    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at KPMG International (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    This was a panel interview, asking very standard questions. Not that taxing if you do your research about the company and the team. They were interested in my industry knowledge and asked me a few probing questions on that.

    Interview

    Stage 1: Online Application Form

    The application form is your chance to tell us about your academic background and any work experience. It should take about 20 minutes to complete.

    Stage 2: Situational Judgement Test

    After you’ve submitted your application form, you’ll receive a link to a Situational Judgement Test (SJT) within one working day. The SJT presents you with hypothetical, challenging situations that you could encounter at work as a trainee with KPMG. In response to each situation, you have a choice of possible actions you can take to deal with it. The SJT takes around 30 minutes to complete. You will need to complete it within 7 days – please do not apply until you have sufficient time to take the tests within the specified time limit.

    Stage 3: Online Numerical and Verbal Reasoning Tests

    If you’re successful in your SJT, you’ll be asked to sit the online verbal reasoning test and the numerical reasoning test. Each test will take around 20 minutes, so make sure you have enough time before you begin. You will need to complete them within 7 days – please do not apply until you have sufficient time to take the tests within the specified time limit. Designed especially for KPMG, they’re not only used to see how good you are at reading and maths. They look at your ability to analyse numerical and verbal data – skills that you’ll need on the job.

    Stage 4: First Round Interview

    If you’re successful in the reasoning tests, you’ll be invited to join a telephone interview that should last around 45 minutes. We will try to ensure the interview is with someone from the business area you’ve applied to and it will focus on your behavioural capabilities through KPMG’s competency and scenario based questions.

    Stage 5: Immersive Assessment Centre

    On the Assessment Day we’ll provide background information about a fictional organisation based on KPMG. All activities during the day will be based on the fictional organisation for you to experience a ‘day in the life’ of a KPMG trainee:
    ■The Virtual Office Exercise is laptop-based. Simulating day-to-day situations, you’ll be given messages (for example, emails, voicemails) and expected to prioritise and deal with various tasks within a time limit.
    ■The Analysis Exercise is also laptop-based and lasts around an hour. We’ll ask you to review complex information and present your recommendations in written form.
    ■Lunch is your chance to relax, meet some of our trainees and hear their views about life at KPMG.
    ■Two Simulated Meetings assess how you’d handle a client and an internal meeting. This exercise is designed to give you a real insight into the types of meetings you could find yourself in at KPMG.

    Succeed on the assessment day and you’ll be invited back to the office you’ve applied for to meet a Partner or Director from your chosen area.

    Stage 6: Final Interview

    This will be more in-depth than the first round interview. If you’ve applied for our Advisory or Central Services, Sales and Marketing business areas, we will also ask you to prepare a presentation.

    If you are unsuccessful you will be informed and we will follow up with an email to confirm the decision and offer the option to request feedback.
