KPMG to hire 8,000 across Europe

KPMG hopes to recruit 8,000 people across Europe including 3,000 in the UK alone

KPMG hopes to hire 8,000 staff across its European operations in the next
three years, including 3,000 in the UK.

Europe and about 14,000 in the UK, the
Financial

reports.

KPMG is not the only Big Four firm to set its sights on increasing its
numbers. Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu recently announced that it intends to hire
more than 55,000 staff globally over the next five years.

John Griffith-Jones, joint senior partner of KPMG Europe, said: “It’s been a
couple of difficult years but we see lots of opportunities opening up again.”

According to a survey by Universum, a Stockholm based research company, KPMG
ranked second in an index of the world’s most appealing employers. It was
closely followed by Ernst & Young, PwC and Deloitte ranked third to fifth.
Google ranked first.
