what other cities do you consider second best besides London?
Manchester? Cambridge? Reading?

i had my 1st round interview on 3Nov and they emailed me today saying the graudate audit programme in london is filled up. they offered me a choice of alternative office or an alternative graduate programme with vacancies in London office.

i’m thinking of nottingham office cos im staying in notts. anyone know about kpmg nottingham office? how many ppl are working?

I am worried other KPMG offices may fill up quite early too. This early fill up didnot happen elsewhere and London vacancies are still open with PwC, Deloitte and may even with EY.

After reading the KPMG list I have observed following cities are now closed : London , Gatwick, Reading, St Albans and Bristol. It was logical to see them closed because London was the first one to get filled and so as a result the next choices for everyone were cities like gatwick reading St Albans etc.

I made the right decision not to go for cities closer to london once I was diverted away from London.

Depends where you’re gonna end up though…

#8

where did you choose?
i chose birmingham, but no further details regarding when there will be an assessment centre

#9

#13

thank you Uzairch, i contacted Caroline yesterday and she suggested me to attend an AC at another city because 26 Nov is full already.

#14

Another date or another city? You want to choose another city ?

#15

how did you contact KPMG, phone call or email? how long did they reply to you? i emailed them on Thursday and haven’t got their reply yet.

To xo, if u applying for another city, does it affect your china programme application?

#16
