Know KPMG do offer & promote exchanges with other global offices. However, is this possible during the graduate program? (I won't be tied into the ACA program etc.).

Most likely to be available 3-4 years in at the earliest. Training contract requirements aren't the only barrier in early years.

You need to demonstrate a business case for secondments - usually contributing UK expertise and bringing back foreign expertise (e.g. IFRS vs US GAAP, ISA vs PCAOB, International Tax etc) or as a specialist to work on specific projects.

It usually takes a couple of years at least to develop a useful level of expertise and firms like to use them as a carrot to retain newly qualifieds long term.

Thanks for the reply Avieness ! You seem to be well informed, so thought i'd run something else by you. I have industry working experience plus a masters- trying to make sure I can make use of those skills- will KPMG accommodate that?- Obviously everything revolves around business requirements. If not, is it possible to do work in other departments etc.? Would be good to hear your thoughts.

KPMG are big on secondments to other departments/service lines. Basically if you want it to happen and work for it (i.e talk to the right people), it is likely that it will.

International secondments happen as well, Australia and the US are the most common destinations (for obvious language reasons). Usually people go right after they qualify though it seems you have a background somewhat different to that.
