Euan West, Leeds office senior partner at KPMG UK, said:
“Graduates and apprentices are at the core of our business, so I’m pleased to be welcoming the latest cohort to our Leeds office as we look to build on our strong presence in this fantastic city and support our clients, who range from the region’s fastest growing scale-up businesses through to some of the largest listed Plc’s in the region.

“Graduates and apprentices are not only the future of our firm, but they provide new ideas and ways of solving problems that mean we can continue providing the very best service to our clients.

“It is great to see so many young people keen to join our office in Leeds and is a testament to the city’s pull – it’s a great place to live and work. As more and more companies, and the Government, are moving out of London and into cities like Leeds, it is proving to people that you don’t have to be in London to have a well-paid, rewarding career – we offer them right here, on our doorstep.”

Across the UK, nearly 1,200 graduates and apprentices have joined KPMG in Autumn 2021.
