KPMG 1-year placement programme - IT Advisory


About IT Advisory

Our Advisory professionals assist clients through a range of services relating to Management Consulting, Risk Consulting, Deal Advisory and Strategy. Together these services can help address a client's strategic needs in terms of growth (creating value), performance (enhancing value) and governance (managing value).

Our IT Advisory services allow our clients to harness the full potential of information technology in line with their business strategy and vision whilst also supporting or driving compliance with laws and regulation. Offering services through the life cycle, our IT Advisory professionals can also assist our clients through the implementation process to achieve measurable results. At KPMG's Consulting practice, we do not limit ourselves to either strategy or implementation. We deliver both. Our Hong Kong division is the fastest growing within KPMG China and represents a young and enthusiastic team that always pushes for success.
