“ Can you describe a day in the life of an auditor in London? Particularly as an experienced hire versus a manager? ”

Assistant Manager, KPMG UK

Hello! An experienced hire who has joined at manager grade would do the same work as a Graduate trainee who has progressed up to manager grade. So in that respect, no distinction between the two. Our London office is very large and you could find yourself at clients here in London, or out in the regions. A typical day could be spent in the office planning, or at clients completing audit assignments. Sophie B. works in audit (however in our Bristol office) and if you have any questions around completing audit assignments please do ask, as the core elements of an audit are the same regardless of which office you work in. Good luck!!!
