What others have to say

Don’t take our word for it. Here’s what KPMG staff think.

Vincent Yu

Tax, Hong Kong

I joined KPMG Hong Kong in 2012 and decided to have an international experience in Ireland to learn about another way to work in KPMG and to experience a different culture. In KPMG Ireland, I am given the autonomy with suitable supervision to complete challenging tasks. I also have had different opportunities to attend external events to broaden my network and connections. There is extensive support and guidance offered within the firm, which allowed me to settle quickly. Beside work, Ireland is a beautiful country with a lot of friendly and helpful people. The rest of Europe is easily accessible from Dublin, if one fancies a weekend trip.

Kathie Li

Audit, USA

Going on an international rotation to Dublin has been one of the most rewarding decisions I've made, on a professional and a personal level. This journey has provided countless new learning opportunities, from working with colleagues and clients of diverse backgrounds to gaining a new perspective from my peers. Like many others at the firm, I frequently say I love working at KPMG for the people and the culture, and the Dublin office is no exception.

Matheus Mouraria

Corporate Finance, Brazil

I joined KPMG Deal Advisory department in Brazil in 2012, and envisaged the opportunity of joining a mobility programme to further develop my career and skills. KPMG Corporate Finance is the leading advisor in the infrastructure sector and M&A in Ireland (and globally), and has given me the opportunity to participate in high profile projects with relevant clients. Ireland is a thriving country and has one of the most dynamic business environments in Europe. It is also a hub to international companies and investors, attracting people from around the globe. Being in Dublin has enabled me to work in a challenging environment with top class professionals, leading business development opportunities and large scale projects.

Nicola Wasserfall

Risk Consulting, South Africa

I started working at KPMG South Africa a little over three years ago and, thanks to the KPMG Global Mobility programme, I have had the opportunity to work in Dublin and have just moved to Ireland for a two year secondment, as a manager in Risk Consulting. The Irish office provide services to a large variety of clients and I have had the opportunity to work on multiple projects that have allowed me to grow technically and professionally.I have enjoyed working with my new Irish colleagues and value their commitment to delivering on projects with efficiency and a high level of quality. They have also ensured that I have felt incredibly welcome in their beautiful country from the day I started. Ireland was a great choice!

Keren Solloh

Audit, Kenya

‘Never arrive, never stop learning and growing’ is my mantra. In line with this mantra, an international experience was in the cards for me and when the opportunity to come to Ireland came up I was excited to take it up. Ireland’s vibrant economy and diverse culture has offered an opportune environment to further cultivate my knowledge in financial services audit. At KPMG Ireland, I have been positively challenged and exposed to new insights and knowledge. I am placed in an amazing team with great leadership where I feel valued, well mentored and fully integrated into the team. KPMG Ireland is a great choice.
