Analyst – CIO Advisory, KPMG UK

Thank you for your question. I have applied to KPMG because they are one of the leading advisory companies in the world. The company is great as there are so many smart, friendly and diverse people that you can be learning from, catapulting your career early on. The learning curve is very steep. This career equips you with learning the soft skills - communication with impact and logic, ability to present ideas / findings in a coherent and structured way, interpersonal skills and of course depending on the area you are in deep industry knowledge and best practice . This career makes you very agile and resilient person, who can deal well with ambiguity.
