No, just a handwritten exercise and an interview where we'll be looking for you to demonstrate KPMG's Behavioural Capabilities

Oh great! What types of questions will be asked? How much knowledge about KPMG are we expected to know?

Graduate Recruitment Coordinator, KPMG UK

You'll be expected to have an understanding of the company and programme as well as being able to demonstrate evidence of our Behavioural Capabilities. The questions will be competency based, including a number of scenario-based questions as well

Or thinking of times when you've demonstrated these before so you've got them in your mind when the questions come up

Since I'm a school leaver I can use scenarios of working with pupils and what I done to overcome difficulties? Such as being an enthusiastic individual, thriving of challenges and tasks and also being able to help others when they need help: communication skills. I have applied for the London business apprenticeship

Absolutely - we appreciate that candidates will have limited work experience, so do use any examples you think might be relevant.

How many people did you take in per city?

That's right Zayba. Sadia - numbers differ per office, I'm not sure how many London will be taking in this year but if you've already applied early, that is a good start!
