KPMG announces apprentice scheme for fraud investigators

Big Four accountant annnounces three-year apprentice scheme in its risk-consulting division

KPMG has announced a new apprenticeship scheme within its fast-growing “risk consulting” division.

Canary Wharf offices in London, within its Risk Consulting practice.

There will initially be 20 places on the three-year scheme, which will start in October and be based in the Big Four accountant’s Canary Wharf office in London.

Apprentices can chose between working and study towards an accounting qualification with the Association of Accountant Technicians or a technology qualification.

At the end of the three years apprentices can continue their studies – for example, taking full chartered accountancy exams – or follow another career path at KPMG.

Risk consulting, which includes assessing and mitigating financial risks, fraud investigations and technology, is the fastest-growing service line at KMPG, it said. In KPMG’s 2011 financial year revenues from risk consulting increased by more than 40%.

Last year, KPMG, said that it would pay the university and professional tuition fees for around 75 school leavers starting at Durham University.

As part of a six-year training programme, leading to a chartered accountancy qualification and a job with KPMG, the school leavers will take a four-year BSc degree in accounting.
