Joao Albuquerque, KPMG
Audit assistant (apprentice), London
‘I knew from the start that I didn’t want to go to university so when it got to the time of year when everyone started their applications, my college helped me look for an apprenticeship instead. KPMG stood out among the firms because of their rotational apprenticeship programme. At KPMG you rotate between audit, tax and advisory, whereas the other Big Four firms make you choose a specific service line when applying for their apprenticeships.
