As a leading professional services firm, we know that our strength and capability come from our people – their different perspectives, experiences and backgrounds. From our inclusive leadership strategy to our diversity and inclusion targets – we’re making bold changes to who we are and what we do. Be part of it.

KPMG is one of the leading audit practices in the UK whose success and reputation depends upon the quality and integrity of our services - and our people. If you join our audit team, you could benefit from increased amounts of training and education to keep you up to speed with current changes in audit regulation and accounting and auditing standards.

Across the three, we service clients in a wide variety of industries in most Corporate, Financial Services and Public Sector sectors. Clients include Renishaw plc, Unite Group plc, BBC, General Electric, Admiral plc, Barchester Healthcare and a number of Housing Associations.

The department is led by seven Partners and five Directors and is supported by other services; including Corporate Tax, Indirect Tax, Pensions, Corporate Finance, Transactions Services and Restructuring. We have seen significant growth over the last four years and we are now looking to further grow the team. If you are a highly motivated newly qualified accountant with experience of leading audit teams on clients on a range of both IFRS and UK GAAP, then we’d like to hear from you. We are also able to provide US GAAP and SOX experience in role. Our staff are always flexible and are expected to work across the region to get the best possible experience and exposure.

The office has the mix of working with big organisations whilst also maintaining that close-knit office environment. All offices have canteen facilities.

We are looking for qualified accountants to join the audit practice in our Bristol office. As an Assistant Manager you will get to work with a wide range of clients within a cross functional office. Our client base is from a wide range of business sectors, ranging in size from owner-managed businesses to multi-national organisations. Many of our clients are subsidiaries of overseas companies giving our work a truly international perspective.
