KPMG joins rivals on new hiring spree

first_img Tags: NULL KCS-content Share BIG FOUR accounting firm KPMG has joined the ranks of its accountancy rivals as it plans to recruit 8,000 new staff across Europe within the next three years. The hiring spree, as reported in the Financial Times, will see the firm’s British arm grow by 3,000 new staff over the period.Once the recruitment drive is done, KPMG will have bolstered its headcount in the UK from 11,000 to 14,000 and its European offices, excluding France and Italy, will increase to 38,000 employees. The move by KPMG follows similar announcements by Big Four rivals Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu and Ernst & Young (E&Y).Deloitte revealed plans earlier this year to add 55,000 new staff across its global office network in the next five years, while hiring plans for E&Y are expected later today. John Griffith-Jones, joint partner of KPMG’s European business, said that although the past few years have been difficult, the audit giant sees a lot of opportunities opening up again. Accounting firms were hit hard during the recession, with the largest firms recently receiving criticism for their auditing practices. whatsapp whatsapp KPMG joins rivals on new hiring spree center_img by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan Times Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?
