‘This role seemed to offer good prospects…the chance to gain an additional qualification whilst being paid and learning on the job.’

Becky Donnelly, assistant manager, Infrastructure, Government & Healthcare (IGH) UK Audit at KPMG LLP, never expected to be an accountant. After completing a degree in Politics at the University of Leeds, Becky applied for a couple of different graduate schemes, but finance proved the best option.

Becky currently works in the audit and advisory team for the KPMG Infrastructure, Government and Healthcare department. ‘I am now an Assistant Manager on a number of public sector clients, offering external and internal audit, but also work on smaller projects such as helping NHS clients deal with the current reforms.’

Becky decided to undertake the ACCA Qualification to broaden her horizons, saying it ‘appealed to me due to the international nature…it offers the flexibility to work abroad in the future’.
