KPMG - Jan 09 start dates

#1

Does anyone know if people who have accepted KPMG offers (from last year) for start in January 2009 - have actually begun? i.e. did they start at the beginning of january or do they start at the end of january this year?

#2

I would have thought it would be towards the end of Jan. There’d be a bit of work to catch up on after Christmas and my guess is that newbies would clutter things up a bit… anyone?

#3

KPMG do Jan start dates? For which area, audit or tax??

#4

Yeah I can confirm there are January start dates, as I am starting with KPMG in Jan 2010.

#5

joyrevision - do you know when the exact start date is? is it at beginning or end of jan?

#6

When I emailed KPMG asking about January start dates they sent back the following:
"Dear Tom,

Apologies for the delay in replying. We only offer a summer start date,
so we will start recruiting for 2010 between July and September 2009.

Kind regards
Graduate Recruitment"

joyrevision - What service line and office are you starting work with in 2010?

Not got a specific date, won’t until about 6 weeks before starting. I’m doing Tax.

#8

thb they said the exact same thing when I called them up! But they obviously do Jan start dates…Whats the point in them lying? lol.

#9

it depends on their offices. london don’t have jan start dates whereas some regional ones do.

#10

I don’t really think its lying per se, its probably budgetary decisions which’ve shifted start dates back into 2010 etc.
