a few hundred attendees looking for roles across all sectors. Starting with breakfast and a presentation, applicants were invited to take part in group exercises, analysis projects, one-on-one interviews and given the opportunity to network.

This is what is known as an assessment centre, and we have some tips to help you be successful at these.

The Virtual Launch Pad is both a final assessment and an opportunity for applicants to learn – from meeting personnel to understanding more about each business area. Moving online, the Virtual Launch Pad offers the same opportunities for recruiters to assess you, just in an online environment.

You can expect to take part in the following activities:

Group Exercise. In small groups, you will have a brief and some tasks to complete. This is an opportunity to demonstrate both teamwork and leadership skills.

Analysis. You will be provided with a brief, and asked to write a report based on the available information. In the report you will need to include detailed recommendations including specific actions around profitability, as well as highlighting strengths and weaknesses.

Partner Interview. In this one-on-one interview, you will have the opportunity to meet with a member of the KPMG team, who will ask you behavioural questions that will align with the key KPMG values.

You will also have a chance to really demonstrate your interest in the role by asking questions of the interviewer.

KPMG’s 11 Key Behavioural Capabilities

Keep these 11 characteristics in mind throughout the recruitment process, and use them to structure your responses:

Career Motivation

Why did you choose to apply for KPMG in particular? What role do you want to perform, in what programme and in what sector? The recruiters want to see that you have done your research, you understand KPMG and the way the business works – and that you want a career with them.

Drive Quality

Employees at KPMG are always expected to achieve exceptional results using their initiative and personal drive – for partners and for customers.

Demonstrate Integrity

All employees are expected to support an ethical environment, value rules and act in accordance with regulations. Decisions need to be made with integrity in mind.

Critical Thinker

You will be given the autonomy to make your own decisions, so it is important that you can critically evaluate and interpret information to drive your next move.

Resilient Performer

Throughout your life, both professionally and personally, you will have challenges that need to be overcome. To be successful at KPMG, it is not about avoiding challenges, but rather how you react to perform at your best.

Leverage Technology

Technology changes quickly, and at KPMG employees are expected to embrace what is new, and be knowledgeable about the latest disruptors.

Communicate Effectively

Passionate and professional communication is at the heart of KPMG. Positive lasting impressions are made with colleagues and customers through effective communication.

Foster Innovation

A career at KPMG is an environment of increasing change, so applicants and employees need to be comfortable with uncertainty and able to be flexible in their approach to new tasks. Innovation and initiative helps change be positive.

Credible Connector

If you thrive on teamwork, know how to build deep relationships and enjoy discussing ideas, then you are a credible communicator – and exactly what KPMG wants to see in their employees.

Show Curiosity

KPMG is a company that wants employees to have the drive to develop. It provides the tools to help you grow in your role; all you need to do is provide the curiosity and willingness to learn.

Purposeful Collaborator

Every single employee has a unique perspective, and the diversity that can be found in thought and experience will deliver great results if collaboration is purposeful.

Reviews of our KPMG tests

What our customers say about our KPMG tests

  • India

    May 21, 2022

    Data Interpretation

    I like the fact that it is a free test and somehow helps us to practice and evaluate ourselves better.

  • Russian Federation

    May 08, 2022

    Good examples to practice

    Good examples with relevant level of complexity. I would prefer the data labels on charts to be statically placed on the image rather then popping up.

  • South Africa

    May 06, 2022

    Time management is important

    I liked the fact that there was a lot of calculations in the questions because I am a very intellectual candidate and I love analysing problems with calculations.

  • Hong Kong

    May 04, 2022

    Good

    Couldn't figure out the answers for the first few questions. Inconvenient when you have to scroll up and down for the question and the data.

  • Nigeria

    April 12, 2022

    Time

    I think more time should be allowed. Also options are too close, considering you have to estimate figures on graphs.

  • Uganda

    April 10, 2022

    Understanding the Technicality of each Statistical Question

    The test was quite technical and it took me some time to wrap my head around understanding it. As a result, my time was spent fast.

  • France

    April 07, 2022

    Good test, but did not know the graphs were interactive

    You can see the exact numbers of the graphs if you scroll over. I did not know that and was using estimations.

  • Nigeria

    April 07, 2022

    Time consciousness

    It put me on my toes to do some calculations while working within the confinement of allotted time. It was a nice experience, all in all.

  • Singapore

    February 25, 2022

    Challenging

    I like that the test is very challenging, as it gives us a series of simple maths questions under time pressure.

  • Hong Kong

    February 01, 2022

    Maths

    It was like a math test which required lots of calculations. You would also need to understand the graphs/ tables quickly, which was quite challenging. Nice try anyways.
