Roles & Responsibilities
The fundamental role of an auditor is to report to the shareholders as to whether the company's annual accounts show a true and fair view of the company's financial activity. As well as to ensure that the accounts are presented in conformity with the prevailing legal and regulatory requirements.
As an auditor at KPMG, you will be doing much more than just looking at the company's financial records. You'll be finding out as much as you can about the whole company, the way it works, its products or services, its technology, its competitors and the industry in which it operates.
For the academic year 2021-2022, we are looking for interns for the following offices:
As an audit-trainee you'll be working within an audit team, where you'll assist in the audit of the annual account of several clients. This includes among other things:
- Updating the audit plan and the risk-analysis
- Following-up the confirmation procedure
- Verifying different sections of the cash balances and financial statements by using audit tools
- Monitoring the administrative organization and the internal controls
As an audit-trainee you'll be working both at the client and at the office. An internship in our Audit department gives you the opportunity to put your theoretical knowledge to use.
Skills & Qualifications
You will soon hold a university degree in Commercial Engineering, Commercial Sciences or (Applied) Economic Sciences. A master in Accountancy is an asset.
While we believe academic qualifications are an important pointer as to how you might succeed at our firm, these are far from being the only thing you'll be assessed on.
There are several other capabilities we believe you'll need to demonstrate while you're with KPMG:
- Client centricity
- Team work
- Problem solving skills
- Planning and organizing skills
- Communication skills (English, Dutch and French)
At KPMG, we truly believe our people are the heartbeat to our success. We commit ourselves to encouraging true team spirit and creating an international and dynamic working environment in which each can pursue the knowledge needed to boost their career. Additionally, as Top Employer, we highly invest in our people’s development of soft skills and technical knowhow.
