After the interview, on the Assessment Day, you will be provided with information regarding a fictional KPMG-like organisation. You will then be given a chance to complete various activities (listed below) based on this organisation. The purpose of this exercise is to provide you with an idea of what a KPMG trainee undergoes on a daily basis.
The Virtual Office Exercise is laptop-based. You will be expected to deal with multiple messages (such as emails and voicemails) at once, within a time limit. This task tests your ability to prioritise and your ability to deal with various things at once.
The Analysis Exercise is also laptop-based and lasts around an hour. You will be asked to review complex information and write down your recommendations.
Lunch is a perfect opportunity for you to meet other KPMG trainees and get an inside look into the KPMG experience.
Two Simulated Meetings assess how you’d handle a client and an internal meeting. This provides you with a flavour of the type of meetings that take place at KPMG.
Succeed on the assessment day and you’ll be invited back to complete a final interview.
