I joined KPMG in 2010, was promoted to manager in 2014 and then to director in 2018. The ability to work with large clients in various industries allows for a lot of different, interesting work. It varies every day and can often involve travel, which certainly makes the job more exciting.
We’re encouraged to actively engage and meet with clients as regularly as possible, which means we enhance our own internal networks and build strong working relationships with clients. One of my more interesting engagements involved a recent visit to Miami and the Cayman Islands to meet with one of the world’s largest asset management companies. This was the culmination of a few months of complex work but once the job was finished we were able to celebrate our efforts in a fantastic part of the world.
I joined KPMG in 2014 as a Tax Trainee and was recently promoted to Manager in February 2019. What I enjoy most about KPMG is the exposure to such a diverse portfolio of clients across a broad range of market sectors. I’ve had the opportunity to work on a variety of interesting projects with clients based both in Ireland and abroad, which is very insightful. There’s also a level of encouragement to express interest in sectors/projects you may not work in but would like exposure to.
I work with great people and there’s a brilliant formal and informal support network at all levels within the tax practice. There’s a huge focus on personal development and an excellent internal Business School invested in this, offering a wide range of courses and programmes in Ireland and abroad. I recently travelled to Budapest to attend an international investment management course.
I’m an Associate Director in KPMG’s Corporate Finance practice in Dublin. KPMG is a fantastic place to work. My career to date has focused on mergers and acquisitions and financing within KPMG Corporate Finance, with particular emphasis on renewable energy, real estate, private equity and private Irish business-related transactions. I enjoy working with business owners during key times in their journeys. I get particular satisfaction working on the decarbonisation agenda as Ireland seeks to transition from fossil fuels to renewable sources of energy.
In terms of career progression, in recent years I completed my training contract in 2016, was promoted to Manager in 2017, then again to Associate Director in 2019. It’s motivating to know that if you deliver what’s expected of you there are clear progression milestones.
KPMG is the number one firm in terms of personal opportunity and growth. I’ve been promoted twice since joining the firm and I’m currently a Director with our Management Consulting team. As part of our Management Consulting team, you get to work across different sectors and with different teams and competency areas.
I enjoy working for KPMG for many reasons but a lot of it comes down to working with really great people. There’s a real culture of support and ‘one team’. Everyone is approachable and more than willing to help out. This on-the-job support is supplemented by a really great training curriculum tailored to individuals and run by KPMG’s Business School. There’s a strong emphasis on personal development where people are supported throughout their career and progression within the firm.
Furthermore, there’s a great social side with quarterly team meetings and many other ad-hoc social gatherings in between.
I joined KPMG in February 2017. Since then, I’ve moved from being a Programme Coordinator to becoming a Programme Lead, I was to promoted to Assistant Manager in February 2019. In November 2020, I was promoted to Manager.
As part of my role, I’m lucky enough to work with many extraordinary people, which is my favourite part of working at KPMG. I’ve had the opportunity to work on projects with amazing and ambitious people from all our departments, helping me to grow and learn each day. KPMG invests heavily in its people and that’s clear through the wellbeing initiatives, investment in training and our huge Inclusion and Diversity agenda to name a few. Corporate Citizenship is also a core part of our values, which is something I’ve been involved in over the last few years. We get two days per year for it, so there’s no need to take the time from our annual leave.
