Financial Audit Traineeship
Your career as a registered accountant starts here
During the Financial Audit Traineeship, you work at KPMG while pursuing a university education to become a registered accountant (RA). The program structure depends on your educational background. There are trainees with a master's degree in accountancy, financial control, or business economics, as well as those with backgrounds further removed from these fields. No worries. The program may take a bit longer in such cases. However, a promising career as a registered accountant awaits you!
What do you do as a financial audit trainee?
You perform various tasks related to auditing financial statements. It is highly diverse because you get to see all aspects of a company: HR, costs, investments, revenue, profit, and more. If you want to specialize in a specific area, such as taxation within a company, you have the opportunity to do so. Alternatively, if you prefer working in a specific sector, the head office in Amstelveen has several specialized departments:
Consumer, Industrial Markets
Technology, Media & Telecommunications
If you work at one of the regional offices, you usually have a mix of clients, ranging from retailers to transportation companies and from housing corporations to wind turbine manufacturers. If you prefer to focus on a particular type of client, there are plenty of options available when you express your preference.
Financial audits are teamwork
The exciting part of the Financial Audit Traineeship is that you work on every audit in a diverse team. You collaborate with junior and senior auditors, supervisors, and experienced audit professionals. This allows you to continuously learn and share knowledge. Together, you work towards a thorough audit. When the financial statements are in order, KPMG issues an auditor's report, which is crucial for companies to conduct business and attract investments. With your work, you have an impact on the economy.
