KPMG has launched ‘Return to Work’, a 12 week internship programme for people looking to return to the workforce after an extended career break. The programme will start in January 2017 and is aimed at Tax and Management Consultancy professionals who have taken a career break of 18 months or more. Management Consulting roles are based in London, and Tax roles in London, Glasgow, Birmingham or Manchester.

What does the programme involve?

Participants will work on client facing assignments depending on your expertise, interests and skills. You will receive mentoring and coaching to help set and achieve your objectives, and networking events will take place to support your transition back into work.
