168 graduates join KPMG East Africa regional offices

Audit and consulting firm, KPMG, has hired 168 graduates who will serve in its Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania offices. The Kenya office has absorbed 94 of the graduates while 74 new employees will join the three EAC countries.

The graduates were welcomed by KPMG East Chief Executive Josephat Mwaura and will undergo training before being posted in tax, advisory or audit.


The recruitment for the graduate trainees started in February and attracted over 7,000 applications. KPMG said the rigorous hiring process picked the best individuals who had to be under 25 years old and graduated within the last two years.

In addition, the graduates – who come from all academic courses – must have graduated with a second upper degree or a 3.5 GPA, a minimum in B in KCSE with B- in English and Math. Professional qualifications were considered an added advantage while a minimum of 15 hours in community work was mandatory.

“As Chief Employee Officer, I require that all KPMG new graduates join purely on merit. Mistakes are corrected at the earliest opportunity,” said Mwaura.

Mwaura added the firm was keen on identifying young people with character, ‘we want people who can be entrusted with brands, clients and the community.
