KPMG has been chosen as the second most attractive employer by over 75,000 students from the world’s top academic institutions.
In Universum’s annual ‘World Most Attractive Employer’ survey, the firm took the number two spot, below this year’s leader Google, for the third consecutive year.
Universum, a global talent consultant, develops the global index of the top 50 most attractive employers by asking students who are pursuing business and engineering degrees to identify their ‘ideal’ employer. Responses are gathered at leading academic institutions in the world’s 12 greatest economies – Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Russia, Spain, the US and the UK – to determine which companies excel in the attraction and retention of talent.
“We are committed to attracting and nurturing the finest talent in the Channel Islands. Our trainees have access to world class learning and development resources and the chance to gain globally recognised qualifications. The opportunities are endless,” said Debbie Smith, HR executive director at KPMG in the Channel Islands.
“Careers at KPMG are as rewarding as they are challenging and it is great that business students are recognising the passion, commitment to professional development and opportunities that we have on offer,” she said.
Mrs Smith found the accolade to be particularly meaningful because it was selected by business students themselves.
“We are very pleased in the knowledge that students across the globe have ranked us so highly for the third consecutive year. The survey draws from the opinions of those who matter the most in this respect, as they represent the future of KPMG and our clients.”
