KPMG Professionals Are...

Individuals who take deep personal accountability for their work, have a passion for excellence, driven to
achieve their full potential and understand the value of building relationships with clients, future clients,
their communities, the global firm and each other. A KPMG professional should have all the following

       Strong work ethic
       Thrive on challenges
       Dedicated to providing outstanding client service

Position Summary:
We have a variety of opportunities available:

       Full Time (full time positions include)
             o Direct to Audit (all offices)
             o Direct to Tax (all offices)
             o Direct to Advisory (limited offices)
       Coop (Audit- Halifax office)
Roles and Responsibilities:

Working at KPMG allows you to gain valuable on-the-job experience while meeting new friends and
building your business network. You will have the opportunity to experience what a career with KPMG is
really like. You’ll be working on real client engagements, adding value, and learning from a team of
experienced professionals.

The majority of CA candidates will join our Audit practice, although some locations do have available
opportunities for CA students in Tax and Advisory. The wide range of businesses and projects we work
on means that our people have huge variety in their roles. Client visits are an important part of most roles,
so you’ll be moving from environment to environment and experiencing a broad range of different
industries, locations, and businesses. This variation in the role means there is no set pattern for the types
of procedures and work you will be doing on a day-to-day basis.

At times, business needs arise and employees are required and agree to work beyond their normal work
day or work week to fulfill the accountabilities required for their job. Likewise, people need extra time to
devote to personal matters, and our approach to flexibility provides for this.

Functional Descriptions:


Our Audit practice helps organizations achieve their objectives and succeed by leveraging their
knowledge, measuring their performance, and managing their risks. Using our proprietary audit
methodology, our professionals bring exceptional rigor to a process that has been refined over many
years of serving global and local leaders in every major industry. As part of our Audit practice, you will
gain valuable experience by working with a team of talented professionals on challenging assignments.
You'll have the opportunity to see how an organization operates at all levels, and to work with many
different clients in varied industries. The knowledge and skills you gain will be invaluable to your career.


Our Tax professionals deliver high-value tax strategies for leading companies across the globe and right
next door. Our mandate is to help clients effectively manage their tax obligations both domestically and
globally. In today’s business climate, in Canada and around the world, taxation laws are growing more
complex and demanding. The tax advice we provide is essential to our clients’ success.


Our Advisory practice helps clients who are focused on change in their markets and in their businesses
— clients who are repositioning, driving new markets and products, acquiring new businesses, and
seeking efficiencies. As such, we are able to help clients enhance their operations; acquire and divest
businesses; manage risk through services such as forensic investigations and operational risk
management; and strengthen the backbone of their organizations through better internal controls and
enhanced regulatory compliance.
