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.

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.

KPMGs 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.

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.

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.

    percentage calculations

    The test practically gave a wide range of critical thinking before picking an answer and it also gave the ability to be sure about them before picking

  • May 14, 2024

    Tough but fair

    The test requires a lot of quick thinking and attention to detail. Furthermore you need to be careful not to rush especially when you are running out of time which is very representative of real-life scenarios

  • May 05, 2024

    Good questions for practice

    I like how the question only require simple thinking, and they are comprehensive. Dislike on alot of information, especially many values to calculate.

    it was good and informative. I was pressured by the limited allocated time to a question and for some I had to guess

    Interesting balance between speed and knowledge

    Interesting balance between speed and knowledge, not necessarily extremely complex, but the limited time keeps you on your toes, alongside the need to read extremely carefully of course.

    Be time conscious

    The tasks are well-timed and very engaging, time management is highly recommended. I enjoyed the more challenging questions which took some time to understand.

    Limited Time

    The assessment had many questions that required critical thinking but gave limited time in completing the assessment. I found the test challenging and competitive and enjoyed answering these questions but the time given was limited.

    I learnt that speed is of great essence. It's not enough to understand the questions, I have to be time conscious

    Test Review

    The questions are generally easy and simple but without high levels of accuracy and speed, you can easily score a zero.
