KPMG’s member firms will hire approximately 75,000 campus graduates worldwide over the next three years, a 25% increase in the firm’s historical on-campus resourcing target. In doing so it will place special emphasis on the Asia Pacific region.
The global member firm network has identified a need to bring approximately 250,000 new hires on board. They will be integrated into all of KPMG’s functional areas: Audit, Tax, Advisory, and Internal Firm Services.
Alim Dhanji, Global Head of Resourcing for KPMG International, said:
While KPMG’s firms plan to hire a large number of new graduate employees, it’s important to note that our focus is about more than simply high volumes – it’s about recruiting top talent to drive our growth now and into the future. To attract the best, we offer new graduates the opportunity to work alongside talented professionals in 150 countries.
One of KPMG’s strongest performing regions and a pillar within the firm’s global strategy, Asia Pacific (ASPAC) continues to be a focus for market share expansion. As such, KPMG has elected to host its 2012 KPMG International Case Competition (KICC) in Hong Kong to support its recruitment objectives. The competition will involve 6,000 students across 300 universities in 30 countries.
“Globalization is increasingly impacting our clients’ world, so ensuring our future leaders have a strong understanding of global business complexities is critical to our business,” said Rachel Campbell, Global Head of People for KPMG International.
