KPMG goes on Iraq recruitment drive
Accountants with an 'adventurous streak' are being sought by KPMG to join its recently established Baghdad office.
The firm has set up a 16 man office and is looking for senior managers, tax managers and auditors.
In the job description the region is described as ‘one of the fastest growing and most rapidly changing business environments in the world’ and applicants with a ‘desire for adventure and a familiarity and understanding of Middle Eastern culture’ are asked to submit their CVs.
KPMG says it expects to be involved in work across acquisitions, due diligence, valuation and business assessment projects.
Despite the instability of the region, the profession has shown a strong interest in setting up operations in the region.
Along with KPMG, Ernst & Young has re-opened an office in Baghdad.
