About KPMG Audit

Audit is essential for the operation of any business. An auditor conducts financial examinations to provide an opinion on whether clients’ financial reports provide an accurate reflection of their business. In the role you will be part of a team that conducts audits for business clients and provides a top class service ensuring that a company’s annual account, Profit and Loss accounts and balance sheet all represent a true and fair view of its financial activity.

The range of experience that you will get in KPMG’s Audit practice is varied. Perhaps the most obvious benchmark is the fact that we audit over 40% of the companies listed on the Irish Stock Exchange, companies such as Ryanair, Independent News and Media, Paddy Power, Greencore and Fyffes. However, we are also the predominant auditor to large private Irish companies, which is at the heart of the origins of KPMG. These businesses are the heart of the Irish economy and include names such as; Glen Dimplex, Barry’s Tea, Irish Food Processors and DCC.

Your experience will range from large public companies, with global operations and active mergers and acquisitions strategies, to vibrant Irish companies who are growing organically and who will become the listed companies of the future.
